Greetings!

I have served as an instructor for 30 years from elementary education to undergraduate levels in the fields of ESL, Humanities, Spanish, and Language Arts. I enjoying helping people with their dreams and goals. One-on-one or small groups allow a special focus on the learning process and I can better assist you towards desired results. I utilize useful learning strategies, memory techniques, and organizational patterns that fit YOU. The learning process is intriguing so I create fun, engaging, and purposeful ways to benefit the learner.

I worked 11 years as an elementary teacher, mostly grades 5 and 6. I work well with children. I hold a certification for grades 1-9.

I tutor ESL in business areas, workplace, and general. I tutor folks interested in taking TOEFL and TOEIC exams. I also provide cross-cultural communication training for corporate, non-profits, and university environments. I have often tutored writing for university-level students. I speak Spanish and Portuguese.

I work with many different nationalities and I am quite familiar with learning styles and structures of various languages. I am patient, kind, experienced, and determined. I know what is needed for second language students and for individuals who need to improve their writing/speaking skills for university level and in the workplace. I hold certifications in the fields of ESL, bilingual, management, Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), and Cultural Detective Facilitation.

*Side notes include publishing articles for Linkedin "Pulse" and poetry for various venues. I was recently accepted in the Sandy Springs Leadership program.

All questions are good ones. I receive excellent feedback and I am serious about what I do. Contact me for any questions and let's see what we can do for you!

I have prepared dozens of students for their TOEFL exams. In most cases, the students may be strong in listening and speaking but need writing and reading work. I have many students who just need speaking preparation. It's unusual when students are strong in all areas but it does happen! Let me help you gain English knowledge and test-taking strategies to simplify the process for you.

Great Lesson

Kathy is currently helping my son with his public speaking skills. He had a speech due in class and Kathy worked with him on tactics to deliver a great speech. My son is very difficult to understand at times and Kathy is working in general on getting him to slow down as he has a tendency to speak fast (the braces don't help!). So far, so good!!
