About Kendal


Bio

I am a certified high school English teacher currently teaching in a western suburb right outside of Chicago. I have been teaching for several years, specifically with seniors (English 12) for the last three years. I work heavily with analytical writing and higher-level critical reading. However, I have worked with reading at the middle-school levels, as well.

My undergraduate degree is in Creative Writing, so I very much enjoy and encourage more non-formatted types of reading writing, too....

I am a certified high school English teacher currently teaching in a western suburb right outside of Chicago. I have been teaching for several years, specifically with seniors (English 12) for the last three years. I work heavily with analytical writing and higher-level critical reading. However, I have worked with reading at the middle-school levels, as well.

My undergraduate degree is in Creative Writing, so I very much enjoy and encourage more non-formatted types of reading writing, too. Thinking: finding written works that truly make one think, regardless the type of text, is the goal.

I have worked one-on-one with ACT prep--both reading and writing--in the past. I have also worked with English language learners in the areas phonetic pronunciation of the English language, syntax, and grammar.

My true passion is the academic focus of reading a complex text and analytically creating an argument, to which is further supported in an essay. I have worked with all ages (including adult learners) and find that, as long as I have the love of teaching, the connection comes naturally.

Please feel free to reach out! I would love to help advance your understanding, confidence, and eventually love, for reading and writing.

I do coach Cross Country in the fall and Girls' Track in the spring, so the winter and summer months are easily flexible with scheduling. Not to discourage the fall and spring--we would just need to find a consistent time.

Public Speaking

I initially went into public relations after receiving my undergraduate degree, where I worked for a large agency that continually pitched to major corporate brands. I actively took part in many of these big presentations. Public speaking is also an aspect of common core, so we actively work on these skills in my classroom through such activities as Socratic Seminars and presentations.
