This is how 2 referees rated Catherine:
Catherine offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I am a cheerful qualified teacher who specialises in improving primary
students literacy skills.(years 4,5 and 6 ) I prepare students for both English Sats and 11+ comprehension ,grammar and VR papers. I am familiar with the requirements of the National Curriculum and exam boards.
I prepare my lessons to suit my students needs. This could be exam preparation or filling in missing gaps in a students skills.
I work from my home. I hold a CRB check.
I have been employed in both state and private schools .I am able to work with students to build their confidence and ability to study. I plan my tutorials to suit an individuals needs.
Parents often ask me to help students to catch up when they are falling behind with their school work. Other children need more of a challenge because they are coasting at school.
I set homework based on my lessons ,normally from workbooks or creative writing. These consolidate the lesson and build the ability to work independently.
Students who have been unable to read or write at the level expected for their age improve with one to one tuition.
I can work on handwriting and presentation that is untidy so it looks better and is easier to read.
II will try to get to the root of any problems that need attention by listening carefully to both parents and children . I will then plan lessons and find the most suitable materials to use. All children learn in different ways and I will do my best to find the right approach for them.
I offer a free assessment and will answer any questions via First Tutors messages before you decide meet me .
My free slots at the moment are on a Monday , Tuesday and Wednesday .

We are already seeing improvements in her work and her confidence. All in all we wholeheartedly recommend Catherine as a fantastic tutor who makes working with her fun!
I’m glad you are happy with my approach to tutoring your daughter. Your comments will be helpful to other parents .
You have been a bit hit with Jay who looks forwards to coming to see you, building his book of work and receiving the encouragement he needs to continue to "prop up " his confidence at this time. You seem to "get him" and can put things in a way that he understands.
Thank you for your continued support and tutoring, take care
Jacqui and Peter Denton
