I am a Korean-American graduate student at the University of Bonn, a top 5 institution in mathematics in Europe (first in Germany). I have been tutoring for three years in the college setting. I generally tutor graduate and undergraduate mathematics, however I have teaching experience with calculus and linear algebra. I also have experience with high-school/middle-school algebra and other topics (such as pre-calculus) through private tutoring with families and friends.

I am a Korean-American graduate student at the University of Bonn, a top 5 institution in mathematics in Europe (first in Germany). I have been tutoring for three years in the college setting. I generally tutor graduate and undergraduate mathematics, however I have teaching experience with calculus and linear algebra. I also have experience with high-school/middle-school algebra and other topics (such as pre-calculus) through private tutoring with families and friends.
As for credentials, over the past few years, I have attended the following universities:
UC Berkeley (Berkeley, CA), Yonsei University (Seoul, Korea), University of Rochester (Rochester, NY), and San Francisco State University (San Francisco, CA)
At Berkeley, I researched algebra and complete my senior year there. I spent a year in Seoul for studying abroad where I experienced the good (and the bad) parts of Asian universities. At the University of Rochester, I worked with a high ranking analysis professor on distance problems. At San Francisco State, I graduated with a Bachelors in mathematics for advanced studies. My undergraduate paper was published in a top peer-reviewed journal in mathematics.
As someone who has attended several universities, I do not believe in a general method when tackling the education problem as every individual is different. I develop a method of tutoring for a student based on his/her individual needs. In general, the layout I use per session is: I ask how much the student understands; I test them on their understanding; I provide intuition and motivation till they catch up to their desired understanding of the subject, and I finish with an assisted homework session. If there is no homework provided, I can provide exercises on the spot.
