Before launching Learning Unlocked we taught in the post-primary sector for over 20 years. We love teaching and are passionate about improving the life chances of children and young people through education. As parents with three children currently going through the education system, we understand the challenges that families face.

As teachers, however, we also understand the incredible pressure that schools are under to deliver individualised learning support to their students. We set up Learning Unlocked in 2020 with a desire to get back to the heart of teaching – helping individual students. We long to make a difference to those students who get lost in the crowd and to bring hope to parents who can often feel like no one is listening to what their child actually needs to make learning happen.

Our priority is to provide a professional service that is hallmarked by excellent customer care. When parents come to us, we want them to feel reassured that we are invested in the success of their child and that we have the expertise to ensure that quality teaching and learning take place.

Our combined academic, professional and leadership experience has equipped us to lead a dynamic team of professional tutors who inspire students to get motivated, get ready and get the results they desire.
