Kitty is a dedicated and professional tutor with a vast range of experience to call upon. She also has a deep understanding of a multitude of conditions which may affect young people. Would totally recommend her as a tutor.

Rachel

Kitty is not only a fantastic teacher, she's a lovely kind person. I had the pleasure of meeting Kitty when she taught my twin sons.

One of my boys needed a lot of extra support which Kitty patiently gave. This support allowed him to gain confidence and achieve academically, as well as socially.

I have no hesitation in recommending her.
