‘Kate inspires young people of all abilities to adopt a deep understanding and love not only for their subject, but for themselves. She enabled many vulnerable students and those with additional needs to make progress beyond expectations. As a professional and colleague, Kate was held in high regard and demonstrated loyalty, reliability, compassion, along with an infectious sense of humour. More recently, on returning to work after having children, Kate has expanded her work providing workshops for working parents, teachers and students. Kate has supported many teachers with their own work, life, balance and has greatly improved their well-being, confidence and awareness of self care. She has so much to offer children and adults in a range of contexts and I highly recommend her without hesitation, knowing she will add huge value to the outcomes you aim to achieve.’
‘If you could bottle what Kate has and sell it, you would be a millionaire. Her enthusiasm, passion and sheer dedication to enabling young people to feel they can achieve anything, is remarkable. Kate’s planning and delivery is outstanding and without her, our training programme would not be the success that it is. Her wellbeing classes, along with her meditation for teens has encouraged our students to become mindful of their own well-being, enabled them to manage anxiety and communicate effectively when they’re not feeling good. We’ve witnessed a huge surge in their confidence and self -belief and are eternally grateful.’
‘Kate is a beautifully caring person. vbHer honesty and passion to help other teachers realise they are not alone when struggling with workload, family and the pressure of day to day life is so comforting. She is so easy to talk (and cry) to because she truly understands and wants to help. Kate’s support with engaging and motivating students has been instrumental in my success as a teacher and her well-being coaching helped me fall back in love with a career that I was so close to leaving.'
‘Mrs. Silcock turned my son around. She took him from a set 6 to a set 2 and gave him the confidence, time and belief that he could achieve what he wanted. He went on to achieve a grade 7 in English language and literature, after being predicted a grade 3 the previous year. She is an outstanding teacher and one I will forever be grateful to.’
Mrs Silcock is amazing. Both as a teacher and a private tutor, she helped me to understand English in a way that I hadn't been able to before her sessions. With her help I managed to leave school with an A* in English literature and an A in English language. I was a predicted a C/D. Mrs. Silcock taught me to not give up and to break through the predictions that my school had set always ensuring I believed in myself and my ability. I will forever be thankful for her help.
Flourish tutors helps me to understand English and maths in a way that my other tutors and teachers don't. Their sessions are always engaging and interesting and they provides lovely resources to help me understand and refer back to. Their lessons are always fun and they make me laugh which helps me to not feel anxious or stressed when we are studying a difficult topic. They are amazing!
