Kitty is the most kind, caring, suppprrive, understanding, encouraging, and inspiring teacher. Our daughter absolutely flourished in her last year of primary school when she was taught by Kitty, she grew in confidence and greatly improved in all areas. We would absolutely reccomend her as a tutor she has a wonderful way with every child and their families, she brings out the best in everyone!
Kitty is such a lovely person, very kind, patient and helpful. I feel any child who gets the privilege to be taught by her is in the best hands ever
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.
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.
Highly experienced and talented tutor who is passionate about helping students succeed.
