Hi there, and thanks for your interest! I'm Katy and I recently graduated from the University of Exeter with a BA Hons (First Class) in French, Italian and Spanish. I obtained Distinctions in all of the spoken elements of these languages, so I understand the challenges faced when learning languages.
I was particularly proud of my Spoken distinction element of my degree. In hindsight, this was all thanks to regular practice and the creative opportunities I sought during my year abroad which really enabled me to hone these skills! I want you to get the same positive results from your language learning, which is why I always seek to focus on and nurture the student’s oral, creative and improvisation skills.
I cater for all levels - from complete beginner, to advanced level - and beyond! If there’s a particular area or aspect of grammar or language you need help on, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me!
