Brenda joined Action Tutoring in November 2020 as Programme Coordinator for Newcastle.

Brenda is responsible for overseeing a caseload of partner schools in Newcastle, liaising and working closely with the schools and pupils as well as managing our pool of volunteer tutors.


I really enjoy being able to message or chat with anyone in the organisation. I appreciate the way we work to try and make what we do inclusive and impactful. I enjoy setting up and running programmes, meeting and working with incredible school staff, pupils and tutors. I have to also mention my driven and inspiring co-workers!

I’m looking forward to increasing our impact by using data and case studies to ensure we’re working in the right schools and with pupils who need help the most.
