My name is Kim B. I am excited to have this opportunity to assist children, teens and/or adults with their educational development. I hold a bachelor's degree in Philosophy from the University of California, San Diego; a master's degree in Philosophy from San Diego State University; and a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from the University of the West in Rosemead, CA. Besides my general expertise in the areas of the Humanities, I can tutor specific areas such as reading, writing, basic English, research, study skills, paper organizing and writing, as well as other topics associated with reading, writing and research.

I enjoy helping people learn the skills they need to be an empowered student. I am an action oriented person, meaning I actively seek solutions to issues, especially classroom or learning problems. One of my strongest assets is the ability to assist in the development of logical and organized thinking, as well as providing a structure and framework within which each student can operate successfully. If appropriate, I will seek to bring in any and all other sources that may be helpful. I will also change up my approach and methods if required. I am very adaptable and have learned that different students often require different approaches to tutoring. I am also very patient.

I look forward to working with you. Thank you.

I graduated with a Ph.D. in Religious Studies in May 2012. I have taught religion to children and adults in social and university settings.
