Judi Sheedy

Founding Educator - The Rural Tutor

Masters Education (Primary)

Bachelor of Business (Marketing)

A passionate educator, Judi Sheedy has over 10 years’ experience in classroom teaching, adult education and tutoring.  She has always had an interest in differentiating in the classroom, especially helping those students who need additional support.


When family and friends’ children, particularly in rural NSW, were struggling to find robust, evidence-based support for their children, Judi began to thoroughly research the best approaches to support learning differences – deciding on IMSLE (Australian Dyslexic Association) and iCRAVE methodology (Maths Australia)… and The Rural Tutor was hatched.


“The relief experienced by students using these approaches, as they rediscover that they are smart, and that they can learn, is immensely rewarding.  The nurturing, safe learning environment which The Rural Tutor has created enhances the student’s learning ability and confidence.”


Located in north-west NSW, Judi is passionate in providing exceptional learning support, normally only accessible in metropolitan areas.  She has established two tutoring centres in Gunnedah and Armidale where she lives with her husband and three teenage children.  


Judi is continuing her love of lifelong learning with her studies in a Masters of Special and Inclusive Education, dyslexia and dyscalculia.
