Hello! My name is Kay and I am a professional English teacher living in London.
I love making art, watching films, playing video games, reading books. And I love being in nature! I am a big fan of hiking and camping.
In 2016, I moved to Osaka, Japan and lived there for 5 years teaching English. I came home to the UK in September 2021.
I love teaching because I can meet new people, share our cultures, and help you towards your goals. So, please go ahead and book a trial lesson, and let’s get started!
