Kimberly ...I am a certified elementary education teacher and received by Bachelor of Arts from SUNY Oneonta. I understand the rigor of standardized test and use the student's prior knowledge as a base to build on. I am extremely patient and my goal is to see my student's strive and become self-confident in their learning experience. I enjoy teaching and tutoring as well as playing with my two young sons on the playground!... I believe learning never ends. I like to instill this idea in my student's understanding of knowledge and learning. I strive every day to make sure learning is not only fun but also purposeful. Student's need to view themselves as a learner first, and then all will fall into place. I believe teaching from the known is very effective. Building on student's knowledge as a base for learning new things allows for self-confidence and the ability to take risks in their learning.
