About Me

KimLeeMy wonderful early experiences with children as a babysitter, and camp counselor at the YMCA led me to a career in child education for the past 22 years, including:

  • Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education
  • Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Science
  • Extensive training in COGNET: Mediated Learning (Thinking Strategies)
  • Fifth and Third Grade Teacher for Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) for 5 years
  • K-5 Support Teacher for HCPSS Office of Academic Support training students, parents, and teachers in thinking strategies
  • Taught college courses for teachers through College of Notre Dame in Baltimore, MD
  • Taught continuing education courses for HCPSS
  • Served as a New Teacher Mentor and Consultant for teachers in HCPSS
  • Preschool Teacher at Mt. Hebron Nursery School; and helped develop and implement their Enrichment Program

Besides my teaching background, I really enjoy being a mom to my three children ages 13, 15, and 17.  While tutoring and teaching part time, I have enjoyed being home with my children.  My many experiences with my children have helped shape my teaching techniques and philosophies as well, including coaching their soccer and basketball teams, leading their book clubs, leading my daughters’ Girl Scout troops, and volunteering at their elementary and middle schools.

“Both of my children have been lucky enough to participate in Kim Lee’s summer math camps.  The enthusiasm and energy she brings to teaching, along with her instructional expertise, makes for an unparalleled learning experience! She does a terrific job building her students’ content knowledge, problem solving skills, and most of all their confidence and excitement about math!”

“My son has been to Kim Lee’s Math Camp for several years.  She creates such a warm, supportive environment and makes it so much fun that the children don’t even realize how much they’re learning!  Typically, children lose skills, or at best remain static over the summer.  I’ve found that my son has continued to grow and learn over the summer and is ready to tackle new subject matter as soon as school starts in August.  Ms. Lee is passionate about discovering how each child learns and customizes lessons to geared towards individual learning preferences.  Recently, Ms. Lee has started working with my son on impulse control, self-regulation, and thinking strategies relative to ADHD.  After only a few sessions, there is a noticeable difference in his behavior!”

“My daughter absolutely loves Kim’s math camp! Since attending math camp, she now says math is her favorite activity. Kim does a great job of intregrating math into everyday activities like reading a book or snack time. Kim has so many different math activities and also teaches them great learning techniques such as “Make an S and close the gate, that’s how you make the number 8!”  Kim always sends a detailed email with pictures of what took place in class that day. As a parent, I love that aspect of the class. We have been so happy with this class and love that it has provided an environment where learning is fun!”

“Kim offers the perfect combination of academics & fun in each lesson.  She has a warm and inviting nature that allows children to become instantly comfortable to learn.  My children look forward to going each week!”

“Kim Lee is a phenomenal math tutor!  She has had a tremendous impact on my
daughter’s success in mathematics at school.  She is warm,
intuitive– and can actually make math fun!  She has a vast array of games
and materials that help bring math concepts to children on different levels.
She also has a thorough understanding of both past and present curriculum in
Howard County, which has helped my daughter– and myself– learn to bridge that inevitable gap in goals and assessments.  Kim’s tutoring has been such a positive experience that we also participate in her summer math camp.  I cannot say enough about what a gifted math teacher she is, and I would recommend anyone who is looking for math help to take advantage of Kim Lee Learning– and hope math camp isn’t full by the time you get there!”

“Our family highly recommends Kim Lee’s tutoring services!  When my son started math tutoring with Kim, he said he hated math.  His attitude about math changed quickly after working with her.  She has excellent qualifications and experience so I know that he is getting great help with his math skills.  He has also benefited from the many thinking skills that she builds into her lessons, especially since my son has ADHD and Kim has been able to suggest thinking strategies to help him with some of his ADHD challenges.  The bonus is that he loves working with Miss Kim because she has so many great games and math toys, and she makes all her lessons fun.  Kim really loves teaching and working with kids!”
