Mrs Katherine N

Welcome, my name is Katherine Neale. I am a fully qualified teacher as well as a certified specialist teacher who can assess and report on specific learning difficulties. I enjoy working with learners and seeing them achieve their goals. I appreciate that each student is unique, so I always strive to ensure my tutoring reflects their individual needs, aims and learning style. I endeavour to spark the student’s interest in a subject. I often find that the best way is to relate this to each student by highlighting its relevance outside of an academic context. Once that eagerness is there, confidence I believe is the key to a successful academic learning; I am generous with praise and do all I can to ensure my students feel empowered. I have taught a range of pupils from 5 to 18 years. I have considerable experience in a range of learning difficulties and disabilities, behavioural issues and pupils with English as an additional language. I also have worked with pupils with gaps as well as deepen their learning.

Ms Margaret L

Having been teaching in different capacities since 1980 I am an experienced tutor in English to GCSE level. My students develop confidence quickly. I have an honest no-nonsense approach in my methods which are modified to suit the very individual needs of each student. I have been an AQA examiner in the English language component at GCSE level for over ten years. During lockdown, the demand for online tuition accelerated and I have found it to be an excellent means of communication with my students. I enhance this with another online platform on which I can share resources with students and mark their completed assignments. I provide a review to parents after each individual lesson. This helps to monitor progress and provides an excellent means of enabling parent tutor communication. I hold a current enhanced DBS having been fully checked and authorised to teach children and adults of all ages.
