Teaching is what excites me most--it thrills me to watch my students growing through my tutoring.

I've been a teacher and tutor for more than 15 years. With advanced degrees in History, Education and Information Science, I teach a wide range of subjects such as American History, European History, African American History, World History--both for AP and SAT--Social Studies, Government and SAT Verbal. As a fluent Korean speaker, I also teach Korean to students and adults who are interested in the Korean language, culture and society as well as ESL to non-English speaking students and adults.

As a seasoned tutor who have taught students from all walks of life--different age groups, learning styles, subject preference, learning needs, language proficiency--I help students with their study strategies, organization skills and time management so they can overcome study-related anxiety and focus on their academic process.

Deeply devoted to and passionate about helping students maximize their academic potential, I try my best to accommodate students' different learning needs and learning styles no matter where they are in their study process. Particularly, private tutoring has the great advantage of enabling students to interact with their tutor in a more intimate setting where they receive full attention from their tutors.

Most importantly, I always remind students of the ultimate purpose of their learning process that it's not simply to score high on their exam or complete their homework. It's to discover the joy of learning so that they can apply the study skills and subject expertise to their everyday life even beyond school.

Through my tutoring, students have discovered that learning a new subject or improving their academic records isn't always a stressful, anxiety-inducing process but a fun, meaningful way to be a well-rounded and well-educated individual. I greatly look forward to meeting new students who can join me in this journey!
