From C (a parent) “5 courses with Kate over the past 2 year. It’s been a slight uphill journey with tutor assessed grading last year, but with Kate’s help she did fabulously. However, luckily this year has been far more straight forward. We have been so lucky with the such a range of fantastic subjects offered by Kate. DD has thoroughly enjoyed all her courses this year and has decided to continue Business and Sociology from last year, onto A Levels. I know this is only due to your enthusiasm in the subjects and excellent teaching. DD really felt this shone through in your happy, friendly personality that came through in your live lessons.
We’re so happy we found HomeMadeEducation and 2 fabulous teachers to study with other the past 2 years!”
From L (a parent) “I can personally highly recommend HomeMade Educations short courses, my daughter is neurodivergent also and she loves them, we Completed 3 short courses so far, have 1 on the go and 2 more ready and waiting and making the massive, massive leap of trying a live version in September which a ginormous jump for my daughter.  Visually the short courses are inspiring, you can stop like many prerecorded courses and chat and for my daughter staying on topic is a miracle but somehow these courses have be incredible, to the extent the Famous Building and Architects has been completed twice. They are visually pleasing too, the images and picture selection is fantastic. Also … Kate … has such am amazing clear voice which really important for my daughter. We have covers topics on Geography, History and science so far and are planning to extend that after the summer holidays.”
From T (a parent) “Dear Kate, I just wanted to let you know that of the three subjects that D studied with you/Caitlin, he achieved a 9 in Geography, an 8 in Business, and a 9 in English Literature!! Caitlin might be interested to know that he also got an 8 in English Language. Overall, he achieved the best grades at the test centre where he sat his iGCSEs 🙂  Huge thanks and credit to you and to Caitlin for your teaching and resources.  With thanks and appreciation, T (and D)”
From P (a parent) ” I can’t recall if I told you but I thought your study skills sessions were absolutely amazing. My undergrads would certainly benefit from them!”
From H (a parent) “Can 100% recommend Home Made Education. My son has done two IGCSE subjects this year and the quality of the teaching and the information provided is fantastic and also great value for money”
From N (a parent) “I thought you’d like to know that C got a 9 for his Psychology GCSE 😃 We are obviously delighted! Thank you for your course and all the help and advice you gave us towards the end. I so clearly remember my telephone conversation with you at the beginning of this journey in 2019 – your friendly encouragement was so appreciated”
From M (a student) “Dear Kate, I have just received my results… And I have achieved an A* with 91%!! I can’t thank you enough for all your help throughout the course. I could never have done it without you. This will hopefully set me up for development studies for uni.
From M (a student) “Thank you so much Kate for all your support with Environmental Management/ Travel and Tourism. I have just recieved my results 😁 Enviromental management A* and an A in Travel and Tourism😊
From R (a parent) “I think you must be a bit magic. Thankyou. Its quite an emotional thing for me to see J approaching learning with such gusto. I can’t tell you how much your classes are helping him learn how to learn. It’s not just that he finds you personally so engaging, which is rare in itself, but he is learning how to research and present his ideas. This is something he has never done before.” 
From A (a parent) “Hi Kate.  I just wanted to say thank you for your lessons, notes and videos! And the good luck messages!  She feels that the exams all went really well and came out happy from all of them and thinks that she is good at exams, just not so much at studying!  She enjoyed your course and has learned a lot about how to revise and study which will stand her in good stead for next year’s exams! Thanks a million, A “
From L (a parent) “I would like to say a huge thank you for the two brilliant short course’s – DS is/has enjoying/enjoyed them so much, they’ve inspired her to not wait an additional year to start the GCSE Psychology.  I hope it is not to late to sign up for the live sessions starting this September.”
From K (a parent) “After leaving school after being bullied we found you like a shining star and My daughter has LOVED every class and all 4 subjects that you have encouragingly taught her over the last 2 years. The education department could learn a lot from you. Thank you for your dedication and passion to teaching. ❤️
From D (a parent) “Oh my gosh, DD LOVED your class – like so many reviews you have provided the most enjoyable online lesson ever!”
From B (a student):  Thank you so much for teaching me Sociology, I feel it has been one of my most formative subjects and has changed my world view….I felt it was important to thank you because you are a wonderful teacher and have taught me many subjects throughout my life that have made me a better, and more engaged student.  I wanted to let you know that I have chosen to study Psychology at A-Level, because ever since about … the 2nd lesson in your class, I was enraptured by the way humans work; I am hoping to do Psychology or Sociology at degree level, but if it weren’t for you, I may never have discovered either.  Both subjects taught me to better understand people and be more empathetic, and Sociology has made me realise I want to devote my life to activism and social change – so once again thank you, because from the bottom of my amygdala, I love your teaching and I can’t express exactly how much it has formed who I am today, and who I may be in the future.  I hope you teach many other students this passion and fascination.
From S (a parent) You are an amazing tutor. I can’t thank you enough for everything, from the load of emails I sent you, the help I received, through every process and step. You are truly remarkable.
DD was upset on Wednesday saying I wish we could carry on, I don’t want the course to end, I want to hear more of Kate, she made the course so interesting, I never knew I would like Business so much. Thank you ever so much behalf of DD and myself
From C (a parent)  As a parent I’m so happy I found HME and know that you both run excellent courses and my young person 110% feels the same as me.

