My name is Kathy. I was born in Australia, but I have spent most of my life outside of Australia. I have lived and worked in 4 countries and visited over 30 countries. I love traveling and interacting with people from different cultures.
I am an enthusiastic trainer who likes to encourage, but also challenge my students. I find that many students lack confidence when they speak English, so I think it's important to work on self-confidence and to bring out the knowledge that often already exists. By listening carefully to my students and getting to know them well, I can select interesting teaching materials that best match their learning objectives.
I taught English at universities in Australia and then at a university in Donetsk, Ukraine. When I moved to the Netherlands, I spent many years training in intercultural communication, team building, conflict resolution and English language acquisition.
In January 2018 I returned to full-time English teaching and have been providing English courses to both individual students and groups, in the field of Business English, General English, and exam preparation (Cambridge & IELTS).
