Kim Cooper Smith
In this class, I teach students how to create and maintain stronger study habits in ways that work specifically for them, saving them time and reducing their workload. We will also address questions or concerns the student may have.
US Grade 6 - 8
Establishing and maintaining effective study habits is an invaluable skill set for all students, setting them up for success now and throughout their educational career. In this private tutoring class, I work with students to learn about, create, and maintain a learning system that utilizes their resources in the most productive way. I will provide a wealth of material, along with examples and resources to help students see these crucial skill sets in a different way. Topics to be covered...
Students will have the opportunity to learn new ways to improve their study habits and note taking skills.
I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults within the educational and mental health systems. While in graduate school, I was a part-time college instructor which ignited my passion for teaching. I then became a mental health therapist, working in residential facilities as well as in the community. For the past six years, I have taught students online, which has been rewarding and challenging in ways that continue to inspire me. Along with being a teacher, I am also a writer. I have had two short stories published, and I continue to regularly submit material. For three years, I had a blog that included my short stories, reviews, and opinions on various issues. Other examples of my writing experience consist of curriculums for an independent living program, program descriptions, numerous website articles, as well as online advertisements. I enjoy sharing my passion for writing with students and hearing about what inspires them. I strive to provide a supportive atmosphere for my students, allowing them to harness and express their creativity in ways unique to them. Throughout my educational and professional careers, I have implemented various tools in my own life to create and maintain a system of learning, organization, and balance. After successes and failures alike, I now believe the knowledge of "how to learn" is a skill that serves us well after we graduate from school. I enjoy sharing these valuable skills with students who may discover a new way to be productive, feel confident as they plan for their future, and apply them to different parts of their lives for the rest of their lives.
