I am a graduate of The Ohio State University and received my Bachelor of Arts in Korean. After graduation, I was blessed with various opportunities and experiences that have enriched the quality of my life. I interned for 3 months under the professional golfer in Dallas, TX. I worked with their non-profit organization that provides aid to young and aspiring golfers and traveled to Tampa, Florida and Seoul, South Korea. After the internship ended, I returned to Columbus, Ohio and had a number of odd jobs before starting full-time at The Ohio State University. At The Ohio State University, I worked at the Office of Legal Affairs as a legal secretary/front-desk receptionist for 2 years before realizing my passion for helping children. So I decided to quit my desk job and am currently enrolled at OSU studying child psychology.
I am approved to tutor Elementary and Middle school level Math, Reading, English, Study skills and Organization, ESL/ELL, ISEE-Lower Level, SSAT-Elementary Level, Korean language and Korean culture. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, my favorite subject is Korean language and culture. I love sharing and spreading my heritage with others and enjoy learning about other cultures as well. My #1 policy for tutoring is patience. I believe every person deserves a second chance (and maybe even a third, fourth and fifth!) and will strive to always be patient and encouraging when working with students. As far as teaching style, I will do an assessment of new clients and will apply Bloom’s taxonomy in every project. I start off by making sure the student remembers and understands the basic knowledge of a concept, then I will help the student apply and analyze their knowledge for a deeper and enriching learning experience. After a few sessions, I’ll re-evaluate the student's needs and make any necessary modifications in order to help the student attain their goal(s).
Another large part of my life is devoted to volunteering at church. I was the Treasurer and Vice President of the Young Adults/College group for the year of 2013. I am currently the Praise Team leader for Friday worship service and enjoy singing and playing piano. Every summer, I volunteer as a counselor for Ohio Youth Camp and last summer, I traveled to Jamaica for 10 days on a short-term mission trip. Also in my spare time, I enjoy reading, journaling, listening to music, running, and watching comedies.
