EducationSophomore student at Montgomery College Rockville, transferring to University of Maryland, Baltimore Campus for their Social Work program. I intend to earn both my Bachelors and Masters degree in Social Work.
ExperienceI am currently a tutor at the Disability Support Services Center at Montgomery College.
I am a Level I College Reading & Learning Association certified tutor. I am working towards Level II certification and will have attained it by the end of the current semester.
My freshman year at Montgomery College I was a member of the exclusive 25 member Montgomery Scholars Program for the humanities.
This semester I am enrolled in Environmental Biology, General Biology, Sociology, and Political Science.

My SAT score was 1990. (Math: 620, Writing: 620, Reading 750). This score places me approximately in the 93rd percentile nationally for students who have taken the SAT test.
I am very friendly and approachable. My tutoring approach focuses on listening to my tutees during my sessions and asking questions to draw out their input and knowledge. I believe it is important to avoid stifling a student's voice and instead encourage them to develop their thoughts. I want all my students to be able to master the skills they need so they feel confident in their abilities in the future. I love watching students conquer problems and become proficient in the concepts they are being taught.
HobbiesI am an Irish Korean mix and I love to play the piano, read, and drink coffee!
I adore vocabulary and word etymology. Someday I hope to be fluent in Spanish, French, and Persian.
I also play volleyball for Montgomery College so I am very familiar with the challenges that a student athlete faces during the school semester and sports season.
