Kimie-Grade School Tutor
Kimie-Grade School Tutor
My name is Kimie. I have an AA in Liberal Arts. I was going to UH Hilo pursuing my Bachelor's degree in Psychology, but recently am taking a break. I am currently working at the YWCA Healthy Start program, which is a non-profit organization that work with children from 0 to 3 years of age.
I am hoping to work as a Child Development Specialist once I obtain my Bachelor degree. I love working with children and helping them to achieve their goals and overcome any obstacles that might be in their way. To tutor children in grade school knowing that I can make a difference early on in their education is one of my career goals. I believe that getting children to succeed early on in grade school will help to keep them motivated and keep them striving to be successful in the future and life.
I have been a Sunday school teacher for kids 2 years of age all the way up to 13. I have helped my own daughter, who is now 15 years old, when she was in grade school and middle school; I'm also currently helping my nephew and niece who are in second grade. I am bilingual in Kosraean (a Micronesian dialect) and English. Last but not the least, I have also helped the Waeakea Elementary school ESL program translated English vocabularies to Kosraean.
I have taken all the basic grade school math up to college level math, like Statistics. I have always loved working with numbers and solving math problems. Math is one of the subjects I always get good grades on.
I speak, read, and write fluently in English, although it's not my first/primary language. Having attended the best Catholic private high school in Micronesia (Xavier High School) prepared me very well for college and I always pass with A's in English.
I love helping students especially from Kindergarten to 6th because that's the age, I believe, is the most crucial in a child's education. I have an AA degree and am working on my bachelor's, so I believe I have the educational knowledge to help kids at that age or educational level.
I understand the fact that we all are different and we have our own pace of learning. I also believe that we all are capable of learning and reaching the highest of our abilities, given the time and effort.I am a patient tutor, but I also like to encourage students to strive for the best of their ability. I like to tutor students and see fast and great results.
