After studying French, Italian and Spanish at the University of Hull, Jo spent two years in Paris where she taught English as a language assistant at the Sorbonne. She also worked for a business travel company, as a Sales Support Writer. She then returned to London and joined a global magazine publishing company where she worked as an International Advertising Manager and enjoyed establishing and developing relationships with clients and colleagues all over the world.
Jo has more recently gained experience working in primary schools and as a private tutor. She is qualified in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) - she loves to communicate with people of different nationalities and to help them progress with their English. In her spare time Jo volunteers for a project encouraging children to develop their creative writing skills.
Jo is passionate about education, languages and literacy. She is delighted to be working with the ReadingWise programme as it provides an opportunity to help support students who are struggling with literacy.
