"Kate has not only helped me to understand the hardest topics in IB Biology HL and how to memorise the knowledge but she has also made me appreciate the subject. Thanks to her, I discovered a passion for biology that I previously was not aware of. We often say that students learn better and get better grades when they like the teacher. Kate is the proof that this is true. Unfortunately, this year we have not been able to prove out abilities during the end of year exams but I am sure that I would have performed really well thanks to Kate’s tutoring"IB Biology Student
"Natasha helped our son on weekly online sessions with Biology, Physics and Chemistry GCSE syllabus. Having come from overseas he felt he needed some support and consolidation in these subjects and Natasha was able to do that with her amazing knowledge across the three sciences. She is kind and positive, and established a great rapport with our son, really helping him and boosting his confidence which in turn, enabled him to gain A* in all three subjects at GCSE. We love Natasha!"Mother of GCSE Science student
