Kitty is a fantastic tutor with vast teaching experience in teaching of a variety of subjects. I thoroughly recommend her for the personalised and individually tailored teaching and mentoring approach to help others and myself achieve and perform at their highest potential.
In achieving the above, Kitty maintains up to date with changes in curricula, learning resources and exam formats. Without hesitation, I will recommend you to have Kitty as your tutor.

Best of luck. Raji Joganathan.

Interview with Kitty

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Kitty — I’ve been interested in both music and linguistics since I was a teenager and went into private tutoring/coaching when I had decided to become self-employed after 28 years’ experience as a teacher, head teacher and senior lecturer in Language and Literacy.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Kitty — I teach a range of subjects as much of what I do concerns language skills and communication, including presenting and performing. I enjoy teaching academic writing skills but equally, I have a lot of music students and I enjoy teaching singing and violin as music has always been a passion of mine.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Kitty — I have a few really, but I was inspired by my French teacher, my violin teacher Rob White and my linguistics professor Graham Nixon.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Kitty — A lot of patience, good interpersonal skills, listening skills, time management, interest and knowledge of the subject being taught, and the ability to work with a range of learning styles and personalities.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Kitty — My earliest experience of learning music was when I was given a recorder to play in a nativity. I was meant to play a low note as I was being a cow in the stable, but I blew too hard and it just came out as a squeak. I’ve enjoyed making people laugh ever since!
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Kitty — I am constantly learning about linguistics and I read a lot about sociolinguistics and accent/dialects. It constantly perplexes me that people make so many judgments about other people based on the way they talk.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Kitty — Yes, playing the violin, especially in my Gypsy Jazz trio, but I also love kayaking and running in Park Run
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof?
Kitty — I guess that is the ability to enable students to reach their full potential, regardless of their barriers to learning or their goals.
