I was looking for a tutor initially specifically for the lockdown period, as I am working full time from home and unfortunately hasn’t got the luxury to do the home schooling for my 9year old son. I am very glad I found her. We started with Cathleen three lessons a week, and now we are on five lessons a week. My son really enjoys every single lesson he has, and Cathleen provides me with a weekly update on the progress and feedback on lessons. Cathleen is very patient tutor and engages very well with my son. Also Sundays afternoon is now tablet free afternoon, that’s when my son does writing exercise that Cathleen gives which I am very pleased.

My two children have been having sessions with Cathleen for the past five weeks, twice weekly.

Cathleen is excellent with both of them; having taken the time during the early lessons to create a connection with them. She clearly understands the psychology of children and learning.

Cathleen understands the curriculum inside out and is guiding both of my children through it well, stretching the one who needs it by pushing him into the next year’s material and ensuring my other child has adequate coverage across all of the curriculum. She is also flexible with her style, dealing with my daughter’s ADHD very well.

Cathleen uses technology to great use within the lessons, and I love the summaries that she sends me each week to share how the children have got on.

I couldn’t have asked for better help in getting me and the children through the nightmare of home school and full time work.

Cathleen has been a great tutor for my son, he has dyslexia and is shy and she is patient and really makes him feel relaxed and confident. They do a lot of work in the hour zoom and my son, who dislikes learning is enjoying the zoom sessions. I highly recommend Cathleen.

I was really sceptical of online teaching but I really needed it for my daughters. Cathleen is very understand and took her time to get to know my kids which allowed her to know what angle to teach my kids from. Really appreciate her work and mostly how she teaches my older daughter who has a EHCP.
