Hello! I am Teacher Yvonne.


Teacher Yvonne BK


About Me

I am the mother of 3 boys. They are 20, 17, and 12.  Our 12-year-old son went to heaven in 2020.  We miss him dearly, more than words can express.  He taught us many lessons and blessed us greatly.   Teaching my students was one thing that kept me going during that difficult time.

 My family lives in the U.S.A., in the state of Missouri.  I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and gardening.  

I have always had a love for learning and teaching.  I work hard to adapt my teaching style to meet the needs of my students.  I am so excited to team up with Blue Sky and continue to do what I love.  

I am currently teaching English [ESL] at Blue Sky.  I also have some specialty classes available. 

I am excited to work with your child at Blue Sky.  Let’s learn together! 

English Class Description

I will teach what Chinese parents know as ESL “levels” 3 to 8 using the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Journeys Curriculum. This is a full language arts curriculum used to teach American students.  We will work through the material at whatever pace the student needs to achieve and demonstrate mastery. These classes are one on one, 25 minute classes. 

There are many enrichment resources available to use before and after class. Enrichment homework will be assigned per the parent’s request. 

I also have access to other ESL materials if parents want a mix of Journeys curriculum and ESL curriculum.  I can also include writing instruction to go with our Journeys classes.    

Connect with me on WeChat or ClassIn if you have any questions about my classes.

Specialty Class Descriptions

This class is for 3-6 students.  A minimum of 3 students need to be enrolled for the class to begin.  These are 50-minute classes with a 5-minute break halfway.  [2-25 minute class times will need to be used.]  These classes will focus on delivery skills and how to organize and write a basic outline.  Students will be encouraged to speak using their outline instead of reading every word from a paper.  We will practice specific speaking skills and listening skills.  Students will have time to practice speaking in every class.  We will practice speeches to inform, entertain, persuade and to demonstrate something.  We will also practice impromptu speeches.  

I will use different sources from experienced public speakers and my experience teaching public speaking at Classical Conversation homeschool groups.  I am passionate about this topic because I would like to teach students skills that I wish I would have learned when I was their age.  These are skills that will help reduce the fear of public speaking and make communication more effective.   

I will announce when this class is ready to begin and the times it will be available.  


This is a one on one, 25 minute class.  We will practice free conversation.  It will be lightly structured with some conversation starters and prompts.  We will practice making good sentences.  Corrections for grammar and sentence structure will be given as needed, while also encouraging the student to freely talk.
