I believe that students need to be excited by their learning. If there is something that they are not enjoying I believe that there is always a way to make learning exciting.
Learning and school should be fun, exciting and should meet the student's needs.
I have been teaching K-8 for two years full-time. I have taught in classrooms, in museums and have worked with students with varying learning disabilities. I would love to help you/your child close any learning gaps or to assist with homework.
Lessons that are cancelled less than 24 hours ahead of time are still charged the full amount.

I worked closely with Katie in two different primary schools and I am very confident that she could provide high quality teaching and a safe and positive learning environment anywhere she goes! Katie’s passion and enthusiasm for learning is contagious and she truly cares deeply for the safety, progression, and success of each and every one of her students.
I had the pleasure to work with Katie in a primary Setting based in London for a year. She has a six year degree and a range of practice gained from teaching in a range of schools.
Katie is an energetic, enthusiastic teacher who caters to all needs and interests. She goes above and beyond her duties to do the best for her students.
I would highly recommend her!
