Hello! I’m Kate.
I graduated from university with a diploma in language teaching in 2003. Since then I’ve worked at school and university to try myself and learn different techniques and approaches. So I have considerable experience of teaching English to different age groups. I enjoy improving and challenging myself. There are several Cambridge ESOL qualifications under my belt: CAE (Certificate in Advanced English), CELTA (an internationally recognized certificate that allows its holder to teach English all over the world), TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test) Modules 1-3 on terminology, teaching approaches and techniques, lesson planning, language skills development and classroom management, TKT Young Learners, TKT CLIL (teaching subjects through English)
Besides, I’ve been to English-speaking countries several times – in Ireland and England, which gave an excellent opportunity to practise my language skills and learn more about the culture of these unique countries. My stays also helped me realize the importance of effective communication in a foreign language. I am firmly convinced that we can express our ideas freely if we enjoy learning the language and love the language itself. I would be happy to share my knowledge and experience with anyone whose targets are Speaking and General Courses, Business English, IELTS, TOEFL, FCE and CAE.
