About the tutor

Your tutor will be Carla Jenkins. Carla started working for Learn Devon in July 2019. Before joining us she was a secondary school English teacher and preceding that she taught English as a foreign language in London and Madrid. She is passionate about creative writing and that’s why she is currently studying for a master’s degree in the subject and working on her first novel. Yoga is another passion of hers and she attends classes as much as she can! Carla also loves walking in the beautiful Devon countryside, spending time with family and friends, cooking and bird watching. She loves teaching because she believe education is a great leveller, and that one should never stop learning. She believes brain is like any other muscle – you have to exercise it to keep it strong!
