About the lesson
*PLEASE NOTE I AM AT CAPACITY NOW UNTIL FEB 2022 WITH EXISTING STUDENTS*
I am very lucky that I have had a lot of wonderful students contact me through this website and have supported them in a number of ways since April 2020. Some have weekly support and some see me on an ad hoc basis for specific help with assignments, modules or essays.
I have supported social work students within my workplace as their practice assessors recently meaning I am up to date with university expectations, reflective practice and written work.
My teaching method is a collaborative one which enables the student to reflect upon and grow as a social work practitioner. I am nurturing and honest, I want the best for my students!
I break down pieces of work/ information into manageable chunks, offer guidance, share knowledge, ask questions to help develop reflective skills, linking theory to practice and a client centred way of practice.
I can offer bespoke tutoring in the following areas:
- specific subject areas for courses or degrees that a student may be struggling with.
-proof reading assignments, essays or dissertations.
-breaking down assignment or exam criteria. Supporting with what to cover, learning objectives and onward signposting to reading resources.
-preparing for practice placement
-legislation and policy lessons
- Developing reflective practice and critical analysis skills
I can also discuss specific needs and we can also create a plan together.
- Social Skills
I qualified as a social worker in 2012 with a First Class Honours degree. I have completed my ASYE programme, practice educator award and now in a senior position at a specialist child and adolescent mental health setting.
I have experience of working in a range of fields including child protection teams (front line practice and managing a team), court work, older adults and more recently in Child and adolescent mental health teams both in management and direct clinical practice.
I have completed commissioned pieces of work for the NSPCC including gangs, modern slavery, operation yewtree and also helped to set up a child protection helpline in Northern Ireland. I am an ABE trained social worker and have also completed PPEP (psychological perspectives in education and primary care) training to deliver this within my current role to a range of professionals to develop their knowledge in mental health and how to support children experiencing these difficulties.
I now teach professionals on a range of mental health subjects and specialisms as part of my current role. I offer therapy to patients and in a group setting. I have vast knowledge in attachment and developmental trauma. I am also qualified to deliver DBT informed skills, MBT (mentalisation based therapy), NET, VIG and CBT informed practice.
My experience within a mental health setting and the above therapies also give me the skills to support students who may be anxious, stressed or failing. I am available to offer support and coaching if required too.

Katy is a great tutor, I have had a number of lessons with her to help with my analysis skills and feeling more confident preparing for exams. I didn’t feel rushed. I was supported and it’s clear she is knowledgable as a social worker. Thanks so much!
I’ve had 4x tutor sessions with Katy. She has helped me to prepare for my final statutory placement and a law exam. I have found Katy to be helpful in developing my knowledge and my confidence with social work practice. Katy has also helped me link theory to practice, which I struggled with during previous placements!
I have known Katy most of my life. Katy is ambitious, and dedicated, with the strong desire to succeed In everything she does. Katy has a passion for teaching others, and will always work hard to ensure she can help to the fullest of her potential. Katy is a reliable, and trustworthy person, that can definitely be recommended.
Katy was my 3rd year final placement practice educator. She was helpful, approachable, friendly and helped me to develop into the social worker I am today. She is very organised, clear and was patient with me when i was learning

£30 PH is based on 1 hour of tutoring- this will not include additional time to proof read or additional reading in preparation. The 1hr can be used to discuss an assignment, case study, reflective piece, a specific subject or planning of work. Any updates or written work as a result of the 1st hour requiring proof reading or further guidance will require an additional hour booking. I will use 1 hour to proof read and review the reference list, cross referencing with the criteria for up to 2,500 words. Any additional 500 words will be charged at an additional £5 per 500 words to reflect the time taken to proof read.
