Bio

From the DC area, Sunhee brings a wide range of experience tutoring on how to prep for the ACT and SAT standardized tests. Throughout high school and college, Sunhee worked with children and teenagers: tutoring inner city children in college and working as a counselor at an overnight camp for disadvantaged youths (the Washington Post and NBC Channel 4 publicized DC Camp 4 Kids). Sunhee returned to the metro area after receiving his BA in Political Science from University of Pittsburgh. In addition to test preparation, his professional experience tutoring includes instructing math through calculus, physics, biology, US history, and world and European history. Future plans likely involve a law degree or graduate work in international relations.

Philosophy

The key to success on the SAT is for an individual to feel the test is accessible. Familiarity with the proper academic concepts is certainly an important means to this end, but breaking from ingrained test-taking habits and understanding the questions from a different perspective are equally valuable. My objective is to show students that with hard work and focus, it is possible to see the SAT in a new light that will allow them to tackle the test with confidence.
