About Kati

I have been teaching for over 20 years in all subject areas. Science is my specialty along with reading & writing. I will work with infants up through third grade in all subject areas & science through 8th grade. Although I am unable to get a science endorsement on my early childhood certificate, I am rated as highly qualified to teach science by a large urban school district. I have an Illinois Early Childhood teaching certificate with a special ed endorsement. I understand the Illinois State Learning Standards and the emphasis on ISAT testing. I understand the importance of early intervention and strongly believe the earlier a suspected problem is addressed the better for both the child and parent. I understand the frustrations of trying to get help for a child through the school district during this economic crisis of ongoing budget cuts. I have successfully navigated the school system as both a parent and educator. I use a holistic approach - your child's interests, needs, family concerns will all be incorporated in to my tutoring strategy. The benefit of being an early childhood educator is I understand the importance of the whole child, not just the subject being taught. I have been teaching for over 20 years in all subject areas.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a MS Early Childhood Education with special ed endorsement and an MA in Leadership & Administration from Dominican University, River Forest, I have numerous graduate science credits and I'm a NBCT in early childhood education. I have 24 years teaching experience both in and out of the classroom, including preschool, kindergarten, science and gifted summer school. I've worked with students and families to get appropriate placements and am experienced with IEPs. I've trained teachers in early childhood science methods and presented parent workshops. I've also presented at local, state and national conferences both in Early Childhood and Science.
