Introduction and background:
Hi! Thank you for reading more about me. From friends to family to part-time work at learning centers to a high school math teacher, I have helped a lot of people with math. Each experience has provided me with valuable tools and tricks to use while working with a student. I have worked with elementary kids to adult learners and each person is unique with their own background and abilities. I adjust my style and approach to meet the student's needs.
I strongly believe that students need to master the basics of the lesson and then go from there. If a student didn't retain a skill needed for the current lesson then that is where we would start. Math is one subject that certain skills show up over and over so it is crucial to be constantly spiraling the core skills into the new material. This is tricky because there are so many standards that the state requires; however, it is my specialty to help the students master the foundation skills for each lesson; also, to prepare them for future core skills. I do this by exposing them to it early so they retain it and use it when they need it. Practice and organization are also very important in helping students to be successful in math.
I am mom to a very active 2 year old. I like movies, beach, parks, walking, board games, amusement parks. My hometown is Buffalo, NY. I hold a Master's in applied economics and FL teaching certificate in math 6-12.
I am passionate about tutoring and love what I do. To see a student's abilities and confidence grow is very rewarding. I hope to hear from you and work with you soon. Introduction and background:

My son has seen dramatic improvement in his math skill and overall attention to detail. Kim has been absolutely amazing. I highly recommend her.
My daughter had recently done very poorly on a test that was a large portion of her overall grade because she did not understand the material.
A few days after her first lesson with Kim she scored a 90 on a similar test and the questions she missed were on "proofs", the area she will be going over with Kim next. I am quite sure that with Kim's help this will be an area she fully understands for the next exam.
We saw improvements immediately with the help of Kim. She is wonderful helping our 5th grade boy. She is very patient and knowledgeable, and has a great way of explaining how to work through his math problems.
Kim has been the perfect fit for our son in precalculus. Her teaching style has been right on and made such a difference in his grades. We have used her weekly for most of this school year. She is always on time and very professional. You can tell she enjoys what she does and takes her job seriously. She is an excellent teacher and very relatable! She is a wonderful tutor and person...you won't regret hiring her. She is everything your child will need and more!
Kim is great!! She is straight to the point and has ways to make things easy to understand in the level that a student can grasp so quick. I really like her professionalism and efficiency. She is always on time. My daughter really enjoys her lessons each time and it really helps uplift the spirit and interests. We are so lucky to find Kim!!!
My student had a great first session. Kim is very patient and moves at a very good pace. We are looking forward to more tutoring sessions!
Kim did wonders with our son in just four lessons. She was extremely flexible in her schedule and was very pleasant to work with. Highly recommend Kim.
My son got his confidence back after just a couple of sessions with Kim B. She was on time and more than willing to work around our crazy schedule. She knows her stuff! My son made several positive comments about Kim B. and how he gets the subject matter when she is helping him. When my son comes home from a test and is excited about how well he did well that is just priceless to me. Kim B. is a great tutor!
Kim is not just good at teaching, she is amazing. Boys are tough to teach, difficult to guide and problematic to focus; but Kim cuts through it all and delivers. I give her the highest level of confidence and satisfaction.
Kim has been working with my son for Algebra Honors and Geometry Honors. My son just loves her. She is patient and teaches a concept several different ways until the student understands the material. My son was in 7th grade taking Algebra and with Kim's approach he was able to earn an A. All of my kids will be working with Kim for math!
Kim has tutored my son for the second time and when she is with him he just seems to understand the concept a whole lot more. She is a great instrutor and very patient and explains things in a way that kids can relate and unerstand. I couldn't ask for a better expeience than the one O am having right now with her. I only hope my son keeps trying and accepts all the help and wisdom Kim has to offer!!!
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.
