Successes - 2020
Learning is fun when you go to Kim. She makes it easy. She makes me feel really happy when I am there. She helps me with things I can't figure out or do on my own. She makes me feel smart and tells me to be myself.
Kim Carson, in a word, is a Blessing. We really don't know where we would be without her. Our son has gained confidence in himself in a time when he felt like he couldn't learn. Kim showed him he CAN learn; he just learns differently from others. Kim has a knack for reaching children. She finds their strengths, follows their interests, and helps them find success. Our son is excited to go to Smart Start. He always leaves with renewed confidence in his abilities and armed with tools to take back to the classroom. Kim is an advocate for our son and a resource for our school's staff. We are so thankful to have found Kim Carson of the Smart Start Dyslexia Correction Center.

My favorite things you have taught me:
We have two daughters with varying degrees of dyslexia who have benefitted greatly from Kim's dyslexia interventions. Our first daughter has a more mild form of dyslexia that Kim helped identify and then referred us onto the Scottish Rite for a formal diagnosis. Miranda received an intensive 1:1
program with Kim that launched her into independent reading. Through the years, Miranda would see Kim for various remediation reminders and tutoring that helped her become a now successful Dean's List college student.
I came to Kim Carson to get tutoring help with College Algebra. She is able to pinpoint the things I never understood before, but didn't see those things to be the problem. She has helped me make more connections with my math than I thought possible. That makes me excited to conquer more than just math, which makes me feel excited for the future.
Kim has been such a blessing for our boys! She tutors them on a regular basis and helps us navigate 504 meetings with school administrators. She works with teachers, so they have a better understanding of our children, and she always knows how to give the confidence needed to succeed! We are very thankful for Kim's expertise!
