My native language is English, but I've also studied Korean daily since 2005. I've spent a few years living in Korea as well, and I can speak it fluently. I have a Korean Mastery certificate from B.Y.U. and A.C.T.F.L., in addition to a Bachelor's Degree in the Korean language. Since 2011 I've been teaching Korean to others online. I have a passion for languages and am deeply interested in linguistics.

As an English speaker, I know what it's like to learn a foreign language, especially one as difficult as Korean. Also, as an English speaker I know how to explain Korean concepts easily and clearly, including difficult grammar, idioms, and vocabulary.

I can teach Korean to any level, from reading and writing Hangul (the writing system) up to reading the news in Korean. I also enjoy teaching Korean.

For English, most of my experience is in writing; I can write and proofread essays, explain grammar and vocabulary, and also assist with pronunciation.

In addition to Korean, I can also speak proficient Japanese, basic French, Mandarin, and some Cantonese. For teaching, Korean is definitely my strong point.
