About Sung

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."
--Benjamin Franklin

Hello Parents and Students :D

My name is Sung. I am a recent college graduate from the University of Richmond.
My major is interdisciplinary in Psychology, Philosophy and Economics with a French minor.

I have studied abroad in Korea at Yonsei University and in Paris at the University of Paris. I also placed first place and second place in the James J. Doyle Oral Proficiency Contest in 2008 and 2009 for Japanese II and and Japanese III respectively. During my summers, I worked in intensive residential treatment facilities for psychologically and emotionally disturbed children. With over 3000+ hours of supervised clinical work with included 10 hours of academic instruction, I am more than capable of providing a structured environment for special needs students that will allow them to not only excel academically, but build self confidence and develop essential pro-social skills.

Being an effective tutor is not just about just knowing the material or being able to present that information effectively. While such proficiencies are necessary, they are not sufficient. Tutors need to know and adapt to the learning style of their students while make the material "real", accessible and engaging. Forcing students to do homework or study without the motivation to do so is a fruitless endeavor.

As a tutor for your child, I will not only work with them to learn their academic material but I will also help them become confident in their abilities, foster positive studying habits, and most importantly, nurture a curiosity that will help them succeed.

My teaching methods are based upon my own experiences as a student, my clinical work and from best practices and theories from psychology, mostly cognitive, personality and social psychology.

I was the founder and president of the Archery Club at my college and can instruct Olympic Style Recurve Archery as well as Traditional Korean Reflex Box Archery.

I am able to tutor psychology, marketing, philosophy, economics, Japanese, French, Math and most sciences up to introductory college levels. Please get in contact with me for specifics.

My rates are listed on Wzyant but are negotiable based upon: Distance, Number of Classes, Length of Each Lesson, etc.

Please feel free to contact me about any questions you may have!

I look forwards to working with you or your child.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

In college I helped my career services edit resumes and cover letters. With my extensive study abroad experience, I was the student liaison for the international education department. I provided students with the knowledge, perspective and support to study abroad.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked with socially and emotionally disturbed students ages 6-21 over two summers in academic setting for nearly 200 hours. I have over 3000+ supervised clinical hours, and I have tutored elementary students before as a part of an after-school program.


I took elementary symbolic logic in college. Additionally, philosophy was a part of my major. I am also currently studying case studies to become a management consultant.


I took intro to marketing as well as consumer behavior in college.

Martial Arts

I am currently a blackbelt in Tae Kwon Do and with extensive knowledge in forms from Gumdo, Hapkido and Judo. I have done martial arts for over eight years.


I worked for one semester in my university's costume shop. There I tailored, rendered patterns, and adjusted costumes. I am able to instruct most sewing machine skills and techniques. I can also teach students most basic hand sewing techniques as well.
