As someone who has tutored for the past 8 years, I am very comfortable with students of all ages and subject levels. I am patient and I strive to help the student understand the subject matter. Although I have my own method of tutoring students, I am very open to discussing how I could help the student more. I am also open to negotiating the final price of the tutoring sessions depending on hours, special needs, etc. I have extensive experience with tutoring students of all ages.

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.
I have a lot of experience tutoring elementary school students and helping them with homework. I like to set their homework and classroom activities as a guide, but I frequently teach relevant materials that help them to extrapolate the information and prepare them to think outside the box.
I have extensive experience with preparing students for their SSAT and ISEE exams (lower, middle and upper levels). I help the students master effective methods of reading and solving problems in the verbal section as well as help them develop good structure and ideas for the writing portion. As for the math section, I first teach the most commonly seen topics in the exams, including algebraic equations, shapes, coordinate system, metric system, whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percentages, word problems, etc. As we work through the different concepts, I also help build confidence and try to engage them in various ways to show them that learning new and advanced topics is fun.
I am fluent in Korean - I can read, speak, and write fluently. I am able to tutor students in beginning, intermediate, and/or advanced levels. I have taught Korean to two students and we worked on vocabulary, grammar, sentence completions, and essays.
When I was in high school, I used to be afraid of public speaking. However, through multiple opportunities to speak in front of the public, I have become a very efficient presenter who can not only speak comfortably in front of people, but also exhibit good public speaking skills. I can help students to overcome the fear of public speaking and advance their body language, eye contact, etc., to improve effectiveness.
As someone who graduated from college in three years, I have excellent organizational skills and very efficient time management skills. I am able to help students schedule their time to be more effective, but at the same time, set time aside for leisure activities. I can help students to find methods of studying that work for them and the environment that is most beneficial specifically to them.
