About Kimberly

Educator with over 20 years' experience as a Learning Specialist, Special Education Teacher, and Disability Services Director. I have developed many techniques for leading learners to successful outcomes in all subject areas using individualized learning strategies and methods for boosting confidence. I can provide assistance in all subject areas, having worked with students in all grade levels and the college setting. I am knowledgeable about learning disabilities, attention disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and positive behavioral modification. I love working with families to improve family relationships around school and learning issues.

I have certification in Middle Grades Math and advanced training in math interventions for student with learning disabilities in math or math difficulty (MD). I know about great ways of making abstract math concepts concrete and understandable with manipulatives and pictorial representations and ways to interpret the "language of math."

I love reading and writing, am a certified Wilson Language Program instructor, and can remediate difficulty with phonemic awareness, decoding, fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. I have taught adapted high school World Literature, led guided reading groups, and use multi-media sources to encourage reading and comprehension of complex texts.

I am very enthusiastic about learning and have studied motivation and success. I believe students' self-concept and beliefs about themselves affect learning outcomes. I would love the chance to work with more students to help them achieve their goals!
