About me

Hi! My name’s Kat and I study Modern Languages and Cultures at Durham University. Within my degree, I focus on French, Arabic and Persian. During my spare time, I also study German (studied German at A Level and in my first year at university) and, as my mum is Bulgarian, I grew up in a bilingual environment - so you can see that languages make up a large part of my life!

Hi! My name’s Kat and I study Modern Languages and Cultures at Durham University. Within my degree, I focus on French, Arabic and Persian. During my spare time, I also study German (studied German at A Level and in my first year at university) and, as my mum is Bulgarian, I grew up in a bilingual environment - so you can see that languages make up a large part of my life!

What I love most about learning languages is that it’s not just merely about learning vocabulary, you need to also immerse yourself in the target language in order to grasp the linguistic nuances. Additionally, I enjoy how through languages, you become more cross-culturally aware which in turn broadens your horizons.

With my students, one of my main aims will be for them to enjoy our lessons because I believe that enjoyment is crucial to true progress.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

About my sessions

During the complimentary introductory session that I offer, together with my student, we can construct a unique, tailor-made plan which will guide the sessions so that students reach their desired goals. I think that this plan, alongside with mini assessments along the way will help track the student’s progress and as a result, the student will feel more confident in using the target language. In my opinion, it is merely a lack of confidence that is the barrier stopping students from succeedi...

During the complimentary introductory session that I offer, together with my student, we can construct a unique, tailor-made plan which will guide the sessions so that students reach their desired goals. I think that this plan, alongside with mini assessments along the way will help track the student’s progress and as a result, the student will feel more confident in using the target language. In my opinion, it is merely a lack of confidence that is the barrier stopping students from succeeding.

I welcome a friendly and fun approach to tutoring so that the student feels that they can ask as many questions as they wish and this, together with being a patient person, will be a good environment in which to learn.

Within the sessions, we would usually start with a recap of the previous session to cement what was learnt before. This would be followed by an informal conversation in order not only to get to know the student but also to practice listening and speaking skills as a little warm-up to start thinking in the target language!

The main body of the session can be a mixture of vocabulary building, comprehension, grammar, speaking or listening practice. This can be tailored to individual needs or to complement work done in class.

I look forward to having an introductory session with you soon!

Katerina has been a fantastic find for my son who we realised had learnt very little in the last two years before is GCSE year so having Katerina getting him up to speed has been fantastic. She has been incredibly patient and pushed him to work hard and he has responded so I can highly recommend Katerina, its never to late to get help.
