I strongly believe that an individual can learn a language effectively only by communicating, understanding and by being exposed to the language.
-Firstly I try to understand my student's needs
-I conduct a small test to know their English language level
-I will understand the area of their problems.
Keeping these in mind, I make my lessons interactive and try to make it as engaging as possible. My sessions will give you a lot of scope to learn and practice the language. I will also give continuous feedback on the positive aspects and areas that my student has to work on.
I also ensure that I have a friendly rapport with my students, so I guarantee that I will make your language learning journey really smooth, fun and worth while.
Just after my college I started working with the British Council.My initial stint with the British council as a customer service adviser, helped me see how English language changed the lives of various people professionally and personally. That's when I decided to take up the CELTA course which is an internationally recognised initial teaching qualification from Cambridge.CELTA gave me the opportunity to teach students of various levels.That's when I discovered that teaching could be fun.I loved the fact that by teaching, I indirectly changed lives for good. I am always ready to learn and try my hands on new things.
Apart from the time I work I have listed a few things I love to do:
- I am an actor and a model (very passionate about acting)
- I love to travel - I love to dance - I love to chit chat & make new friends - I love to listen to music - I love to watch movies - I try to learn different languages(I try) - I read ( not a voracious reader,though) - I love to hangout with friends - I love to click self portraits- Big time skin care junkie.

My association with the British Council also paved way for me to finish the CELTA (August 2019) course. This course has equipped me with the principles of effective teaching. It taught me a range of teaching techniques and gave me hands on practical teaching experience for one month. I completed my course with a PASS A grade, and I am waiting for the internal movement from customer service adviser to a full time British Council English language tutor.
Internships (2016- 2017): During college I equipped my skills through working for organisations like THOMAS COOK & BIBLE tours (May 2016- June 2016) as an intern. I have also travelled to various tourist spots like Bangkok, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia as a tourist to observe its heritage and culture as a part of my core subject Travel Management and have coordinated as the assistant tour manager.

It also helped me come up with different strategies to market their brand.
Event Management: I have closely worked with teams in high school as I was a part of my school student council & also in college level acquired good experience in liaising and motivating the team in working towards the success of an event as a part of various committees.
I have strong leadership skills and I’ve been a good motivator to encourage the team to achieve the set goals. I have also cultivated a good administrative skill to motivate, manage the team and perform to the satisfaction of my superiors and to best of my ability in any given role.
Key Skills & Strengths: I have been a good team player, which has helped me to be productive both as a individual and as a mentor to motivate the team to achieve the set targets and goals. Creative Ideas and understanding the operational process and learning the new process and areas has been one of my key skills and strengths. Adapting and willingness to learn has opened doors for me to explore in unknown territories and help me excel in those areas.

I’m so happy that I found Ms. Catherine at the right time. My child was struggling with English and I came to know about her through a friend. And I’m very glad my child is so comfortable with her. She has been so patient with him and he has started opening up than before and he’s starting to become confident in his language day by day. I’m so happy to see his progress. Massive thanks to Ms. Catherine for helping him. Would strongly recommend you if you’re looking for someone who can be patient with you and guide you step by step :)
Having decided to take an English exam, I was particularly worried about the speaking test. What I needed was an opportunity to regularly practice speaking and, even more, I needed confidence. Ms. Catherine did a great job in providing me with both. The lessons were varied and challenging and would always help me push beyond my limits. Ms. Catherine's feedback was useful, punctual but never encumbering. Above all, she helped me boost my confidence with his encouragement and with her practical suggestions on how to approach the exam. After our lessons, the actual speaking test was easy as pie. I passed the exam at grade A, and it’s not a coincidence that Speaking was recognized as my strongest point.
If you are a busy person with lots of things to do, thousands of projects to develop, millions of issues to solve then lessons with Catherine provide a solution. I could manage my schedule with complete flexibility and review the levels and goals all the time. With a short effort and a lot of help from Catherine I became a better speaker in a couple of weeks.
Hi there, I improved my language from beginner to intermediate level by learning English with Catherine in a few months’ time. I speak much more freely and grammatically correct than before. This training has helped me overcome the language barrier. All our lessons were very interesting and visual and I really enjoyed it.
It was very important for me to improve my English quickly and I was surprised after some lessons online with Teacher Catherine. She suited the lessons to my needs and it was very effective for me. Her methods were very different from the other online schools and I was able to have discussions about different topics in a short time. Moreover, it was very pleasant and interesting to talk with a friendly teacher. Thanks!
I have been working with Catherine for the last two and a half years. I got in contact with her because I needed some help in order to get the Certificate of Proficiency in English. I was looking for a teacher, with a deep knowledge of English and reliability in his or her schedules. Catherine meets all these requirements and, at the same, time she has a variety of resources that have helped me greatly. I believe that hiring her has been a very good decision. I have not only passed the exam but also my writing, use of English, speaking and spelling have improved dramatically during these two and a half years working with her. The money that I have spent on these classes has paid off with a good result and Catherine will continue being my teacher.
I started the lessons with Miss. Catherine to prepare for the my exam, especially the writing and speaking parts. She helped me understand the format of the exam and she gave me very good feedback in order to improve my grammar, syntax and vocabulary. She has lots of exam preparation materials which helps a lot and she always takes time to answer any questions you may have. Studying with Miss. Catherine was both interesting and fun and it gave me confidence for the exam.
