Private tutor in Gaithersburg, MD
Sophomore 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.
I 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. During my time at Montgomery College I have taken the following classes: English 101 and 102 Psychology 102, 203, 204 Intro to World Lit Honors World History 1500-Present Honors World Music Honors Philosophy 201 Honors Anthropology 101 Honors Criminal Justice 110 Statistics 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.

I 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.
