Information about Kate

I am a semi-retired teacher with over 40 years experience as a Head of Department with an excellent track record in enabling young people to maximize their potential. I know and love my subject and like to pass on this enthusiasm to my students as well as recognizing their own potential. I still work within the education system as an educational consultant and examiner.
During the past academic year,I tutored 13 students who all managed to improve their grades in their mock exams and essays etc. More importantly ,they gained in confidence and enjoyment of the subject area. It made me realise that it is important to begin tutoring as early as possible in the last two years of G.C.S.E or A level . Many students asked for help in the last few months or weeks. This is fine if the student is already working at the 6+ level but for those who are struggling,I would recommend beginning at the September or at least January of their final year so that we can secure or in some cases even begin some of the necessary basic skills.
I can provide references from previous employers or students on request.
