About Me

17 Years Experience 

100% Success Rate

Bright Star Tutoring provides the very best tutoring to children of all ages whilst including parents in decision making. 90% of Katie’s work is through recommendation and she has achieved a 100% pass rate over the years because she believes her teaching is tailored so precisely to each and every child, maximising their strengths and identifying their weaknesses. Compatibility is so important, and Katie believes that her experience in recognising children’s weaknesses is not down to a child’s inability, but a lack of understanding in how to decode an examination paper. She identifies children’s struggles by observing them in a number of ways, however body language is a strong indicator as well as tone of voice. It is her understanding and belief that inputting joy, humour and encouragement will enable and support the detangling of a subject or area. She outlines various methods for child and parent to follow with a step-by-step criterion for all areas of subject. This lessens anxiety and enables a desire to learn. She provides consistent support for both parent and child throughout their time together, whilst always providing a safe space to talk through any difficult emotion. Her 17 years of experience have seen children gain entry into some of the most competitive and sought-after schools in the UK. Some of which include:

  • Winchester College
  • Eton College
  • Harrow School
  • St Paul’s Girls’ School
  • St Paul’s Boys School
  • Cheltenham Ladies
  • Dulwich College
  • Westminster School
  • City of London
  • Godolphin and Latimer

This is just a handful…

Katie provides the most experienced and engaging tuition; every year she helps children of all abilities and ages gain entry into some of the most competitive schools in London, Greater London and around the UK. She advises on all aspects of education and, whilst guiding parents as well as children, she ensures that the right school is selected for each child.

“I employed Bright Star Tutoring for one-to-one tuition in English for my nine-year-old son. I have used Katie throughout the years and her techniques are excellent. She has guided him and given him life skills for future exam papers. He has increased in percentage year after year, and I am thrilled! She seems to possess the correct balance of interpersonal skills to engage my son, whilst forming an impressive rapport with him. I would not hesitate to recommend her services.”
