Testimonials

“Tamsyn is an absolute natural at working with young people. Her presentations were pitched just right for the programme, whilst her openness and energy made the subject matter both accessible and interesting to students. A joy to work with!”
Anna Konig, Social Science Co-ordinating Tutor, On Track to Bath

 

“Tamsyn agreed to come to discuss her role as a PhD student at an event for my Psychology students. In this, she presented her findings to date, as well as her experiences at the University of Bath and as a PhD student. Tamsyn was professional in her approach, and incredibly engaging with students – some of whom re-considered the university on the basis of her talk. Tamsyn also took time during this to advise students on resilience, caring for their own mental health and coping with exam stress. More than anything, Tamsyn genuinely cares. She has the best interests of every single member of staff or student, carer or caring organisation at heart in all that she does. Tamsyn inspires those she works with, and her motivation is contagious.”
Gwen Saunders, Psychology Teacher/ Head of Year 13, Salisbury 6th Form College
