A versatile and fun-loving licensed Chemist, I graduated from Tokyo Institute of Technology with a Masters Degree in Materials Science. I have recently taken a career break to start a family here in the UK. My sons are now 4 years old and six months old and I am therefore able to work part-time. As I enjoy teaching so much, I have chosen to become a private tutor particularly in the subjects Maths and Sciences. I would also be glad to teach English and Filipino as well as basic Japanese languages.

Katrina is superb, the difference she has made to our daughter is huge. Katrina in patient and very easy to work with. Our 15 year old has really appreciated Katrina`s approach, having found the help at school was no longer adequate as she was moving onto more complicated maths. We are very happy with the tutoring our daughter is receiving.

Kat has been teaching Chemistry to my daughter in preparation for her GCSEs next year and I can say that results are very good, my daughter feels more confident and enjoys the subject much more than before. Kat is always on time and is very flexible to accommodate changes to the schedule.
Katrina has been tutoring my 2 children in Maths for 2 1/2 months now. My youngest is in Yr 4 and the eldest in Yr 9. They have vastly improved in terms of confidence and ability. Katrina is able to explain things in a much better way than their normal teachers or even I can do. She covers topics that they didn`t understand at school, as well as new topics, so that they will understand them quickly in school. It is a tribute to Katrina that she can cover the subject so well for both age groups! My children adore her and their time spent learning! She is always organized, plans ahead, and friendly and informative. Thank you Katrina!

Katrina has helped my daughter prepare for her GCSE exams at very short notice. My daughter responded well to Katrina and has achieved an A to A star in her mock exam. Katrina was very reliable and good value for money. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.
