Each of the 7 weeks of summer, we shine a spotlight on one of our hard-working teachers who inspire us with their dedication to their students.
For Week 5, we chose Ethan Kim to be our Teacher of the Week!
Meet Ethan Kim
As Math Lab Coordinator, Ethan also teaches SAT, ACT, H.S. Honors, and Exam Prep 8.
His love for his students and passion for math inspires us educators everyday!
Quote from Ethan:
“Seeing students improve is one of the greatest feelings. I help students improve by following a simply philosophy: If you like something, you tend to get better at it. If you become better at something, you tend to like it even more. At MEK, students learn to enjoy math in order to get better, and as they get better, they like it even more.”
Quotes from Ethan’s students:
“Mr. Ethan Kim is a very enthusiastic and humorous teacher. He makes math fun.”
– Andrew C. (Exam Prep 8)
“He can keep a class working while still introducing some fun. His advice to not get down because of one score has helped me to stay level-headed through hard tests.”
– Olivia (SAT A)
“There is never a dull moment in his class. He always keeps us engaged and on our toes.”
– Sisley C. (Exam Prep 8)
“He goes over the whole test and explains each question in the fastest and most effective way possible.”
– Renee D. (SAT B)
Way to go, Ethan!
MEK is proud of our Teacher of the Week. We can’t wait to see what you’ll do next!
