Kathleen Paolo Nicole Stephanie Canton of Ticino News Miscellaneous

Hi, I’m 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 other’s lifestyles.

After teaching for the last several years I realize that it is an ongoing process of professional and personal growth.
