About Kai

While in the military (2004-2011), I tutored other students in college-level Arabic courses, including Modern Standard Arabic, middle eastern history and Arab culture. When I returned to college for the sciences (2009-2012), I tutored college-level students in pre-calculus, organismal biology and geology. I also volunteered with college-bound high students, tutoring the same topics, as well as history, geography and English. I have also tutored ESL while attending PSU.(2014-2015)

I am currently a senior Applied Linguistics major at Portland State University. I have only one class remaining before graduation. Woohoo! I am teaching and tutoring in Portland until the end of next June (2016). Afterwards, I'll be sailing as I make a several year long voyage from the United States to Australia, Asia, the Middle East, the Mediterranean region and up to northern Europe. I plan to teach English abroad as I travel before, perhaps, settling down to attend graduate school in Europe.

BA Applied Linguistics and TESL certificate from Portland State University - Expected December 2015

As a child I excelled in school, attending gifted student programs in elementary, left the 7th grade mid-year to attend high school (9th grade in my region) and left high school after the 10th grade to go to college. During my early education, I struggled with standardization and understand that students think in a variety of ways. The way a student learns isn't always compatible with a teacher's or textbook's approach. Variety and practicality are often much better options for these students.
