Information about Catherine
I have been a primary teacher for nearly 20 years, teaching in Bristol, Wiltshire and Somerset. I left full time class teaching in 2015 so that I could concentrate on English and maths tutoring and music tuition, whilst continuing to do some supply work as a way of keeping in touch with schools. I have tutored many students of various ages over the past 5 years, helping to boost confidence in certain areas, as well as preparing for SATs, secondary entrance exams and GCSEs, with a high rate of success.
Last year I qualified as a Mindfulness teacher and am now offering these sessions to older students and adults.
I have two grown up step children and a a 9 year old son, so I can certainly relate to the variety of challenges faced by young people (and parents) as they find their way through school life!
Availability: I am available for tutoring work during daytime and evenings during the week.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I am a fully qualified primary school teacher with 20 years experience of classroom teaching in key stage 2 (7-11 years of age) and one to one tuition with children aged 6 - 16.Contact this Tutor
Feedback For Catherine (4)
Catherine is amazing and so patient with my 6 year Daughter. I would definitely recommend Catherine.
Catherine is extremely approachable and friendly. Her ability to quickly assess my daughter`s Maths needs and target those areas that my daughter was unsure of have proved invaluable and have given my daughter a new found confidence. Thank you, Catherine.
Our 9 year old son is very good and keen at maths,often finding himself bored during maths at school.so we used tutorhunt to look for a tutor just to keep him challenged and interested!we are so pleased we found Catherine - she comes on time,fully prepared with work that you can see shes thought about and is very enthusiastic!my son has really bonded with her and when she has left he has said `that was so cool`!Catherine also said she enjoys the challenge of keeping him interested in and enjoying maths!i wish I`d had a tutor like Catherine as a child!!!
We have been so very happy to have found Catherine. She has a wealth of teaching experience, is fully qualified and understands national curriculum expectations. That said, she is very able and willing to develop lessons based on what we would like to help our daughter achieve (building on confidence/helping embed ways of calculating sums) After having a detailed discussion regarding our expectations and what areas of support our daughter needed with her learning, we agreed an approach of developing both her english and maths skills. Catherine very quickly started the sessions with our daughter on a 1 to 1 basis with little need to coax our daughter to sit with her. She engaged her in the activities whilst allowing her some breathing space too when needed. She comes to the sessions prepared with activities suitable for our daughter, and is courteous, willing to discuss approaches, and quickly built a rapport with our daughter who enjoys meeting with her each week. We would highly recommend Catherine to others.
