To start, I am a Korean-American originally from a small suburb near Los Angeles, California. My educational history includes a major in General Biology and minor in Psychology from the University of California, San Diego, as well as a Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree from Boston University. My educational interests include anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, neurobiology/psychology, algebra, and child and adolescent psychology. My personal interests vary from cooking to hiking to watching and playing just about every sport possible.
I have had many years of tutoring experience in both a class and 1-on-1 setting. My longest experience involved tutoring a group of 10-12 7th and 8th grade students; which included but was not limited to completing schoolwork, preparing for STAR testing, and providing additional quizzes and questions when necessary. I have also had several years of part-time tutoring jobs for children in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th grade, with additional experience in 1-on-1 tutoring with 2 SAT students.
My experience with teaching stems from not just an instructor's perspective, but also as a student; attending after school tutoring from the age of 13 to 17 years old. I believe this is one of the reasons I can connect to students so easily, because I understand the difficulties with learning. My tutoring sessions involve a very interactive approach on the part of the student with a reward based approach for their efforts. This is my way of promoting student interest in the topics of study, to prevent monotony and boredom with school work. I like to try to incorporate games into my tutoring sessions that may include topics they have learned; whether it's a memory card game, jeopardy, or a simple game of hangman.
As your tutor, I will do my best to not only help your student excel at school, but also find fun in learning.
