About STEPHANIE


My personal appreciation in mentoring, teaching, and in education at large, collectively guided me to the successful path of my professional work. I have readily available and extensive knowledge through my exceptionally committed academic career in Science.
After my Bachelors in Health Science from Stony Brook Univ., continued onto a Graduate level studies in Biology. Then I pursued my curiosity in medicine even further and got myself accepted into a medical school. Currently, I am taking some personal time to trace back to my basics, my natural affinity, which has always been teaching.

I began as a humble self-employed college student tutor in core academic subjects (Algebra I, II, Geometry, Pre-Algebra) for a few local Elementary, Jr. High, and High School students (Long Island, NY). I actively expanded my range of tutoring in different subjects in variety settings (one-on-one, group, and classroom) since and enjoyed every success and opportunity. I have years of teaching/tutoring experience in Private After-School Programs (Queens, NY), summer programs, notably SAT II Biology for special elite NY high school (Stuyvesant) students. During my Graduate student years, I had a chance to be a Teaching Assistant for Undergraduate Biology courses and labs. I joined the school’s Tutoring Service Dept. to be the Graduate Science Tutor and tutored specifically in Undergraduate level Biology, Pre-Calculus, College level Math, and Statistics.

As an individual, I take pride in becoming such a multifaceted character, adept and sensible in dynamic situations. My responsibilities as a former medical student equipped me with superior style of execution and standards for organization, prioritization, teamwork, independence, and meticulous attention to details.

Because of the combined efforts of my knowledge, versatility and communication skills (verbal, written, and interpersonal), I am certain to be an exceptional mentor to my students.
I assure you that I will deliver my enthusiastic, energetic, and effective style of tutoring via individually tailored lesson structure to each of my students. More importantly, I will consistently maintain my compassion, empathy and patience for them.

I am currently very flexible for the weekday after-school hours (5pm-9pm) and possible weekend hours if requested. In the end, I always somehow make it work with my students and the parents.

I hope to get to know you soon and have the opportunity to guide you in your academic journey. We shall plow through the challenges together, with me actively cheering you on right beside you!

Happy Studying!

Korean

I am perfectly Bilingual in English and Korean.
My language proficiency in Korean is considered ILR Level5 : Native or bilingual, including reading and writing. Originally born and raised in Korea until Sophomore yr. in High School and have been studying and living in New York since.

I have experience in teaching wide range of age and levels.
