I graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in philosophy and pursued a M. Architecture there also. Since then, I have taught many students Literature, English, Science, Art and various test prep courses, including SAT, GRE, TOEFL, ACT, and SAT II and AP tests in Literature.

I specialize in a college-prep approach for high school students in that I help them to obtain the content and study skills to do well in their school GPA as well as engage them in an interesting and meaningful way so that they are receiving a real education and reaching their potential, which naturally leads to higher grades and test scores.

I have taught a wide range of students, including younger students and adults, and they have gone on to achieve their goals and success.

I have a 2 hour cancellation policy, and missed classes can be made up.

Whether it’s catching up in a certain subject or staying one step ahead of what’s being taught in class, I will try to help your child reach his or her full potential.

In applying for the M. Architecture program at UC Berkeley, I submitted a portfolio of paintings and drawings, which ultimately helped lead to my acceptance there. Although I did not major in fine arts in college, I have always had an interest in art, and in high school, I took 4 years of art, in addition to being tutored in art and art history. I kept painting in graduate school, while studying architecture and design, and took art courses then as well. In 2001, my oil paintings were exhibited at The Lab, in San Francisco.

While teaching in Korea, I also tutored students in art, in setting up projects that would combine writing and the visual arts, or just painting and the history and principles of art.

Thank you.
Karolyn L.
