About the Educational Consultant

Hi, I’m Susan Kong. I’m currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison researching children and adolescent media and positive media effects. I have worked for Seoul Foreign School as an IB (International Baccalaureate) Psychology educator and had a privilege of working with diverse students (from ages 2 to 22). I look forward to talking with you about your unique stories and any coaching needs you have this year!  

I attended the Harvard Graduate School of Education and received an Ed.M. degree in Technology, Innovation, and Education. Then, I returned to Seoul Foreign School as a high school teacher, created academic curriculum, and delved into the International Baccalaureate Diploma program, teaching classes such as IB Psychology and Theory of Knowledge. I am very excited to work with students at QUESTABOX on healthy self-esteem, identity, social impact potentials, and cultural competence (e.g., cultural knowledge & skills related to Korean vs. American cultures, East vs. West, early immigrants' history, generational gaps, historical lenses, and the like). Learning to be aware of who I am, what matters to me, and what I am going to do will be incredibly important to your college and career preparation. Hope to see you soon!

Focus & Expertise

Student Coaching



"My coaching will help students explore, research, and make projects on cultural and historical contexts (e.g., cultural identity, historical contexts, life skills, self-improvement, and/or ethical issues of our society) that would motivate students to be relatable to their college and career prep process.
