Homogeneous Catalysts

Why are enzymes normally homogeneous catalysts? I missed this explanation today in lecture.

Enzymes tend to be homogeneous catalysts because they're usually in the same phase as the molecule it reacts with, to speed up the decomposition of a molecule.

Are there other examples of things that are generally homogeneous catalysts that we should be aware of?
