About the tutor

Ellie Crawford has taught in adult and further education since 1997, and has worked for Learn Devon since 2009.

Previously she has taught at the St Loye’s Foundation in Exeter and for Trade Union Education at the College of North East London. During her teaching career she has taught IT, Literacy, study skills and trade union courses, but now works as a Maths teacher which is her favourite subject to teach.

Ellie has worked with learners aged 6 months to 86 years, with a wide variety of backgrounds and abilities. She has taught in the community and in the workplace, and has even taught on a double-decker bus.

Ellie is passionate about ensuring that her classes are safe, happy places where learners can thrive. She has patience and good humour and wants you to enjoy your learning.

“If you don’t ‘get it’ straight away it’s not your fault. It’s my job to take the time to encourage you to learn in imaginative and engaging ways until you have your own ‘light-bulb moments’. The only ‘stupid’ question is the one you don’t ask: in my classes you can ask as many questions (as many times) as you like.”

Ellie has a Certificate in Education from the University of Plymouth.
