About the tutor
Lindsey Tucker is an experienced, well-qualified teacher who enjoys helping others develop and practise their functional skills of literacy and numeracy within a friendly environment.
Her main job is with students at Bicton College but Lindsey treasures her teaching of adults for Learn Devon at The Kennaway Centre, which dates back to the mid-eighties. Since then she has taught various courses in a wide range of subjects, reflecting her own diverse interests and qualifications. It is this love of learning that she hopes to convey to learners.
“Learning truly is a lifelong process and it is never too late to develop and/or expand an interest. Age and ‘ability’ need not prevent learning; only a closed mind can do that.”
