About Kim

I have taught middle school English and almost all levels of middle school and high school Spanish at some time for the last 25 years. And even though I have been in the classroom more than half of my life, I still enjoy helping students reach their potential. I believe that a student doesn't have to be the "best student." but I believe that all students can reach their best when taught with techniques that fit their individual needs and with lots of encouragement. Many of my students enter class feeling that they "can't" learn Spanish, but most leave with the confidence and skills to take their learning to the next level. Because I am not a native speaker of Spanish I understand how daunting learning a new language can be. Many of my students choose to study Spanish in college or use their language on mission trips. I think learning should be fun and I plan lessons based upon student interest. Studying English was my first love and I still enjoy sharing that love with students. I think of grammar like a puzzle and that most people can become better masters of English once they learn how the pieces fit together. Literature to me is art in words, heavily influenced by the history of the time in which it was written and by the life of the author who committed the story to paper.
I look forward to helping you or your student reach his or her potential. I am happy to discuss your needs and am confident that we can work up a game plan for academic success. I will be available to tutor on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

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.

Spanish

I have taught AP Spanish Language for 15 years to both heritage Spanish speakers and second language learners. I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a double major of English and Spanish and I attended the University of Salamanca in Spain one summer while in college.

Writing

I have a BA in English and write short stories recreationally. I taught English many years ago and now teach AP Spanish. I have published more than 50 online articles and have helped a university student at Southwestern University prepare papers for class. I have also edited graduate-level papers for family members.
