About Kim

I am an educator with 22 years of experience. I have taught elementary, middle, and high school students over the years. I have helped students of all ages from age 2 to college get a head start and succeed in many different subjects. I am here to help your child learn from something as simple as abc's to writing college term papers.

I love to see students' faces light up when they grasp a concept that they have been struggling to learn. I think that students learn best in a one on one situation. I think that differentiation is best in teaching because of the different ways students learn. I look forward to helping your student.

As a Math Tutor I have assisted students individually and in small groups and helped them improve their math skills. I will develop plans using tutoring resources, monitor student progress, identify areas needing improvement, help with homework and prepare students for tests. I also use communication, patience, and pay attention to details.

I have delivered classroom lectures to students as per approved curriculum. I have educated students on English reading, writing and speaking and developed lesson plans based on student’s needs and level. I also provided assignments and homework to students while maintaining student progress and attendance records. In addition, I also identified students below grade levels and provided academic guidance.

I am very comfortable and experienced developing rapport and lending support to children of different ethnic, social economic, and cultural backgrounds. I am a creative and excellent communicator with skills toward children and parents. I am deeply committed to high quality education for children. I have extensive experience creating curriculum based on state standards and benchmarks for the goal of increasing student achievement. I have strong writing skills and understanding of the elements of effective writing strategies. I have knowledge of state standards and content strands in reading, math, social studies, health, and science.

I would love to help students achieve in all subject areas. Please contact me at your earliest convenience to schedule tutoring lessons.

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.

Aspergers

I currently work with three students with Aspergers. I am on my third year with one of my student's and I have found that patience and consistency are the key to making sure that he is successful in my class.

Autism

I currently work with several students' who have autism. What I have learned is that each student with autism is very unique and their is no one way of doing things. I have to try several different methods in order to be successful with my students. I am excited to say that I have been able to be a resource for other teachers in dealing with students with autism because of my success.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor in elementary k-6 because I have 22 years of experience in teaching. I have been in elementary schools for 14 years. I have tutored many students in various subjects over the years. I have planned lessons according to curriculum standards for elementary school grades.
