Reading and Writing Tutor

“I just wanted to formally thank you for all you have done for Jacob. His confidence and writing has really improved, so much so that his teacher positively commented on his ‘new and neat style’ today. I am amazed how much you have helped in such a short time. Thanks very very much”.  J. Bradshaw, March 2012 [Tutee’s handwriting improved within 3 sessions]

“Chantelle provided excellent educational help and support for our 10 year old son over the Summer. She has a gentle professional manner conducive to learning and I would definitely recommend her.” C. Smith, October 2011

“I am more than happy to recommend Chantelle as a tutor. Chantelle shows a genuine interest in encouraging and bringing the best out of my son with the time she spends with him. She has an array of material at hand to stretch his imagination and encourage creative thought processes which in turn enable him to appreciate reading and writing is more than just something required of him in the education system. A sufficient amount of time has not yet passed to be able to see how much my son has progressed but I have no doubt his reading skills and creativity are improving, which will also enhance his confidence.” T.Harvey, mother of tutee, April, 2010 [Tutee’s reading moved up two levels, as reported in his year end results in July 2010]

Teaching and Mentoring

“Chantelle has a deep understanding of the learning process and how best to facilitate this across the age and ability range. She is effective because she gives learners responsibility for developing their own learning within a structured framework whilst supporting them with a patient and caring approach. Having worked with Chantelle and witnessed the creation of her many education programmes, I would have no hesitation in recommending her to you as tutor, web specialist and project manager. Her experience and achievements are outstanding.”  Malcolm Burrows, Head of Secondary Education, The Holocaust Centre, May 2010

“If there’s ever been anyone who inspired me academically in school, it’s Chantelle. She always knew how to push you further, but always gently…  if I ever get through my PhD, I’d dedicate it to her.”  Jarina Jani, student at STF in 1991, student at Edinburgh University, 18th July, 2010

In her work, Chantelle is always highly reliable, effective and focused on producing the best possible outcomes and outputs for everyone involved. This is particularly important as she works in highly sensitive areas that require an in-depth understanding of complex issues and good people skills. Chantelle has demonstrated that she can deliver work in her key areas of activity to an extremely high standard and I recommend her wholeheartedly.” Rolf Wiesemes, Senior Research Fellow, University of Nottingham, February 26, 2010

“I have known Mrs.Chantelle Meckenstock since we started the History Speaks Romania project in 2007.  Mrs. Meckenstock has proved to have exceptional organizational and communication skills. Her enthusiasm is contagious.  Her workshops have been useful, to the point, creative and highly appreciated by both students and trainees.   She has proved a high degree of responsibility in everything she has done. In addition to being sociable, flexible and ready to share ideas with us she is decisive, cooperative and always sympathetic to the needs of the people around her.” Elza Gheorghiu, History Speaks, Romanian project coordinator, Iasi, April 2009

“The development of the History Speaks project is principally down to the work and organisation of Chantelle Meckenstock . She was a driving force behind the setting up of the project and has coordinated the various developments that have led to this unique development. Chantelle has a deep knowledge of Holocaust education, a passion for helping young people understand these crucial events and an excellent appreciation of the power that web 2 developments can have in educational settings.” Gary Mills, B.A., PGCE, MA,  Senior Lecturer, University of Nottingham, April 2009

“Having worked with Chantelle, I can confidently say that she not only has the technical qualifications and mental aptitude for project management and teaching, but she has also demonstrated the leadership, management ability, technical expertise, oral and written skills necessary to succeed in her endeavors. I have observed these skills in Chantelle first hand when I was on tour in 2006. Her level of dedication and performance was of great impact to the team and she consistently displayed insight and knowledge on what was required. Chantelle’s unique combination of her skills with a high level of moral and ethical standards has been critical to her personal and professional development. It is my belief that she will succeed in any undertaking largely because of her determination to adhere to these standards and accomplish her goals with integrity.” Hope Azeda, Artistic Director, Mashirika, August, 2010.

“I have known Chantelle Meckenstock since she was appointed Education Development Officer, later Education Projects Officer, at the Holocaust Centre, UK, in 2002. As a member of the Centre’s Management Board, and also as its Publications Editor, I have worked closely with her for the past seven years, both involved in larger team work and in more individual projects. I have, therefore, seen Chantelle’s work at close hand and have nothing but praise for her loyalty, dedication to the organisation and deep commitment to her work.” Dr Wendy Whitworth, Holocaust Centre, November, 2009

“I have known Chantelle Meckenstock for a number of years through her work at The Holocaust Centre. She is dedicated, conscientious, courteous and exceptionally versatile.

I recommend her strongly.” Martin Stern, Educator, The Holocaust Centre, Laxton, Nottinghamshire, UK (colleague) February 25, 2010
