Kay is a highly experienced tutor with an English degree from the University of Cambridge and. She has tutored for the 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+, with successes at schools including Dulwich College, Eltham College, Sevenoaks, Alleyn’s, Colfe’s, King’s, Highgate, Francis Holland and Winchester.
Kay takes an interactive and low pressure approach to tutoring, allowing students to develop on their interests, ask lots of questions, and reflect honestly and openly on what they enjoy and find more challenging. She takes time to understand how each student like to work and what methods of learning benefit them most. Students work at their own pace, and are encouraged to celebrate their achievements.
Kay also worked for three years at a tennis academy, teaching English from Year 3 to Year 13. During this time, she worked with a number of dyslexic students. By focusing on what these students are good at, and encouraging them to look further into what interests them personally, Kay found that they gained confidence and enthusiasm in their learning, often achieving significantly above their predicted level.
