Kassidy fell in love with teaching through her experiences instructing science at the elementary and collegiate (graduate and undergraduate) levels. Her teaching style could be described as a balance of patience and kindness, flexibility and creativity, and an engaging sense of humor. She has over 10 years of teaching experience with a diverse mix of ages, abilities, and cultures; she has lived and taught in six countries.
Kassidy has both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science Degree in Applied Ecology and Environmental Science (with an emphasis on Botany and Wetlands, as well as Science Writing), from Michigan Technological University in the United States, in addition to a Transatlantic Master’s Degree in Forest Sciences and Business, from the University of Helsinki, Finland.
Growing up surrounded by snow, extreme weather, and nature, Kassidy naturally loves rural and countryside regions. Her hobbies include cooking (and of course eating), traveling (having traveled to over 40 countries), and anything involving nature (hiking, camping, etc.).
Kassidy has an ITTT Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), an ITTT Certificate in Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL), and an ITTT Certificate in Teaching Business English (TBE). She has also attended TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Workshops and Educational Psychology courses, as well as being TOEIC® (Test of English for International Communication) Certified, while teaching and living in Japan.
