I am currently working on a graduate degree in Chinese history from the University of British Columbia. Prior to this, I have worked as a test prep instructor in Korea and China with The Princeton Review and as an ESL teacher at New Mexico State University. As a test prep instructor, I taught SAT, SSAT, TOEFL, and GRE. Test Prep, as I have come to experience it does not mean the memorizing of 10,000 things. It is understanding that standardized tests are logic games, that they test nothing outside what you have already learned in school. The rub comes from the presentation, that standardized tests are designed as puzzles. There are rules and operating procedures to be followed, and if those rules and operating procedures are followed, you can improve your scores. This all boils down down to what the student wants from the test and the following school experience. As such, I strive for an individualized session that is molded to your needs and interests. And really, this is what I believe education is all about, finding a dialogical space for individual and outside world so that both can grow.
