Katherine D

Profession: English Teacher, Office Manager, Travel Consultant, Volunteer Worker

Teaching Experience: I have experience in preparing students for IELTS Exams who are trying to Immigrate or qualify for scholarships to study abroad.

I have taught students that come from Korea, Japan, China, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and surrounding countries just to name a few.

I look forward to helping you achieve your IELTS goals by teaching you skills and showing you strategies to help you meet the criteria you require to achieve the score you need. I value your time and want to use it wisely so I will also assign you homework that will help you improve in as short a time as possible. For IELTS preparation you will require at least 30 minutes per class, though one hour is better as it allows us to cover more material without being interrupted.

I've also tutored kids and teenagers and I understand how difficult learning a new language can be.

Interests: I love to travel, meet new people, learn about different cultures. I've been to Bali, many places in the USA, Toronto-Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Chile, Peru and Ecuador, I hope to visit Europe and Asia one day, I come from a very artistic family, I really enjoy painting so I've been taking an art course for the last year. I'm currently living in Ecuador helping as a volunteer teacher with my husband.

Education: I completed all my education in Australia. I studied Travel and Tourism and worked as a Travel Agent for a couple of years, I also studied Business Administration and Managed a Company for several years. For the past 2 years I've been working at Cambly, teaching English to students from all over the world and all walks of life.
