Peace K

Teaching Experience: I am an SAT/ACT/ISEE/SSAT tutor for a private test prep company, but I always feel like a bit of my soul is going away because test prep is such a ruthless business. I have been there for the last year and a half. In addition to that, I have been a member of a language exchange program in which I speak English with my peers, and talk back to me in Korean and/or Japanese. We're all here to help each other learn, and that's what I want everyone to understand and know.

Interests: I love reading! I read a multitude of different books, from manga to history books to fiction (all forms). I love hiking, because it is an incredibly fun sport. I enjoy swimming, basketball, and especially soccer (or football in everywhere but America!) I am an avid television watcher. Years of my life must have been spent killing brain cells by watching television shows that are absolutely terrible for me and my brain, you know? I also enjoy debating about a multitude of topics from current politics to social reform/welfare, and anything in between. I really just like to talk as well- I'm a bit of a chatterbox.

Education: I went to the Hotchkiss School (which is a New England boarding school) for high school, and am currently a student at NYU Tisch School of the Arts double majoring in East Asian Studies and Dramatic Writing. I am currently in Seoul, South Korea learning Korean for the summer and will be returning to the U.S. in the fall in order to continue my schooling. I plan on becoming an international lawyer, with a focus in (can you guess?) East Asia, primarily Japan and Korea, along with U.S. relations to these countries.
