Hello! My love of teaching comes from a family upbringing that emphasized education (My father was a professor, mother a teacher) and a lifelong love of learning. After graduating from Yonsei University (“The Yale of Korea”), through years of tutoring Korean to students, I'm very familiar with the mistakes commonly made by students when learning Korean regarding phonetics, semantics, pragmatics, syntax, phonological and morphological differences. Over the years, I've had the pleasure of helping many students, from elementary/middle/high school students, university, Ph.D pursuers to company employees realize their own potential.

Some linguists say Korean is the second most difficult language followed by Hungarian. However through years of experience and professional know-how, I’ve made learning Korean even more fun and exciting by introducing the lyrics of K-pop and dialogues of K-dramas to students with the introduction of the “Korean Wave” along with the regular textbook curriculum.

Having been raised completely bilingual in Korean and English, I also earned a CELTA (The most widely taken English Language Teaching qualification) from University of Cambridge and have taught English at Seoul National University, YBM and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to many students of all ages from elementary school to company employees.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary (K-6th) students for many years. I also have a teaching certificate from Cambridge University that qualifies me to teach English as a Second Language to non-English speaking students. I know the weaknesses of non-English speaking students very well and can help them improve. I have been told by elementary students who came from abroad that they have greatly improved thanks to my patient and meticulous teaching skills.

Elementary Math

Having taught children for many years, I have the expertise and patience to teach kids, walking them through the process of solving problems.

I graduated from one of the top 3 universities of the nation. With my tutoring, your child will build the skills and confidence to excel in life also. Let's have fun learning math!

ESL/ESOL

Through years of experience teaching English to students, I'm very familiar with the mistakes commonly made by foreign students when learning English regarding phonetics, semantics, pragmatics, syntax, phonological and morphological differences.

I've taught ESL at Seoul National University and YBM in Korea. I also taught at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Japan. I was voted most popular instructor by students for my innovative teaching materials and dynamic teaching style.

Through the CELTA (internationally recognized English teaching course from Cambridge University), I'm well-equipped with essential teaching methods/meticulous planning skills for teaching ESL.

I’m also a certified Social Worker and I have extensive experience dealing with students who have learning disabilities, handicaps, delinquents as well as career-focused mentoring.

My students have told me I helped them improve their English greatly and especially appreciate my correcting their mistakes on the spot instead of letting them make the same mistake over and over again. Let's have fun while learning English!

Korean

After graduating from Yonsei University (“The Yale of Korea”), I've had years of experience tutoring Korean to students with the Korean Language Institute program. I'm very familiar with the mistakes commonly made by students when learning Korean regarding phonetics, semantics, pragmatics, syntax, phonological and morphological differences. Over the years, I've had the pleasure of helping many students, from elementary/middle/high school students, university, Ph.D pursuers to company employees realize their own potential.
