About Katharine

Cambridge Graduate Looking for Tutees

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from Cambridge University with an MSci and BA in Natural Sciences. I am currently living in Florence teaching English and Music, whilst learning Italian. I have found tutoring very satisfying in the past, especially when I see my pupils understanding something clearly for the first time. I am looking, initially, to teach online until I return to work in London in September 2019.
Tutoring Experience:
This year I have been predominantly teaching English to children under the age of 10 who are not native speakers. Before that I was based in Cambridge and taught around 20 students across Maths, Sciences and Music, ranging from Key Stage 1 up to A Level/IB. I got on particularly well with girls and young women who needed a confidence boost in their mathematical skills.
Tutoring Approach:
I try to listen to my pupils as much as possible to begin with so I can gage what they enjoy and what they are struggling with the most. I then try to balance these things so that no one gets frustrated and there is always an element of satisfaction in a lesson. I think it is important to be working on the edge of each pupil's comfort zone so that they progress, but never feel overwhelmed by the tasks at hand. This helps gradual learning and progression. I treat each pupil as my equal, to give a sense that we are team getting through their work together. However, each person is different, and if I sense that a pupil needs to have a more separate teacher-student relationship I can accommodate for this too - I just prefer the more friendly approach.
