Our Testimonials

Dongmin Pak Graduate student at Stanford University

As a volunteer tutor, the most meaningful moment was when students told me they got better grades in math thanks to my help. I observed that they have strong passion in studying but they just could not do so due to a lack of educational opportunities. Their strong passion in studying made me look back on my childhood, which was full of science and engineering. Thanks to their great passion, I also regained my passion in learning and education. As a result, this experience made me study my major, electrical engineering, further and made me get admitted to Stanford University.

I highly recommend you to participate in Intellichoice as a student and a volunteer. This is because, if you participate as a student, you are taught by enthusiastic and well-educated volunteers. Therefore, if you have questions, you can resolve those right away by asking questions to volunteers. And, if you participate as a volunteer, you will feel rewarded teaching children who need help in math. Plus, you will get teaching experiences as well.

By working as a volunteer, I learned that donating money to society is not the only way to contribute to society. As a college student, I believed that I also could contribute to society by donating my ability in math. Therefore, I was fulfilled that I could teach math to students. Through this experience, I was able to regain my passion in learning and I also found the way I can contribute to society.

Finally, I really want to thank Prof. Lee and Intellichoice for giving me this wonderful experience. [Written in May 2016 ]

* Dongmin Pak had been a volunteer at Martin Luther King Jr. public library from Jan. 2014 to Dec. 2015 while he was an undergraduate student at UT Dallas. He got admission into Stanford University with full tuition scholarship and room and board for his graduate study.

Jinhong Kim Graduate student at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign

Every weekend, I taught math to the children who came from parents that were considered minority. Most of students received better grades after attending the tutor program and it offered them to have strong impetus to study hard. I could encourage them to concentrate on what they should do and prepare for their future. Volunteering at the IntelliChoice is the perfect vehicle to discover something you are really good at and develop a new skill. It is never too late to learn new skills and no reason why you should stop adding to your knowledge just because you are in employment or have finished education. This experience helped me obtain a unique perspective that not many people could learn, and also opened my eyes to the importance of education and passion. Again, I really appreciate to work with Prof. Lee and it was an excellent opportunity and experience to expand my horizon. [Written in May 2016 ]

* Jinhong Kim had been a volunteer at Skyline public library from Sept. 2013 to Feb. 2015 while he was an undergraduate student at UT Dallas. He got admission into the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign.

Bonhyun Ku Graduate Student at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign

Besides school, I had an opportunity to teach mathematics to underprivileged children for free through a non-profit organization called IntelliChoice. During that time, one thing that was brought to my attention was the inequality of education in the United States. Upon realizing this, I became determined to help resolve this issue through the free math tutoring program. Every week I have found myself enjoying teaching and observing students build their mathematical knowledge. As I continue my commitment toward this cause, first as a volunteer, and later as a manager, my goal through this community service is to provide all students with equal access to education. I do appreciate Prof. Gil S. Lee and IntelliChoice providing me this valuable opportunity, and I thank all the volunteers who had worked with me. [Written in September 2017 ]

* Bonhyun had been a volunteer at the Vietnamese Community Center (VCC Branch) from Sept. 2015 to May. 2017 while he was an undergraduate student at UT Dallas. He got admission into the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign (UIUC) with full tuition scholarship and stipend. He is also a recipient of scholarship from Kwanjeong Education Foundation in Korea.
