Introduction: I'm a retired physics professor who is very passionate about teaching physics/mathematics and training a young generation of scientists for independent research and opportunity to participate in science competitions such as Siemens and Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). I hold a PhD in Physics from Columbia University, New York City, NY. I have extensive experience in advising and working with top IT industries such as Samsung and LG Electronics in the area of emerging technology and digitization of the health care, and partnering with renowned universities for brain science research. I have over 35+ years of teaching physics and mathematics from all levels of education (middle school students to graduate/post-doctoral fellows) at various program settings. I designed various curricular and non-curricular activities for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) inspired students. I also chaired Korea Physics Olympiad program and was responsible for recruiting, selecting and training teams each year to compete in the International Physics Olympiad Competition. Whether you are pursuing advanced science/engineering degree, interested in emerging technologies, or preparing for tests or AP exams, I can help. I'm good at breaking down hard and technical concepts into simple terms and explaining each step with real life examples so that it makes sense. I love teaching and I care about student's success and I'm willing to go an extra mile until you feel comfortable with the subject.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My first step is to get to know the student and instill confidence by helping to grasp the general/core concepts down first. I strongly believe every student learns in their own unique way and I love spending extra time utilizing multiple ways of teaching, demonstrating, and providing real-life examples to break down abstract concepts into simplest terms/forms.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I hold a PhD in Physics from Columbia University.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I am a retired physics professor who worked at Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST) in Daejeon, South Korea since 1986. After retiring last year, I moved to stateside and I have been looking for opportunities to connect students and young scientists/engineers. I love teaching science and mathematics. Learning never stops!
