Penelope Buchter

Penelope Buchter graduated from American University in 2016 with a BA in international studies, and having spent her study abroad learning Chinese immersion at Peking University, promptly headed back to China with the intention to stay a year or two… now, almost 8 years later, she is still in China, has an MEd in Educational Technology, and enjoys creating opportunities for students to engage with material in meaningful ways.

Penelope is herself a homeschool graduate who understands the challenges and benefits of being a homeschool student. She has also reaped the benefits of distance learning since high school when she took her first Chinese class online. She is passionate about language, speaking both Chinese and Spanish, and is currently working on an MA in English Literature from the University of Nottingham (distance learning at work again!). If you attempt to engage her in a conversation about languages or literature, settle in for a long conversation, and perhaps cancel your next appointment!

In her time abroad, Penelope has worked with British curriculums (IGCSE) and the International Baccalaureate.  It was also in China where Penelope met her now husband, Paul — another English teacher from the UK, and adopted her two dogs. Contact: pbuchter[at]aimacademy.online
