About Kim

I have a BA in English, a masters in Reading, an ESOL certification, and a Master's in Education. My strengths are reading, writing, comprehension, fluency, grammar, and language acquisition.

I taught for nine years at the middle school level working with struggling readers and writers, both as an English teacher and as a reading specialist. While some teachers hesitated at working with struggling readers, these were the students I taught out--it is my niche, and I am good at it!

I work hard to create a warm, safe environment where your child will feel comfortable and unafraid to try their hardest and learn something new. I am also passionate that reading should be fun--not a boring chore to be completed only at school. My tutoring and teaching philosophy is that if a child cannot discover the joys of reading, they will not improve their reading skills--they simply need the right person to help them find their own love for it. Reading skills are only improved through practice, just like any other skill, and if they don't enjoy it, they won't practice it. I do not believe in reading drills, as I think they kill the love of reading, rather than promote the joy that is so necessary to become an avid reader. While working with me, we will work together to improve comprehension and fluency, but also to discover that reading can be fun. With this new level of engagement, your will find your child reading on their own in addition to while working with me, and that is where the true growth lies!

Please contact me if you are interested in learning! I can provide more information about scheduling lessons. I look forward to working with you!
