About Kimberley

I have been working professionally as an ESL instructor for the past four years. Prior experience includes work as an instructor of Humanities at the university level, k-8 educator in Media and Technology, and extensive public speaking experience while in the business marketplace as a marketing executive.

As a teen I struggled with boredom in classes that were too easy, and I fell behind. Later, as a University instructor, I came to realize that many of the facts that I taught my students would stay with them only for the time it took to take an exam. Yet the critical thinking skills that I could help them gain over that time, had to potential to change their lives. Too many people accept information without truly understanding its' purpose or origin. I believe that if you understand why a thing is the way it is, or behaves the way it does; you gain insight not only into the subject itself, but into everything it touches or influences. With that insight, you will have a leg up in the next subject/connected issue making it easier to move forward in your education.

My theory has proven correct many times over fifteen years of students in various environments. I've worked with business people, college students and children, and it's held true for them all. I truly believe that how you think, the process of it, is as much a learned skill as calculus or philosophy. I'll do my utmost to help you to process the material in a way that will allow you to move forward, with or without help in the future. My goal is to help you to really know the material, and to feel absolute confidence in your ability to master it.

I definitely have a different perspective on the process, but I assure you I am a traditionalist when it comes to making sure you know your material. While my methods may be a bit different, you'll work hard and learn a lot. I'm looking forward to meeting you, and to helping you achieve your goals. I'll look forward to hearing from you soon, so we can get started.
