About me

I'm Katie, I'm from London and I love to teach! I'm keen to help GCSE and A Level students because I've done these exams myself and know what you have to do to get the best marks! I'm currently studying Spanish and French and the University of Exeter.

About my sessions

For subjects like English or History I feel its important to firstly have a grasp of the material, to understand it, memorise it. Once that is complete it's important to practise essays, prepare for exam questions. For languages I would explain the key concepts, make sure students had a good understanding of the tenses (super important!) and then build on vocab, sentences structures, etc. I will ask students what they have doubts about, for example a certain tense.

For subjects like English or History I feel its important to firstly have a grasp of the material, to understand it, memorise it. Once that is complete it's important to practise essays, prepare for exam questions. For languages I would explain the key concepts, make sure students had a good understanding of the tenses (super important!) and then build on vocab, sentences structures, etc. I will ask students what they have doubts about, for example a certain tense. I will give an explanation of the tense, give some examples and then move on to an implementation of the tense and practise exercises. I feel it's important to explain concepts and then check to see if the student has understood and then put it into practise!

I will ask the students what their goals are, I'll focus my lessons on their weaknesses and explaining and practising what they don't know so they'll be able to overcome these doubts and achieve what they want, be it a particular grade or just learning how to do something! I will check progress by doing a short re-cap at the beginning of each session. I will be encouraging and friendly and remind them of their end goal to encourage the whole learning process.
