Kim is a great listener.  She’s also are very perceptive, and she sees things about me that I don’t even know about myself yet. She defines what I’m feeling and what I need to do in a way that I can take action on.

Kim is also really good at creating focus so I can make action steps. Instead of just talking about an idea we say, “Here’s what we’re going to do with it. Here’s something that we can work on.”

Working with Kim has given me so many tangible results. I feel like I’m getting clearer and clearer on what I want to do next. A result that I didn’t even anticipate is that I now have a 2 year plan and a 5 year plan…and a 10 and 20 year plan! And I know that those will change and evolve, but I’m really happy with the potential path that’s laid out right now. Kim is great at helping me be more me. And I love it.

I met Kim Carroll 9 years ago when I moved from Bogotá, Colombia to Greenville, South Carolina. As an independent artist and business entrepreneur, my need to communicate efficiently is now my most important tool and yet, my everyday struggle.


Fortunately, Kim's services have been a key to accomplishing my success in the Arts field especially, because Kim always pays extra attention to my needs and improves my initial ideas. She is really helpful suggesting multiple possibilities on how my projects can be approached.

In addition to her high quality work, Kim’s organizational skills, reliability, and sensitivity are characteristics that complement her and make the experience of working with her 100% enjoyable and worthwhile. I have an immense respect for her as a capable and knowledgeable professional, an immeasurable gratitude for her generous willingness to work with me at my convenient times, and a complete confidence in her seriousness, discretion, and nonjudgmental humanity.

From all these years of experience working with her on grants and scholarship applications, reports, business plans, website content, social media marketing, and preparation for large audience lectures, Kim has helped me focus toward my goals. As a full time artist, I have trusted Kim Carroll’s coaching expertise to advise me on strategies to expand my career and I am absolutely happy with the results."

What's it like to work with Kim?

Here's what past clients have to say...

“This class, and the requirements for graduation has been tough, and I’m glad for it. It has pushed me in a lot of ways, and molded me into someone who is not afraid to speak to a group of people now. In some ways, I have matured more. but it was a great stretching, pushing and shoving that I went thru. And I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

Thank you Kim for what you have done, not only in my life, but also for what you are doing in the lives of other people. I know you don’t get the thanks you deserve, but let me say thanks on behalf of them, and for myself too. Keep up the great work. I hope you have students teaching in every country.”

John Lehr, English for Life TESOL program graduate

I believe you all have so many resources…especially yourselves (!)…that our international students…and our entire community…could benefit from.  Thanks so much for your time investment and high quality of services..and your genuine commitment to our students!

Honestly, while (the student) was willing to work very hard to make this semester as academically successful as possible, you and the English for Life Team deserve a great deal of credit for your expertise and professionalism. We are fortunate to have you all in our increasingly diverse community.  You went way above and beyond to do the job right.  I certainly look forward to working with you in the future!”

As I reflect on the experience as a whole; the course work, lectures, practicum, and the instructors (which I have grown so fond of); the amount of knowledge I have gained in this very short three month period from your program is truly invaluable! This experience has made me so very aware of who I am as an educator and who I aspire to be in the ESL classroom. The tools you all have given me have greatly prepared me for the challenges ahead...Thank you all so very much for sharing with me your expertise and accomplishments. I will never forget this journey and I will encourage others who have the passion to “take the voyage” with you at English for Life.

“You are not only a great teacher and teacher trainer but you’re a natural at creating a positive, communicative atmosphere for teachers. We all benefit!”

Joanna Brassert, ESOL teacher, workshop participant

“Kim had a sense of humor, and she responded to our questions without getting upset. She honored our perspectives and allowed us to practice.”

Etta Greene Carter, Adult Education director, training participant

“Kim was a great instructor; she was able to teach while keeping things relevant and fun. I would recommend her to anyone.”

Inna Porter, Adult Education Director, training participant

I just want to take a moment to say thanks to you and English for life for the excellent training that was provided to our Queretaro office. I have only heard great comments from the Queretaro teams and our training manager about the training. Our management team can already see the communication gap closing between our customers and the CSR’s.”
