Bio

I will never forget my first teaching assignment. I was sent to teach in a private school just outside of Prague after the revolution. It was the most amazing experience of my life. I taught two separate types of classes. One was conversational English for adults and the other was English 1 for beginning students.

I will never forget my first teaching assignment. I was sent to teach in a private school just outside of Prague after the revolution. It was the most amazing experience of my life. I taught two separate types of classes. One was conversational English for adults and the other was English 1 for beginning students.

There was such enjoyment to watch my students as we went through our lessons and see them learn a new language. I love being an ESL teacher because it gives you the tools to provide unique lessons. Unlike being in an ordinary classroom where all you have is a book in front of you and a chalkboard on the wall, ESL encourages you to use your imagination, music, charades, and other means to connect with your students and help them with their memorization and learning patterns. People are always saying that other languages are difficult to learn, but the English language has multiple meanings for the same word. This can confuse anyone.

I became certified as an ESL instructor in San Francisco at TransWorld Teachers. I now help elementary students who need individualized instructions and adults improve their conversational English.

Learn to love English and let me help. I can't say that I am the "Mary Poppins" of ESL, but I try very hard in making my lessons fun and rewarding. Contact me today and let's set up a time to meet.

ESL/ESOL

I have my Bachelor's degree from Idaho State University in Mass Communication. I received my ESL teaching certificate from Transworld Teacher's in San Francisco. One thing that makes me unique and a better teacher is that I have traveled the world. I understand cultural differences and the difficulties you face in communicating with someone in a foreign country. It doesn't matter whether I am engaged in advancing someone's abilities in conversational English or helping someone to begin their journey to learn English, the methods I use are to engage you in a fun and relaxing, but productive manner.

Great Initial Session

We had a 30-minute initial session. I was able to explain Kia my goals with this sessions and she provided me with information on how to achieve that on the following sessions we are planning to have.

Cesar, 3 lessons with Kia

Great tutor!!

Kia knows what I exactly need and want and prepare and organize the lesson very well for me. Kia is very easy to have a conversation with and speaks with very nice clear tone for me to understand and very enthusiastic tutor. -GK

Dylan, 2 lessons with Kia

Small talk

How to start small talk. Short dialogues. Speaking practice. We talked about my and tutor’s family to recognize each other little bit more. We did compare people here and European people.

Supportive and Encouraging

Very easy to talk to! Before my first lesson with Kia, I wondered how should I manage to talk English for 180 minutes a day? And what should we talk about? Will Kia understand my needs? I knew after the first hour that it would not be a problem. The reason for me to take lessons was to practice conversation without being corrected all the time. Kia´s support and encouragement during these 24 hours during 8 days has really given me more confidence. We talked about subjects like from American/European history to Doctors Without Borders and many others. Just like talking to a friend you have known for a long time! I will for sure have lessons with Kia next time I visit Sarasota. Until then I hope to have lessons via skype. Kia, so happy to have you as my tutor and friend.
