Kitty is a fantastic tutor with vast teaching experience in teaching of a variety of subjects. I thoroughly recommend her for the personalised and individually tailored teaching and mentoring approach to help others and myself achieve and perform at their highest potential.
In achieving the above, Kitty maintains up to date with changes in curricula, learning resources and exam formats. Without hesitation, I will recommend you to have Kitty as your tutor.

Best of luck. Raji Joganathan.

Interview with Kitty

QUESTION 01 | 08
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Kitty — I don’t teach languages as such, only language skills and English linguistics, but I love learning new languages, and I was very inspired by my French teacher at school. I also had a very good teacher of Dutch in Sheffield where I come from originally.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Kitty — The English language is probably encapsulated by the Queen, really, so I guess that is why it is referred to as ‘the Queen’s English’ when it is Received Pronunciation.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behaviour in the language that you particularly like?
Kitty — Live for the moment
QUESTION 04 | 08
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Kitty — It is a lingua franca in many countries around the world and it means I can communicate with a lot of different people worldwide.
QUESTION 05 | 08
What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Kitty — There are a lot of idioms in English that are difficult to understand, plus English grammar rules are a bit complex and not consistent. Pronunciation is hard as the language, it has so many different roots and so many borrowed words.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
Kitty — I used to teach on the pre sessionals at a university near where I live, which is in Plymouth, and the students there were very friendly. They were a bit homesick so one day we borrowed a lecture theatre and held a karaoke session in out ‘spoken language’ afternoon lessons, which was wonderful and it allowed people in the group to really bond.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
Kitty — I find being an English language expert helps to make new friends and acquaintance in many other countries.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in language?
Kitty — Being a native speaker and understanding how other languages impact on the use of the target language.
