Welcome and thank you for viewing my profile. I was born in South Africa and my mother tongue is English, I currently live in South Africa. I adore travelling, great food and fantastic music. I love teaching English and I am extremely interested in languages, communication and different cultures.
I have a TEFL qualification from the International English School in Somerset West.
I have 5 years teaching experience both one on one and in classes (and for the last year on line!). I teach both children and adults, from beginners to advanced. Besides teaching English as a foreign language, I teach singing and theatre.
I also have experience in LEARNING a foreign language, so I understand the needs and challenges of foreign language students.
My teaching approach is friendly and patient, and I aim at keeping lessons positive and constructive. I really enjoy the challenge of offering my students a great opportunity to practise their conversation skills, I will always point out where you can improve, though, without disturbing your flow.
I build on your strengths and identify weaknesses and correct them using first controlled exercises, then more free exercises. Because of my musical background pronunciation and conversation are emphasized, however, understanding, reading and grammar are all covered in my lessons.
I aim to keep lessons relevant to your environment and lifestyle, fun and always a bit, or very (up to you!) challenging. Contact me for a free trial lesson!
Very good conversation !
I had a trial with Kathy and I really like her style I will definitely get some lessons with her.
Kath keep a diversified flow of conversation.
She is a very responsible tutor although we encountered a internet problem during lessons.
