Information about Kathrine

I am a fully qualified English teacher of language and literature for KS3/4 students. I have taught in a variety Secondary schools in Huddersfield. My passion for teaching started, whilst I was at school and I thoroughly enjoy working with young people.

Currently, my focus is working as a private tutor, primarily, for KS3/4 students in the Kirklees area. In schools and privately, I have been honoured to work with some amazing people. To witness the progress, hear of the positive praise and great achievements that ones are making really encourages me to give more.

I have successfully supported students in achieving grade 6 and above via Skype and share resources through private platforms online.

I create all of my own resources to equip students with exam techniques for the new 9-1 GCSE in English Language and Literature exams. This bank includes checklists, examiner expectations, key terminology explanations, writing frames, hints and tips and close reading worksheets for literary texts. My resources are differentiated to support students sitting their exam with Edexcel and AQA (I do teach to other exam boards too).

My experience spans a range of set literary texts; I have critically taught:
Romeo and Juliet
A Christmas Carol
Jekyll and Hyde
The Sign of Four
Pride & Prejudice
An Inspector Calls
Blood Brothers
Lord of the Flies
Animal Farm
Pigeon English

Love & Relationships poetry AQA
Power and Conflict poetry AQA
Conflict poetry EDEXCEL

Feel free to contact me with regard to tuition or the resources. I hope to help in the best way that I can.

Please still make contact.

Katherine has been tutoring my daughter for the past couple of weeks. We have found her to be very helpful, organised and overall provide a very high standard of service. My daughter finds her resources very useful and has gained much confidence.

Tutors Response :

Thank for choosing me. It has been an absolute honour to work with Sana.

Kathrine is flexible and very reliable, she has very quickly formed a great rapport with my son via Skype tutorials ahead of his GCSE exams in a few weeks time. His feedback is that she has really helped him to understand how to tackle exam papers as well as the subject content. Thanks Kathrine so much.

Tutors Response :

There are some students who will always leave an impression - Will you are certainly one of those students. You were always determined to improve and self-motivated.
Thank you for enabling me to teach differently. Level 6: Language and 7: Literature. Brilliant results within a matter of weeks.
