Kerry is a warm, encouraging and engaging tutor who enjoys helping pupils make progress and discover a passion for learning.
Kerry has taught English to pupils of various ages and abilities at two outstanding academies, mentored young people at a creative writing centre and facilitated workshops at a theatre youth group. She is also experienced in supporting teenagers with a variety of speech and language needs. In addition, she has been trained in preparation for 11+ school entrance exams.
Kerry studied A-Levels in English Literature (A), French (A) and German (A). Her first degree was in English and German Literature at the University of Warwick, where she achieved a first class honours on the Warwick Writing Programme. She has an RSA Cambridge English Language Teaching Award from International House Barcelona. She was also awarded a scholarship from the Arts and Humanities Research Board Award to study an MSc in Electronic Publishing at City University.
Kerry loves world cinema, dance and art. She has worked on several theatre productions (both adult and youth) and has written numerous short film scripts. She is currently working on a feature film project.
Kerry is tutoring my daughter at the moment and preparing her very well for upcoming year 7 entrance assessments. Kerry is a thoughtful and caring tutor and always looks at the best and fun ways to learn. Kerry’s thirst for her pupils to learn is infectious; my daughter thoroughly enjoys her tutoring with Kerry. I would not hesitate to recommend her to children of all ages.
Kerry has been teaching my daughter for one year and she is helping her with creative writing for the Duke of Edinburgh bronze medal. We hope to continue for this year leading up to the GCSEs. Her biggest asset as far as I am concerned is her enthusiasm and creativeness which has captured my daughter’s imagination for the subject. Kerry has improved my daughter’s confidence and enjoyment in the subject.
Kerry gave me a ton of support throughout year 10, helping with both language and literature aspects of the syllabus, ultimately helping me secure a predicted A* for GCSE. She was always enthusiastic and encouraging, especially when I made mistakes and helped me learn to improve my own work with techniques and skills I would not have otherwise known.
We wanted a tutor to help our daughter with her secondary school entrance exams particularly with English and think we struck gold with Kerry.
Our daughter is very much all about who’s teaching her and the bond they have. The sessions with Kerry always seemed to have a fun element (lots of giggling from the office) and in addition to teaching skills and exam technique, I think Kerry really helped with our daughter’s confidence when approaching these tests.
Kerry was very flexible when it came to scheduling sessions, fitting around our family plans. The “homework” she set always had a point building on the tutorial or leading into the next session and was very considerate of our daughter’s other school work.
We would thoroughly recommend Kerry.
Kerry helped me with my English A-Level, she was patient and methodical in organising my revision and with helping me with my essay technique. She’s a wonderful tutor.
