About Kim

I have an extensive background in Spanish and German, including tutoring and working abroad. I'm familiar with both Castillian Spanish and Latin American Spanish language styles, and I believe in the importance of speaking, while having an understanding of grammar and developing vocabulary.

I've worked as a Spanish translator for local Rotary clubs, and teacher German regularly.

Having learned two languages, I've developed a strong foundation in English grammar, vocabulary, writing, and proofreading as a result.

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.

Social Studies

I have taught AP World History for three years, ending with a passing rate that was above the global average of 50%. Additionally, I've taught both Cultural Geography and Honors World History for three years.

My Master's degree is in International Studies from the University of Kentucky (1992)
