About Us

Hello there!

Welcome to the Geek Worms Club website – part of the Geek school Tutoring portfolio of websites!

I’m Joycellyn Akuffo, the managing director of Geek School Tutoring.

I am a journalist with more than a decade’s experience. I have worked on some of the UK’s top women’s magazine titles – from BBC Good Homes to Cosmopolitan and Glamour magazine and the more ‘serious’ business titles…more than 20 titles in all. My media background comes in very handy when helping children with the creative writing element of the 11 plus preparation. There’s nothing more satisfying than looking at the amazement on the faces of the children I tutor when I show them how they can bring their words to life – and actually enjoy it.

I’m also a mother of two children, so I have good experience of how children learn – and having out my eldest child through the 11 Plus process, I understand many of the concerns that parents have. I’ve been tutoring children for the 11 Plus (including mine) for the best part of eight years, and I know how to get the best out of them so they can start to shine – in time for those exams!

Over the past decade, I have produced numerous products and courses to help children with their writing, spelling and vocabulary, and the Geek Worms Club is a culmination of all the best parts of that process – with a sprinkle of fun for your child!

I also have a YouTube channel where I share tips and advice for parents and children alike! Please join our bustling community!
