TERESA SONG © 2018

I have lived in four different countries and have been to seven different schools. Eight, if you include my Alma Mater, The London School of Economics (LSE), where I read Economics. My first job out of university was at Morgan Stanley, where I worked on Mergers & Acquisitions in addition to Equity Research. Here I learned very quickly that time is precious and you never get it back…

 

For more than a decade now, I have been teaching students of all abilities. From those who are deemed impossible, hopeless, to those who are outstanding. For the former, I make the impossible possible and the latter; I push them well beyond their limits. I am responsible for numerous students who were below average or in bottom sets, getting into schools that they were told not to apply to. Taking a student who speaks broken English and getting him into a top ten independent school in London with a scholarship, takes grit, but it is possible and that’s what makes my coaching different.

 

I am not a teacher, I am not a tutor, I am a coach. I get my hands dirty and become involved in almost all aspects of the student’s life. I focus on the present, the future and results. I am extremely results driven and I know what is required to make it. I use unconventional methods that not everyone may agree with or even like, but my coaching is not for everyone. It takes a certain type of student (and parents) to work with me. Every single student I have worked with has seen their life transformed. I do not give up and expect you not to either. 

 

Other facts about me:

 

  • I have been bottom of the class and top of the class. Strangely enough, both had their merits. 
     

  • I am not a huge fan of reading. I prefer to listen, interact and learn by doing. I like summaries and lists…the shorter the better.
     

  • I find studying boring, so I did the minimum amount possible to achieve maximum results. This approach worked for me and I had a lot of fun along the way. 
     

  • My university experience was character building. It was all about getting a job, getting the grades and getting ahead.
     

  • I wanted to be a fashion designer. It didn’t work out, so I went into investment banking. 
     

  • I am a networker. I strongly believe it’s about who you know, not just what. 
     

  • I speak English, Korean, Spanish and basic Mandarin. Adding Russian and Arabic would be great!
     

  • I think education should be optional, but the world doesn’t agree with me. 
     

  • Lastly, I care too much. About everything. My ultimate strength and downfall.
