Show Notes

In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak with Sandra Pyne, the Co-Founder and Co-Owner of Jigsaw Phonics Tutoring from Fruit Salad Publishing Ltd.

Sandra started her career in educational publishing, she transitioned to teaching and discovered the challenges faced by struggling students. Exhausted by teaching, she moved into tutoring and despite some setbacks, she refused to let failure define her. She collaborated on literacy activity books that transformed into a phonics program, gaining recognition. 

However, when governmental restrictions made her business difficult, it was time to reimagine her approach. Armed with valuable insights, Sandra developed a business model to empower tutors and support their professional growth.

Now, Sandra helps educators worldwide through her innovative approach and phonics system. By leveraging her own past mistakes and understanding the needs of tutors, she has created the ‘Tutor Like a Pro’ membership programme. This membership equips tutors with all the resources and strategies required to deliver effective and impactful tutoring sessions.

Don't miss this episode to learn about Sandra's remarkable journey, her inspiring story and the profound impact she has in education.
