About Kimberlee T.

Hello, I'm Kimberlee!

I'm thrilled that you're asking about me being your tutor. I'm new to TakeLessons, but not new to tutoring. After all, I've got 25 years of experience, and that's a long time!

About me: I'm a language professional who tutors both English and Spanish. My experience has been international: I've taught in the US, Argentina, and Mexico.

I create your sessions according to what your needs are, instead of boring textbook classes. With time, I can diagnose what challenges you're facing in both English and Spanish.

FYI I'm a mom myself, thus I've acquired patience and am an encouraging tutor. When I teach languages, we often use games and music to learn.

Additional services include Accent Reduction, Language Interpreting, Translation, Editing, and Copywriting. I also teach Reading, Grammar, and Vocabulary. Finally, I'm a published author and can also help you improve your Writing.

I have reached great improvement taking lessons with Mrs. Kimbelee. She supported me every time I needed to get oral and writing english presentations.
I was a regular student in company and I did an intensive course outside the company as well.
Kimberlee has excellent skills to tranfer knowledge and she gave me full training with vocabulary, intonation, phrasal verbs and social english even though I wanted to dealing with technical exchange with english colleages. She helped me to be fluent speaker tailoring the subjects in clases. Thanks Kimberlee !!!

I've known Kimberlee for 15 years and she's an excellent teacher because her interpersonal skills are amazing. She manages to explain difficult concepts with clarity and in a concise way and has a perfect dose of patience for a professional teacher. I would recommend her 1000%!

I've offer both English and Spanish, as I've lived most of my life in the US and a good part of it (over 20 years) in Latin America. I've lived in USA, Argentina, and Mexico and can teach the language dialects from all three. I'm able to create your sessions according to what your needs are, instead of boring textbook classes. With time, I can diagnose what challenges you're facing in both English and Spanish. FYI I'm a mom myself, thus I've acquired patience and am an encouraging tutor.
