I graduated with Cum Laude from University of the Pacific, May 2012 with a double major in International Relations and Japanese language, with a minor in Political Science. I came to United States from South Korea 13 years ago in 4th grade of elementary school, and as such am able to speak both English and Korean fluently. Having gone through the process of English language as a second language, and having learned Japanese and having studied abroad in Japan for a bit, I know what it is like to learn new languages, and have the background from which to draw experiences and insights when I teach English, Korean, or Japanese.

Moreover, I have worked as a tutor at my university for a year, teaching physics and statistics in addition to Japanese and economics classes to fellow University of the Pacific students who are struggling in the above-mentioned classes I have already taken and done well in. I specifically chose to teach physics and statistics, not because I liked and excelled in it particularly, but because I wanted to help those who always had trouble with numbers and science like me. I have always hated math and science since I was in high school, and when I had to take these two classes for a general education requirement, I had to work hard to understand the materials. By working hard in it and not giving up on it however, I was able to figure out ways to understand the materials in a more logical way and make sense of it, and wanted to pass it on to other students in the same boat as me.

I enjoy teaching and tutoring people and seeing them improve and do better in school in whatever they were struggling in.
