Very professional, reliable and highly knowledgeable. Have recommended Catherine to a number of people!
She is well resourced, engaging and knows how to make sessions fun and interactive. My child struggled with tutors in the past but really enjoyed Catherine's lessons. Thank you so much for your continued hard work
Catherine has been tutoring Max for a number of years and we really couldn't recommend her highly enough. She's very flexible and always finds a way to fit around our busy schedule. Thank you
