Hi, I'm Katy!


I am a First-class graduate from a language degree, and am currently studying for a Masters in Translation. I am an experienced tutor here on mytutor.co.uk, having begun tutoring languages when I was 16, and having taught languages to students in British secondary schools, and English to international language schools and foreign students abroad.


I speak 7 languages, and study English grammar, and completely understand the difficulties that can crop up. However, I am a firm believer that languages are vital skill to have, and I'll be here to help. I use a large variety of tools and use the student's own interests to help keep their interest up. Speaking, listening, reading or writing, or English, essays and grammar, I have seen a huge success rate among my tutees in the past. My lessons are fun, varied and energetic, so time goes fast, you'll enjoy what you're doing and if you are struggling at the moment, languages won't seem as intimidating as they might do otherwise.

About my sessions

Each lesson begins with a recap of the previous session, a warm-up activity, a main task that we work through together, and a closer activity. I then end asking the student how they feel it is going, and will also give space for them to propose ideas of more things they want to learn, since language learning can cover any topic they already have an interest in. I give homework when I feel it is necessary. I also am up to date with the current school curriculum and understand how to lead a stu...

Each lesson begins with a recap of the previous session, a warm-up activity, a main task that we work through together, and a closer activity. I then end asking the student how they feel it is going, and will also give space for them to propose ideas of more things they want to learn, since language learning can cover any topic they already have an interest in. I give homework when I feel it is necessary. I also am up to date with the current school curriculum and understand how to lead a student to success with exam technique as well as subject knowledge.


My lessons will contain a mix of spoken, written, listening, essay and translation skills (just grammar, vocab and essay skills for English classes), and I will focus on individual challenging points in grammar, vocabulary and phrasing as the lessons progress. This of course varies with each student. I am always open to whatever they feel will be most helpful for them to learn. I will explain a point first, then work through examples with the student until they can confidently and accurately produce their own fluent work (written or spoken) and understand other texts with no help from me.


I take progress monitoring very seriously, and keep a record of all work the student has completed. So far, I have never had less than a very impressive level of progress among my students.
