Sam joined Action Tutoring in November 2020 as a Programme Coordinator for Nottingham.
Sam recently graduated from the University of Nottingham with a Governance and Political Development MA, during which she spent six months abroad in Denmark. In academia, her work focused on the gender gap, inequality and the affect this has on political attitudes.
Throughout university she was involved in schools outreach projects, where Sam developed a passion for helping pupils from all backgrounds. The programmes helped provide opportunities to build transferable life skills and pupils’ confidence, teamwork and leadership abilities.
Sam is a firm believer that all children should have the chance to grow and develop, no matter their socio-economic background, and achieve in life. Having volunteered in schools across Nottingham, Sam is excited to join Action Tutoring, to help broaden the opportunities afforded to disadvantaged pupils and make a meaningful difference in their lives.
Outside of work, Sam loves keeping active and is a keen walker, hockey player and helps coach the academy at her local club.
