To get a tutor of Kathryn’s calibre, for a price that we could afford, was such a relief
— James, parent from Guildford

“her expertise and patience”

“After just one course with LearnSmart, my son’s confidence was up to the point where the morning of his maths exam, he said he was excited. I can attribute his subsequent top grade to Kathryn, her expertise and patience, thank you!”

— Daniel, parent from Woking

“received a place at Cambridge”

“Ever since Kathryn helped my son with his personal statement, there was only one person I would trust with interview preparation. We found out last week that he has received a place at Cambridge to study Maths and I couldn’t be happier!”

— Michelle, parent from Dorking


"I'm not worried any more"

"We seem to be contacting Kathryn on a daily basis but she is always quick to respond. To have the support and advice 24/7 means that I'm not worried any more"

- Christine, parent from Hindhead

"I don't know what we'd do without you!"

"We looked and looked for a local tutor who could help with GCSEs and A Levels. Kathryn was the only person we found with enough experience at this level and now I don't know what we'd do without you!"

- Helen, parent from Wimbledon

Kathryn truly has a teaching gift. I know where we started this year and it wasn’t good. My daughter is now in a dramatically different place at school and in her ambitions for the future. I can’t recommend LearnSmart Academy enough to any parent.
— Sara, parent from London

“most importantly, an inspirational tutor”

"You are a saint! From a mother’s perspective, you are always smiling, on time, flexible and most importantly, an inspirational tutor. Not only have you helped my children achieve A and A* grades in their sciences and maths but you kept it fun and interesting at all times."

— Lilly, parent from London

“I previously thought were unattainable”

"You always explained complex topics in a simplistic way so it was easy to understand. The sessions were never boring and it was great to have someone enthusiastic that believed I could achieve grades that I previously thought were unattainable in my GCSEs."

— Alice, student from London


"My daughter, like us, adores you"

"It was so lovely of you to help us. We sincerely appreciate it. My daughter, like us, adores you and you are a wonderful clever lady that brings out a world of confidence in her. Thank you!"

- Lynsey, parent of a vulnerable student receiving free support

"We're both so pleased we found you"

"Thank you so much. We're both so pleased we found you so you could support our son. His happiness and learning have both accelerated so much; we hope you are able to work with him for many years to come!"

- Beata, parent from Richmond

We’re very proud of our daughter’s recent GCSE results. Before Kathryn’s tutoring she was predicted Grade C’s and D’s but actually achieved A’s in both Maths and Science. A combination of her hard work and dedication which was fully supported and enhanced by Kathryn’s wonderful teaching and personal skills explaining complex facts and formulas clearly.
— Debbie, parent from West Byfleet

“brought up my confidence and willpower so much”

"Thank you so much for helping me revise in the holidays. It brought up my confidence and willpower so much and it has made a huge difference to how I perceive it all so thank you."

— Alienor, student from Belgium

“truly changed her view on school”

"My daughter used to have difficulty concentrating in class. All your work with her has truly changed her view on school and yesterday at parent's evening they informed us she was going to be in set 1 for Maths next year. Absolute miracle worker!"

— Abigail, parent from Oxford


"More importantly you have really empowered her"

"Thank you so much for your inspirational session with Charlotte. She read to me what you had done together and it's very impressive. More importantly you have really empowered her, thank you."

- Lise, parent from Guildford

"I got firsts in both of my university exams!"

"I just got my results back and I got firsts in both of my university exams! Given I achieved thirds in both at the end of last year, your help has dramatically changed my understanding of the topics, thank you!"

- Vlad, Engineering student at Bristol University

Great time keeping but also flexible when situations arose. Kathryn always shows a happy demeanour and put our daughter at complete ease to ask questions or for explanations. We could not recommend Kathryn highly enough! Thank you Kathryn
— Dave, parent from West Byfleet
