    Kathryn is a patient teacher and very encourage. In my first trail lesson, i had discussion with Kathryn to figure out what I lack of in English. I feel great to know myself better and excited to see the improvement.

    My two teenage kids have been with Kathryn for several classes already. They both like Kathryn very much. Especially my daughter, who is also an animal lover, she is very thrilled to her studying material. I met Kathryn at the trial class only and I love her accent, so British.
