A serial graduate with a BEng (Hons) in Chemical Engineering from University of Leeds, MSc in Computing Science from Birkbeck College, London, an MBA from University of Warwick and a qualified Chartered Tax Adviser. Maryanne is an active parent to four children. All have achieved places at top UK schools. They are both the inspiration for and proof of the effectiveness of the Jink Series of books.


Maryanne started writing materials for her own children because she couldn’t find existing resources in Maths and English that engaged them. Very quickly their friends and friends’ parents were asking her to share the resources. Maryanne was more than happy to oblige, as she is passionate about helping learners and their parents. Maryanne has subsequently over the past 15 years used the methods encapsulated in the Jink Series to tutor scores of children, helping them also to attain entry into some of the UK’s top schools.


As the first wave of Jink Series’ students enters university, Maryanne has been persuaded to formally publish her famed workbooks.
