Please call other tutors and compare both their hourly rates and estimated instruction time for the student to make one year's worth of academic progress AND what they will do for you if the student doesn't make the progress that has been promised.


Attention to the Parents of Five and Six Year Olds

My work is mainly to help struggling students to reach grade level and beyond in reading, writing and math. However, last year I taught beginning reading to two kindergarteners from Moreland Notre Dame School in Watsonville. Working with them for half an hour a week, they quickly rose to the head of the class.

By starting reading at such a young age, the pace of learning can be very relaxed and sure. Getting ahead early is much better, easier and cheaper than playing catch up later. And you never know how competent your child's teacher will be in teaching reading.

For $20 a week you can give your child a brighter future.

Superior money back guarantee

To make tutoring affordable to as many families as possible, the cost for my professional tutoring service is $40 an hour for individuals and $25 for group tutoring. I am so confident that I can help your child improve their skills, I offer a money back guarantee: one grade level of improvement after 20 hours or your money back, guaranteed. No other tutoring service makes this offer. Testing is very expensive, and you could solve your child's academic problems with Kimes Tutoring with the same or smaller investment.
