Pre GCSE & GCSE English & English Literature; Study Skills Years 7 & 8.
I am a learner continuing to develop my skills and those of my students. I hold a Master’s Degree in English Literature at Durham University, where I have supported students with their English and Study Skills.
I enjoy tutoring English by helping students develop skills to benefit them in all walks of life; as better writers and communicators. Good English skills including analysis and writing can increase success in all subjects, not just humanities.
Supporting students with our Study Skill Course is another passion of mine. By actively developing good study skills and learning strategies, students keep their motivation high and achieve their goals more easily and efficiently.
When I don’t have my nose in a book, you can find me out on the water, rowing and coxing, or out for a run.
Primary through GCSE Maths
Since I qualified as a teacher at Leicester University, I have been active in the local education system based in Guernsey, Channel Islands.
Having been a tutor for years, I converted to online tutoring in March 2020. I now enjoy tutoring students and helping them to unlock their understanding of maths.
I enjoy sewing patchwork, learning to play the accordion and anything to do with the sea.
NOTE: Sally is able to take a complex mathematical concept and break it down into easy-to-understand language.

PRE-GCSE & GCSE Maths
I am a psychology graduate with a Masters in Psychological Research Methods. Since university, I have worked in many fields to develop my clinical skills with the aim of becoming a clinical psychologist. I currently work as an assistant psychologist with NHS Wales. These have given me plenty of skills that I can use in my tutoring sessions!
I started tutoring in Guernsey with face to face sessions but now I am based in Wales and have done online sessions since 2020.
I particularly love researching how the brain works and how our knowledge of it is ever-growing.
I am an avid baker, reader and lover of crafts. I am always trying to expand my skill set and I am currently trying to develop my crochet skills!
TechClub: Scratch & Mechatronics
I have a passion for seeding children’s minds with new tools and then watching for that ‘aha!’ moment - when the tools enable them to create something new.
Technology that is almost invisible to us fills our lives. Our courses, Scratch and Mechatronics, aim to open up that world of programming and so-called ‘physical computing’ so our children no longer take it for granted.
I'm dedicated to giving my students the experience that empowers them to design, modify and create the world around them. Register Now
