About Kimberly


Bio

I am a mom of 4. I have helped them since young ages with their difficulties in all subjects. They are now middle schoolers and high schoolers. Before helping my own kids, I had tutored as a volunteer since my high school years. I have worked with students of all ages. My favorite areas are high school and college level math and science, but I have the resources to help middle school and elementary aged children as well.

I am a mom of 4. I have helped them since young ages with their difficulties in all subjects. They are now middle schoolers and high schoolers. Before helping my own kids, I had tutored as a volunteer since my high school years. I have worked with students of all ages. My favorite areas are high school and college level math and science, but I have the resources to help middle school and elementary aged children as well.

I am an educator by profession. I have a Bachelor's in Chemistry, which required classes in various sciences as well as math through differential equations. I worked in industry for 5 years, and then taught middle school science. I am accredited for 6-12 composite science. I am knowledgeable and enjoy all types of science as well as math. I am happy to tutor other subjects as well.

In addition to working through a student's homework, I have access to many resources. My goal is to teach concepts differently than they've been taught elsewhere. Hands-on, silliness, connecting to something the student is interested in are all methods I use to engage the student and help them understand the concepts. I will also expect work from the student. It is their grade and their life. I can only help, but they have to care about their education and be willing to work.

I am passionate about learning, and my goal is to help students learn how to think and process through concepts. My hope is that I can get you to a place where you no longer need a tutor. Let's get started on bringing you or your student's confidence and skills up where you want them to be!

Special Needs

Special Needs

Special Needs

I have 12 years of experience working with my children as well as children in the community with special needs. I have a passion for teaching social skills as well academic, emotional, and physical skills. I am a mom of children with special needs, I have worked as an inclusion aid for children with special needs for 1.5 years and I have volunteered in various areas with kids with special needs for 10 years. I have sat in on several years of social skills therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy sessions and practiced those skills on a daily basis in my own home. I have worked in inclusion preschool settings to assist children with special needs. Many times, I used the same techniques to work with the regular ed preschool students. My strength lies in my patience and persistence in getting children to use their words (and eventually the appropriate words) to express their feelings and desires. I am familiar with PECS, picture communicating system. I use many sensory diet tools(rice bin, squishy balls, snug blankets, weighted blankets). I use movement in all teaching sessions. I generally incorporate specific motor skills into fun activities, the kids work even when they don't know it! I truly love helping children learn. It is a fascinating process.

Very knowledgeable, jumps in quickly

Kimberly was able to jump in quickly with very little information given to her. She was kind and patient with my child and that challenged her to want to try harder. She was very knowledgeable about the subject and showed my child different ways to look at solving the problem.

Great tutor!

Kimberly has been awesome for me! My test score grades have already gone up and she is also very helpful if you have a question during the week when you are not with her. She helps to make you understand and can recognize what you need to work on pretty quickly. I definitely recommend her if you are struggling with math!

Just What My Son Needed

Honors Chemistry, High school. Kimberly helped my son with his lab report/paper. She helped him increase his grade on the paper 25 percentage points! She showed him how to organize his paper and helped him revise his original paper, explaining what was good and what needed editing. Very happy with the results
