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 course programmes for those looking to learn quickly and build fluency in Spanish, German, English, Portuguese, Italian, French, Catalan and Dutch.
I also offer conversation classes, one-off study sessions and regular support for GCSE, A-level and beyond.
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.
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!
I offer courses for beginners, GCSE-level students, A-level, degree-level and adult learners.
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.
