"Hi, I'm Kerry! I have degrees in Journalism and Spanish Linguistics, experience as a teaching assistant, and a summer as a college readiness camp counselor under my belt! I love tutoring because one-on-one learning means that there is space to dive into each student's interests, questions, and curiosities.

I'm passionate about language, and I'm eager to help students excel in the field - regardless of what that means to them. I want to get to know students and figure out what motivates them, where their strengths are, and how to help them absorb the nuances of their first language or a new one!

A lot of my curricular strengths (and most of my professional strengths) lie within the writing realm. My journalism background has made me a concise, clear writer and a skilled editor, which lend well to helping others refine their skills! I was a journalism teaching assistant in college, and have spent the last two years working in web content operations for a tech company. English is hard, but it can be used to create informative, persuasive, beautiful messages.

My Spanish Linguistics capstone was focused on second language acquisition, and I am fascinated with the process of picking up another language and figuring out how it differs from your native one. Through extended independent travel, I've grown a deep respect and appreciation for Latin American culture and dialectology. I would love the opportunity to help an English-speaking student work on their Spanish skills, or help someone new to the English language navigate its intricacies and cultural variations.

This stuff shouldn't be boring. Can't wait to help others learn something new and have a blast while doing so." less...
