Bio

My name is Kim Pistilli and I am a Middle School teacher in California. I am so excited to teach Spanish! I have taught Newcomers, English, Spanish and Social Studies. Most of my experience is in Middle School.
In my current job, I only teach English and Social Studies and I sincerely miss teaching Spanish. It is so important to learn new languages and participate in the global society.

My name is Kim Pistilli and I am a Middle School teacher in California. I am so excited to teach Spanish! I have taught Newcomers, English, Spanish and Social Studies. Most of my experience is in Middle School.
In my current job, I only teach English and Social Studies and I sincerely miss teaching Spanish. It is so important to learn new languages and participate in the global society.

I studied in Madrid, but learned most of my Spanish in University and during research I did in Mexico. I visit with my friends in Mexico every year.
I have taught Newcomers who have arrived to the US within the last 3 years
I spent the last 4 years of my career working at a Dual Immersion Spanish/English school where I taught Spanish Language Arts, Social Studies and Science (for 1 year) in Spanish. This required me to create lessons for language acquisition and growth as well as vocabulary development, informational and literature comprehension and structured essay writing in Spanish.

I am really missing working in Spanish and encouraging others (especially within the Southwest US) to grow their own Spanish. I think it's so important to keep it up, especially after seeing how much I've been able to grow over the years. Practice and immersion are key! Input and output in the language as often as possible are crucial! Depending on a student’s level, I would try to speak to them only in Spanish and we could analyze a book together or practicing listening to conversations and checking comprehension or breaking down writing techniques and sentence structure.
It would be an honor and privilege to work with anyone who is interested in improving their Spanish skills or beginning the journey. Nos vemos!

Tutor that makes Spanish fun and interesting!

Kim takes the time to find interesting content like videos and games in addition to tried and true worksheets. My son has taken 4 lessons with Kim and his Spanish has improved greatly. We just signed up for more lessons.
