Hi!

I truly believe that knowledge is power! Although I am finished with school, I consider myself a lifelong student myself - I continue to learn and teach myself new things everyday!

I've had tutoring experience starting from high school. I was in Math Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society, and I also tutored my younger brother with his homework and making worksheets to teach him Korean. I studied New Media/Digital Art in college, and work as an Office Manager and Graphic Artist, so I can teach drawing, painting, cartooning, basic computer skills, Adobe Photoshop, etc.

I also have experience tutoring in Algebra, and Geometry, and have always loved to read, so I can help your child in reading as well. I hope you consider me for a position! Please contact me for any questions. Thank you!

Very knowledgeable

I had my first drawing lesson with Da som today. It was definitely a success. She has great talent, and showed me how to get started with a project that I’m working on for the first time.

Lynne, 1 lesson with Da Som

Great first session

I could see when I walked up that my son was getting along with her and engaging. He was positive and happy to go again next week. I have great hops of the future.
