At Como our tutors are key to delivering our courses to a professional and high standard, whilst ensuring the student enjoys their course and has fun learning. As we expand our teaching programme into other regions of the UK, we introduce you to our tutors:
Gemma has been practising beauty therapies since 2009, working in a local hotel spa. In spring 2011 she started her own business as a mobile therapist in the Wiltshire area, and then opened her home-based salon in Highworth. Gemma went on to study holistic therapies such as reflexology, Hopi ear candles and hot stone massage. Gemma says “I am delighted to be a tutor at Como and to be teaching a different range of courses, either at their centre in Grove or at my home based salon in Wiltshire”.
Rachael first qualified in holistic therapies in 2007 and then took a break when life intervened. At the beginning of 2013 she returned to training and has gained diplomas in a wide range of holistic and beauty therapies. Rachael runs her own business at RAF Benson and East Challow and now looks forward to moving into teaching. “This past year has been one of achievement and has opened up so many doors of opportunity to me” said Rachael, “I am excited to be able to open these doors to students and to share my passion with others”. Rachael will be teaching at the Centre in Grove.
