About Kimberly

Dear Students and Potential individuals looking for exceptional tutoring,

Marianne Williamson said "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure...we ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

I am completely qualified with a Bachelor's Degree in Physics and Math and advanced degrees in Education and Particle Physics to help any student in Science and Mathematics.

The most precious gift in the world is the ability to shape the future for the better. As a teacher I am granted that privilege everyday and never do I underestimate its power. I treasure the opportunity to challenge each and every student, as individuals, always pushing and accepting only their personal best. Each child can accomplish great things, but we as teachers must see the greatness that resides in them. Once we see it, the idea must be conveyed to the very core of that child in order to make a difference.

As teachers we are assigned a specific content area or specialty. My philosophy is that specific content areas must be related to the real world for my students. Not the world as I see it, but the reality they perceive as children, learning about the world around them. I have been tutoring for over 12 years and have had success K-12 and at the collegiate level. I think what sets me apart is my ability to make the information real and relevant to the individual student.

My students are learning the love and passion for science and math I have, in addition to learning to appreciate what it has to offer them. Logical thinking and reasoning are two skills I aspire all of my students to have.

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.

ACT Math

ACT Math is an area where I feel confident because my college minor was Mathematics and I have done tutoring for ACT for the past 5 years.

ACT Science

I have a Bachelor's degree in Physics and a master's degree in Particle Physics. ACT Science is a strong tutoring subject for me. I have several lessons and study tips for visual learners, auditory learners, and kinesthetic learners.

Algebra 1

Certified to teach Algebra I and II, Geometry, pre-Calculus and Calculus.

Algebra 2

Algebra II is an exciting subject for me to tutor because I minored in math and have over 30 college hours in the subject. I enjoy inequalities and breaking down information to students that I tutor in a way that they can understand and excel.

Biology

I have a Bachelor's degree in Physics and a master's degree in Particle Physics. I have successfully taught Biology, Chemistry, Physics, AP Chemistry and AP Physics. My specialty with tutoring is differentiated instructions, which means I cater to the individual learning style of the student with which I am working. I have several lessons and study tips for visual learners, auditory learners, and kinesthetic learners.

Geometry

I minored in math in college and have over 30 hrs of college math.

GRE

As a college student, I received help and tutoring for the GRE and scored in the 95 percentile on the analytical and math sections. I have since helped several college students prepare using knowledge review and equipping them with test taking strategies.

Physical Science

I have taught Physical Science at the middle school and high school level. As a certified science teacher, I am very capable to help with the content and my attention to individual needs of my students makes me a great tutor.

Physics

I have a Bachelor's degree in Physics and a master's degree in Particle Physics. Physics is one of my favorite subjects and it is what I consider my specialty. I have a way of breaking physics down to students I tutor so that they can better understand and have better mastery.

Prealgebra

I have over 30 hours of college math and enjoy the subject of prealgebra. I have tutored several students successfully by breaking down equations, fractions and inequalities to help them succeed.

SAT Math

SAT Math is one of my specialties and one of my favorite things to tutor. I have a strong math background and an ability to breakdown information to make it seem easy.

Trigonometry

As a certified teacher in math and science, I am very capable of helping with trigonometry.
