Jemma was nominated for a Pearson Teaching Award by her whole school; her Head of Department wrote, “I have been a Mathematics teacher for almost 20 years and Jemma is, without question, not only the best Mathematics teacher I have ever seen teach, she is also the best teacher I have ever seen teach.” She is truly inspirational; she has a gift for enabling students to have an excellent understanding of even the most difficult aspects of Mathematics.
