Mini Bright Sparks sessions are planned and delivered by an experienced Primary School teacher with a First Class degree.
Nicola Hood


My name is Nicola and I have a First Class Honours degree in Psychology.  After a year out from studies, working with children in care, I then returned to university to do a PGCE (teaching course). I then became a primary school teacher.

I now have four children of my own.  I continued to work in a primary school right up until I had my fourth child.  Then, I decided that I would love to offer fun, active, play based phonic sessions to pre-schoolers and their parents.  So I set up Mini Bright Sparks for 3 and 4 year olds.

Due to parental demand, I then began offering more services as I was asked to tutor primary school children.  I now offer tuition in either small groups, pairs or one to one sessions.  I also offer parents support and advice.
