About Kesley C.

I focus mainly in tutoring and managing group study sessions for English learners, whether they are international students or native speakers. I have spent the past five years teaching English, ESL and Creative Writing in various countries. I have a certificate in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and TKT (Teacher Knowledge Test: Young Learners), and am currently working towards acquiring a CBEST (California Basic Educational Skills Test) certification as well.

I like to teach in a fun and comfortable environment. My teaching philosophy is that learning should be exciting, not boring. It is much easier for students to learn a subject if they enjoy studying it. I am a very patient and understanding individual, so no matter the student's level, I always find a way to work the subject matter around their needs.

I look forward to our future classes together!

Kesley is absolutely amazing! She is so patient and creative. My daughter struggled so much with reading. Now she is a confident reader and is near the top of her class in both reading and math. Additionally, my daughter struggled with some behavior problems. Kesley was firm but kind and helped her behave not only during tutoring session, but also in school.

We are also foster parents with kids of all ages coming and going all the time. Kesley has worked with almost all of them and helped them get caught up in school. If there was something higher than 5 stars, I would give it to Kesley. You could not find a better tutor.
