About Katie

I am a returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Paraguay 2011-2013) with a minor degree in Spanish and years of experience working with children and teens.

In Paraguay, I taught dynamic and engaging English and Spanish lessons to children ages 4 to 16 on topics ranging from phonetics and reading comprehension to health and nutrition. Additionally, I presented workshops in Spanish to educators on classroom management and reading skills. At the end of service I scored an Advanced-High on the Peace Corps Language Proficiency Exam. During my junior spring semester at Penn State University, I studied abroad in Seville, Spain. There I lived with a host family and took a full semester of classes in Spanish.

My experience with kids comes from working at a summer camp for many years with boys and girls from 1st to 9th grade

I also have experience and training in adult literacy tutoring.

I would be happy to discuss with parents and students their goals and expectations and create a lesson plan that addresses those needs.
