About Kimba


Bio

Hey kids! I am a third grade teacher and I have been teaching for 20 years. I have also taught 2nd and 4th grade so I know what is expected. I realize sometimes you need a little boost, which is how I got started tutoring. I try to make learning fun, get the work done and give you tools that you can later use. We all have strengths and things we need to work on, so my job is to help find the best way for you to learn. I have experience with the new Common Core Standards and will help you...

Hey kids! I am a third grade teacher and I have been teaching for 20 years. I have also taught 2nd and 4th grade so I know what is expected. I realize sometimes you need a little boost, which is how I got started tutoring. I try to make learning fun, get the work done and give you tools that you can later use. We all have strengths and things we need to work on, so my job is to help find the best way for you to learn. I have experience with the new Common Core Standards and will help you work on a specific goal or a general understanding of a certain topic. I love working with kids both in the classroom or as a tutor. See you soon! :)

I have taught the Common Core standards and given the Smarter Balanced Assessment.

I have 20 years of elementary teaching experience as well as many years of tutoring experience.

I have taught second and third grade so I know what it takes to be a great reader. I have experience with phonics instruction and now how to get kids reading "Just Right" books.

I'd love to work with you and help you strive to be and do your personal best!
