Kate English teacher

I am a qualified, experienced and dedicated teacher of English as a foreign language. English is my mother tongue: I grew up in a household with high standards regarding the correct use of the language and speak with a modern ‘Received Pronunciation’ accent (also known as ‘BBC English’), ideal for teaching as it is free of regional inflection. I benefitted from a classical education in London at a leading private school. I continued my studies in Italy and France and speak fluent French and conversational Italian, giving me an insight into the challenges of acquiring an additional language. CELTA Qualified, Native-Speaking Teacher of English, Translator & Professional Editor/Copywriter Since gaining my TEFL certificate in 1992 I have taught both general and business English to individuals with diverse backgrounds and levels. My career has also encompassed marketing and public relations with a particular emphasis on writing creative and compelling text. As well as teaching, I run a consultancy service helping non-native speakers of English to create English language versions of their websites, social media pages, business plans and academic documents. I very much enjoy using modern technology as a medium for meeting new people and sharing my expertise and knowledge of English language and culture with others.

Students feedbacks :

  • Mission accomplie

    J'ai passé plusieurs mois de cours avec Kate. C'est une personne très intéressante et ayant choisi des cours basés sur la discussion et la compréhension nous avons pu échanger sur de nombreux thèmes tout en voyant quelques points de grammaire et conjugaison. J'ai vu mon niveau de compréhension augmenter et mon vocabulaire s'enrichir.

    Très bonne progression depuis le début de la formation. Kate est à l'écoute et trouve toujours des sujets intéressants permettant de progresser. J'ai réellement beaucoup appris, ou réappris certaine choses. Professeur très sympa et toujours arrangeant. Thanks Kate...

  • Excellent!!

    Excellent cours où nous avons analysé une vidéo pour travailler ma compréhension, puis nous en avons profité pour faire quelques rappels sur des points de vocabulaire sur des mots importants tels que these et those, here et there, ou encore this et that
