About Kim

I have been teaching for 16 years in Morris County. I have taught second and third grade general education and inclusion. I have a lot of experience teaching phonics and reading skills. I am a patient and kind person and really love my job.
I don't believe in a one size fits all approach to teaching. Not every child learns the same. I tailor my tutoring to meet the child's needs. Some of my favorite programs are Explode the Code, Project Read and Recipe for Reading. Often I use Spectrum Math and Wordly Wise books to help students. I also spend a lot of time finding other materials to meet the needs of every child. I am looking forward to working with your child and watching them grow. Elementary skills in reading need to be strong in order for your child to succeed in school and in life.

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.

ADHD

I have been working with students with ADD and ADHD for the past 10 years in both an Inclusive classroom and through private tutoring. ADD doesn't mean that a child isn't smart or able to learn. It just means that they may need more help to stay focused on their work and extra help to organize themselves. Many ADD students often "miss" skills in their early years of school due to their focus problems. Tutoring in their early years is a great way to help them stay on grade level in school. Children with ADD and ADHD can achieve success with the right help

Dyslexia

I have worked with many dyslexic students over the past 11 years. I am also trained in Project Read, which is an Orton Gillingham based program with a great success rate.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching elementary students for 10 years. Skills learned in elementary school especially the early years are important for the rest of a student's life. Students need to have good reading and math skills in order to build on them in later years. Tutoring is a great way to help a child build a solid foundation for the rest of their education and beyond.

Handwriting

I have been teaching handwriting for over 13 years. I have experience with Handwriting Without Tears and loops and other groups. I also have experience strengthening muscles to improve handwriting and beginning handwriting preschool skills.

Phonics

I am trained in all strands of Project Read. I also use Explode the code and Recipe for Reading to help students improve their reading and phonics skills. I have a great deal of experience and success in this area. Helping students learn to read is my favorite part of teaching. Please contact me to discuss more.

Reading

Reading is my favorite area to teach. Young children often have trouble learning to read. I am trained in Project Read and I often us Recipe for Reading to help beginning readers. Comprehension is also an area of trouble for children. I have a great deal of experience helping children to read! Please contact me to discuss more!

Special Needs

I am a certified teacher of the handicapped. I have been teaching special needs students for the past 11 years. I am a patient teacher with a great deal of experience with special needs students.

Patient and FUN!

When you're dealing with a child that has an issue reading, you want/need a tutor who is going to make the hour fun and interesting. That is what I have found with Kim L. I am so pleased with her and her methods. She is patient where she needs to be and pushes my daughter when she needs to be pushed while never stressing her out. With tutoring, as with most things when dealing with children, the p
