 More about consultancy 

I have taught the following academic subjects at all levels, from primary children at the beginning of their academic journey, to young adults preparing for university. I offer a completely bespoke service, so whether you need to be taught an entire course, or need more specific help with a particular topic, then get in touch and I can prepare a course tailored to your needs.

  • History

  • Latin

  • Ancient Greek

  • Classical Civilisation

  • SAT Reading, Writing and Language

  • Verbal Reasoning 11+ and 13+

I also offer coaching in the following skills, whether the student is preparing for an examination or needs guidance with their general writing and presentation techniques.

  • Public Speaking/Speech Writing/Debating

  • Essay Technique

  • General Revision and Examination Technique​

All students who book tuition with Kate's Tutor Room can schedule a free 15-30 minute consultation before their first paid session.


Parents wishing to be involved with this initial consultation are more than welcome.


This helps me to find out the student's needs and expectations and assess their level, so that we can make the best use of lesson time.

Included after each lesson is a short written report sent by email to the student (and parents if they wish), keeping track of progress and outlining any homework tasks given.
