My name is Kimberly VanderKind, and I am a professional English instructor with 10 years experience working with international English language learners and two years coaching exam preparation.

I have been awarded a Masters of Education from The University of Colorado-Boulder. My work is published in international textbooks, and I developed nationally adopted English language curriculum and testing materials for the Korean public school system. My insights are well-respected in the field of English language acquisition and have been shared at conferences.


The best way to grow your language acquisition is through guided practice. After all, no one can learn a new language in a vacuum. I will use my years of experience to pinpoint what you need to practice, while giving you expert instruction on how to use English on the IELTS exam.
