About the lesson

My lessons are for high school students, university students, professionals, or anyone who wants to improve their general or academic English. If you want to improve, for example, your conversation skills, I can design a bespoke course based on your needs. Or, if you have essays to write for school or university and are struggling with, for example, how to structure these or what vocabulary to use, I can help. It may be that you are a professional, working in English, and you have to give a lot of oral presentations or write many reports. Come and have a lesson! I'll give you lots of excellent tips that will help you to speak and write and interact with colleagues with confidence and clarity. Or, if you don't know what you need to improve, my in depth needs analysis will help you to find out for sure, so don't worry! My focus is on giving you strategies that will empower you to perform to the best of your abilities, whatever your environment or stage in life.

Lessons are online and for one hour. If you would like a longer lesson, this can also be arranged. There is a discount for booking a block of lessons.

About Kathryn

I have been an English teacher for sixteen years. I started in Spain, then moved to South Korea and since returning to Edinburgh in Scotland in 2013, I have been teaching at the University of Edinburgh. As such, I have helped many students from a wide range of academic and educational backgrounds and first languages. This is one of the great pleasures of my work!

When we first meet, I will conduct a full needs analysis for our lessons and we will plan them together, making sure that they are what you want. I am also highly flexible and adaptable, so can change direction or switch methodology whenever needed. These lessons are about you and your learning, and I am fully dedicated to that.
