About Katey Nixon

I have been teaching English online since February 2012. I specialise in speaking and writing practice for IELTS.

In the 1980s, I studied at York university and qualified with a BA Hons in Economics. After that, I retrained in Computing Science and gained an MSc from Staffordshire university before working in computing for the next 15 years. I later worked in health and social care as an advocate before qualifying in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). I am a fully qualified to teach English to speakers of other languages, with a Pearson Cert. EDI (CELTA equivalent).

I am a native speaker with an English accent. My voice is very clear, and I do not have a regional accent. Please watch my video introduction where you will be able to hear a sample of my voice.

If you want to prepare for the IELTS speaking test, we will be using real past exam questions.

I am a highly patient teacher with a gentle and kind teaching style. I understand the needs of language learners because I am myself a student of Mandarin and Russian. I also write as a hobby and have had articles and poems published in professional journals.

Before booking a lesson, please take a note of my cancellation policy:
If you wish to reschedule a lesson, please allow at least 36 hours before the class to allow for time differences in other parts of the world. If you do not attend a class without notifying me at least 36 hours before the class start time I will ask to be paid for the class. This is because I am a full-time online English teacher and make my living through this medium and my schedule is always very busy.
