About Catherine



Catherine is a native French speaker, with a passion for languages, different cultures and world travels. She attended school then University in Bordeaux where she studied Applied Foreign Languages (English & Spanish).  A first visit to the UK in 1987 and a subsequent position as a French Language Assistant in Plymouth marked the start of a 30 year-long love affair with England. After spending several years in Devon working for an international company and using her language skills on a daily basis, Catherine moved to Frome (Somerset) with her young family in 1993. She then pursued a career in education, both as a French tutor in adult education and as a private tutor, acquiring loyal students of all ages and levels.
Her passion for helping others and supporting students to achieve their very best, led her to work for over 10 years as a special educational needs teaching assistant in a local College, where she developed much empathy towards students with learning difficulties. In June 2015, Catherine obtained an Open University degree in International Studies with Honours. She joined KLAS in April 2017 as a private French tutor for the Somerset area, preparing local students for their A Level exams.
When not teaching, Catherine loves cooking, socialising and gardening and practises yoga almost daily. She can also be found exploring the Somerset countryside on foot or cycling. Ultimately, Catherine would like to teach in Asia for a while however her beloved cat is not too pleased about the idea!
