Hello to students and parents,
My goal is to help students speak well with good grammar
and accent. Speaking with a student assists me in understanding their level of English
. Whether a complete beginner or further along, I develop a plan to fit the person, to increase abilities and to provide a good understanding of the English language
. I particularly assist with speech
patterns and proper accent while students are learning sentence structure and grammar. One of the most difficult things for a native English speaker is to understand the English of someone with a foreign dialect. Even though the person may be speaking English, they are not always understood because of a thick accent. I work with students to speak well. I also emphasize quality in learning, it's not necessarily about speed, but understanding what they are learning and being able to say things properly before moving on to new lessons. Yes, we can keep a pace to meet a goal, however, taking the time to learn something well with repetition is a key to retaining the material.
I like to keep the sessions upbeat, fun, and focus on the students area of most need while improving and progressing their understanding of English. My name is Katherine. I am originally from Denver, Colorado. I have a B.A. in Communications. I graduated with honors and proceeded to work in the television industry. I am a writer, director and video producer. I love other cultures, learning and teaching. My promise to you is to help your students learn well and speak well!
