Every student has their specific needs and strategies that help them to excel, so I work around each student’s specific needs. I’ve taught the SHSAT for years and have helped my many students gain acceptance to specialized schools, including Bronx High School of Science, and Stuyvesant.

BS in Psychology
I enjoy explaining difficult concepts as simply as possible to help my students succeed. I've helped high schoolers grasp materials on standardized exams by dissecting concepts and explaining concepts in laymens’ terms. I've used mnemonics to improve test scores and turned abstract ideas into relatable stories.

I help students thrive in their studies by explaining difficult concepts and showing how the material we learn can solve problems in the real world. I also love helping students find meaning in school beyond attaining grades. I’ve helped many of my students excel on the SHSAT and gain acceptance to top specialized high schools.

I am so impressed by the thought (and, as importantly) heart that goes into every tutor placement at Gooroo. My son began working with Yoojin from Gooroo in May 2018 in order to get ready for the SHSAT, and she was nothing short of amazing. Her sessions with him were precisely tailored to his needs, and she was firm but kind with him which is exactly what he needed. He scored high enough on the test to qualify for all of the specialized schools, though in the end decided on a general education school in Manhattan. Yoojin then coached my daughter through the 4th grade state tests, and, though they are VERY different children, she immediately found the right approach for Maddie. Yoojin was simply terrific from start to finish. And did I mention she brought a giant box of Levain cookies over to Henry a few days before the test to wish him luck? Lucky to have Yoojin and Gooroo in our life!
