Information about Katherine

I specialise in 7+, 11+, 13+/Common entrance English, Mathematics

I belong to a Band A (Good Schools Guide) Education Consultancy/Agency and have worked in Richmond, Dulwich, Wimbledon, Southfields, Balham, Tooting Bec, Wandsworth Common, Putney and Parsons Green.
Schools I have prepped children for the following independent schools: Ibstock Senior, KCW, Alleyns, JAGS, Dulwich, Harrodian, Whitgift, Emanuel, Hampton Court, Kingston.
International schools: Lycee Francais Charles de Gaulle South Kensington, South Bank International.

I have provided one to one tuition for seven years, primarily in English and Maths. I have worked with students from reception up to 13+, assisting with literacy, comprehension technique and entrance exam/verbal reasoning practice through to common entrance, essay prep and creative writing. I have worked with students looking to gain entry to competitive independent schools as well as those who are finding their subject challenging. I help children to grow in confidence and believe in their abilities.

"I wanted to let you know how Amelia did in the end on her 11+ exams. We went for 5 schools and she got into 4 of them, including her first choice Ibstock Place Senior School. She worked very hard and she did very well. I give much of the credit for Amelia`s success to her tutor Katherine . Katherine is incredibly patient and perseverant. She tried several different techniques to explain things to Amelia and really persisted until she found a way to make sense of things. Katherine is a great combination of gentle but unrelenting. When 11+ exams were finished, my daughter declared that she wanted to continue with the tutoring, which I think is the ultimate form of praise! We could not have done this without Katherine and we will always be grateful that we had her on the team." 11+

"When we first started the process and looked into engaging a tutor, Alexander was lacking in confidence in English. Writing stories was a particular struggle and really what prompted us to approach a tutoring agency. He hated story writing with a vengeance! Efforts from both parents didn`t seem to help, until we met Katherine. It was slow going, but little by little his confidence grew, and even though it is still not his favourite subject, he will have a go without a huge amount of fuss. He enjoyed his time with Katherine, who is very personable and had no difficulties getting Alexander, who is quite shy at times, to open up. I would have no qualms in recommending her to parents who find themselves in a similar situation." 7+

"I thought you`d like to know that Freddie was successful in all his school tests and has had offers from Reeds, Kingston Grammar and Hampton. As you can imagine he is delighted. He will take up the offer at Hampton for 13+. Thank you to Katherine for giving him the skills and confidence to not only do well is his tests but also face them in a fairly calm and confident manner. He enjoyed his tutoring sessions which was also a bonus! Thank you again." 11 + January `17

My son has had three lessons so far with Katherine, and I feel confident that she will prepare him well for his 11+. She takes the job seriously and has a good grasp of the different expectations of each school to which my son will be applying. Furthermore, he likes and respects her so that he is open to being taught by her. She is patient, kind and gentle. I would not hesitate to recommend her to other parents.

Fantastic tutor. My daughter liked her from the start and so did we. It`s still early days to talk about the progress my daughter has made but I can certainly recommend Katherine from what I`ve seen so far.
