Bio

Hi! My name is Kim, and for 20 years I have been working to help people reach their goals. I have worked with individuals of all ages, with varying skill sets, and settings from high school, to college and to the workforce. Currently, I tutor students at Bunker Hill Community College in Human Services, Early Childhood Development, Psychology and English.

Hi! My name is Kim, and for 20 years I have been working to help people reach their goals. I have worked with individuals of all ages, with varying skill sets, and settings from high school, to college and to the workforce. Currently, I tutor students at Bunker Hill Community College in Human Services, Early Childhood Development, Psychology and English. Prior to this role, I worked as a Student Development Counselor at Brighton High School where I advised a caseload of 200 to 250 high school students on graduating from high school and creating postsecondary plans.

In every one of my positions, I have had to develop my English writing and communication skills. I have learned how to convey information in a professional but direct manner, through emails, in meetings, or in person, over the phone and through the use of PowerPoint presentations. I honed my public speaking skills, when I worked at the Boston Private Industry Council (PIC), as I was required to lead trainings, and workshops at private companies in and around Boston.

For the first ten years of my career, I worked as a vocational counselor helping individuals with disabilities gain meaningful and appropriate employment based on their unique skill sets. Each client was at a different stage in their lives, and I worked with them one-on-one to develop individualized plans that met all of their wants and needs. Part of this was breaking large goals into small more manageable pieces, and giving individuals the techniques and tools to help them complete tasks on their own with confidence.

Part of my work experience has been helping others develop soft or life skills in groups or through one-on-one instruction. These skills are important as they translate to every part of our lives - school, work and personal relationships. Topics covered include but not limited to time management, organizational skills, conflict resolution, problem solving, and study skills.

If you like what you see, and you think I can help, please contact me. I would love the opportunity to work with you.

Career Development

Career Development

For roughly ten years, I worked as an Employment Consultant/Specialist for two separate non-profit agencies, one in Western Massachusetts and one in Boston. During this time, I counseled clients with disabilities through the entire job development process, which included assessing each clients’ needs, emotional states and communication styles to develop a comprehensive employment plan outlining short and long-term goals. I worked with individuals of all ages from 22 to 60, with varying skill levels, and different stages in their careers. In order to enhance my work, I obtained a certificate in Marketing and Job Development from UMass, Boston. I also became adept at helping my clients be creative and think outside of the box, something which I was able to share with others in the field. For instance, I served on discussion panels for statewide conferences at Mission Employment I and II, participated in a Boston Neighborhood Network (BNN) broadcast on Job Accommodations, and presented at the Association for Persons with Severe Handicaps (TASH) as well as the Association for People in Supported Employment (APSE).

College Counseling

College Counseling

In June of 2010, I received a Master of Education with a concentration in School Counseling from UMass, Boston. Four years later, in 2014, I obtained a job at Brighton High School as a School Development Counselor. Part of my job was to assist all of the seniors on my caseload with every aspect of the college application process, which consisted of filing out the Common Application, writing recommendation letters, reviewing and editing college essays, financial aid (FASFA), scholarships, etc. The top students I worked with won prestigious scholarships (Posse, Menino at BU), and attended colleges such as Northeastern University, Boston College, and Boston University. Additionally, I was responsible for educating students on the importance of the PSAT (sophomores) and SAT exams (juniors and seniors), and the impact the scores have on the college admission process. Lastly, I helped to coordinate large college fairs and college tours during the school year and the summer.
