Hey! Im Katie, and Im from America, but I live in Vietnam. Ive traveled and lived all around the world. Straight after college I got my TEFL certificate so I could keep traveling and living in countries I loved. That led me to Spain, and then to Vietnam. I can't wait to learn more about you and your story. It's so much fun to meet people from all walks of life here on Italki. Let's get started.
Me as a Teacher
Please don't hesitate to ask me questions during our lesson. My goal is to provide a space where you can overcome shyness when speaking English and use the language naturally.
My lessons & teaching style
In class I use lots of tools to support students like videos, articles, games and music to make learning more enjoyable. Even though it is a professional class, I have a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for you. I have also supported IELTS prep work for students band 6. I encourage you to talk as much as possible, and to practice using the language naturally. Make lots of mistakes, because thats how we learn and have fun. I will write down the mistakes and send you the notes so you can review them later.
Instead of a big focus on pronunciation (unless that is your focus) I tend to focus more on how you can communicate your ideas, thoughts and opinions clearly.

Learning English is a long journey, it needs a lot of work but with teacher Katie it is really enjoyable!
Katie is a great lecturer, available, meticulous and i think that i couldn’t have chosen a better teacher.
I recommend Katie to anyone who wants to improve their English.