From H (a parent) Thank you so much for everything over the last 2 years.

You have done such a great job and I will definitely recommend you to others. THANK YOU!”

From C and M (parent and student):  M and I would like to say a huge thank you for the excellent Economics course you have provided. M has found the content and resources to be exceptional and the online lessons combined with homework and recaps has been very effective at helping him learn. He has developed a love of economics and his learning has steered his future in a new direction. What started out as his ‘extra’ subject has now become his most prominent and inspiring one.  I will let you know what happens with M but for now he would like to study Economics at A-level next term if all goes to plan. Once again, sincerest thanks for your fantastic educational provision and tuition.

From N (a student): I have enjoyed your lessons and look forward to doing the environmental management course with you later (I especially enjoyed the cartoons)

From M (a parent):  We are truly fortunate to have found Home Made Education. Would highly recommend to sign up with Home Made. For sure you will receive excellent individual support throughout. Thank you Kate

From S (a parent): We use Homemade Education for Psychology and I wouldn’t hesitate to do another course with them. Far more engaging for students and tutor support and feedback has been great 

From B (a student): Thank you so much for helping me and teaching me all through out this course; I really have loved learning it and I loved having you as a teacher.

From R (a parent): We have started the GCSE Psychology course (we are currently in Module 2) and are enjoying it immensely!  Thank you so much for putting it together in the way you have.  My son loves it!

From S (a parent): We use home made education for EdExcel Psychology and it’s been great! Highly recommend!

From H (a parent): Asking on behalf of a friend. Are you running the revision classes for gcse psychology like you did last year? My daughter attended them last year, and said she wouldn’t have got such a good grade in her exam if she hadn’t taken these classes.

From M (a parent):  I just wanted to say that I can’t recommend Kate highly enough! Her lessons are great. Dd16 says she owes her 2 A’s in Psychology and Sociology at GCSE and an A Level in Psychology. We’ve had issues with other teachers and tutors, but never Kate. When I asked her what was wrong with some of the others yesterday, my daughter’s reply about teachers was “They aren’t Kate. They don’t make it interesting and engaging like she did. I miss her!”. Dd12 is now studying psych with Kate and really loves it too.

From E (a student): I just got my economics exam results this morning, and I got an 8! Thank you!

From M (a parent):  Getting him to complete the course in a year with the level of content was a particular challenge for him but your structured approach and how to answer questions from the start really helped him focus in on what was required.  He’s gained english, maths and biology GCSE’s and IGCSE’s too, so we are super pleased for him, as it enables him a future pathway. Many thanks for your excellent course and tutoring.

From H (a parent): I can’t tell you how much she is enjoying your classes, we would very much like to put her name down for September to do Geography and Travel and Tourism

From I (a student):  Just writing to let you know that I got a 9 in sociology! Thank you for your wonderful teaching of the course. It was engaging and interesting throughout and I could not have got that mark without your skills and support.

From R (a parent): My 15 year old daughter chose to take 8 GCSEs in 9 months and there was no way I was going to be able to keep on top of what she needed to be studying. It was so helpful to know that Business and Travel and Tourism were taken care of through Home Made Education. She got her T & T result this morning – a Grade B! And that’s in less than half the usual time taken to study. Business Studies results coming next week. I honestly can’t praise HME enough. Thank you!

From J (a parent): The content was great – super engaging and interesting. kate, the tutor, was very present and helpful.

From S (a parent): Hi Kate.  I just wanted to let you know that DD is really enjoying T and T, her words were “its superb”. I have never heard those words before lol!

