About Yoonsik


Bio

My name is Yoonsik Oh! When I studied physics at the University of Pennsylvania, my American friends called me Yoonsick, very strong pronunciation in the latter part. I did not like that. Call me Yoonsik, softly in the latter part. Some people mixed up my name and spelled like Yonoski, every character needed were there but in the wrong order. It sounds like a Russian, right?. Enough for my name.

I have a long history of teaching experience. My teaching career starts with my tutoring...

Call me Yoonsik, softly in the latter part. Some people mixed up my name and spelled like Yonoski, every character needed were there but in the wrong order. It sounds like a Russian, right?. Enough for my name.

I have a long history of teaching experience. My teaching career starts with my tutoring experience when I was in college in Korea. I taught students who were preparing for the college entrance exams. I learned that everybody has a different learning style. I learned to be flexible at adjusting my teaching method according to a student's learning style and level. Then I fulfilled my military duty as a physics instructor at the Korean Air Force Academy. Once when I was teaching physics on a hot summer day in a classroom without air conditioning, almost two-thirds of cadets were almost dozing off. So I let them sleep for a while. Five minutes later, I was shocked to find that six stars in total were looking into my classroom through a window, which was an unscheduled tour. To make a long story short, I was ok. However, I learned that before I teach I have to make sure whether students are ready to learn physically and mentally. Also, I have to make sure whether I have their ears or not, in other words, whether I am a likable person to them or not.

When I worked at the Center for Naval Analyses (CNA), I volunteered to tutor students at neighboring high school who had a hard time learning physics and math. From that experience, I had learned that I have to teach from their point of view, not from my point of view. Some common knowledge to me might not be so common to them.

Lastly, I was lucky to have a foreign professor position at the Korea University of Technology and Education. My job was to teach many physics related courses in English. I learned to be patient and tenacious from that experience. Also, I de

He made Physics easy!

I couldn't understand some important physics concept, such as Flux, magnetic fields, and Maxwell's equations. He is very good at explaining things in an easy way, so I can understand many important concepts now. I highly recommend him!
