Hi, I'm Cathy. I'm a native, CELTA-qualified teacher with over 3 years experience. I can help you with general, conversation and business English. Learn real English, make quick progress and have fun with my effective, engaging lessons!
• Who am I?
Hi! I'm Cathy, a native English speaker from Manchester, UK. When I'm not teaching, you can find me reading a good book, baking cakes or running.
• What experience do I have?
I've taught English for over 3 years now, to hundreds of students from lots of different countries! I've taught in the UK, Germany, Sweden and most recently in Vietnam. I have teaching experience both online and in the classroom, in schools and University language centres. I teach a range of classes: general, conversation, business, and functional. Whatever you want to focus on I have the experience, knowledge and skills to help you.
• What qualifications do I have?
I have a CELTA which is a certificate issued from Cambridge Assessment. I also have TEFL qualification and a Bachelor's Degree in German with TESOL - Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. Teaching English is something I've always been passionate about and I continually try to get more qualifications and improve my skills.
• Why should you choose me?
You want a teacher who takes a genuine interest in you and your goals, and that's me! I enjoy seeing my students achieve their ambitions and have fun in the process. I'm also a language learner myself, so I know the process and how rewarding it is, but also how stressful and confusing it is at times. We can work together to avoid these difficulties.
• What are my lessons like?
My lessons are interactive, fun and designed just for you. I use a variety of materials, for example quizzes, videos and photos. I focus on all areas of language from the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking, to pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. There's always time in lessons to review your learning and track your progress, and I'm happy to give you recommendations for websites, apps or books to use outside of lessons to help you keep improving.
