About Kimberleigh

I love to learn and enjoy sharing those "aha!" moments with my students. My high school students often continue to come to me for tutoring and proofreading through college, grad, and med school. I am an accredited high school teacher with 13 years of teaching experience, and I am AP certified.

I have taught English, grammar, composition, American Lit., British Literature, modern literature, World Literature, and AP Literature. As a result of conducting historical analysis on many works of literature, I have a broad depth of knowledge in various areas of history (British, American, world, Ancient) and have done a good deal of tutoring in these areas as well.

I have a Bachelor's degree in English with an emphasis in education and a minor in religion/Biblical studies. I have experience working with foreign exchange students, struggling students, and gifted students. (I am in the process of becoming gifted certified).

I do not believe in busy work and enjoy finding the way you best learn. I take a laid back approach to instructing that will include enough challenge to keep you interested and enough success potential to keep you encouraged. One of the most important things to learn is that you can do hard things! I'll help you break your "hard thing" down into bits that you can successfully manage & teach you this process so that you can take it with you when we are done. One of the side benefits of my tutoring style is the acquisition of effective study skills. I will teach you how to LEARN and not just memorize. This process enabled me to graduate from college in 3 years with a major change in the middle. It will do awesome things for you as well in the classroom and beyond.

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 English

I have been a certified English teacher for 13 years. I have successfully helped students receive high marks on their essays for all 13 years.

Bible Studies

I have a minor in Biblical studies from Lee University. I have also taught Bible at the high school level and to adults. And I have been a writer of daily devotionals for the blog of a world renowned evangelist.

College Counseling

Spent 3 years in the high school setting helping students prepare and apply for college. Aided them in applying for scholarships, with the FAFSA, finding a good college match, and then to become a viable candidate to their college of choice. Many of them returned to me throughout their college careers for help with best scheduling practices.

I have served for 1 year as an Independent Academic Consultant helping high school and college students.

Homeschool

I have homeschooled for 5 years and have been on the advising board for a large homeschooling co-op as the high school director.

Study Skills

During my 13 years as a teacher, one of the skills I incorporated in my class was study skills. I included the psychology behind various skills and aided students in finding the approach that best worked for them.
