My name is Amanda J Harrington, and I am a tutor and author.
I started Cumbria Tutor almost 14 years ago, travelling from house to house in my trusty little car, visiting my students in all weathers, negotiating snow in my lumpy boots, and floods on many an unlit bend. I have made friends with (alnost) all the dogs and (absolutely) all the cats; I have been fed cakes, biscuits, and consumed endless, welcome cups of tea and coffee.
This year, I moved all my tuition online and now tutor students from all around the world, the furthest, so far, being Hong Kong, and the closest ten minutes down the road! Somehow I still manage to meet the pets, though often by accident!
I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, and I published my first book in 2012. I home educated my own children and much of the educational work I created for them became the basis for the hundreds of activities, worksheets, projects, practice tests and exams I have used over the years in my books as well as my tuition.
As well as my many educational and creative writing books for all ages, I also write fiction and non-fiction for adults and children, including my popular set of books about life on the autistic spectrum.
