In 2001 Rachel Vecht founded ‘Educating Matters’. She started out her career as a primary school teacher and also trained student teachers. Throughout Rachel’s teaching career in both the state and independent sector, she was inundated by parents seeking advice on how to support their children’s learning at home. Educating Matters evolved through her substantial experience teaching children, having 4 children and addressing parents’ concerns, questions and difficulties over the last 25+ years.
