About My Primary & Secondary Tutor – Building Confidence Together

Welcome to My Primary and Secondary Tutor, where we are on a mission to support primary and secondary pupils in Building Confidence Together in their learning. I'm Karen Simpson, and I'm here to share my journey with you. In 2004, I embarked on my teaching career after earning my honours degree from the University of Edinburgh. Over the years, I had the privilege of teaching in various schools in the Highlands, gaining valuable experience and insights.

Meet Karen Simpson - Director and Lead Tutor

In 2012, I took a career break after serving as an acting Deputy Head Teacher. It was during this time, while starting a family, that I discovered the transformative power of tutoring. I began working with local children, offering one-to-one and small group sessions from the summer house in my garden. The results were astounding. I witnessed children's confidence soar as they made crucial connections in their learning.

Through word of mouth, I quickly became busy and this is when My Primary & Secondary Tutor was born. Since 2017, it has grown each year, earning accolades along the way. Our journey is a testament to our commitment to providing quality education that fosters confidence in young learners.
