My desire to tutor evolved out of a strong desire to help students succeed in math and science. I use my knowledge of these subjects, combined with my teaching and research skills to help students achieve and then exceed their goals. At SUNY Cortland, I excelled in the biological sciences and went on to earn my Ph.D. in Plant Physiology from SUNY ESF. I continued in the scientific field as a research scientist working with scientists from SUNY ESF and Cornell University and I have taught a...

Kim helped our son prepare for the Earth Science Regents. He has always done very well on tests and quizzes but only did ok on exams. When he first started meeting with Kim, he was averaging in the low 80s on the practice exams. He said he really enjoyed working with her. Kim helped him to completely understand the underlying concepts. As a result, he got a 95% on his Regents Exam. His score was directly attributable to his work with Kim. Outstanding work!

Kim is a great tutor who has been able to help both of my children with SAT prep and HS Chemistry. She is very positive and encouraging and relates extremely well with the students. I highly recommend her.
- Kevin T. from Cortland, NY
Kim has taught me how to relate concepts as we went through my genetics course. She explained every detail and help explain why something happens. Not only does she review my lecture notes before our lesson, she would answer any questions like homework whenever I needed them. She is a very fast responder and she is a very patient tutor. I highly recommend her as a tutor. I hope to continue with her as I go on to other courses like biochemistry.
- Nancy N. from Costa Mesa, CA
My 15-year-old daughter very much appreciated Kim?s assistance with chemistry. Very patient and able to break down tough concepts into workable portions. Her assistance was much appreciated and we look forward to future sessions!
- Jennifer V. from Carmel, CA
Kim is a highly capable tutor in science. In addition to helping my son with Biology, she also took the time to give me feedback on his approach about learning. As we all know, so much goes into the learning process such as time management and sequencing the information gathered. Kim gave me some wonderful insight as to what kind of a student my child is and I'm hopeful with her suggestions that we can guide him to be a better student. We?re truly very, very lucky to have found her.
- Kathy C. from New York, NY
Kim really takes the time and is very patient in breaking down the material in a way that is more understandable. She is really nice. I feel more confident going into my test.
- Amanda T. from Nantucket, MA
Kim is amazing. She's able, somehow, to find that blend of patience and persistence that keeps my son moving forward. Bravo!
- Sharon O. from Skaneateles, NY
Kim is an excellent tutor. Very knowledge and kind--perfect combination. My daughter worked with her on ACT Math -- really excellent. She is very responsive too.
- Patrick B. from Cazenovia, NY
After just one tutoring session with Kim my daughter actually showed some interest in and understanding of the subject matter. Kim was good at engaging my daughter and keeping her interested. I finally feel like my daughter will get the help she needs to succeed in biology class.
- Martin D. from Philadelphia, PA
Kim helped me understand concepts such as the Ideal Gas Law, Stoichiometry, Effusion and Diffusion and more! She was great at explaining why these rules work which a lot of tutors can not do. I will definitely be asking for her help again in the future.
- Sean D. from Park City, UT
Ms. Kim has been teaching my son who is in Grade 4, for about 6 months. I have seen an amazing improvement in his Math skills. He seems to enjoy the sessions thoroughly and looks forward for it every week. He was also preparing for the SCAT, and was able to improve his timing on the test tremendously. Ms. Kim is an amazing teacher.
- Shashank B. from Jamesville, NY
Kim is amazing. She has helped my son to improve his grades in algebra. She goes out of her way to communicate with school staff and make sure Zach understands and is prepared for success.
- Darlene C. from Middleburg, FL
Although it seemed Kim was helpful in the first meeting, we could not reach her at all to schedule additional lessons. With just a few weeks left in the semester, we really were hoping that the person that we became established with would be there for additional sessions. If she was not going to be available, I wish she would have told us that in the beginning.
- Misty B. from Minoa, NY
Kim is engaging and has transformed how our daughter thinks about Chemistry in just two sessions. Kim has helped our daughter to make "real world" connections. Our 20 minute ride home is non-stop chatter about how Chemistry relates to everyday life. Thank you Kim!
- Katie M. from Cortland, NY
Kim was a delight and very personable. She put my daughter at ease and talked in a language that made her a bit more confident on what she really already understood. Kim was very energetic and passionate about the topic. We were able to set up a schedule for online meetings. Very pleased!
- Yvette G. from Fulton, NY
Before meeting with Kim (who I've know for years), my child hated her pre-calc class. She complained that she couldn't figure out the material. I'm an engineer, so I could help, but who wants help from their father? After her first meeting with Kim, she said "this class is easy, now that someone can explain the materials." We've seen an improvement in her grades and attitude. Definitely would recommend.
- Emmeline P. from Tully, NY
She is very clear with her teaching methods. She has a huge amount of experience and expertise in science so she brings a lot more to the lesson than other tutors.
- Vanessa T. from Los Gatos, CA
Kim really helped my daughter who had been struggling with concepts. She was able to make "the light go on" and help her make sense of things that had been hard for her to grasp! She also gave her the tools to work through and answer questions on her own. Kim made sure that my daughter had a good understanding before moving on to the next topic.
- Shelly S. from Mckinney, TX
Kim was an excellent fit for tutoring our daughter in Biology... We were impressed with her high credentials and yet she is very personable, upbeat and friendly which made it easy for my daughter to connect with her immediately. My daughter said her lesson was fun and Kim was able to teach her how to visual some concepts that were previously a little tricky for her to grasp. We would highly recommend Kim as a tutor to anyone looking for some help in Biology. Thank you :)
- Ann C. from Skaneateles, NY
Kim has helped my son not only with math but also SAT prep and College info. She has been great.
