Hi, I'm Lindsey, an online maths tutor for 6 - 11 year olds.
Before I started my company Reach Online Tutoring, I was a primary school teacher and deputy head. I have over 2 decades of teaching experience. I've seen the impact that a lack of confidence and gaps in learning have on children's progress. My main passion is to and I'm passionate about helping children to become confident, happy mathematicians.
Children learn in different ways, at different speeds and need different support. As a class teacher, knowing that I could make a difference to children’s lives was the best part of my job.
I struggled with maths at school, which I strongly believe helps me to be a better maths teacher. I have that empathy – I understand the frustrations of the children who struggle with it and I can help them to get over their hurdles and move forwards more confidently.

I’m aware that children learn in many different ways and the need to find the way that works best for each child. I believe in the importance of developing a growth mindset and accepting that mistakes are a natural and important part of learning.
Time spent on helping to develop children’s confidence and self-belief is so worthwhile and can have such a positive impact on their progress. I implemented growth mindset strategies in my teaching and promoted this approach throughout school in my leadership capacity.
I’ve realised that through tutoring, I can use my vast experience to support children and their parents, unpick their barriers to learning and do what I love best - teaching and making a difference.
As a parent of two children, I understand how busy family life can be, and how knowing that your child is getting the support they need is such a weight off your shoulders.
