Lesson Details

Math

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
I specialize in math from a Biblical worldview. We'll start by discussing where you are and what you need, and we'll tailor your lessons based on your goals and your skills. Because higher level math builds on lower level math, we'll ensure you have a strong foundation in the basics through trying out practice problems before we move on to more challenging topics. I aim to help you meet your goals quickly and thoroughly, so that you don't have to take lessons forever. Before you know it, you'll see God's greatness in math and be ready for whatever math He throws your way!

Teaching since:
2006

Looking for someone to help you get pumped about a challenging topic? I am your gal! The Lord has blessed me with enthusiasm for learning, and I will show you how to get excited about it too.

I earned my bachelor's degree from Northwestern University in 2003. My highest degree is a PhD in psychology with a specialty in quantitative research methods, which I earned from Vanderbilt in 2012.

As a PhD student I taught courses in introductory statistics and tutored high school and college students in math. When I'm not tutoring, I teach my children, who are 6, 4, and 2, and run a printing business with my husband.

I love to work with students of all ages and skill levels. Click the green button, and let's get started!

Experience

Tutor
Aug 2017 - Present
Classical Conversations

I tutor students in 4th-5th grade with my local homeschooling community once a week. Each week we memorize facts in history, English, math, science, Latin, and geography. We complete a science project and a fine arts project, and each student gives a presentation. Finally, we spend some time reviewing all of the facts we learned in previous weeks.

I also support and encourage parents, because they are their students' primary teachers! Classical Conversations offers free parent training every summer.

Statistics · In studio

Kim tutored me during my last semester of my senior year on statistics. I am SO thankful to have learned from her because, not only is she a welcoming person to meet with, but her help on statistics brought my grade average up by almost 2 letter grades!
I actually felt excited about this tough subject because Kim never had to graze over any subjects in the course; she always knew the subject and went in-depth when I needed it.

I worked with Kim on The Study of Mathematically Precocious Youth at Vanderbilt. She is a brilliant statistician and a very patient teacher. She is able to work with the student or advisee on an individual basis by assessing the individual's educational needs. I would highly recommend her to any student who needs help in any field of mathematics.
