About Kim

My life-long passion for teaching reading is still strong. After teaching for many years I searched for additional training to meet the needs of those children who really struggle with reading and spelling even though they are bright. After a year of intense training, I became certified in Orton-Gillingham which is research based instruction for these children. I have been working at a center and tutoring in my home for over five years. My families say it is life-changing instruction. My students quickly learn that they are not "stupid". They realize they can learn with the appropriate instruction.

I am glad to answer any questions you may have. I work to support my families by being as flexible as my schedule allows.

When looking for a tutor for your child, please make sure the tutor has more than the typical teacher training. Even a teacher with a reading endorsement has not received the appropriate training. More of the same type of instruction for your child is not what your child needs. I have a masters in Education but my Orton-Gillingham training has allowed me to meet the needs of many more struggling readers.

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.
