Julia Silver

Julia Silver BA, QTS, NPQH

Founder and CEO

Passionate about improving things for students by training the adults who work with them, Julia founded Qualified Tutor in 2019 to raise standards in tutoring.

Julia advocates for an approach to education that makes more sense, focusses on the process rather than the outcome and takes an holistic view of teaching and learning.

Adrian Conway BEd, QTS, MA, NPQH

Head of Educational Programming

I love anything to do with education! Following my teaching career, tutoring was a not so obvious choice, but one that needed to be improved and recognised and so, working with Julia, we committed to raising standards in tutoring and give it the recognition that it deserved.

Following on from my own experiences of learning as a child I have made it my raison d’etre to give everyone the opportunity to develop and improve their own education. This is something that still drives me now!

Amanda Cremona

Amanda Cremona MAEd (SEN)

Tutor Coach

With extensive practical experience and a Masters in SEN Education, Amanda is passionate about finding ways to enable her students to be confident, self motivated learners. Amanda specialises in tutoring students with specific needs. She finds it really rewarding to share her skill set with other educators to enable them to perhaps think ‘outside the box’ with their teaching strategies when working with special need students.

With a belief that there is always something new to learn, Amanda hopes to inspire educators to keep open minded, to keep learning, and to share their own knowledge within the field.

Ayala Malka

Ayala Malka


Ayala has experience in the education sector, albeit in a slightly different way. Ayala worked as a PE/dance teacher and managed a busy school office for over 7 years. Another hat she wears is that of a graphic designer and she has developed QT’s image and resources from the very beginning. Although admin and designing are her forte, she’d much rather be playing netball….
