Deborah qualified as a secondary science teacher in 2008 and went on to assess and support students with various learning needs in English and Maths at Hereford College of Technology/Holme Lacy. In 2010 she became a functional skills tutor and taught English, Maths and ICT up to Level 2. She currently works as a functional skills co-ordinator/tutor, and offers home tuition to students who need support and encouragement to improve their understanding and confidence in Maths, English and Science. Whether at Primary level or GCSE she enjoys watching a child make progress and become excited about the learning process. Her experience has proven just how much a child’s ability to learn improves away from the pressure of a school classroom.
