About Mindy


Bio

I love to educate and help people move forward. That's my primary job as a teacher in one of the public schools in Los Angeles. I would love to be able to help more people through offering tutoring services.

What I am able to offer is comprehensiveness because I understand the education system in the States and know the formula for whatever goal you have in mind for yourself or your child. Your child will not only excel in the subject that I am tutoring in, but will be guided through the...

I love to educate and help people move forward. That's my primary job as a teacher in one of the public schools in Los Angeles. I would love to be able to help more people through offering tutoring services.

What I am able to offer is comprehensiveness because I understand the education system in the States and know the formula for whatever goal you have in mind for yourself or your child. Your child will not only excel in the subject that I am tutoring in, but will be guided through the steps to success in higher education and beyond. I am multilingual with proficiency in Korean and Spanish. I can cater to the different needs of different students because I understand that every child has different learning styles.

I believe that building trust and building a relationship is key to success in tutoring and educating. We cannot just simply hope that we can pour in information into the brain and hope that it sticks. Teaching is not just about how much information is retained. It's about development of the brain and developing skills that will help you move forward in life.

Am I saying that you don't need high grades and good SAT scores?? Of course, not! To get to where you want to be you do need to jump through some hoops and learn to play the game. I will provide both foundation and practical skills to be successful in both your academic career and your life.

I have teaching experience in Math, English, Writing and Spanish. I am confident in any of the other subjects that I've listed. I went to a top-tier Ivy League university because I knew what they were looking for. I have worked with students from all ages for college preparation and beyond. I hope to be able to meet you in person and discover what we can achieve together.

Part of my job is to make sure that students are passing their classes and managing their time properly. My method includes how parents (or other adults) can be involved to keep the student accountable. I always connect it to short-term or long-term goals so the students are working toward something. Being a teacher at a middle school also means that I am equipped to tutor in all core classes: Math, Science, History, and English. Organization and time management will also be a focus in my teaching.
