Information about Kate
Friendly, high-achieving Oxbridge tutor available.
I am an experienced, kind and attentive tutor with over ten years experience of tutoring privately in homes across London, the UK and internationally, alongside a career as a professional musician. I have worked in primary and secondary schools as an educational facilitator, delivering workshops with large groups, and mentoring young people one-to-one in mainstream and SEN school settings.
I graduated from Cambridge University in 2012 and then worked as an assistant to an educational psychologist, developing resources for effective learning with independent schools across the country. I worked for four months with a Steiner influenced charity in the Republic of Georgia where I ran music and ecology classes and taught English as a foreign language.
I have a masters in Music and spent two years working as programme manager for an education charity delivering environmental workshops and lessons in secondary schools.
I am currently a professional musician and teacher. I am passionate about fostering a love of learning in my students. I am sensitive, enthusiastic and experienced working with children and young people of all ages. As a tutor I believe it is my responsibility to tailor the style of learning to each individual and to bring my creativity and attention to detail into academic settings where all can thrive, but some just need a little bit of extra help! I encourage students to ask as many questions and discover as many answers for themselves as possible, fostering a long term interest and love of their subject, as well as ensuring that the tutee has understood topics fully. I am committed to developing your child`s commitment to and understanding of a subject in an environment which ensures they have plenty of fun along the way!
I develop a rigorous tuition programme with all my students and in conversation with parents, schools or other tutors who are involved. I am very confident creating my own programme of work in response to your needs, and am equally happy to adhere strictly to tasks set out by school teachers, educational psychologists or others.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch, and I would be happy to talk through what you need and how I can help.

Kate has been tutoring our son in English for 8 months. She is patient, attentive and has been adjusting her approach quickly and effectively to our childs needs. She has been encouraging him with a clever and kind approach. She has been instrumental in fostering self confidence and love for reading/writing and improving his performance at school.
She takes time to discuss needs, concerns and progress with parents. We are extremely happy with her tutoring and would recommend her in the strongest possible way!

Feedback For Kate (1)
We have been using Kate for approximately one month. She is teaching my 14 yr old daughter both singing and theory. My daughter has found a lot of the tips for improving technique both easy to follow and useful. Kate has a very friendly and professional demeanour. So far we are very pleased!
