Katy

Clapham Tutor

I am a graduate in Modern Languages (French, Spanish and Catalan) from University of Manchester. In my professional life I work for a children's book publishing company in their multilingual Foreign Editions department.
I am a fluent speaker in French and Spanish (with knowledge of Catalan, Italian, Portuguese... and counting!) with a genuine passion for languages and teaching.

Tutoring Experience

I have gained a wealth of experience teaching English and French in various environments and locations. I have worked as a private language tutor in Spain where I gave individual classes to students of all ages and levels. I also successfully prepared many of my students for official exams such as TOEFL and IELTS.
I have enjoyed mentoring students on a one-to-one basis in English, French and study skills.

Tutoring Approach

I pride myself on having an approachable and friendly style which fosters a positive environment that is conducive to learning. I believe that tutoring is fantastic for encouraging a deeper understanding of a subject that is sometimes hard to nurture in a packed school classroom.

My experience of teaching a wide variety of students has provided me with an open and flexible approach whereby classes can be tailored to the student's individual needs and monitored accordingly.
