About/Reviews

ABOUT THE TUTOR:  My B.A.(Honours) is in Social Behaviour (Psychology and Sociology) and my MBA (Master of Business Administration) focused on Marketing (and was completed jointly in Canada and Finland).

For 15 years, I held progressively senior roles (in the US, Canada and UK) in multi-national Fortune 500 organisations such as Kraft, Mars, Reuters, and Hutchison 3G.  I was a Director by the age of 35.    I then focused my skills on specialised roles in tourism and green energy, winning a variety of industry awards. This experience then transferred into 6 years of lecturing at College and University level to both undergraduate and graduate students.

While continuing to teach post secondary courses online, I have also been home educating my two sons in the UK for over 6 years.  I have been tutoring HE children, throughout that time.  In addition, I am an Education Embassador for the Museum of Brands, MERL, and West Berkshire Museum.

With my custom-designed courses, learners thrive with resources that offer both fun and creative elements, as well as a depth of detail and knowledge.   I use text, multimedia, practical examples, art & design to bring a subject to life!  I am particularly proud of the fact that I have many repeat students, who complete several courses with me year after year!

TESTIMONIALS:

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
