Kim Sutton Associates

After 20+ years of Kim Sutton traveling around the country working with thousands of teachers, we realized Kim is not getting to all of the states we would like, to effectively share her amazing material and ability to teach math content in a fun and exciting way.

To achieve this goal, we have trained a select number of teachers to be available in those states we don't reach as often as we'd like.  These teachers use and feel passionately about Kim's material and teaching style and can help provide the exposure and support needed for the teachers Kim cannot reach herself.

These consultants speak at local conferences, work with local schools and districts and offer after-school and weekend classes. Stay up to date with our online calendar.

We are pleased to have the following educators join our team:
