« Jung is a fantastic instructor. He has a flair for mathematics that I have never seen before from any math teacher. In studying with him, Jung has tailored each and every lesson to me and will always reach out for feedback to make my learning experience better. He has a unique style of teaching which combines just the right amount of casualness -- which I have never seen before in the likes of any mathematics instructor -- with serious, effectual explanations. Furthermore, his credentials in mathematics are numerous: among others, he is a USAMO qualifier. I have seen (and worked with) many olympiad qualifiers in the past, but Jung is one of the greatest teachers of them all. »

Veteran Math Tutor - School, SAT, ACT, Math Olympiads, and more! USAMO Qualifier

Methodology

I primarily teach high school and middle school students, but have taught college students as well. My vision as a private educator is to debunk the "math talent" myth. With the right method and communication, I truly believe that anyone can enjoy and learn mathematics.

My teaching style shifts student to student. Not everyone learns the same and over the years, I've learned to adapt to different levels of students. When I teach advanced students, I like to teach more abstractly. When I teach struggling students, I make sure to reestablish foundations before moving onto their current subject.

Background

I graduated from UC Irvine after studying math and economics. Initially, I worked in finance, but transitioned to private education. I taught every level of high school mathematics, ranging from Algebra to AP Calculus. I also teach SAT, SAT Subject Test: Mathematics, ACT, and coach Math Olympiads.

After a few years of teaching, I worked in curriculum design and development. I've written lessons, questions, and practice exams for the SAT, ACT, and math competitions.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $100/h
