Hello. My name is Kim Hefty and I live in Sammamish, Washington. For the past 24 years I have taught all levels of high school mathematics. 14 years ago I started a private tutoring business. .
I also have 2 children ages 15 and 24. My daughter graduated from Elon University in North Carolina. My son plays competitive golf and premiere soccer so most of my weekends are spent at either soccer or golf tournaments.
