Hakkımda

My name is Kiersten. I am an elementary school teacher in Boise, Idaho. My degree is in Elementary Education with an English as a Second Language Endorsement. I have been teaching English for over five years. I have worked with students who ranged from new to English to near native fluency. My work as an elementary school teacher has given me experience in teaching speaking, reading, writing, and grammar to all language levels.

The areas I specialize in are:
- English for academic purposes (essays, research, content specific vocabulary)
- Everyday conversation (including slang and idioms)
- Basic and advanced grammar
- Improved pronunciation
- Expressing ideas in speaking and writing

I have a fun and relaxed teaching style and I will work hard to help my students grow. I am ready to work with you to meet your English goals!
