About Kim

If you are looking for high quality, enthusiastic instruction and support, then look no further!

I have six years experience tutoring SAT and ACT. Over the years, I have developed my own programs, where I provide students a vast array of materials and instruction on how to improve scores based on skill development, timing, and test taking strategies based specifically on the SAT and ACT.

Additionally, I have developed a program to support students in preparing their college essays and applications, a daunting task best completed during the summer before the student's senior year.

For the past 3 years, I have taught US History and Economics at Penfield High School, where I am now tenured. Thus, I am also high trained in tutoring students for both the US History and Global History and Geography Regents exams.

During the summer and school year, I am available to provide highly quality SAT and ACT instruction(Reading and Writing)and College Essay preparation, as well as US History, Global History, and AP US History. Please contact me with any questions.I look forward to working with you!

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.

American History

I have my masters in American History from the University of Rochester and I teach US History and Government (Regents) at Penfield High School---so its safe to say a I am American History NERD! I am prepared to assist any students in US History, whether it be middle school, Regents, or AP!

College Counseling

I have created a comprehensive program for writing impeccable college essays. As a high school teacher, I have been supporting students in writing their college admission essays for many years by helping students brainstorm, outline, edit, and proof their essays. The program I offer students I tutor involves all 4 of these steps in the writing process.


GREs can be a daunting exam--just when you thought you'd never have to take the SATs again, here's another standardized test! I have plenty of experience working with students preparing for the GRE, particularly in the verbal and grammar sections, though I am also qualified and willing to assist in the math as well.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft PowerPoint is the cornerstone of the modern high school teacher. As a result, I have become an expert on the program, as I use it almost every day. I can help you create a dynamic, clear, and visually interesting presentation on any topic.


As my mom always said, "There's no such thing as good writing, only good re-writing!"

If you want help with research papers, projects, position papers, and college essays, I will assist in editing and restructuring until YOU feel its the best it can be!

SAT Reading

Looking for a Verbal and Writing SAT Teacher--I'm your tutor! I have 5 years experience in both teaching SAT classes and training SAT teachers. I am also a NYS certified teacher and teach at Penfield High School. I can offer a wealth of resources in vocabulary, as well as strategies for reading, sentence completion, and writing section questions! Additionally, as the student will only work so hard as he/she is motivated, I seek to make studying and preparing for the SATs as painless as possible, and can be counted on for a few nerdy jokes.

SAT Writing

The SAT Writing section can be challenging, especially due to the wide variety of questions proffered to students. I am an experienced SAT Writing instructor, who can offer strategies and instruction for questions concerning grammatical errors, paragraph structure, and essay writing.

Social Studies

Middle and High School social studies rests on basic skills of reading, writing, and analysis, particularly cause and effect. Moreover, skills such as map reading, deciphering primary source documents and political cartoons, as well as chart analysis are at the core of this subject. I am certified to assist students of all levels in developing these skills.


Writing can be a challenging and daunting task for many students. Learning and using the writing process of planning, drafting, editing, and revising can help students manage writing anxiety and become successful writers. I am trained and practiced in both instructing and assisting in the writing process.
