About Kate

I am a retired attorney and small business owner. Two years ago, I completed a TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages) certification course at Columbia University. Since August 2014, I have been tutoring students from all over the world, assisting many with their business English. I enjoy working with a diverse range of students with a range of English language abilities and needs. I have discovered a love of teaching and particularly teaching the English language!

I have 20 years experience in the practice of law where effective communication and writing skills are key. I also ran my own business (handbag design) for the past 10 years where, again, effective communication and writing are key. I love language and enjoy conveying that love of language and its proper usage to others.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English speaker, highly educated (I have both a bachelor's and JD degree) and I recently completed Columbia University's 8-week TESOL certification program. I believe that language is best learned in an interactive, communicative and student-centered environment and tailor my tutoring accordingly.
