I am a qualified UK Corporate Lawyer (Solicitor) having trained and worked at one of London's largest law firms. Before qualifying as a Lawyer, I was a business professional in several large organisations, including two multinationals. I specialise in teaching Business Studies and English as a Second or Foreign Language (ESL & EFL). I have over 10 years' individual and classroom teaching experience having worked as a College Lecturer and Private Tutor in several different cities including London and Cambridge in the UK and here in Montreal, Canada. Apart from up-to-date academic expertise in my specialist subjects, I am able to offer my students relevant first hand business and corporate law experience. As the founder and owner of Mont-Royal Business Training (an English language training company) I am one of the few private tutors actively involved in managing and running my own business.

I have many years' experience teaching adult students from around the world. I work with university students, business executives, lawyers, doctors, dentists, nurses, etc. from the USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Having worked at several prestigous international organisations and law firms, I have a great deal of political and social awareness about other cultures. I have also studied other languages, including German and French, which allows me to empathise with my language students. Currently, I am studying to improve my French here in the beautiful province of Quebec, Canada !
Katy is very professional and an experienced tutor. I got band 7 on my IELTS after only 2 months of private lessons with Katy.
Law Student, Italy
There was lack of time to have good preparation for the IELTS exam. However, with the help of Katy for about 2 months, I've reached my aim and got 7 average band.
I had big problems with listening. Katy helped me with listening every time we had lessons. Last month I did the IELTS exam again, I received 7 on my listening. I am happy because I can start my university course this September.
I had a very good success on my IELTS. I had 3 months lessons with Katy, I improved everything. My writing was quite weak, Katy helped me with lots of writing essays. I got IELTS band 7 in writing and speaking. I need this for my university in London.
Thank you, Katy !
I am an A-Level Business Studies student in Cambridge. I failed one of the modules last year, but with Katy's help I was able to resit and pass the test with a much higher grade at 68%. Katy has a great deal of business experience from her previous profession which always made her lessons more interesting than many of my college sessions where I am taught by lecturers who have no real business experience.
