Hi, I'm Katia, I am a fully qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) and I am passionate about road safety. Here is a little back-ground information about me so you can understand better who I am as a person.
Some 20 years ago I gained my degree in catering and have worked in kitchens, bars and restaurants in Europe. I trained many teenagers in their quest to become great chefs and silver service staff. I always took great proud in my job and enjoyed watching people improve their skills.
However I found the job unsociable in terms of the hours required so it was time to move on. I loved driving and wondered if I could combine my teaching skills with my love of driving. Hence my decision to become a driving instructor was born.
So while I took upon studying to become a driving instructor I started my own dog walking/sitting business to pay for the course and make ends meet. I continue to do this on a very part time basis and I still have the odd dog staying with us from time to time. Please see photos of me on with my beloved four legged friends. Naturally I also have 2 of my own mad dogs; both spaniels who keep me somewhat sane.
I absolutely love the freedom of being my own boss and seeing pupils pass their driving test just adds to the thrill of this job. I hope you give me the opportunity to teach you to drive. If so, I am sure we will both enjoy the process.
I was fortunate to be trained by LDC in the latest adult coaching and training techniques so you can be assured the training I give will be of the highest standard.
I chose to work with LDC because everybody is different and the LD System allows for flexibility in lessons so that you learn to drive safely at a rate that suits you. I aim to make every lesson enjoyable and as productive as possible. The LD System just helps me to do this more effectively.
Lessons are always conducted in a calm, friendly and relaxed manner as I firmly believe in making pupils feel at ease during lessons.
Well I hope this gives you a brief idea about me so please feel free to click here to "Contact me"
