I am a big proponent of cultivating both academic excellence and passion because I believe this has far-reaching benefits to grow as an individual, not just as a cookie-cutter student. I tailor my lessons to engage, strategize, and respond to each student’s changing needs. My ultimate goal is to help the student develop writing and study tools that each student can apply to any academic situation and help them realize their full potential.
A little about myself: after finishing Korea International High School as the class valedictorian and two-time recipient of the Principal's Scholarship, I went on to graduate Northwestern University Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in film production and a certificate in integrated marketing. I regularly worked 27-hour film sets on weekends while receiving the Dean’s list every quarter with a full course load. Balancing my academic performance with my dream taught me invaluable tools for time management and a do-it-yourself attitude.
My speciality is in writing and revising essays because I love helping my students to develop strategic tools and mentor their personal growth. Whether it be college application essays, literary analysis, or personal narratives, writing by nature is personal and requires not only structure and organization but also an understanding of self. My students were accepted at top institutions such as Emory University and Seoul National University with their outstanding college application essays.
In addition to writing, I tutor reading comprehension; SAT/PSAT reading/writing test prep; middle school math and Algebra I. During my weekly volunteer experience teaching reading comprehension to Korean elementary school children for a full year, I refined my skill sets as a tutor.
Outside of my tutor-persona, I’m an avid music video director and photographer. I love to write, and have a penchant for all things film, music, fashion and design.
