"Artist, Web Designer, and Digital Media Guru"

Kimâ€™s years of experience are evident when teaching my child. She shows a great deal of interest and patience and clearly enjoys her profession. In a short time she has taken a very discouraged little boy who didn't want to pick up a book into an encouraged and confident child who is excited to read.

"Kim B. in Cleveland, TN and Dalton, GA Math/Reading Tutor"
It is truly a joy to work with elementary aged children. They are open to learning and extremely honest. These attributes give me the opportunity to help them to reach their highest potential.

When working with children, it is extremely important to understand and acknowledge their unique learning styles. After this is obtained, I utilize this knowledge to teach according to how the children learn.
Another important aspect of teaching elementary stud ... More
