Meet the Team
TTA is led by a democratically elected board of directors from the membership and supported by a small operational team. Together, we get things done!
Chris Wordsworth, who serves as the TTA’s treasurer, has taught in some of London’s top prep schools as well as working within the tutoring industry for over a decade. Having graduated with honours in Primary Education from St Mary’s University, Chris possesses a deep understanding of all aspects of education.

With a passion for education and a commitment to helping students reach their fullest potential, Chris has dedicated his career to improving the way tutoring is delivered. His extensive knowledge of the tutoring industry, coupled with his ethos of always putting the student first, has enabled Headway Tutors to expand rapidly since its inception. Under Chris’s leadership, the company has quickly become a trusted resource for students seeking personalised learning experiences and academic success.
Membership Team Lead
DBS Team Lead
Deborah founded The Reading Doctor in 2012, having previously served as Primary School Teacher in Greater London. Her dedication to ensuring reading success for all learners led her to become an Intervention Lead and then to train with The Institute of Education in London as a Reading Recovery Teacher. With this additional expertise, Deborah recognised the importance of reading as the key to becoming a successful learner. In 2012, she decided to fully commit to teaching reading, and thus, The Reading Doctor was born.
Deborah’s passion, drive, and successful projects have brought about many industry awards including Woman Franchisor of the Year, National Tutoring Awards and Kent Women in Business. As a Director of TTA, Deborah represents the views, challenges and opportunities that being a self- employed tutor brings as she was herself one for 6 years before franchising.
