About Kim

Is getting your son or daughter to do their homework a battle? Does your child's teacher recommend summer school for them? Are you tired of always being the bad guy when it comes to completing school work? If you have answered yes, to any of these questions, then you've come to the right place!

Hire me! My name is Kim S. and I have 17 years' experience working with elementary age students. I have patience, empathy and a sense of humor as well!
I recently worked in a school district for 17 years in the suburban Chicago, IL area as a para-educator. I have experience in both the general education classroom setting, as well as in the special education setting.

I have had my own tutoring business that I ran after school and during the summer months. I love seeing children that have been struggling, feel more confident after some individual help. I understand that sometimes parents and kids can 'butt heads', and a tutor can help be the neutral person.

I have taught a lot of language arts types of classes, that include, reading, and writing and vocabulary. Writing often tends to be the more difficult subject for many children. I have taught guided reading groups and individual reading lessons as well.

I believe I can help your child with some one on one help. I am enthusiastic and patient! I have a very flexible schedule. Call me and we can chat about what your child needs help with. I look forward to speaking with you!! Thanks.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I have over 10 years experience working with children that have been diagnosed by a physician with either ADD or ADHD. I also am the parent of a young man who was diagnosed. I have also taken some seminars in the school district I worked in. I have practical strategies for helping a student focus better on their work.

Special Needs

I have a para-educator license in the state of Illinois, and this was required by the State Board of Education. I have taken many seminars in working with special needs children. My own son had a rather severe processing disorder, along with other issues. I was familiar as a parent and an educator with methods that worked and didn't work. I have great empathy and sympathy in working with these students.
