Hello! My name is Carolyn Kammer and I am excited to begin the learning process with you/your student! I graduated from DePaul University in 2017 with a double major in Spanish and Psychology, and continued to learn Spanish while acting as an English language teacher on a Fulbright Grant in Guatemala. Post-grant, I further extended my international experience on my 3 month backpacking trip to South America, where I visited seven different countries! It was an amazing experience in which I had the opportunity to further learn about the Spanish language and the many cultures and dialects of the continent.
As you can tell, I am incredibly passionate about Spanish, and about fostering an interest and love of the Spanish language. I tend to prefer interactive activities, games, and conversation as a way to truly engage with and apply the language. Plus, it is just more fun!
I also love creative writing and writing in general. I am a poet and song-writer, but also love connecting data/information and analyzing texts to create a cohesive argumentative essay. I have extensive experience writing a variety of scholarship/college essays and academic essays from my time in university and beyond. I have also done ACT prep previously.
Finally, I have worked with all ages from age 3 to age 25 (and some adult as well) on tutoring/academics. I find that each age and stage has something unique to offer, and its own unique challenges.
I look forward to learning more about your/your student's needs, and collaborating to provide the best support possible!
