About Kahn

I am a recent graduate of UC Berkeley, with a B.A. degree in Gender and Women's Studies. As a recipient of both Departmental Citation and Highest Honors in general scholarship (the latter is equivalent to Summa Cum Laude and accorded to those who have a cumulative GPA of 3.944 or higher), I have an excellent command of and healthy obsession with language. I am also a proud recipient of Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship, Cal Pride Scholarship, and Leadership Award, among many. I have numerous experiences of presenting my original research at international and domestic academic conferences, often as the sole undergraduate participant.

The past two years of tutoring English has been an empowering tool for me to learn through teaching how to read, analyze and write papers and meet those who are equally eager for intellectual engagement. I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea and attended international schools in Shanghai, China, during the last years of my adolescence. This seeming disadvantage of English not being my native tongue has rather made me a better English tutor, as I bear an acute sensitivity to its grammatical rules. Applying my ability to distinguish and clarify a myriad of nuances across words and phrases, I aid high school and community college students to achieve a successful grasp of the English language. In particular, I have helped my previous Grammar, Literature, SAT Reading and Writing students with how to assess and summarize passages under time limitations, which are essential skills to acquire in this time-driven age.

My specific availability is as follows:
Monday and Wednesday: 4pm - 12am
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday: 9am - 5pm
Friday: 3pm - 12am

Even as I laid out my schedule as above, I can be flexible with the time and location of the tutoring session. Please feel free to contact me about the specific questions or concerns!
