I like the varied means which Kate uses to teach. She uses videos and online articles on interesting topics. She uses them to teach pronunciation, phrasal verbs, and idioms. I have speaking and writing practice.
Kate is very involved as she works with me. She is always prepared and is a good time-keeper. She supports me and motivates me to learn. She is patient and tolerant when I make mistakes. She is natural, humorous and has an open mind.
We use materials from my profession and from everyday life. This is much stronger than learning from textbooks. Kate offers many ideas on her Facebook page. She is knowledgeable about new applications to learn English. I’m improving my English but also learning about current events and other topics of interest. Thanks to her, I’m learning real-life English and I have overcome my fear of speaking.
I love the way that she views learning as a process and not just a set of goals.
I also appreciate the fact that Kate is a language learner, too. She is interested in my country and culture.
