To briefly introduce myself, I have finished my doctoral work at Princeton University and started working as a postdoctoral fellow in Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in 2015.

I worked as a teaching assistant during my graduate years and gained an experience as a private tutor in high school biology.

Having studied molecular biology for more than 10 years, and having experience in teaching high school and college students, I am confident that my skills would be appreciated by my clients.

My fluency in Korean can also deliver academic assistance and preparation to Korean-American students as well.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Memorize and understand until you can draw and write on a blank piece of paper.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In a typical first session, I will be the listener and hear what a student expects and needs from the tutoring sessions.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Teaching not only the test materials, but also teaching how to study effectively and efficiently.
