About Me

{I'M CURRENTLY TEACHING! NEW AND CURRENT TEACHING CODE FOR YOUR FIRST LESSON: 2018katrina (40% off your first lesson) }

Hello students! My name is Katrina and I am a native English speaker from the United States.

Most of my experience comes from online tutoring and teaching ESL to students through a nearby library. My students come from a variety of countries such as Brazil, Japan, China and South Korea. I have helped many students from other countries to learn English since 2015. Almost all of my students are non-native speakers. The number of lessons that I have taught are over 1,671!

TEACHING STYLE:
For students taking their first lesson with me, I recommend taking a "Free Trial" lesson with me so that we can make an English plan for future lessons. It's a good way for us to get to know each other and plan out an efficient strategy for your English learning needs. All lesson plans will be customized for each student. Please send a message if you have any questions or inquiries.

Here is what a lesson may look like:

WITH LESSON PLAN:
(5 min.) INTRODUCTIONS
(10 min,) GRAMMAR: "Superlatives and Comparatives"
(5 min.) SPEAKING VIA VIDEO RESPONSE: "New York Celebrates 2018"
(10 min.) READING COMPREHENSION: "Hong Kong Living Conditions"
(10 min.) FREE TALK BREAK
(5 min.) VOCABULARY: "Quantities and Containers"
(10 min.) POWERPOINT: "Main Ideas and Details"
(5 min.) LISTENING EXERCISES: "Physical Descriptions"

WITHOUT LESSON PLAN:
We can have a free talk session where I can correct any grammar or pronunciation mistakes.

FEEDBACK
After a lesson is completed, you will receive detailed feedback about the lesson's contents. You can expect vocabulary and explanations as well as additional material. I can also give homework. Feedback and homework will be issued within 24 hours of the lesson's completion.

LESSON PRICES
-My lessons are $12 an hour and if you buy in bulk, they become $10 an hour!
-You can receive a 10% coupon for each lesson when you leave written feedback!

TEACHING AVAILABILiTY
I encourage all types of English learners whether you are a beginner or not to take my lessons.

Here are some reviews from a few students:

This review is from a Canadian student:

This was just a 10 minute trial lesson. Katrina was very friendly and had some nice ideas for breaking the ice with my son on his very first Skype lesson.

多くの体験レッスンが自己紹介と要望を聞くだけで終わることが多いですが、Katrina先生は15分という短い時間で私の目標も聞いてくれましたし、動画なども用意してくれて内容を理解できたか確認のための質問も投げかけてくれました。生徒のレベルと目標に合わせてきちんと準備をしてくれる先生だという印象でした。

Many trial lessons finish just by listening to self-introductions and requests, but Professor Katrina listened to my goal in a short time of 15 minutes, and also prepared videos and other content He also asked me questions for confirmation. It was an impression that I am a teacher who prepares properly for the students' level and goals.

This is from a young Japanese student:
小6の子の初レッスンでした。ビデオを見て、知ってる単語を言うアクティビティが一番楽しかった!と言っていました。単語を知らずにあまり言えなかったにも関わらず、子供って不思議です。30分の中でいろいろなアクティビティが経験できて嬉しかったようで、早く2回目のレッスンを受けたいと言っています。

It was the first lesson of a child of Small 6. Actually the most interesting words to watch the video and know the word was the most fun! It was said. Despite not being able to say much without knowing the words, children are mysterious. It seems that I was happy to have experienced various activities within 30 minutes and I'd like to get a second lesson early.

○ Recommended for intermediate and above
○ Professional attitude ○ Good for solid study

Katrina always think about my expectations and provide me with some materials which are suitable for my requirements.

I hope to see you soon!
