I am an undergraduate student at Syracuse University that has had more than 5 years of experience in private tutoring and I have also been tutored myself for several years so I'm able to relate even more to current learning students. I am pursuing my degree in International Relations and U.S. History so I'm very accustomed to critical reading and writing and am also very interested in foreign languages. I'm fluent in English and Korean, but am also in the process of furthering my knowledge in the Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese languages, allowing for more efficiency and comfort in communicating with students coming from various ethnic backgrounds. I specialize in English and have had the most experience in teaching grammar and speaking skills. I can tutor students ranging from elementary levels to high school, including college prep, as I've scored an 800 on the SAT writing section. I am also able to drive to where you may want to meet within the Syracuse area.

Learn proper English with an instructor who understands the difficulties of learning different languages. As a Korean American, I went back and forth from the USA to Korea at a young age and had to re-learn English and Korean in the moving process. I have some knowledge of the Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese languages and can provide more guidance for slower learners who desire more explanation while learning English.

Need help with grammar? I'm able to tutor students of all ages in proper grammar usage.
As a second generation Korean American, I grew up speaking both English and Korean. I also taught Korean to non-Korean speaking Korean Americans and have long term experience in interpreting and translating from Korean to English and vice versa. I'm currently a Korean interpreter for an interpretation company and am even familiar with medical and legal vocabulary.
