I have been working with catch up kids for about two years. I really enjoy working with these kids and it can be incredibly rewarding. I have learnt so much from this experience, especially patience, but most of all how to adapt the way I teach to the way kids think.

In my experience, if a child is struggling to understand a concept, it doesn’t mean that they are silly or dumb, it just means that I need to be more creative. There are many ways to teach something, and for me it is so rewarding when, after trying a few different things, I find a way that works and it changes the game for the child I’m working with.

I have seen children who struggle with reading find new confidence in themselves and their reading improves hugely, some who learn to skip count with a song and some whose maths marks have increased at school. Catch up kids has been a game changer and I highly recommend it!
