About Kimberly

Throughout my career, I have been a very successful teacher, counselor, and tutor. I genuinely enjoying working with people--young and old--to help them meet their goals. The teaching relationship involves not only knowing the subject matter, but also the ability to present the material in a way that is enjoyable and understandable. My writing and oral communication skills have helped me have a very satisfying and worthwhile career. These skills are necessary in today's very competitive world, and I have the ability to assist those who need help struggling, especially with English--writing, grammar, punctuation, and reading.

My Master's degree is in Educational Counseling with a college minor in journalism. I have the ability to listen to a student. I want to know why a student is struggling so that we can then attack the subject matter together! And as a former college administrator, I have excellent writing skills.

It is extremely difficult to admit to yourself--or to anyone else--that you have a problem or that you are not doing as well as you should. Once you can admit this, the best plan of action is to reach out to someone who can work with you--as a tutor--to get you through whatever rough patch you are in and work towards all of your goals. You can and will succeed!

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.

Public Speaking

As a former college instructor of English Composition, I taught students in my classes the mechanics of how to write an essay for presentation. Individually and as a class, we would go over what makes a good speech -- a strong introduction, clarity of subject matter, and a memorable conclusion. Then, having written their speeches, each student presented their work to the class with detailed instructions regarding how to keep the "audience" interested. The class would then offer constructive criticism about each presentation.
