Hello, my name is Kate and I am originally from Florida in the United States. I studied World History at the University of Tampa and I earned my certification to teach in Costa Rica. (TEFL certification attached)
I have gained experience teaching English in-class to childeren ages 4 to 16 while living in Costa Rica, as well as private tutoring for advanced learners and adults.
Engilsh is my native language. I have been a language learner all of my life and that is why I know what truly works well when it comes to learning a foreign laguage. I learned Swedish through immersion by travel, and I studied Portuguese, Spanish and French in school. I am currently working to perfect my Spanish. I love to travel and have lived many places around the world such as Sweden, Costa Rica and Peru.
I teach a strong foundation of grammar, but I also focus on techniques in areas like intonation, pronunciation, and conversation skills to encourage true fluency. I have also had success helping students achieve higher test results on language exams. (IELTS prep- focusing on speaking and writing)
