« Catherine was the home school teacher for my two children during two winter ski seasons in the French Alps. She taught all core curriculum subjects for Y5 - 8. We found Catherine to be an intelligent, passionate and enthusiastic teacher and had great comfort knowing that the children were being stretched and inspired in their education. My son passed the 11+ and was offered his chosen school place; and my daughter dramatically improved her Maths - and even started to enjoy it! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Catherine for any tutoring/teaching role. »

Professional tutor with 10+ years experience. Focused on improving entrance exam performance through engaging and fun tutorials

Methodology

Personal Approach:

- I work on the basis that students' difficulties often arise from an insufficient understanding of simple concepts. I am skilled at simplifying complex abstractions. By investing time to revisit and master some of these easier areas, students can subsequently make rapid progress whilst gaining an appreciation and enjoyment of their studies.
- Professional Tutor - I presently work full time for a Celebrity family in London and previous to this, I delivered a remedial programme for a British Aristocratic family returning to the UK school system. My experience also includes two seasons as a comprehensive homeschool teacher in the French Alps for a family (Year 5/6 & 7/8) during spring term 2018/ 2019.
- I pride myself on being an engaging, organised and highly competent professional. I have a warm, sunny disposition and take a genuine interest in my students and their success.
- Growth mindset proponent, my passion lies in developing self-efficacy in young people. I inspire students to success by addressing limited beliefs and raising confidence in their abilities.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Catherine was the home school teacher for my two children during two winter ski seasons in the French Alps. She taught all core curriculum subjects for Y5 - 8.

We found Catherine to be an intelligent, passionate and enthusiastic teacher and had great comfort knowing that the children were being stretched and inspired in their education. My son passed the 11+ and was offered his chosen school place; and my daughter dramatically improved her Maths - and even started to enjoy it! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Catherine for any tutoring/teaching role.

Usman

Catherine demonstrated exceptional leadership and communication skills in guiding and inspiring seventy teenagers - and 7 staff members - successfully through a National Citizen Service programme. She excelled at delivering well structured, active and engaging sessions on a wide variety of topics e.g life skills, public speaking, psychology and citizenship. Within the staff team and when planning fun and enriching activities for the young people, she demonstrated strong teamwork and organisation. Catherine is a friendly and personable educator, clearly passionate and skilled in supporting young people to reach their potential.

Perfect! At first I was apprehensive about the idea of getting a online tutor to help me with my upcoming A level exams as I was concerned that I would not be comfortable and engaged during the sessions, especially over webcam. However Catherine’s unique style of being able to keep lessons/topics engaging and her chatty questioning creates a highly interactive lesson. She is clearly a pro when it comes to economics and finance and adds insights from first hand experience. And her friendly and patient learning style makes me feel comfortable in making mistakes and presenting my opinion. I would strongly recommend Catherine to anyone who wants help with their A level Economics.

Rhidian

Catherine is full of business knowledge. She has worked within business in the past, which is clearly evident in her approaches to business-related issues. I was able to witness this personally during my three-month volunteering placement in Ghana in 2017, during which Catherine was my appointed Team Leader. My role in Ghana was to provide a business consultancy service to a local company. Catherine made the success of the project possible with her excellent mentoring and easily-approachable manner. Catherine was also effective and efficient in teaching business- and economics-related concepts, which I continue to use during my Economics degree at the LSE.

HIND

Catherine was my program leader for a summer program which I mentored. She was very friendly and understanding with all our young people. She has excellent logistic skills and combines her critical thinking with good preplanning to meet all her young people’s needs. Catherine is patient, passionate and empathetic individual.

Catherine taught me many skills in working with young people
But her profound effect on the young people was truly astonishing. She inspired them very much and they really saw her as a friend and role model. Catherine had a good balance of authority and kindness. She would read situations well and showed such leadership where young people would not challenge her out of respect.

Catherine is a great teacher and leader.
