Hi There,

My name is Kim and I have been traveling SE Asia for two years now. I lived in Cambodia for 18 months and currently living in Vietnam. When I started the transition out of my business career, I reflected on what made me happy and gave me the most satisfaction and that was always helping people. So this is where teaching English as a second language came in for me. I understand the difficulty of learning a new language and I assure you I am a patient, kind and relaxed person to help you attain your goals.

I have an extensive business background mainly in upper or executive management positions, as well as volunteering as an Educator assistant for over twenty years in US school systems. I simply love helping people attain their personal goals and take great pride in seeing them succeed.

My hobbies include swimming, hiking, traveling and music, all kinds of music. I find music brings me to places whether I am cleaning the house or relaxing on the beach.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
