Hi, Im Kathleen! I grew up in different countries
including Italy and finally I moved to Switzerland.
In 1994 I received the
RSA/Cambridge "Certificate in teaching English as a foreign language to Adults".
Since then I have taught in Zürich and Lugano. I have experience teaching private,
semi-private and groups at all levels. My main resources are the Headway and Cambridge
series, however, I supplement with other materials as well.
As for my philosophy, I believe the most important role I have as a teacher is to
assist students in their language development, which in turn leads to their ability to
communicate with people from all over the world. I view Teaching English as a Foreign
Language as a way to further promote better relations and cooperation among the people of
the world because communication is the core of being able to understand and accept
After teaching for the last several years I realize that it is an ongoing process of
professional and personal growth.
