Hello all, My name is Kim and I am a recent graduate of the Barry University's Biomedical Science Master's degree program. I am currently attending Pharmacy school and in my first year.
I enjoy tutoring because I like to "pay it foward". If I could help someone understand something much easier than I did then it is a pleasurable experience for me. I like to help others succeed and I can share in their valued successes.
Outside of tutoring, I am a mother to a 7 year old little boy, I like to read, play tennis and spend time with my son.
Undergraduate Degree: University of Central Florida - Bachelors, Health Services Administration
Graduate Degree: Barry University - Current Grad Student, Biomedical Science
I like reading, spending time with family and learning languages to meet new people.
What is your teaching philosophy?
That everything can be learned!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Get to know the students and what their weaknesses are in a particular subject so that I can help them better understand it.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Give them homework or things to think about in regards to the lesson at hand, and then they can come back to me with what they had learned.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I would try different avenues in teaching, i.e. worksheets, pictures, videos, stories, etc.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
Let them read things they are interested in first, and then we can branch off into other topics.
