About Kara

I was on a farm in La Chinantla, Mexico working alongside other Mexicans and friends from school when I realized that one of my dreams and goals was to one day become fluent in Spanish. The language had been one of my passions since my freshman year, I was a member of the Spanish club for four years, and my senior year of high school I became the president of the club. Throughout high school I was also taking honors Spanish classes and tutoring a younger high school student off and on. While attending the University of Missouri-Columbia, I double-majored in Spanish and Psychology and the spring of my junior year I studied abroad in Mendoza, Argentina for 5 months. I learned a lot in the classroom, but my Spanish improved the most through my interactions and conversations with people on a small organic farm where I worked my last week in the country. So, after completing my majors at Mizzou I went back to work and live on the farm for 3 months. Through my experience I have learned the importance of speaking Spanish rather than just focusing on the reading and writing. Therefore, I would make sure to focus on all aspects of Spanish when tutoring.

While in college I worked as a career counselor at the Mizzou Career Center for 3 1/2 years. Part of my job involved revising, editing, and helping students write resumes, cover letters, and personal statements. I received one semester of training on how to counsel students who were undecided on a major and help students with the job search process, such as preparing for interviews and completing documents.

I am qualified and skilled to tutor in both Spanish and/or Career Development and would be honored to have the opportunity to work with you.
