Why Kim Thompson?

I have been a tutor for the past eleven years, specifically working with students who attend some of the most prestigious private schools in the Bay Area.

I have been editing essays for students who attend The Harker School, Valley Christian Schools, Santa Clara University, Bellarmine, Leland, and many other schools located in Silicon Valley.

Recently, I have been working with students from China and Bangladesh who wish to enter colleges in the United States. It has been such a blessing to meet so many wonderful students.

Personally, I encourage my students and I build relationships with each one. I offer support to them throughout the school year, and they know that they can depend upon me.

As an English major, I absolutely love to write and to read short stories, poetry, and great novels. My hope is that the excitement I have for finding deeper truths within a text is contagious. This will result in my students writing papers with great depth. I want each student to finish a session with me and have more confidence in their writing ability.

I sincerely love my job.
