About KC

I specialize in academic, business, and conversational English. Having taught English, reading, and history (state, U.S., and world) in Seattle-area public schools for over a decade gives me the knowledge of what you need to succeed in schools.

All lessons are individually designed for each student. I will tutor you in English, your current classes, and help you with anything you need to be successful. Tutoring with me is never boring! I individually design each session to fit YOUR specific needs. School, conversation, writing, proofreading--together we can do it all and have you successfully reach your goals.

Contact me for help with all of your English needs! Very flexible scheduling, short-term and long-term students welcome.

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.

Hard Of Hearing

I have been using sign language since I was 9 years old. I began studying for my own information, then a deaf kid moved into my neighborhood and we became friends- initiated because I could "speak" her language. Later, at age 12, I became a babysitter for another deaf kid, and since I was the only person outside of his family that could communicate with him so I was his interpreter.

I studied Deaf Education and Sign Language (ASL and SEE) in university. As a middle school teacher, I was the only staff member in my school able to sign, so the only deaf kid in the school was placed in my classroom. Eventually the school hired an interpreter for the student, but the student and her family insisted that I was better than the school's interpreter!

Years later, I had a son who was born deaf. I started taking sign language classes as a refresher, but I tested into interpreter-level on the first day. Not much to refresh!

Thank you for your consideration.
