Hello,

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Kimberly and I have over twenty years of experience teaching. The last eight years I have been teaching American Sign Language (ASL) full-time in high school and have taught it part-time on occasion to adults. Before teaching ASL I taught Elementary School for ten years. During those years I taught grades 1, 2, 3, and 4 - all subjects. Prior to teaching Elementary School I worked in two Montessori preschools and became Montessori certified. As you can see, I have experience teaching a variety of ages, from the very young, to adults. I am certified in Elementary and Primary Education and have an endorsement in American Sign Language. In addition I have a Master's degree in Curriculum with TESOL.

I would be willing to tutor via Skype or another means if desired as well. If you are looking for a tutor in any Elementary subject, in American Sign Language, or to teach English, it would be a pleasure meeting you.

Thank you.
