About Kim

With a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and a lifetime teaching certification in the state of Texas, I have had the great opportunity to teach in a variety of teaching situations since 1985. I have taught in public school (first grade and remedial math and reading), private school (second grade and sixth grade), church school (kindergarten through third with special needs students included) and I have had the privilege to teach all four of my children in our home school. Of course, included with the day to day teaching the curriculum was the opportunity to tutor one-on-one with my students when needed.

Tutoring was truly one of my favorite times in the class room! I enjoyed the one-on-one with each student. It was a great time to find out specific ally where they were misunderstanding a subject and to help them get back on track. I loved connecting with them individually. Also, this gave me the opportunity to re-teach the subject with more activities that were fun!

I believe that I am an outstanding reading tutor because I can quickly connect with students so that we can address their reading needs. I am familiar with different techniques and strategies to help the child gain understanding where he/she is lacking. I have had experience teaching hundreds of children through the years how to read. Four of which, I am proud to say, are my own children.

Having experience in teaching all the common core subjects of Reading, Math, Social Studies, and Science, has helped me become an outstanding tutor. I believe if a student gains confidence in reading (phonetically or sight words) he/she will gain comprehensive confidence of any subject.

Teaching Elementary Education is my favorite grade level to teach! I have taught in grades kindergarten to sixth.

I have taught curriculum that requires teaching with phonics. I have many techniques and strategies to teach phonics.

Please contact me if you would like to learn more about how I can help your child achieve better understanding of the subject he is struggling with.

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.
