About Mrs. Kathy

My main goal as an ESL TOEFL & IELTS English teacher & examiner for over 18 years has never changed in all these years. It has been to provide the skills and tools necessary for success as well as to foster the individual talents of each student. This gives them confidence to embrace their dreams and make them a reality.

Since I've taught both domestically & abroad in Iran my students are mainly from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Japan. Their scores have been from 90-120 on the TOEFL & 8/10 band on IELTS. They have been doctors, lawyers, engineers, professors, dentist & managers. Who have successfully gone on to fulfill their dreams & goals.

The talent to build meaningful relationships with my students and the determination to "go the extra mile" are two of my strengths as a teacher. Through the development of a relationship that is honest, open and respectable students come to know that I understand them and accept them as they are.

I can guarantee that if each student follows my instructions and studies hard they will achieve a high score either on the TOEFL or IELTS. This can usually be done in 4 or 6 weeks depending on the student.

GOD has given me an amazing gift and talent as a ESL TOEFL & IELTS English educator & examiner to encourage and train students to be highly successful by achieving their dreams.
