About Kimberly

Hello,

My name is Kim Blanks. I currently live in Raleigh North Carolina. My work experience includes Being a Substance Abuse Counselor, Probation Parole Officer, Guardian ad Litem, tutor, and personal assistant and tutor for elementary, middle, high school, and college gradates. I have a Bachelors Degree in Education and Urban Studies, and I have a Masters Degree In Forensic Psychology. I enjoy reading, going to the gym, and spending time with family and friends.

My experience and personal methods of tutoring process of getting students to become independent through questioning. Tutoring should help students develop self-confidence and improve study skills. In addition, the tutoring session should provide students with an opportunity to speak up and ask questions, an opportunity sometimes unavailable or missed in a regular classroom situation.

Tutoring is a well-balanced question/information exchange in which both parties participate and, therefore, both benefit. Tutoring provides the practice and drill in specific course material needed by the student, while giving the tutor valuable review opportunities and the chance to develop and sharpen educational and communication skills.

Tutoring is not teaching. There are important differences between the role of the tutor and that of the classroom teacher. Approaches, relationships, and techniques are different. My goal is to work very close with the student, usually one-on-one. The student may not be accustomed to the close contact and the interchange that occurs during a tutoring session. I consciously strive to develop a good rapport with the student and parents, in a safe and comfortable environment.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Criminal Justice

I worked as a Probation Parole Officer for over 10 years. I have a Masters Degree in Forensic Psychology.
