Kathy Byrne

Adults' Teacher

The best feeling in teaching is when students are so focused on communicating with each other that they forget they are speaking English.  I love the real communication and exchanges of ideas that happen in adult classes.  

Kathy started her teaching career in 1999 in Madrid, where she taught everything from specialised business courses to Young Learner classes.  She became a Celta tutor in 2005 and has since taught and trained in several locations including the U.K., Malaysia, and the U.A.E.
