About Jun

Greetings,
My name is Jun. I'm a graduate of Dartmouth College where I majored in mathematics. My deep-rooted belief and motto is that your success = my success. I specialize my focus in precalculus and SAT (both normal and subject test) mathematics.

I ensure that all of my students not only achieve their target scores on examinations, but also truly learn the material - enabling them to carry on their new mental frameworks and concepts onwards to collegiate-level mathematics classes. I have utmost respect for my tutoring relationships (both with parents and of course, the tutees); with that in mind, I take my role seriously, as should every tutor.

I have had much experience tutoring inside and extensively outside of Wyzant in SAT/SSAT, Algebra II, Precalculus, and general math. During a few tremendous years up at Dartmouth, I've had the opportunity to tutor my peers in mathematics subjects like linear algebra; I have also worked in the educational services industry in China, where -- despite a slight language barrier -- I taught English, SAT writing and critical reading. I befriend all of my students, mentoring and giving them advice on American life, the college admissions process, etc. I still keep in touch with students even now when I've been back in the states, and I am thankful that the relationships I've formed will be lasting.

Why do I tutor?
While as an undergraduate student, I worked in China in the educational services industry, tutoring aspiring Chinese middle school and high school students in English speaking/writing and on the SAT critical reading and writing sections (both individually and in large-classroom settings). Tutoring for me is just a natural extension of myself, as I thoroughly enjoy interacting with youth, sharing my knowledge and experiences, and having the opportunity to positively influence them for the rest of their lives. I focus on the student's development and consequent success. It's extremely rewarding for me to see my students improve over time.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

I worked in China for a year in the educational consulting industry, which is a rather competitive industry in China. As an educational consultant, I guided students through their college essays, advised on choosing which colleges to apply to and attend, and overall prepared my students' applications to (1) match their personality fit and (2) maximize the best possible college that they could get into. The colleges that my students were accepted to included Northwestern, Rice, Case Western, William and Mary, and UIUC--among other "top-50" national universities. My philosophy in college counseling involves first and foremost getting to know the ins and outs of the student, and then using his/her academic background, life experiences, and test scores to craft an appropriate application profile.
