London Bright Sparks is made up of a small and dedicated team.
This allows us to get to know you personally and have a better understanding of the needs of all of our students. This means that whoever you speak to will have a good understanding of your exact situation and will be able to offer advice according to your situation.
Jack is the founder of London Bright Sparks…
“I was born in London but grew up in Suffolk, attending Stowupland High School from 1999-2004, a new rural school which attracted some incredible teachers and gave me my first experience of what a great education looks like: organisation, passion from teachers about their subject and a real drive to widen student horizons and enrich their education through extra-curricular activities.
I attended Emmanuel College, Cambridge where I followed my love of History. Though split my time in equal measure between performing plays, writing music and organising events across the university.
On leaving university, I began working at Haggerston School in Hackney as a SEN (Special Educational Needs) and EAL (English as an Additional Language) Teaching Assistant, gaining classroom experience and getting to observe and work with a wide variety of learning needs and behavioural issues.
During this time I began tutoring and mentoring students and have since supported over a fifty students around the world from the age of 5 up to 21. I gained a CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching for Adults) in 2015 which helped me to develop my teaching practice further.
In 2016 I lived in Cambodia, working as an English and Cultural Studies teacher and at the University of Battambang. It was during this time in Cambodia that I became aware of the incredible work that See Beyond Borders were doing in rural schools across the district of Battambang.
On returning to the UK in 2017 I decided to create an educational company which not only provided enriching and nurturing support to students, but that would help fund and facilitate the educational projects that See Beyond Borders were overseeing in Cambodia.”
