About Karlyn


Bio

I am currently a senior at Grand Valley State University. I am studying Psychology, with aspirations of becoming a child counselor, and Spanish so that I can help and communicate with more people. I enjoy working with people, kids especially, to help them learn and grow as people. In my free time, I enjoy running, reading, babysitting, singing, playing the piano and traveling.

I am currently a senior at Grand Valley State University. I am studying Psychology, with aspirations of becoming a child counselor, and Spanish so that I can help and communicate with more people. I enjoy working with people, kids especially, to help them learn and grow as people. In my free time, I enjoy running, reading, babysitting, singing, playing the piano and traveling.

This past semester I tutored four students, ages 11-15 in English. They were native Spanish speakers and I helped them with their homework, preparing for tests and gaining a better understanding of daily English language. I have also volunteered in second and third grade Spanish immersion classes with Jenison Public Schools as a teacher's assistant. During my time there, I helped with their math, reading and writing skills. I like to have fun when I teach and I know the kids do too, so my lessons often incorporate games and new ways, appropriate for the subject and age, to teach and learn about a subject.
What I love about tutoring is likely the same as many teachers. I enjoy helping kids succeed and become more confident in themselves and their abilities. I know I've done my job when a student smiles at their accomplishments.

I will have my Spanish minor at the end of this coming semester (December 2015).
I've studied abroad in Spain for one semester and feel that I can communicate proficiently with the Spanish language.
I've volunteered in two Spanish immersion classrooms.

This past semester, I tutored four students in English and all families were satisfied. I have a love of reading, writing and learning new words to incorporate into daily life.

While I don't have professional experience in these subjects, during my years of child care I've often helped students with their homework in various subjects like math, writing and reading. I have specific experience with younger ages (4-6) in helping them learn their alphabet and recognizing words (in both English and Spanish).

I look forward to hearing from and meeting you and your families to help you learn and succeed and even have fun doing so!

Karlyn is a very good tutor.

Karlyn has a great attitude. She is upbeat, confident and honest. She has taught us vowels and greetings. She has answered our questions and taught us how to greet customers and ask them what we can help with. This was our first class. We will be having more with Karlyn
