Meet our Handpicked Tutors and their Stories

JOSEPHINE KIM


 

  • School: Completed B.A. in History in Wellesley College, Massachusetts, 2020
  • Strength as a tutor: 
    • Multicultural Perspective: As an American Korean who was raised on both coasts of the U.S., I grew up passing through a variety of communities (or lack thereof). However, my global adventures paired with my studies at Wellesley and Dartmouth College [History major, ‘20] forever changed me. The “mix-and-mash” of colorful people and spaces I encountered over recent years have tested and transformed my ideas of what it means to belong and contribute to something beyond our own selves.  
    • Unique Teaching Experience: Over the past 9 years, I have been privileged to teach grades 3-12 in Mexico, China, Taiwan, and my local neighborhood. [Past subjects: theatre, mixed martial arts, English, and arts and craft].
    • Passionate about Interdisciplinary Thinking: Growing up without television, I became fond of books, fine art, music, and playing sports with my friends and siblings. I believe a good education encourages every individual to combine analytical skills with artistic expressions and serve their local communities. 
  • 3 adjectives that best describes you
    • Earnest

    • Ambitious 
  • Extra-curricular activities 
    • When I was in college, I enjoyed traveling and competing with my Varsity Track & Field team. Nowadays, I lift or surf with my siblings. 
    • Especially in quarantine, I appreciate making music with friends and studying languages.
