About Katie

Hi! I've been doing some sort of tutoring or teaching for fifteen years. While studying for my BA in German studies at Bard College, I helped tutor other German students and spent a semester at the Humboldt University in Berlin. After graduation I got a job teaching ESL to adults at Kaplan in Durham and proceeded to save up money to return to Germany. When I moved back to Berlin in 2008 I spent a year teaching ESL to kids; using songs, games and puppets to engage the children and teach them English. The company I worked for sent us to various kindergartens and elementary schools throughout the city to do group lessons with kids from 3 to 10 years old. While I was there my German reached a level of fluency that only immersion can provide.

In 2013 I graduated from the University of Leeds in England with my Masters in Music Performance and moved back to my hometown of Durham. Since then, I have been teaching private singing lessons as well as German classes to kids at the CHICLE language institute in Carrboro. I pride myself on being a patient and supportive teacher and believe that learning should be fun; studying and hard work should always be encouraged and rewarded.
