Feedback For Katherine (7)
I have been having lessons with Katherine for a while now and am beyond happy with the lessons she provides as well as the material. Every lesson she comes prepared with a planned lesson, powerpoint and notes to provide to help explain the content. She has been really understanding and helped me every step of the way from the first lesson.
I would highly recommend her as a tutor as she teaches in such a professional manner and enjoy it. She makes lessons enjoyable for me as well and makes sure that we make the most of the time she spends with me and makes sure I fully understand the content and the concepts behind the theories.
Katherine has been excellent, always on time and very helpful if we have needed to change the dates and times of the sessions. Her teaching has been excellent she has significantly improved my son`s grades and has improved his confidence and exam technique.
It didn`t work for us though she seemed high qualified.
Not enough work for the length of time and money
Tutors Response :
Dear Jeyanthy, thank you for the feedback. I am sorry you thought that the two sessions I had with Suruthi did not provide value for money. But sometimes I have to use my judgement as a teacher about the pace of my lessons at the risk of displeasing the parent; especially when I have to teach the concept of the mole to a year 10 student, as was the case with Suruthi.
Highly professional tutor with a wealth of knowledge and experience. My son has found her tutorial sessions so far to be extremely useful and interesting, particularly in terms of filling in the gaps that his school doesn`t have time to cover in class. Katherine has only taught him for a month, but his interest and confidence has increased already.
Very thorough introduction into credentials.
Timings didn`t work out for my daughter nor the length of session
GREAT TUTOR. WILL DEFINATELY RECOMMEND
Katherine is very punctual, pleasant and my daughter enjoys having her as a tutor.(A levels)
She has a wealth of experience and is very knowledgeable in her field.
Katherine Stiles became a Tutor for my son after a fairly disastrous iGCSE Chemistry Mock exam where he barely scraped a grade C. His confidence was very low, as were his school teachers expectations of this grade improving. He only started working with Katherine in mid-February so they did not have much time together before his iGCSE exams in May.
At the first lesson Katherine really took the time to speak to him and understand how much he understood and what he found difficult not just about the syllabus but also about how the subject was being taught. From this session Katherine organised a way of learning for him that immediately started to help the subject make sense to him. His confidence began to improve, his understanding definitely improved and he actually began to enjoy Chemistry a side effect we had not hoped for but was lovely to see. As the exams approached, he was completely confident in advance of his Chemistry exam. Katherine had told him from the beginning she believed he could get an A* (much to our hilarity after she has gone home that evening!). As ever, Katherine was correct. He achieved a high A* grade for his Chemistry iGCSE and it is probably the result he is most proud of, especially considering where he started from.
There is no way that he would have achieved this without Katherines help, guidance and moral support. She is a warm, caring and totally committed teacher who wants the best for all of her students and works incredibly hard to achieve the best results that they are capable of. I have no hesitation at all in recommending Katherine as a science tutor and our son has already had few A Level Biology sessions.
Very qualified and passionate.
Excellent, Builds rapport with student. Beyond helpful!
Katherine is a very supportive tutor! :) She has helped me prepare for my A2 exams with great confidence!
