Hi there!

My name is Cathy. I have been a Celta certified English teacher for the last 8 years and have taught in England, New Zealand, Germany, Italy and Brazil.  I have taught students of all ages from 3 years old through to 65 years old, in groups and individuals, in schools and in private settings.

I was born in Englandraised in New Zealand, lived in Germany and Italy, traveled throughout Europe and spent 4 years living in a small farming town in Brazil before finally moving back to New Zealand. I love to explore new places!

As well as an English Teacher I am a qualified teacher of Physical Education, Health and Social Studies at the secondary level. I am energetic and love to be outdoors playing sports. I also have a Bachelors degree in Psychology.

I adore reading (when I have the time!), I love writing and recieving letters (yes! people still send letters!), yoga, walking, baking, crafts, Pinterest and eating.
