A dedicated Spanish teacher for over thirteen years, Katie has been pleased and excited to bring her classroom teaching experience to Smarthinking’s virtual world of e-tutoring. Since her first day in October 2011, Katie has enjoyed working with students of all Spanish levels from all over the world, from one-on-one tutoring sessions to asynchronous essay editing. She appreciates the variety the students bring as well as the opportunity to use her education in such an innovative platform. Katie received a double B.A. in Spanish and English from Stetson University and her M.A.Ed. in Adult Education from East Carolina University. She also spent a year abroad living in Madrid, Spain and attending La Complutense, a Spanish university. When not in the physical or virtual classroom, Katie enjoys subversive cross-stitching, hiking with her dog in the mountains of North Carolina, and desperately trying to teach her husband and daughter just a little bit of Spanish!
