About My Primary Tutor

from director Karen Simpson

I became a primary teacher in 2004 after completing my teaching degree from the University of Edinburgh.  Following this, I enjoyed a number of years teaching in different schools in the Highlands.  In 2012, after finishing an acting Deputy Head Teacher post, I took a career break to have a family.  It was during this time I began tutoring as a way of maintaining my teaching skills.  I started working with local children, offering one-to-one and small group sessions, in my summer house in my garden. I saw children’s confidence soar as they made connections in their learning and realised how important "Creating Confidence in Learning" is for children's development.  Through word of mouth, I quickly became quite busy and it was from there My Primary Tutor was established. Since 2017 it has gone from strength to strength, growing each year and winning some awards along the way!
