Hello! My name is Yejin (I also go by Jinny) and I’m from Provo, Utah. I’m an undergraduate student at Princeton University interested in chemistry and psychology. In the future, I’m hoping to get into med school. To explore my interests, I’ve worked as a medical assistant and a pharmacy technician.
As the oldest of six kids I’ve been around children my whole life. I started babysitting at a young age and that soon turned into tutoring. I have experience with a variety of kids, ranging anywhere from pre-school to high school students, teaching Korean, English, French, math, science, piano, and music theory. I’ve been a teacher’s assistant at summer math camps and first grade classrooms, and led a MathCounts team for a while. My strongest suit is math, but I also enjoy teaching chemistry.
