Hi, my name's Katie, a qualified English language teacher from Bristol, UK. I have a neutral accent as I have lived in many different countries (Australia, Cyprus, Germany, Spain and Argentina) I have lots of experience teaching exams and academic study skills, fluency and language skills as well as business English. I am confident I can help you improve your written English, understand native speakers in conversation and lecturers and, of course, speak with confidence and better pronunciation.
I can come to your place of residence or we can use a private study room in Liverpool University library for class.
I'm a friendly and positive person! I think you would really enjoy my lessons and see clear progress. Give me a call to talk about your study needs : )
