Meet The Team

Here at Jacqui Robinson Education, we are all able and ready to work together with you to ensure that your child is able to reach their full potential.


Jacqui Robinson

As a teacher for over 35 years, Jacqui began her career teaching in a Grammar School. She felt it was obvious that small group tutoring was the perfect way to teach, because of this she worked evenings and weekends teaching private students at her kitchen table.

In 1999, Jacqui left the very prestigious independent school, New Hall, to dedicate herself full time to tutoring.
