Our Team

Discover & Be was founded in 2015 by Rhiannon Harman and Sheila Datoo, two experienced primary teachers. They now work with a team of expert academic and music education specialists, and you can find out about each member of the Discover & Be team by reading their profile below. We have a particular approach to how we believe children should be educated, and you can read more about this philosophy here.

As well as private academic and music tuition for primary-aged children across Sussex, we also have Key Stage 3 tutors whose expertise spans into Secondary school education.

If you'd like to join the Discover & Be team, whether as a private music or academic tutor, do get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
