MEET OUR GUEST
Julia Silver BA, QTS, NPQH is passionate about unlocking learning. Julia launched Qualified Tutor to enable tutors to improve outcomes for all our students. Julia is Senior Leader in a primary school in London, has been tutoring for fifteen years and has children ranging in age from 4 to 14.
Julia first appeared on the podcast on episode #170 to share The 4 P’s of Student Engagement.
Ludo Millar has been involved in tutoring for almost 10 years now, first working as a tutor for primary school children in his local area in 2014. Since then, after graduating from university, he’s helped develop Qualified Tutor into what it is today: a wide and welcoming tutoring community, training provider and quality mark for tutors all around the world. With a background in languages, Ludo spent a year working for a start-up in Paris in 2018, learning the ropes at a small but ambitious sports booking company – it is this entrepreneurial attitude that has helped him grow QT from its earliest days in September 2019. Now, as Love Tutoring Festival Director, he’s ready to raise the profile of tutoring to another level
