Meet Karl

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi, My name is Karl, and I am a recent graduate of Humboldt State University with a BA in philosophy and psychology. I love learning and the world of academics. I graduated from Humboldt with a GPA of 3.45, being on the Dean's list three semesters. I plan on applying to PhD programs in philosophy in the coming years, with the aim of becoming a philosophy professor. Academics aside, I have always loved teaching and loved working with kids! I find that both my love for kids and my love for teaching work together to make me into a sitter who will not only be observant and attentive to kids' needs, but a sitter that will look for times when an important lesson can be learned and find a way to involve the kid in that lesson. I have spent many summers working with kids as a swim instructor and Read more a camp counselor. As a swim instructor (both publicly and privately) I taught children ages 3-7 basic water safety and comfort, along with swimming fundamentals. As a camp counselor I lead a group of roughly 15 children, ages 5-9 through many different lessons and activities. I am also quite competent in working around a house, especially with cooking (and would love to motivate a kid to help cook). Children find me approachable, encouraging, and supportive, allowing for a fun and collaborative learning relationship.
