Hello! My name is Esther Kim and I am originally from New York. Now, I reside in Maryland and I have great pride in teaching English! As a former graduate student with an English and special education degree, I believe that I can help all types of students find joy in learning English like I have. As a Korean-American student, I remember it was hard to master both Korean and English. It was tough, but I remember I had fantastic teachers throughout my childhood that put their time and effort in teaching me. Thus with my experience, I can help students overcome their fears and weakness and help them appreciate learning by providing my time and effort as my previous teachers have done for me.
Not only am I an experienced classroom teacher, but I have also tutored students of all ages for 7 years. I also have an Advanced Professional Certification for the State of Maryland and New York. From elementary students to adults, I have helped students improve their communication and academic skills, and helped an adult learner pass her Nursing Certification Exam. In addition, I have attained the highest English Test passing rate throughout the entire school during my three years of employment in one of New York City’s finest charter schools. Therefore, I am confident that students will be able to achieve their learning goals with me because of my bilingual heritage and exceptional teaching skills, fluency, and knowledge. I also believe that my energetic persona can contribute to help learning be engaging and effective.
As I have positively impacted my former students’ learning, I can help people apply and connect their learning concepts. One of my strengths is that I am passionate about the value of teaching and serving. I cannot wait to share the joy of learning to you all, and hope to meet you soon!

Mrs. Kim was so elaborate in her teaching plan for my son. She was thorough and concise and made sure my sons learning objective was met. She is so informative when it came to some concerns regarding my sons potential language delay and assured me that she would be there every step. Highly recommend this phenomenal teacher.Show More
