About me

I specialise in IB geography. If you need help with exam preparation, IAs, or your EE, please get in touch :) I study both physical and human geography, so i am familiar with most geographic concepts and enjoy transferring the knowledge to students. 

My experience in tutoring includes Biology, French and English as a foreign language to students at my international school and at a local youth centre.

I did the IB Diploma programme but can also provide tutoring in subjects listed below at GCSE level. Feel free to contact me for any IB specific questions as well - Internal assessments for language B, Extended essay advice, IB specific exam preparation, etc. 

I know how frustrating it can be in the IB at certain stages - facing all the deadlines at once, trying to tackle revision while applying to universities and getting all CAS hours in... My main advice is to remain calm and organised, approaching things systematically. Ask for help when you need it and remember what my Geography teacher kept telling us; it's a marathon, not a sprint :)

About my sessions

As a tutor I am calm and focused, maintaining the belief that learning should be fun. IB Geography especially provides enough space for students to find interesting learning resources, rather than just learning case studies by heart. Therefore it is important to me to know what kind of a learning style suits you best. 

We agree on te content of the session and talk about your overall goals ahead of time, so as to make the most of the time we have in the session. We can go through the learning outcomes or work on past papers, depending on what you think you need most to achieve the desired results.

I am very happy with the work Katja has done with my son. In the beginning I was a bit unsure, as it was a first time we have chosen the on-line course vs face-to-face tutoring but it worked very well - better than what we did before! She has managed to build good relationships with my son, was very flexible and creative in how to organise and structure the studies. She knows very well the IB exam syllabus and practical side and techniques related to Geograhpy exam. I can recommend her without hesitation.

Questions Katja has answered

What is the difference between Thomas Malthus' and Ester Boserup's view on population growth?

Thomas Malthus is the author of the Malthusian theory; the view that suggests that the global population is increasing exponentially, while global resource production and extraction are only increasing arithmetically. Hence he sugests that there is a point where the Earth's resources will not be able to support the ever growing population.

Boserup's view contrasts it. She suggests that the population itself is a resource. Humans have the means and knowledge to overcome the lack of resources by inventing new ways of resource extraction and production. In support of this view are new ways of food production; fertilizers, food technology, modified crops, new technologies to find oil reserves.This increases the Earth's carrying capacity (even though points of crisis may be encountered on the way).
