About Karlyn

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!
