Hi! I'm Kate, a full-time, professional tutor based in Petersfield (MA in Medieval and Modern Languages from St John's College, Oxford). I offer private tuition via Zoom and intensive courses in Spanish, German, English, Portuguese, Italian, French, Catalan and Dutch.

My focus is on helping students achieve their potential. I work with each individual student to find the methods and techniques that they can use to develop a deep understanding of the target language, building confidence and self-belief.

I offer complete GCSE and A-level courses for Spanish, Portuguese, German, French and Italian, so you can enter for your language qualifications with me or have extra tuition to support your work at school or college.
For GCSE Spanish students, there is also the option of joining one of my fun and supportive Study Groups (from £20 per week) to cover all the key grammar topics and build confidence in speaking and writing.

In 2021, 100% of my A-Level students achieved grade A* and four gained places to read Modern Languages at Oxford.

Tutoring Experience

I started my teaching career in 2008 with the Government of Andorra, where I held the post of Lecturer of English.

Since then, I have taught privately and at colleges in several European countries: Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal and Italy, and have mostly lived in Spain since 2009.

I am now tutoring full-time and have a mix of students learning for professional, academic and personal goals.

Tutoring Approach

Each course is 100% bespoke and personalised to the needs of the student.

Your course is designed for you, based on a short questionnaire and/or initial consultation to set clear goals for you and help me to understand your learning style.

Lessons often feel relaxed and fairly casual, because in my experience this is absolutely the best way to encourage real communication and thought in the target language!

For more advanced learners, there are plenty of academic resources and authentic materials to allow you to engage fully with your language. Courses can include grammar, linguistics, literature and cultural topics.

No matter what your level, your lessons will be full of real-world language and will deliver the content and vocabulary that you need to achieve your goals.
