About Kimberly

I am a middle school English teacher with a Master's degree in Elementary Education and an undergraduate degree in English. I have been teaching full time for six years, but have been teaching from Pre-K all the way through college on and off for the past 10. Although English (reading and writing) are my passions, I love to teach math and study skills as well. I have a great rapport with my students, and we have a great time learning to think "outside the box" so that everyone can achieve their educational goals while staying true to their own learning style.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a master's in elementary education and a K-6 PA certification which enables me to teach all subjects in the K-6 general education curriculum. My focus is the core standards which are adopted by many of the area public schools.

English

I have a Bachelor's of Arts in English from the University of Delaware with a concentration in Business and Technical Writing. In addition, I hold a Master's Degree in Elementary Education and am certified in the State of PA.

I have been teaching Language Arts for 6 years at a private school, and have a deep understanding of the Pennsylvania Standards and curriculum.

I have a strong understanding of literature and literary elements, and am able to assist students with deepening their understanding of both short stories and novels. In addition, I have extensive grammar knowledge, and a thorough knowledge of effective writing strategies for students ranging from K-12.

Phonics

I am certified in PA as a K-6 teacher which includes the area of phonics as a segment of reading and writing. Specifically, I am prepared to use letter and sound recognition, blends and word endings to create a focus for curriculum. I use a variety of traditional methods (books/workbooks) but I also use manipulatives and technology to help support the overall exposure to the phonics theory. I have a master's degree in elementary education and have taught most grades including middle school.

Public Speaking

I teach middle school English which requies that 25% of the grading scale be dedicated to oral speaking and listening. As a result, I have a multitude of public speaking lessons, and some creative ways to have students become more comfortable with speaking in small and large groups. Further, I taught a public speaking class at Wilmington College and received positive feedback regarding the class structure and assessment process.

Study Skills

Over the past ten years, I have worked with numerous students in the area of study skills, and have been able to effectively offer concrete steps to improving this skill. Along with preparing for tests, I use study skills as an opportunity to teach good organizational habits which help promote good study habits as well as the timely completion of written tasks. I have tutored students in this area for over five years, and I work daily as a Middle School teacher to offer similar strategies to my own students.
