MEET THE TUTOR: Mary Reed

I have been teaching ICT for some years! I obtained my computing qualification in Cardiff University and teaching certificate in Caerleon. I have kept up to date by obtaining my digital literacy teaching qualification. I have attended many courses led by Cannon UK and completed an Open University course on the topic of understanding genealogy.

I teach beginners computing up to level 3 “A” level standard; introducing learners to the digital world using their own devices including digital cameras. My new venture last year was the world of family history and genealogy. This year I am developing courses based around cloud storage and applications.

I enjoy imparting knowledge and sharing student success in their achievements.