From J (a parent): My son has just finished gcse psychology, done in a year with home made education. it was great, highly recommended – lots of engagement and communication, content was very interesting: my son actually enjoyed this from an academic pov which is not his default by any means! thank you, Kate!

From T (a student): Thanks for everything, I have very much enjoyed this class and will be sad to stop learning about it till A levels!  Once again, thank you!

From B (a parent): Kate has been a great teacher and support to my daughter who sat her first GCSE psychology paper today. Due to Kate and the subject, she is seriously considering the subject at university.

From M (a parent): I just want to say thank you very very much Kate for all your support and great teaching over the last year. My son sat his business exam today being well prepared and feeling confident. He found it pretty easy and finished it 20 mins early … Thank you for making this happen Kate and we’re wishing you all the best. 

From B (a student): I would like to thank you so very much for teaching me throughout the terms. I’ve enjoyed taking your course

From T (a student): Once again thank you for everything, I have very much enjoyed this course!

From M (a parent): Thanks so much for the excellent course materials and your tuition. He … went to another college interview last week with a view to doing a Btec Level 3 Business Studies and felt he knew a lot more than most of the other kids there.

From S (a parent): Excellent support and materials. Really well priced for what you get too.

From R (a parent): I highly recommend Home Made Education. My daughter is doing quite a few exams this year and Kate’s videos and input have taken the pressure off me needing to be on top top form for every course.

From L (a parent): My son is thoroughly loving HomeMadeEducation Sociology and Economics. Good to hear you do A level too; may be next on list 🙂

From K (a parent): My girl studied Gcse psychology and loved it ( and got an ‘A’ at 14) – I am hoping she will want to go onto A level at some point as she still talks about everything she learned and clearly has an affinity for it!  I can’t recommend HME highly enough! Massive value for money and very approachable 🙂

From N (a parent): We’re doing the business and highly recommend it – the tutor definitely goes the extra mile for her students

From M (a parent): Totally recommend Kate, who helped my son to a B in Business Studies in only 4 short revision sessions – she was so focused and helpful

From B (a parent): My daughter is really enjoying the course.  She recently had a two hour revision lesson that was really useful.

From C (a parent): We love HomeMadeEducation. Excellent tutor, excellent course and excellent price. We did lots of research beforehand and HomeMadeEducation was definitely the best choice. Great price, great tutor, great courses.

From S (a parent): We are doing economics with Kate Sneep at Home Made Education. My daughter is loving the course and planning on doing it for Alevel.

From L (a parent):I agree; my son is studying economics with Kate. Brilliant.

From C (a parent): We just used her online revision session and it was excellent. Wish we’d followed her whole course!

From E (a parent): Highly recommend – the courses are excellent value and kate, the tutor, is brilliant. her feedback is very useful and ontime, she has a great sense of humour, and knows her stuff. my son has done several courses with them and we think the quality of materials is second to none!

From M (a parent): You made a big difference to D’s confidence and ultimately his grade

From A (a parent): Just a thank you for the super helpful revision session. I sat in for most of it and we talked through the way he would have approached the answers. So pleased we did this now as I can review his attempts at questions and guide in the way you are teaching as extra help for him.

From K (a parent): You are the best! Why didn’t I discover you earlier in my home ed journey!!

From D (a parent): I has been loving your classes again this year, thank you. We keep recommending you to everyone!

From I (a student): Today I got my results for my economics IGCSE exam…an A!  I want to thank you so much for teaching me … I could not have achieved this mark without your skilled teaching and excellent help!

From T (a parent): Let me say a huge thank you for marking all D’s business papers and giving such good feedback. He achieved an A which we were VERY happy with. Thank you!

From K (a parent) : Well, thank you very much, Kate! DD got an A*!

From D (a parent):  We highly recommend HomeMadeEducation. My 14 year old has been studying GCSE Economics this year, online, and is motivated, interested, and eager to take more courses with her next year too.

From K (a parent):  I can recommend homemadeducation, my daughter is using them and loving it! 

From M (a parent):  E  absolutely loves your class.  For a child who has found it almost impossible to write coherent tidy notes. Her files have been a revelation. Thank you for how you have been teaching the class. I never imagined she would enjoy Economics so much.

From C (a parent) “I can definitely recommend Kay – she teaches my daughter at HEET and she loves her classes as do lots of the other students”

From C (a parent): Kate from HomeMade Education is very good. She is teaching Psychology and Economics at our classes in Tadley and the students love her classes.
