About Kathryn

Having discovered that I have a passion for learning foreign languages, I graduated from Mount Holyoke College in 2012 with a double degree in English Literature and Italian Language (and Literature). I have worked in a variety of secondary school and university environments in both Italy and the United States—as a private tutor for high school students when I studied abroad and as a mentor and tutor for the Italian department at Mount Holyoke College—and I have also had the opportunity to pursue my passion for teaching English as a second language with the SITE Lombardia Program. Professionally, I am interested in writing, editing and translating, teaching English as a second language, and studying foreign languages. Academically, I am interested in questions regarding language, place and personal/cultural identity.

I have had experience teaching and formatting lessons using the CLIL teaching methodology and I have worked with many non-native speaking students at the high school and university levels. I am committed to modifying lessons to fit a student's preferred learning style and areas of interest. I also believe that an understanding of the basic language building blocks--grammar, vocabulary, content--are fundamental to improving English language skills.

I have lived and worked abroad in Italy and I received my degree in Italian Language and Literature from Mount Holyoke College in 2012. I've also taken a series of language proficiency exams and I continue to tutor, to read, to speak, and to write in Italian. I would be happy to furnish examples of my language ability, if necessary.

Feel free to contact me--I have a flexible schedule and I would be happy to work with you!
