About Kim

I graduated from East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. I began as a substitute in various school districts in Somerset County. I then had a year long position as an aide in Manville School District. At that time I began taking classes at Rutgers University and received a certificate for Special Education.

With my Special Education certificate I got a job in Green Brook School District for teaching third grade. In my first year teaching I worked with kindergarten, first grade, third grade, sixth grade, and eighth grade students.

I am currently a middle school Social Studies Special Education teacher. I have a resource room Social Studies class teaching students in sixth through eighth grade. I co-teach inclusion Social Studies in grades seven and eight.

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.

Over the past three years I have been working with students with ADD and ADHD. I work with students in grades 6-8. Each students individualized Education plan explains their ADD or ADHD diagnosis.

Over the summer I was given an opposite to volunteer with a program called Autism on the Seas. I worked with ten students who ranged from mild autism to non-verbal. I communicated with the students via pictures. Students also used their iPads to talk to the volunteers onboard.
