Kim's Tutoring Services
About this pro
I work with the student to find out what type learner they are. This way I can help them learn according to the method that works best for them. Too many waste time on methods that don't encourage their learning style. I enjoy the excitement on a student's face when they are grasping the concepts and able to catch their own mistakes.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always been studious, and created study groups. A few members of my study groups asked would I tutor them in other subjects because I helped them connect the dots. I was pleasantly surprised at my own enjoyment with helping others to reach their academic goals.
- What types of customers have you worked with?All ages from 7- middle aged adults I have had the honor of working with. I have been privileged to say I have worked with a broad range of ethnicities, various religious affiliations, and numerous personality types.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Ensure the student and tutor can work together. Sometimes the tutor may not be a good match for the student. I would also suggest setting goals and time frames on achieving them. If your goal is to raise your ACT score, then set the goal to increase by 4 points with 60 Days. In 60 days, test yourself to see if this goal has been achieved. Remember, goals have to be realistic and achievable. If you already have an ACT score of 28 or higher, realistically to increase it by 4 pts to a 32 is a little unrealistic.
