Esther's Bio

With a myriad of teaching and tutoring experiences, Ester has worked in both the traditional classroom and one-on-one in topics ranging from English and math to test prep. After Esther received her BS in psychology from UCSD, she moved to Korea to work as an English teacher. There, she worked at an international school, where she taught SAT prep and did college consulting during summer breaks. She then worked at another academy, which focused on preparing international students for study in the US. Her love of tutoring kicked off in high school when she founded a free math tutoring club. "At that time, I found my passion for helping students learn and develop confidence in their abilities." She loves helping others learn—and loves helping them build confidence just as much!

Esther describes her teaching style as a cross between mentoring and guiding. "I believe that all students should have the choice to make their own decisions. I don’t order students or punish them; I give them choices and consequences," she explains. Esther pays close attention to her students' goals and desires, and actively works to help them achieve their goals. "At the same time, I have boundaries and expectations that I believe will help them grow as students and as human beings," she notes. Her belief is that every student walks into her classroom with something to contribute; she aims to help them develop trust in their ability to share those contributions. She is proud to share that, under her guidance, many of her students have scored significantly higher on the SAT!

When Esther was in high school, she enjoyed singing in the school choir and running the math tutoring club. During college, she earned Provost Honors for multiple quarters.

In her spare time, she loves to read, watch movies, and sing. While she adores spending time with her cat, she also enjoys traveling solo.
