Jisoo Seo

Student Welfare Advisor

Hi! My name is Jisoo, and I am a DPhil student at the Department of Education. I was a teacher before coming to Oxford and now I am studying how spatial reasoning relates to arithmetic word problem solving in young children. In addition to being a Junior Dean at Somerville College, I teach on the PGCE Mathematics Programme, and I am also the president of the Oxford Korean Academic Society. In my free time, I like to travel, browse thrift stores, go to the gym and watch Netflix. My goal for the next two years is to learn Spanish. Feel free to reach out if you think I may support you in any way!

Student Welfare Advisors are available to support students in crisis overnight and at weekends. We provide a listening, support and signposting service.
