About Kim

I love my students!

As a certified secondary math teacher, I enjoy finding fun and clever ways to explain math concepts to elementary, middle and high school students. This year has brought overwhelming changes to the math curriculum requiring students to learn more advanced material. My students know that I care and that I will help them through the tough spots. My favorite thing to hear is when they tell me, "Look at what I did!".

I focus on tutoring math and science. I also help you prepare for the relevant portions of the ACT, SAT, and GRE. I take a planned approach to each lesson working toward the long-term goal, success in the classroom or on your test.

My undergraduate degree is from University of Houston: Clear Lake with 21 hours of math classes and I have a master's degree from Sam Houston State University with specialized coursework in special education and school psychology. I have worked with students with learning differences, AD/HD, and autism/Aspergers treating each one individually. The student and I develop a method that works for them. I bring a "can do" attitude to the tutoring session even if they have not experienced confidence in the past.

I offer a free phone consultation to discuss the learning needs and style of the student and develop a plan. Committed to great customer service, I ask for feedback from every student and I will not charge for a lesson if not completely satisfied.

I have a flexible scheduling policy and can meet students after school during the week, Saturday mornings, and Sunday afternoons. I am also available during the day to homeschooling students. Even though I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, I am willing to offer a makeup time.

I have a tutoring office to maintain a quiet environment that supports successful learning. I'm also available to come to another location if that suits the student.

Call or e-mail to schedule your free consultation so that we can develop a plan of success!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I use a structured review with weekly feedback in preparation for the ACT (and the SAT) that allows the student to capitalize on their strong points and give extra attention to those areas that need it.

ADD/ADHD

I am a licensed professional counselor intern with specific coursework in special education and school psychology, which allows me to alter lessons and implement accommodations for AD/HD. As a teacher, tutor, and paraprofessional, I educate and support students with AD/HD helping them select and use strategies to increase their academic performance. I coach students in how to setup and maintain a study area that is free of distractions.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 to eighth and ninth grade students as a former teacher. I have also tutored Algebra 1 full time for two years. I am certified as a secondary math teacher for grades 7 through 12.

Algebra 2

I have worked with students as an in-class instructor for two classrooms of college algebra and algebra 2 students at a high school. I work to help students practice a wide range of problems to tie their new learning back to their prior learning in Algebra 1.

Aspergers

I have worked with students with Aspergers for two years as an in-class support instructor and a special education learning lab teaching assistant. I also have a master's degree in clinical psychology with special education coursework. I currently have clients with Aspergers as a licensed professional counseling intern.

Autism

I have worked for two years as a private instructor for students with autism and I also have one year as a charter school teaching assistant for students with autism. I have several courses in instructional methods for students with autism in my coursework for my master's degree in psychology.

Chemistry

I have tutored chemistry for several classes at Langham Creek High School for two teachers in 2011-2012 and I've also been tutoring students this summer in Houston ISD at Scarborough High School. I studied chemical engineering at Texas A&M for two years as well.

College Counseling

I have a master's degree in clinical psychology with specialized coursework in career counseling. I work as a licensed professional counselor intern helping students plan their education. I also coach and mentor secondary students on their college applications, essay writing, SAT preparation, and building work portfolios to meet entrance requirements.

Dyslexia

I have supported students with reading difficulties in the classroom as well as in a learning lab. I have consulted with dyslexia teachers to increase the reading level of my students during their 8th grad school year. With special education coursework, I also understand the impact of dyslexia in courses like Algebra and Algebra 2 and use interventions to help overcome problems interpreting equations.

General Computer

My undergraduate degree is in computer information systems and I have worked for fifteen years as an information technology professional. I studied programming as well as how to use information technology in business, finance, and industry. I am also a Microsoft Certified Information Technology professional.

I have taught teen and adult students in computer classes from introductory to very technical.

Prealgebra

I have been tutoring pre-algebra and algebra 1 full time for the past three years at Premier High School, Cy-Fair ISD, and Houston ISD. I would love the opportunity to help you become successful this next year.

Psychology

I have a master's degree in clinical psychology. I have worked with undergraduate students tutoring psychology including running test review sessions for students. I worked two years as a teaching assistant for psychology professors as well as lecturing in several psychology classes.

Religion

I have a masters degree from seminary in theological studies including classes in Christianity and Islam. I have also taught classes on religious studies for community centers and tutored graduate students in theological studies.

Special Needs

I am a licensed professional counseling intern with specific coursework in special education and school psychology. I have worked several years as an educator directly supporting students with special needs such as AD/HD, autism, and Aspergers in the secondary classroom.

STAAR

I am a certified secondary math (7-12) teacher that works with students who prepare for Texas standardized exams such as the STAAR Algebra 1 EOC, Geometry EOC, and Algebra 2 EOC in May each year. I also work with middle school and elementary school students as they review for their upcoming STAAR exams in April.

TAKS

I am a certified secondary math (7-12) teacher that works with students who prepare for Texas standardized exams such as the Exit level TAKS and the STAAR Algebra 1 EOC, Geometry EOC, and Algebra 2 EOC.

I worked with students who were in an alternative graduation program prepare for the exit level Math TAKS exam this past summer.
