I'm a certified teacher with LAUSD in English. I've taught test prep for over 5 years and have lengthy experiences with the SAT, ACT, and LSAT. My students routinely improve 300 points on the SAT, 5 points on the ACT from the PSAT or first administration of the ACT.
I believe in teaching all the necessary academic content for the test, but not more. That is, know what's on the tests, but don't teach what's not on the test. I also believe the students should take advantage of the available, useful test taking methods that are applicable to the SAT, etc.
I'm available to teach in person or online.
I have taught ESL for 8 years, including as a certified teacher with Los Angeles Unified School District. I've taught all levels and ages to all backgrounds. I undergone over 200 hours of teacher training for ESL.
I'm a native speaker in Korean. English is my second language. I am fluent in Korean, speak Korean at home and with Korean speakers in the outside environment often. I have recently spent 2 years living in Korea.
I have fluency in reading (newspapers), writing, listening and speaking.
I have taught with the Princeton Review and have taught this test for 5 years with outstanding results, far beyond test prep organizations' norms. Renormalizaiton of SAT in recent years has made the SAT easier to teach and to "coach."
