About Kimberly

"The quality of one's education can be closely correlated to one's quality of life." Hello. My name is Kim and I love education! I believe it enhances life, provides a basis for gainful employment and serve as a gateway to priceless life experiences. When my children were young, I would only half jokingly say to friends that education was not the top priority in our house--it was the only priority in our house. Both of my children have benefited immensely as a result of my relentless pursuit of a quality education for them. My son is a National Merit Scholar Semi-Finalist and my daughter is a student at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy.

I have spent the last seventeen years volunteering at schools, tutoring math and working with grade school level children. There is nothing better than seeing the world open up to children as they gain confidence by mastering a particular skill and develop the inner motivation needed to continue to the path to higher learning. Sometimes children need a helping hand to develop a baseline of knowledge necessary to become successful at school. All children can learn. I believe in meeting them at their current level and taking the steps to help them improve progressively to meet their goals.

I served as a tutor at Mathnasium of Plainfield for a year and gained a wealth of experience in creating a fun and interactive environment to motivate and interest grade school aged children.

Reading is the fundamental building block of all learning and can open the door to fantastic worlds of people, places and things found in books! Nothing ignites the imagination more than reading an exciting book about mystical people from faraway lands. Demonstrating the fun side of reading helps tremendously in helping children develop a life long love of learning.

I currently serve as a Regional Coordinator for the You Be The Chemist Challenge which is a science based program for students in grades 5 through 8. My participation in the program has ranged from preparing students for the contest, to judging and now coordinating the program. I also have a degree in Chemical Engineering.

I help children develop a love of learning. Positive interactions through games and fun activities that are education based go a long way toward helping children generate an inner motivation that can propel their success. Motivation is the key. I can help your child find the motivation and confidence to want to learn.
