Kate’s teaching journey began more than ten years ago when she moved to Thailand to teach ESL. She fell in love with teaching, and eventually returned to Canada to pursue a B.Ed. and an M.A. in Second Language Education from OISE at the University of Toronto. Since then, she has worked as an ESL / Language Arts tutor, supply teacher with the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, and an ESL instructor at Centennial College (Toronto) and Trent University (Peterborough).
Kate’s students have taught her that learning is largely relational. She believes that how students feel about themselves, their teacher, and the subject itself has a tremendous impact on their level of academic investment and performance. With this in mind, Kate strives to build positive relationships with her students, increase their confidence levels, and help them develop a personal connection to the topic at hand. Kate really enjoys tutoring, as it provides a unique opportunity to help students achieve their goals in a way that is both fun and manageable.
Kathryn is a recent Master’s graduate of the University of Toronto, who’s love of teaching and mentoring is sustained by her own lifelong love of learning and discovery. Her commitment to writing, film, and media studies has lead her through a highly successful academic career, including a Bachelor’s degree of High Distinction from U of T, a Master’s in Media Production at Ryerson University, and a Master’s degree from U of T in Cinema Studies. Her tenure as Head Teaching Assistant within U of T’s Cinema Studies Institute reignited her strong connection to the art of education, first discovered as a young, curious Montessori student. Kathryn also worked within The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Studies for its ESL Foundation Program. Along with a dedication to academic coaching, Kathryn is currently a freelance writer reporting on industry and business development in Canadian media. Kathryn has also worked for the Toronto International Film Festival, Ontario Creates, and the Canadian Media Producers Association.
