About Katie

I believe the best teachers are the ones who constantly and continually seek to acquire more knowledge and expand their horizons, no matter how many degrees they have or years they've spent in the classroom. This passion and thirst for knowledge is what I want to share with my students, because learning should be fun and satisfying, never a chore.

With a combined 8 years of teaching experience - Speech, English as a Second Language, and Computer Skills - I have found working with students to be extremely rewarding and fulfilling. Getting to work with an individual one-on-one allows me to really personalize the lesson and structure it around the student's needs and goals.

I have 7 years of experience teaching ESL and a Master's degree in Communication with a Rhetoric focus. Since I was a little kid, I've been driven by the need to master the English language and its proper uses (ask me why!).

Please feel free to contact me for more information - I look forward to speaking with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Polish

I was born in Poland and thus am a native Polish speaker. I also attended Polish Saturday school from 1st grade through high school, during which time I received instruction in Polish in a variety of subjects, including Polish language. I am fluent in Polish - speaking, reading and writing. I have 7 years of experience teaching ESL and a Master's degree in Communication with a Rhetoric focus.

Public Speaking

With a B.A. and M.A. in Communication Studies, I have studied public speaking throughout my college years. Importantly, as a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Communication at NIU during my graduate studies, I was an Instructor for two sections of COMS 100: Fundamentals of Oral Communication (equivalent to Speech, as the course is commonly known). Having taught the course at the college level, I submit that I possess the necessary qualifications to tutor in this subject.
