About me

I am a creative writer and artist in my spare time. I have a special lightbox where I record sand animations of my stories and poems. I have a glass-topped box with a light inside. I draw with sand on the glass, and it creates beautiful pictures which I record on camera. I also do 5-Rhythms dance, which is an expressive dance form for mental well-being and healing.

Testimonials

Kathryn was an excellent tutor. She has got in-depth knowledge of the English language and great tutoring skills. I had only 5 classes with her before the exam date and my IELTS Academic writing score improved by one band. She is generous with her time and takes it personally that you do well at the exam. I would highly recommend Kathryn to anyone who wants to improve their IELTS score.

"Kathryn was incredibly helpful. She was thorough and honest and really helped me make the most of my post graduate personal statement. It was particularly helpful going through some questions with her so she could really see what I was trying to get across. I would highly recommend her!". Annie, UK

I have been improving my English for IELTS writing and speaking through Kate's lessons. I am more confident than ever before when I write an essay because I know what I need to do to avoid errors. I am taking more lessons from Kate in order to achieve my goal. Tachika, Japan.

Kate is the best teacher I've ever met! Daniel, China.

Kate Nixon has helped me to write my CV, motivation and reference letters for MBA to one of the top universities in the UK. The format of these documents was completely unfamiliar, I couldn’t find the starting point, and my English was still not good enough to impress the admission team. Kate has structured my ideas, emphasized the key aspects and wrote essays eloquently as only a highly educated native speaker and a professional writer could do. Both admission team and I highly appreciated work done by her and as a result, I received a place on the MBA program. Aleksei Savko. IT Professional

Kate is more than a professional English teacher, she is an adviser and a coach who takes personal pride in striving for the success of anyone who approaches her. She was exceptional to me because she helped me gain much needed speaking confidence in just two online, face-to-face lectures. Thanks to the Skype conversations with Katey my IELTS speaking result improved from 6.0 to 7.5. Last but not least, Katey is master of many trades, for whom the pessimistic assumption that learning somehow 'stops' when you leave the university is at odds with the evidence. Isn't she a great example for every learner? Boyco Boychev
