I started working as a tutor in 2009, when I came back to NY from Korea. While there, I taught English, with an emphasis on test preparation. Here in NY, I have worked with a lot of kids to prepare for the Hunter High School test, as well as the SHSAT and the SAT. I keep current on the testing requirements for the various schools and the updates to the SAT. I understand how tests work and help my students to understand strategies for taking tests, as well as refreshing their knowledge of academic subjects and strengthening skill sets. Through the years of working as a tutor, I have deepened my understanding of math and English. I have helped students write papers, prepare for AP exams and study for History. I have worked with students of all ages and backgrounds. It's really thrilling to see students change and grow and I love getting the notes and phone calls when they have done well in their classes or on their tests! I feel consistently challenged and stimulated by my work as a tutor.

Like many tutors, I have other interests! I studied photography at Rochester Institute of Technology, and received a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Media Arts. I recently began online studies at Oxford University, where I have taken numerous philosophy and economics classes. I plan to transfer to a local university to complete my Masters degree sometime within the next few years. In the meantime, I am very busy with my art projects. I am also a photographer and Photoshop artist, I have been able to share my knowledge of these powerful tools with students through WyzAnt.

Adobe Photoshop

I have extensive experience as a photographer and Photoshop artist. I am an extremely proficient in Photoshop and very handy with cameras and computers. My company makes fine art photography, video and dance projects that have been displayed in Spain, Portugal, Denmark, China and the US. I studied photography and Photoshop at Rochester Institute of Technology, where I was also a teaching assistant in the computer lab where I assisted students in their Photoshop projects.

I have worked as a professional Photoshop artist on a variety of real estate and wedding projects. I worked as a photographer and Photoshop retoucher for a company that made images for low-carb food products as well as doing Photoshop retouching for a company that created promotional materials and documentation for performing artists. In addition to Photoshop, I have worked with Nikon Image Capture, Illustrator, DVD Studio Pro. I retouched photos and created custom DVDs using InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Word, Final Cut and DVD Studio on both Mac and PC.

In addition to spending time working with Photoshop and cameras, I have been a teacher in numerous fields for more than 10 years. I teach ballet and modern dance and I tutor a variety of subjects, including math and history. I'm delighted to be able to offer my expertise to students in the area of Photoshop!
