She is a wife and mother of two children, aged 10 and 7, and is co-Director of The Learning Collective Group Ltd.

Katie is currently working in local schools with young people in small group settings. She is 100% driven by people, whether it be spending time with family or friends or helping people who need support, practically, emotionally or academically.

Katie has taught in three large secondary schools over 20 years, securing outstanding results in KS3 tests, GCSEs and A-levels in both English and English Literature with young people across all abilities. Year on year, she achieved ‘positive residuals’ whereby the performance of her students always compared favourably to their performance in other subjects. Katie has also had extensive experience of teaching Year 2-6 students. Her teaching is lively and engages all children she works with.

Katie’s approach to teaching is simple. She thrives on making a difference and she is motivated by helping young people grow in confidence and achieve success. She plans for each individual’s academic needs by writing personalised programmes of study based around their hobbies and interests, wherever possible.

Katie engages students by making sessions challenging, lively and enjoyable. Her passion for English is passed to the young people she teaches. Katie takes the fear out of aspects of English students have struggled with and brings clarity to areas that can bring confusion. She is a perfectionist and loves what she does.

Katie firmly believes that to ensure young people reach their potential, each student must be taught as an individual. In order to do this, she plans lessons that cater for different learning styles. She is uncompromising in her belief that all young people can reach their full potential given a secure environment and detailed, personal written feedback.
