About Say

Hello!

My name is Say. I have B.A. in History and Social Studies Education from the University of Maine, Orono and a Masters in International Relations from Yonsei University, Seoul, S. Korea.

I spent more than ten years tutoring English, Writing, Reading, Critical Thinking Skills to Korean elementary and middle school students. I also taught English as a Second Language to k-12 students and adults.

I am passionate about teaching and about helping the learner master his/her skills. Nowadays, I am teaching studying skills to children to prepare for the Common Core tests in ELA and Math. These tests require specific strategies that can be taught to all students.

I believe each student has the power within him or her to learn, enjoy and achieve, and my goal is to provide the specific methods by which they can grow. Some students need reteaching of the fundamentals concepts; others need strategies to know how to use what they knows.

Students and parents both comment on my passion, sincerity and results.

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.

American History

I have a B.A and M.A. in American History and International Relations.

Public Speaking

I have been lecturing around the world since 2007. I gave my first public speech in S. Korea on "What is the difference between deep breathing and chest breathing?" I published two books, one on what changes will come after 2012 and another on the benefits of deep breathing. I have given over 30 radio interviews about my books. I also have given numerous coaching workshops on breathing and consciousness.

Social Studies

I have a B.A. in History. I have a M.A. in International Relations, which is the study of international politics, history and governments. I also took 6 courses on social studies education in university with the intention of becoming a social studies teacher. After I completed my masters degree, my first job was to work for the united nations in S. Korea.
