About me

I graduated in 2010 with a 2:1 degree in Psychology and Criminology.

I have a post graduate degree in Criminal Justice with Merit and have over 6 years experience working as a Probation Officer for the Ministry of Justice (HMPPS). Throughout my career I have worked with adults which can include helping them identify and achieve their goals, improve problem solving skills, develop their individual skills and traits. I have experience working with adults with differing learning styles and attributes such as dyslexia, ADHD as well as those who have been out of the education system for some time.

I have a wealth of knowledge of the criminal justice system in addition to psychology. I am very happy to be helping you on your journey to learn.

I am passionate about bringing out the best in people and helping them achieve to the best of their ability. I am honest and reliable and can offer constructive feedback and support for your learning.

I have specific interests in social injustice, including poverty, racism and the criminal justice system. This extends to having a passionate interest in policy making. I am an associate board member for 'we are telescope' a social innovative organisation who aim to bring frontline workers and policy makers together to make improved policy decisions.

I am a mum of 2 young children which helps many parents who are studying as adults relate to me and ensure flexibility given your schedules.

*I hold public liability insurance and am registered to pay tax in the UK which can be produced prior to your lesson.
