About Kimberley

I have my B.S. in elementary education and an M.Ed. in school counseling. I am currently certified in NH as a teacher, and and am finishing a program to be certified in Special education. I taught 5th grade for 2 years in a MA public school, worked for several years in preschool and have spent the last ten years as a reading tutor in both the public schools and privately. My trainings include certification as a Wilson Language instructor, trainings with Wilson Fundations, Fountas and Pinnell literacy coach and benchmark assessment from Lesley college, Read Naturally fluency assessment and instruction and Dibels for assessment. In math I have used the lower grades materials from Everyday Math.

I have spent my entire career interacting with and teaching children and believe one of my strengths is my ability to put a student at ease and increase their self-esteem through experiencing success with reading. Though I do recognize that reading can be hard work for some students, I try to make the learning interesting and even fun.
