About Kia

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

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.

Helpful, kind and patient — My husband had about 18 lessons via Kia and was thrilled. She´s been always on time with a smile on her face and prepared with a new lesson. She modified the subject of lessons to my husband's interests so he was keen on doing his homework and learning new vocabulary. His level of English is between low to intermediate that´s why I´m writing this review instead of him. But he did improve in ...
