About Kathryn

Learning a language should be FUN!

Are you new to the area and want to learn English to shop and make new friends? Are you a stay at home mom and you want to learn a little English while your children are at school? Are you learning English as a Second Language but you just need a little extra help?

I can help you!

I like to make language learning FUN! Once we meet and I assess your English ability, I can pinpoint your problem areas and help you succeed! I like to use games, role play and real life activities to help you practice important grammar and conversational skills.

If you need help writing an essay for class, I can guide you through the process and help you to find your voice and express yourself in your new language.

Do you need to pass the TOEFL or raise your score? I can help.

Message me today so we can get started! :)

P.S. I have taught ESL overseas in Senegal, West Africa and in the USA. I have lived and worked in several places in the USA as a Conversational English instructor, an English Grammar teacher, and and ESOL Instructor. Recently I have struck out on my own as a private tutor. I have a B.A. in English from the University of South Carolina. I have a TESL certification from Oxford Seminars and completed my MDiv in 2009.

In short, Kati was very personable and created a trust with my daughter immediately. She learned new words and meanings with her first lesson. We look forward to her continued lessons with Kati.
