Mrs Kate W

I have a 25-year track record of guiding students to excellent A Level, GCSE and school entrance exam results. My intention is always to equip young people with the rigorous skills needed to attain strong grades, whilst nurturing their flair and imagination. As a full-time tutor I am available for weekday, daytime sessions and welcome students who are being home schooled or struggle in a school environment. Years of experience as a GCSE and A Level examiner have given me insight into why some students succeed above others. I recognise every child is different and every child thrives on personalised, flexible ways of learning. This is particularly vital when tutoring dyslexic students and those with concerns around processing and retaining information. I am convinced that my expertise and 'can do' teaching style gives all students the confidence to flourish. My forensic knowledge of entrance requirements for prestigious schools, means that your child will have the best possible chance.
