    Kimber worked with my daughter who was bumped up a class in Spanish. She has been amazing to work with as a parent of a child receiving her services. My daughter talks about how effective Kimber is in helping her learn exactly what she needs to know for her Spanish class this year.

About this pro

There are many qualities to my teaching that set me apart from others: my enthusiastic and engaging methods, my sense of humor, my ability to turn everything into a learning experience, my stories about my personal experiences throughout the world, and my custom teaching materials - games, songs, and mnemonic techniques. All of these come together to make for a truly enjoyable and memorable learning experience. I love meeting people, getting to know their stories, and helping them attain their dream of language proficiency.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My services have different prices per hour vs. per course. The more hours and the longer the course gives a more beneficial price per hour. Additionally, pricing is more advantageous when a group purchases a class. For pricing, a student must tell me what type of course they want. Finally, clients may earn free class credits when they refer other students/clients who purchase a course.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I specifically design the course for each student. I begin by asking them to tell me their needs so that I may fulfill them. Then, as we work together, I continually refine our lessons according to those needs and any other needs, wants, or interests that they have.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      1. Bachelor and Master of Arts in French. 2. Spanish Diploma earned after a full year of study at the University of Granada, Spain 3. Masters +30 Degree in Teaching English as a second language. 4. Massachusetts certification in teaching English, Spanish, French. 5. Certification in teaching online courses. 6. Teaching for over 25 years. 7. Life training from living abroad for a combined total of 15 years in France, Spain, and Kenya as well as extensive travel in Canada, England, Western Europe and Mexico.
