Sumantha McMahon

English Tutor, Founder of The Upgrade Project

     

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Subtitle” _builder_version=”4.7.4″ text_font=”Montserrat||||||||” text_text_color=”rgba(68,66,53,0.8)” text_font_size=”17px” text_line_height=”1.9em” background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” max_width=”800px” module_alignment=”center” custom_margin=”|||” custom_padding=”|||” animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”bottom” animation_delay=”50ms” animation_intensity_slide=”10%”]

Having taught in both state and grammar schools, I left school teaching in 2017. As a passionate teacher, side-stepping into tutoring was a natural decision.

The Upgrade Project was formed because, although results are important, I always felt that in schools, there was not enough focus on progress and confidence-building.

I want students to upgrade their confidence, as well as, their results.

I’ll be welcoming new students from Feb/Mar 2021 onwards. 

In the meantime, I’m onboarding experienced tutors and qualified teachers to join my team.

I want to give families the best possible tutoring experience which means:

  1. Selecting subject-specialists
  2. Finding specialists for various needs e.g. motivation
  3. Selecting experienced SEN professionals
