I first met Rebecca Kettle nearly 20 years ago when as Headteacher of an exceptional private independent school I needed to employ a Head of English. Rebecca stood out against other well qualified applicants. Not only did she have excellent subject knowledge but showed real passion for enhancing children’s love for learning and excitement. Over the years she demonstrated this repeatedly and not only in English, her ability and passion for other subjects was amazing and she could readily be asked to teach Maths, IT, Geography to name but a few. As my career extended to becoming an Executive Headteacher over several schools I could call on Rebecca to advise and recommend about various up to date teaching and learning materials and techniques. Apart from her professional knowledge she is warm caring person who really cares about the children she teaches of all abilities. She is patient, understanding and quickly appreciates the way a child learns and adapts her teaching to that individual. She has a good sense of humour which she readily uses to get the best out of her pupils without putting too much pressure on them to succeed. If you require additional support for your child, I would thoroughly recommend you talk to Rebecca, I’m sure you will not be disappointed.

Prompt response from the tutor after initial contact. Very clear upfront on ways of working leaving no room for surprises. Rebecca is friendly and professional. She consistently provides update on the lessons and progress being made. I am satisfied with her services.
We have had the benefit of Mrs Kettle's tutorage for our 10 year old daughter over the past 9 months and I would highly recommend her. In short, Mrs Kettle is always on time, professional and highly effective.
Rebecca has started helping our primary age daughter with maths. She is very organised and professional and we have quickly seen an improvement, both in terms of enjoying the subject and increased confidence. Our daughter really enjoys the sessions. I would definitely recommend Rebecca.
Rebecca is warm and friendly and my daughter looks forward to her tutoring every week. Rebecca has helped my daughter with her writing, spelling and comprehension and she is making amazing progress. Her confidence has grown and it is started to show at school. Rebecca recognises where she needs the most help and supports her with this. I’m so glad I found Rebecca.
Mrs. Kettle tutored my daughter for the eleven plus. My daughter passed the exam and I would say it was due to Mrs Kettle's strategic and efficient tutoring. She knew exactly how to prepare my daughter without putting too much pressure on her. She arranged extra mock tests and formulated a personalised learning plan. However, the best part was her warmth towards my child-my daughter still wants to be tutored by Mrs. Kettle despite the eleven plus being over! Thanks for instilling such love of learning in my daughter Mrs. Kettle
Rebecca helped my son with English comprehension preparing for 11+ exam. She is efficient, patient, well organized and a warm person. She also updates on the progress and weak areas after each lesson. My son enjoyed the lessons with her. I would definitely recommend her.
