During my free time I am a selling artist who has appeared on BBC quizzes, and runs an annual Puzzlehunt in London!
I am a professional tutor who graduated from Cambridge with a 1st class BA degree and an MPhil in Education and Literature - I have been tutoring ever since.
I tailor my tutoring to best fit my student's needs and learning style. With extensive experience ranging from primary to undergraduate students, I am confident tutoring for students of different ability and interest levels.
As a published academic writer with experience of private school and Oxbridge admissions processes, I am further confident tutoring to an extremely high level of tuition for a number of top-level schools and universities. Past students have gone on to study at Harrow, Eton, a number of London private schools and of course Oxford and Cambridge, among other universities.
My successes with students are not only due to my own expertise, however, but to my passion for inspiring a love of English in my students as well! During our time together my students not only come to feel more confident in the subject, but also to enjoy it!
Caroline S. - 'My daughter is getting on very well with Kate and is really enjoying the sessions. Her confidence in English is growing in leaps and bounds, as is her joy of the subject. Thank you, Kate.' Nurin R. - 'Kate is very well-organised, adaptable and has a really good knowledge of many texts that allows me to have a greater understanding of the context of my play. She has helped me to think and analyse more critically of the language features used in a text, which has allowed me to have a better understanding my author's intentions or effect created within the text. Overall, she's one of the best tutors that I've ever had.' Susan P. - Well prepared and professional. Encouraged my son to stretch his analytical skills. Great start, thank you Kate!
Excellent lesson- Kate is very understanding encouraging in her approach.
very interesting and very helpful!
my daughter really enjoyed the class, thank you!
My video session with Kate was really helpful and insightful!! She provided clear guidance and useful resources for my TOK presentation, explaining how best to tighten my argument.
Kate is extremely thorough and helpful. She gives very insightful feedback. Extremely grateful for her guidance.
Brilliant. Kate is the first tutor I would pick as she makes everything very interesting and simple to understand
