About Katie

“I want to help parents understand the methods teachers use in the classroom from long multiplication to structuring a creative story!”

I’m Katie and I’m a mother of three. I’m married to Alex and we live in London.

Before I had my children, I was a teacher for seven years. I taught in both state and private schools. During my career I taught in one of London’s leading preparatory schools, which was deemed outstanding by Ofsted twice while I was there. I have also tutored privately for ten years, successfully preparing children for their SATs, 7+, 8+ and 11+ exams.

While teaching I realised I wanted to help parents understand how their children were being taught in the classroom, and to provide them with a service that would explain lesson terminology and methodology. I often heard things like, "James can’t do bridge division and I tried to explain it to him but he wouldn’t listen to me. He kept saying 'you’re teaching it the WRONG way, Mummy!'" I believe teaching should be totally transparent. What if helping your child with their homework could be simpler, less stressful? What if there was a bank of information that within a few seconds could tell you exactly what number bonds are or how to identify a complex sentence?

About Katie's Classroom

“An ideal solution would be for someone to show us how to do it and how to approach the problem if our child doesn’t get it.”

I want to help parents access the ways in which core subjects like English and Mathematics are taught in their child’s classroom. I’ve created a bank of short video tutorials that parents and children can tap into at home or on the go. Katie’s Classroom is a way of helping with homework, sharing in learning or supporting the extension or revision of knowledge of topics covered at school.

I want Katie’s Classroom to be as close to having a teacher in your own home as possible. My video tutorials are designed to help you support your child’s learning, be that helping them to grasp a new concept, become confident in their knowledge or extend their understanding and improve their focus on a subject. They are high quality, easy to understand, bite-sized videos delivered by a qualified teacher that can be used time and time again.
