Katie Collenette


Hi I’m Katie. I was born in the UK and grew up in England. I graduated from Middlesex University in London in 1996 with a BA (Hons) in Education with Qualified Teacher Status. Following that I worked as a Primary School Teacher in England. In 2002 I emigrated to New Zealand and started teaching English to international students of other language.

I am a caring teacher who works very hard to bring out the best in all of my students. I use a variety of teaching styles in order to cater to all of my students’ individual learning styles. As a teacher I try to generate a comfortable atmosphere that encourages everyone to learn whilst having fun by using a wide range of activities such as pair work, group work and games. I have worked at Kingston since October 2015 as the teacher of New Zealand Certificate in English Language Level 2.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, travelling, camping and stand up paddle boarding.
