About Mastermind

At Masterminds, we provide high-quality literacy and numeracy sessions for children aged 4- 11, in a fun, nurturing environment. Our programme focuses upon each child’s individual needs as we believe each child is unique and develops at their own pace. 

Our ethos involves starting where the child is at. We tailor our programme according to the areas that each child may require support and challenge within. Our aim is to support every child to master their own goals!

Hello, my name is Saima. I have previously worked as a Nursery Practitioner, Wraparound Team Leader and an Early officer for the last 7 years before carrying out teacher training at Edinburgh University. My passion for education can be seen through my qualifications as I have obtained my BA in Childhood Practice, First-Class Open Honours Degree and my Postgraduate Primary Diploma in Education.


"I think Masterminds is a great tutoring programme and it really helps me. I think Masterminds has great resources and it teaches me new strategies to develop my learning."

“Mahira was so excited to come home and start her English homework. I’ve never seen her so excited to do homework before! I’m so pleased with the huge improvement in her handwriting and even Mahira’s dad has noticed how much her handwriting has improved in such a short space of time.”
