I recently joined Wyzant after spending time at one of the big Bay Area tutoring companies.

I first began tutoring and developing teaching materials at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering. I also studied a lot of mathematics and nearly added it as a second major. As a freshman at MIT, the professor of a graduate level advanced calculus course asked me to prepare supplemental class materials based on my personal notes. I also gained experience working as a tutor for the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, teaching SAT prep classes, and even writing math questions for local high school mathematics competitions.

After college, I attended law school and then practiced as a patent litigator and patent prosecutor for over a decade. Over the years, I have taught patent drafting and legal writing to junior attorneys, and I have also taught essay writing to college students.

When it comes to my teaching philosophy, I believe in focusing on gaining a solid grasp of fundamentals and taking a structured approach to problem-solving. I always try to show students that they know more than they think they know. I’ve always done well on standardized tests (99th percentile for PSAT and SAT, 95th percentile for LSAT) and I know what it takes to achieve excellent results.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

SungSoo taught my son Algebra 2. He patiently helped him with the concepts, identified gaps, gave him practice questions and prepared him well for his tests. We recommend SungSoo very highly- especially his proactive approach to giving our son additional practice.
