About Kim

I am a child-centered elementary teacher looking to find a few more students to round out my tutorial schedule. I graduated from UT at Austin in 1988 and obtained my teacher certification the following year. I have 17 years of teaching experience in grades Prek-2nd. I also teach summer school for students who are performing below grade level in grades 2 and 3. I love working with kids and feel it is so important that a tutor take the time to pinpoint what is causing a child difficulty in school. Typically, I will do some type of diagnostic assessment (phonics, math, etc). to try and pinpoint the areas where the most progress can be made. I also believe in parent communication and like for parents to know what their child is working on in tutorials so they can follow up at home. My tutoring sessions are a combination of hands on activities and guided practice. I'd love to meet you and your child and see if we would be a good fit!

Wonderful Teacher — My granddaughter is finally starting to understand adding and subtracting and the meaning of ones, tens and hundreds. I was really worried because she just wasn't getting even single digits and her class was getting ready to start multiplication and division. Kim is patient and my granddaughter will listen to her and learn from her. Kim is a God-send! ...
