About the Instructor


Certified Kumon Instructor

As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Biography and Background

Kimberly Teira

I have a BA in Accounting from William Patterson University. I have lived in Florida since 1990 and Saint Johns since 2001. We moved here for the school system. As a stay-at-home mom, I was very involved in the school system. I had a number of different roles such as PTO vice-president, parliamentarian, secretary, room parents, as well as being instructional in the implementation of Cunningham Creek Elementary Teacher's Book room. I volunteered in the ESE classes, helping students complete assignments.

Often, I had part time jobs to allow me to be home when my children were home. I was employed by the Sheriff's Department as a school crossing guard for seven years. Finally finding Kumon in 2013, after working with this program I realized this is something that all students could benefit from. So began my process to own my own Kumon Center, and become a Certified Kumon Instructor.
