Education is my passion - It is I believe, the greatest social leveller - it matters not whether you are a cleaner or a countess, a dustbin man or a duke - because a good education can transcend every social barrier and put an individual on a sound foundation, upon which, they can build a future and achieve every conceivable ambition!

Through my business, The Association of Professional Tutors I aim to ensure that students and tutors alike are able to conduct their transactions in a safe, dependable and well-managed manner, while providing a flexible, yet sound regulatory environment. We promote fair competition, encourage innovative development, and support the economy of private tuition. As a proponent of self governance, APT  is tireless about maintaining  best industry practices.

I have also worked as a corporate and private tutor for more than a decade and can boast a genuine 100% pass rate, During my time as a subject adviser with ILEX I was responsible for 100's of students undertaking Jurisprudence (legal philosophy).

I'm not only about work - I'm a fun loving woman with an insatiable zest for life. I love life, the tears too ... I'm also a bit of a master in the kitchen! OK, so self praise is no recommendation but watch this space ... I will share some of my favourite foodie experiences with you.

Aside from food, I love legal debate especially on those matters that potentially affect my daily life, for example contract law,  tort (negligence, nuisance, defamation), constitutional law (human rights, right to protest etc). From time to time I write short stories, I've even been known to comment on topical headlines ;-) Join my fan club for the thought-provoking and some fun !
