(1 student review)

As an academic, musician, teacher and mother of two adult children, I have enjoyed supporting students to achieve their full potential for over 25 years. With a friendly and personal approach, I encourage students to fulfil their potential by introducing effective study techniques and developing unique study plans.

I hold a Masters degree via research thesis from the University of Queensland, a Bachelor of Music (performance and teaching) - Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University and was awarded an AMusA on the cello. I hold a current Blue card and maintain strict levels of professionalism following government guidelines in relation to working with children.

Tutoring sessions involve one-on-one teaching and support with clear guidelines and attention to detail. I am available to teach from 4.30pm on weekdays and throughout school holidays at a rate of $65/hour.

"Thanks to Kathryn’s tutoring over the years, my children have been handed the love of English and writing. From an early age of basic spelling and grammar to assistance with tertiary assessments, Kathryn has been there and shown immense patience, professionalism and competence. I never had a problem getting them in the car to go and see Kathryn and I can’t recommend her enough. Highly sought after and well worth it. Thanks Kathryn."
