Kitty - Carfax - School English

Methodology

I am an Oxford University graduate in Experimental Psychology with three years tutoring experience. I received 43 points in the IB with 776 at higher level. I have excellent feedback from previous clients.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Ages 7-14y (maths, English, science) as well as:
Many different GCSE subjects
Maths Studies SL IB
Psychology SL/HL IB and A Level
Geography SL/HL IB and A Level
Oxbridge interview preparation and general university preparation, proof-reading and personal statement help

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I achieved 43 points in the IB dropping only 2 points overall in Italian and English. I studied Experimental Psychology (BA) at Oxford university and obtained a 2.1 (graduated 2017).

- How much do you charge?

Discounts for blocks of tutoring can be arranged on application. A reduced fee per head applies to groups however this can be discussed on application depending on the requirements of the client.

- Where do you teach?

I live in Oxford and have a car so can travel within reason around Oxford. I am also very happy to tutor online and have extensive experience doing so. I have a digital whiteboard which means tutoring online is really no different an experience to being in person and makes it much easier for both student and tutor however I am more than happy to tutor nearby students in person.

- When are you available?

I am available pretty much any time to suit the clients.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages from 7y to University level. I have experience with older students as well as younger students and am very adaptable to the needs of all students.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

All qualifications- IB, A-Level, GCSE, entrance examinations

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I work through skype- clients can contact me and once arranged I will give the student my contact details and we meet at the arranged time. I have a digital whiteboard so any diagrams can be seen by the student.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am a down to earth, recent graduate who understands that learning may not always appear to be the most enjoyable activity in the world. However I make a huge effort to really engage with students and engage them in their subjects to get them interested again. I am professional, engaging, friendly and motivated and always aim to have a great working relationship with both students and parents. I have a personal style of tutoring whereby I assess the needs of each student and adapt my lessons accordingly. I am completely different from old-fashioned, stuck in their ways teachers and find that students really appreciate the breath of fresh air that I can bring to their studying.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have three years tutoring experience in person as well as online with 100s of hours completed and excellent references.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

The University of Oxford and a prestigious secondary school in the UK offering the IB.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Yes

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I recently coached 4 students through their maths studies revision which they took earlier in June/May this year. They were all exceptionally happy with their teaching and are aiming high.

“Your sessions are really helping XXX as her confidence is still really low and you help give her a boost! I can see the improvement already.”

“Thank you so much for your help! In these times of pressure and stress, the revision course gave me fantastic motivation. And the exam techniques for essays that you included were super helpful! I actually organized a workshop last week with a few other psych students where we applied your essay tips, and it worked very well.”

Feedback passed on from the parents of a 12-year-old Ukrainian student

“Xxx has passed her English pre-test for Cheltenham and will now continue to the full papers in January. I spoke with Xxx's mum yesterday. She is really grateful to you that you work on motivating Xxx. She said it was obvious that Xxx perked up during each lesson with you. She says she has noticed an improvement in Xxx's English since working with you”
This student ultimately accepted a place at Queenswood School and I am still tutoring her in English.

“Hi Kitty, I'm delighted to tell you that Xxx has been offered a place at MCS! Xxx is really pleased - as are we. Thank you so much. He would not have made it without your help.”

Feedback from parents of 4 and 6-year old Italian children to whom I taught English.

“Thanks you so much for all your help. The babies really enjoyed being with you and I hope their English continue to improve.”

Feedback from the mother of a 15 year-old maths GCSE student I tutored.

Kitty has been excellent, she is very patient with Xxx and she prepares well for each lesson. She has tried very hard to increase Xxx's confidence which I know is not very easy. I only have praise for Kitty and would highly recommend her.
