Meet the Team: Anna

What is your role at Tutor The Nation? Growth and Fundraising Executive ✨

What does your role entail?

My role involves lots of different things that go towards growing TTN. I manage our finances, fundraising, partnerships with corporates and other organisations. I also work closely with the team on communications and overall strategy. 

Tell us about an inspirational teacher who taught you.

My history teacher at secondary school Dr Murray was brilliant, she instilled a sense of confidence in me and made me feel like I could study history in the future. I really valued her perspective which helped me to understand how politics shaped perceptions of different historical events.

How did you get into the Charity and Education sector?

I have always been interested in education and I got involved with volunteering as a tutor during the pandemic. I’ve been lucky enough to have had access to one of the most privileged educational institutions at university which has made me keenly aware of the inequality that exists in our educational system. When I finished university I knew I wanted to work in something that would go some way to reducing that inequality and TTN seemed like a great fit. 

What’s your most memorable moment with Tutor The Nation so far?

There are so many to choose from! I think it would have to be our team social and strategy day and meeting Ros’ dog Wanda. 

What do you do in your spare time?

I like to swim (especially wild swimming), to go to the theatre, and bake. 

Name 5 people you would have at a dinner party (alive or dead)

Phoebe Waller Bridge, Louie Spence, Sindhu Vee, Delia Smith, Florence Pugh.

Where is your dream holiday location?

Niue – an Island nation off the coast of New Zealand – I think I came across it many years ago on Pinterest and since then I’ve always wanted to go. 

What was your favourite subject at school?
