Yeonkyoung No

My name is Yeonkyoung No, but you can call me Eileen!

I’ve grown up all around the world: Korea, Japan, California, Saipan, China, and Michigan. I graduated from Saipan International School as salutatorian and attended the University of Michigan where I studied Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE), and Business Administration. I am a multi-term dean’s list recipient as well as a James B Angell Scholar.

I received 5’s on the following AP Tests: Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, English Language and Composition, Psychology, Seminar, US Government and Politics, and Statistics. I received 4’s on AP Literature and Composition, Research, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, United States History, and Human Geography.  I was the first AP Capstone Scholar on my island!

I love to read, write, and just over analyze everything around me. I believe that anyone can learn anything, they just need to put their mind to it and apply the best method for their success! I strongly believe that everyone has their own unique talents and gifts and look forward to helping cultivate them. I’ve taught SAT for almost 4 years in both South Korea and the US, and was able to work with a wide variety of students from different cultural and educational backgrounds.

I’ve continued my passion for teaching all throughout college, co-instructing the Diversity and Politics class and working as a Leadership Teaching Fellow under the Barger Leadership Institute. I’ve also provided hundreds of students free English and writing classes during weekends or afterschool and assisted many in learning more about college and higher education.

I am currently working as a paralegal at a Law Firm in Houston, where I am hoping to gain more experience before I attend law school.
