Catherine has really helped our daughter’s understanding of all 3 sciences over the past year that they’ve worked together. She makes the lessons fun and is very good at explaining tricky concepts. It’s been very helpful that she’s actually teaching the subjects on a day to day basis at a school so really knows what topics are important. She also gives some helpful exercises for our daughter to work on after the lesson is done. We would very much recommend Catherine to anyone who needs help with their sciences.
