Detailed Profile in English

About me

Hello!

My name is Catherine and I have been teaching English for 7 years. I have taught English in many wonderful places around the world - Peru, Argentina, Russia, Switzerland and now France.

I am a British native, born in the north of England and am now living and working in Paris.

I am passionate about languages, both learning and teaching, and come from a whole family of language teachers and professors, so I suppose it's in my blood!

Qualifications & Experience

I am a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second or Other Language) qualified teacher with over 7 years teaching experience to all age ranges and ability levels. I have taught in groups, one on one, in schools and privately.

I also have a background in child development and love teaching children.

As a language learner (I have learnt Russian and Spanish and am now learning French), I feel that I better understand the needs of a student and how making lessons fun, interesting and tailored to the correct level, encourages learning, feeds motivation and therefore SUCCESS.

Teaching Approach

The most important part of language learning is communication. I encourage my students to talk as much as possible, without the fear of making mistakes. The key to success is regular speaking practice with a native speaker.

My approach is personalised to each student. I listen to what the student wants to achieve and plan around their objectives.

I am patient, easy-going, friendly and eager for my students to succeed.

So let's LAUGH, LEARN, SPEAK and SUCCEED.

Catherine is an incredible teacher. I took a trial lesson with her and it went very well. She asked me some questions and never interrupted me while i was answering. At the end of my lesson she gave me some tips how I could improve my speaking skills
