Welcome to my profile!
I am a native speaker of English (Standard British accent) and a dedicated, enthusiastic, highly experienced college lecturer and teacher.
My current and former students describe me as professional, friendly, approachable, and above all, student-centred.
I firmly believe that one-to-one English language training, whether face-to-face or online, often results in greatly accelerated learning.
All of my sessions are tailor-made so that the course contents and materials are designed for your individual requirements.
As private sessions are much more flexible than courses at a language school or college, my sessions can be arranged to fit your specific academic and work commitments.
* 12 + years of English as a Second Language (ESOL/ESL) teaching, education consulting and proofreading experience
* Teaching experience gained at the leading English language schools in Cambridge (UK) and Vancouver (Canada)
* CELTA - the leading English Language teaching certificate recognised internationally
* DTLLS - the UK's leading adult and further education teaching diploma
* BSc (Econ) - London School of Economics & Political Science
* MA - School of Oriental & African Studies, University of London
* UK Solicitor (non-practising) - specialist skills in teaching Business and Legal English
* English Exams: Intermediate to Advanced levels of IELTS, ILEC, CPE, CAE, FCE and all other Cambridge exams
* English Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking skills at all levels
* Highly experienced proofreader: essays, dissertations, legal documents, CVs, resumes, university and job applications, etc.
I have a recent and up to date DBS certificate to teach children and adults.
I provide a 30 minute initial consultation on the telephone or Skype for FREE.
I also provide discounts for block bookings, as indicated in my 5 hour and 10 hour package rates.
I am happy to teach you at your home or school, but I can only travel up to 20 minutes from my home in south Bristol. Any other mutually convenient location in Bristol, including at cafes or public libraries, would also be considered.
I also offer one to one online tuition on Skype or Zoom. I highly recommend online sessions if you are unable to travel or live outside Bristol. I have helped many students online, including those based in other cities and countries.
Online learning is particularly effective for English essay writing, grammar and vocabulary, as well as for error correction and proofreading.
Perfect! Katy is a wonderful and caring person and a great teacher. She is very affectionated and sees things also from the students perspective. Her teaching skills are remarkable, very structured and good prepared.
Even after just five private lessons we felt so much more prepared and secure for our upcoming IELTS exam. She gives you a real valuation of your skills and tries to help you with your weak points. She did proof reading for our essays and answerd us a lot of questions even after hours. If we could give her 6 or more points we would definitely do this! She is awesome!!! Thank you Katy for everything! Jenny and Michael!
you excatly what you need and
Jennifer and Michael are a lovely married couple from Germany. They are both very hard-working and motivated students. I have been helping them with their upcoming IELTS exams, in particular the writing and speaking elements. I would like to encourage them to maintain their motivation as the English language will help them with their future careers in whatever part of the world they choose to live. Best of luck with your exams, I know you'll both do well : )
Katy is a very professional, reliable and conscientious English teacher and proofreader. She has helped me re-write various documents, including resumes and job applications, to an incredibly high standard. She is an accurate and thorough proofreader who can instantly spot and amend incorrect English grammar, vocabulary and tone. I have recommended her to my friends and family on many occasions.
Katy is a talented, fun and passionate English tutor.
Extra: she's been a language learner herself, so will understand the struggles you might have come across with previous tutors, and will make your experience with her a great adventure!
