I’m a very strong believer that EVERYONE is capable of earning “A” grades, we only differ in the amount of effort and motivation needed to excel at that level!

I first began tutoring my classmates as an undergraduate chemistry major. Following completion of my second MS degree and throughout my career as a scientist, I worked in both paid and volunteer tutoring positions. Today, as I complete doctoral-level studies in health informatics, I continue to enjoy working with students at all educational levels!

At the undergraduate level, I work with students majoring in premed, biological sciences, chemistry, pre-nursing, and pre-engineering. I also tutor professional students studying medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and other allied health professional students like physicians assistant students. Having excelled in standardized exams such as the subject tests for the GRE and the MCAT, I also maintain expertise in standardized test preparation including exams required for entrance into medical school (MCAT), pharmacy school (PCAT), and nursing school (HESI, TEAS).

Unique to my style of tutoring middle and high school students is the fact that I use college level texts and information for our lessons. I do this to both expose these students to work at higher levels and to motivate them to succeed in ways they never imagined! As a result, my track record for helping my students improve and succeed is remarkable with all of my current students being “A” students! This is a testimony to both to the student's willingness to work very hard and my ability to motivate and support them in their success!

So, if you’re ready and willing to work hard in the sciences and need to develop that extra edge to excel, then I’m the tutor for you!

Gave Me Confidence! Working through problems wasn't the only thing that Kimberly helped me with. She gave me the confidence I needed to do better in my Chemistry class. She is very helpful and easy to reach by phone. There was a point where I thought I had lost all hope with Chemistry, but Kimberly gave me the confidence and persistence I needed to keep going. With her help, my test grades went up from a 69 to an 89. ...
