Meet Our Thanksgiving Camp Counselors & Tutors

When boarding school dorms are closed for the holidays, Colibri Boston offers camps in downtown Boston for international students. This year, our Thanksgiving break camp counselors are a diverse and energetic group.


Sasinat (Patty) Chindapol

Education: Harvard College ’19

Hometown: Bangkok, Thailand

Languages Spoken: English, Thai, Mandarin Chinese

Favorite Foods: Anything sweet

Fun Fact: I scuba dive!

Currently in her first year at Harvard University, Patty is originally from Bangkok, Thailand. She has experience tutoring teenage students in math, science, and foreign languages. In high school she served as Assistant Coach for the Junior Swimming Team, and volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and the Thai Red Cross.


Woody Butler

Education: Tufts University ’16

Hometown: Seattle, Washington

Languages Spoken: English, Spanish, C++, Python, Java

Favorite Foods: Mom’s Pizza Bagels

Fun Fact: Legal name is Forrest, not Woody. Woody’s just been a nickname since birth. Also I studied abroad in Hong Kong!

Woody is a Computer Science major and active brother of the Beta Mu chapter of Delta Tau Delta fraternity at Tufts University. This Spring he participated in a study abroad semester in Hong Kong, where he learned a few words in Cantonese. He’s also modeled for the LUX Chinacare Fashion Show which helps fund life-changing surgeries for orphans in China.

Among our group of counselors this year, we also have a Boston native and former student at University of Toronto, and a Ukrainian- U.S. permanent resident with an American MBA and extensive experience working with international students.


Our camp is generally laid-back, allowing students to rest. But for high-achieving students, we can schedule you to meet with one of our professional Ivy League tutors. Please note tutoring is not automatically included, and comes at an additional cost.
