A picture of Jong Kim.

I have always been a fan of solving math-related problems. I knew as soon as I have in contact with Physics in my freshman year at USC, this is my passion. I felt obsessed with seeking out unknown. One thing led me to major in Math and Physics. Later I decided to take more science classes such as Astronomy and Chemistry. My passion led me to seek out more education in Math and Physics in graduate schools. I did further studies at UCLA. There I fell in love with teaching. Many highly motivated students at USC and UCLA led to teaching at college level. It has been almost 20 years. The passion still lives on…

I always tell my students, “You cannot learn how to swim until you jump into the water!”
