About Kimberly

In considering the credentials of a tutor, intelligence and knowledge of content material is foremost. As a High School and College Scholar, I participated in many honors courses. I graduated Magma Cum Laud with a Bachelor's of Arts in Anthropology. I've also earned a 4.0 on all my college work done post graduation as needed for my continuing education and to maintain my teaching certificate.
However, knowledge has to be paired with an ability to teach. I am well skilled in making difficult concepts easy to understand. I'm a natural story teller and "explain-er", and I excel in making difficult concepts easy to understand. I love all aspects of science and really enjoy helping my students develop a love for science as well. I have been given the honor and responsibility of teaching science students for over 15 years. In that capacity I was charged with ensuring an engaging and challenging study of subjects ranging from Life Sciences- such as biology, ecology, anatomy, and heredity; to Physical Sciences- covering electricity, force, motion and machines; and Earth Sciences subjects of earthquakes, volcanoes, weather and astronomy.
I want my students to be challenged and will provide periodic assessments and progress reports. Although I do require 24 hour cancellation notice, I offer students the opportunity to make-up lessons. I look forward to helping you reach and then surpass your learning goals and objectives.

Anthropology

My Degree is in Anthropology. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Memphis.

Archaeology

My undergraduate degree from University of Memphis is in Anthropology, which offers a heavy focus in archaeology. I participated in two separate digs under direct tutelage of college professors to learn the basics of the archaeological process.

Botany

I am well acquainted with the specifics of plant classification and plant reproduction as it relates to my 15 years teaching of life sciences and ecology.

Genetics

During my 15 years teaching Science, my eighth graders were required to pass a State Proficiency Exam of which a primary component was Genetics. My students routinely outperformed their peers in other classes at our school and at other schools in our county.

Sociology

My degree in Anthropology with which I graduated Magna Cum Laude, had a very large sociology component. Including courses such as Intro to Sociology; Culture, Kin and Family; Ascent to Civilization; Racial and Ethnic Minorities; Peoples and Cultures of the World; Sociology of Gender; and Sociology of Religion. In each class I scored an A.

Zoology

During my college career I took zoology and earned a 4.0 in the course. Additionally, I have taught most aspects of classification and zoology during my 15 years teaching science.
