My family's experience with the Shine Learning Center is extraordinary. My son, Sam, met Director Jooyeon Kim to prepare the art portfolio for his college application. Director Kim provided Sam with an excellent art program education to develop his taste and skills so he could finish many beautiful art pieces. She also helped him with special care and interest in completing all the college application processes. She communicated closely with me and my wife to keep us updated during the process. Not even the art program, Director Kim guided Sam to overcome difficult times during adolescence, a susceptible age he was going through. As a merit scholarship student, Sam is currently attending the Graphic Design major at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in NYC. He is preparing for a bright future while enjoying a happy college life in the Big Apple! We are so proud of our son, and special thanks to Director Kim and the Shine Learning Center for your dedication and love for Sam and our family. Cheers Shine!!!

I love being a part of Mrs. Mirandas english sat prep class. She goes above and beyond to make sure her students have what they need to succeed and her efforts have definitely helped me! Thanks to her I got a 1540 on my sat! Every class she facilities discussions and encourages us to really understand why the correct answer is really correct instead of only making us do practice or memorize rules, which really helped me get those harder questions on the sat correct, especially for the reading section which I got every question right on. This strategy of hers is what I think makes her a very effective teacher, especially for me. I would definitely reccomend her class for the sat, especially if you are a good student just needing that final little score boost.
