Hi my name is Kim and I would be more than happy to help with any tutoring needs. I lived for three years in Spain and taught English as a second language at a bilingual primary school. I was a private ESL tutor for students from the age of 4 through adults in their 70's (beginner to advanced learners). Before this I taught at a Primary school in Holland and here I taught all subjects from first grade till sixth. (Dutch is my native language)

I love working with students who want to learn a new language or want to improve their skills they already have. I believe in a safe and open learning environment, so students feel safe and confident to practice their skills and learn something new. I have a friendly and open personality with a lot of patience. I know how hard it is to learn a new language as a child but as well as an adult. I have been in that situation several times.

I am not only experienced in teaching English as a second language I can also help you or your child with their difficulties in other foreign languages or other subjects.

I look forward to start working with you soon!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I worked for 5 years as a Elementary teacher and have experience working with children that have add/adhd. I know that with a bit of extra attention and with a lot of structure these kids can work hard and reach their goals like their fellow classmates.

Dutch

I am a native Dutch speaker and I am happy to teach you Dutch from beginner to advanced level.

I taught as an elementary teacher for 5 years before I moved to Denver. I taught several grades during these years and worked in all grades as a substitute teacher.

Elementary Math

I taught math to children from 1st grade till 6th grade.

Elementary Science

I taught as an Elementary teacher for 5 years which involved teaching science to first grade through sixth grade.

I have taught English in Spain at a bilingual school(mainly 4th grade). And I have been teaching private classes as an ESL teacher in many different levels.(ages 3 - 70).

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL for more than 2 years in Spain. I am happy to help you with your English regardless what level or age you have.

I have a TEFL certification, which allowed me to teach in Spain as an ESL teacher at a bilingual school.

Grammar

As an ESL teacher, I focused intensely on the grammar side of the English language.

Needlework

I have been knitting and crocheting for quite some years now and I love it and love to share this art and teach this old craft. I can teach you the basics and help set up projects and guide the needs of the student.

Study Skills

I worked as a elementary teacher for 6 years and have helped many children with organizing their homework and helping them study for their exams.

TOEFL

English is my second language and I have been teaching it for years now. I know how hard it is to struggle with a language to make it your own. I know where the difficulties are and can help you to make them disappear.
