This is one of her students in June 2020 Feedback:
"Kawthar is such an incredible teacher. She is very professional, and her explanation is very thorough. Her feedback on assignments really does help students know their strengths and their weaknesses. She also cares about her students on a personal level. I was her student during the period of IG cancellation exams, and she did not only help me achieve an A*, but she also supported and motivated me during these tough times. In short, you will guarantee the A* if she is your teacher." ~ Zahra Fouad.
