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!

Sincerely,
Katherine

English

My career in television production has included script writing, press release writing, interpersonal communications and many areas requiring strong English skills. I am a patient teacher and adapt my teaching to your speed. I also like to make sure that you understand each lesson, before moving forward. It is better to learn well and at your own pace. I have taught television classes to students and I know that each person has their own rate at which they learn. I can help you speak better, as well as improve reading and writing skills.

Public Speaking

Oh boy, need to speak in front a crowd? Once you get through the usual terror of presenting yourself in front others, it can actually be fun and informative. Let me help you do that!

As a Communications Major in college, public speaking and speech writing are highly emphasized and required as part of the curriculum. My career in television has included public speaking, writing, stand-up news journalism and public events and hosting videos. Also, I hold a professional actors conservatory degree. I have acted in numerous plays and Shakespeare performances. I can help you with tension and technique for being an effective public speaker.
