About Kali

I earned a bachelor's degree from Cornell College, majoring in Ethnic Studies as well as International Studies through Language and Culture. While at Cornell, I was a paid language tutor for my peers, helping them succeed in Spanish, French and German. I am currently tutoring in Spanish and English.

I am a native English speaker and studied two years of Honors English through the International Baccalaureate program. I studied Spanish for 7 years, including three months in Guatemala. In addition, Cornell College granted me with the Grace Wormer award for my academic excellence in foreign languages.

My tutoring approach is to have a plan but also be flexible in order to deliver what the student needs. Whether it is understanding grammar concepts, increasing vocabulary, studying for a test, or becoming more conversational, I am excited to work together to find the best solution that will help you succeed.

Please contact me if you are ready to get started!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
