I am a native Korean who was born and grew up in Seoul, S. Korea. I majored in English and English Literature in my undergraduate with the national teaching license in S. Korea, and acquired my masters in Cultural Studies in England. I came to the US in 2011 following my American husband. My English is very good, native-like, although I have a slight British accent (It has been fading away, though).

I taught English at a public high school in S. Korea for about 4 years and have a lot of experience in cross cultural contexts, including language exchange, mediating between ESL teachers and Korean school authorities. I helped personally many American friends of mine for translating while I was in S. Korea, as well.

I am privileged to have met (and am still meeting) so many wonderful students of all age and cultural backgrounds since I came here and began teaching Korean to Korean learners as a second language. Many of these students became my long time clients because they are very satisfied with the quality of my lesson, and some of them became my good friends. My lesson is highly efficient, well-planned and organized, learner-centered, communication-oriented, adjusted to diverse individual needs and learning styles.

I am nice, sincere and try to make people comfortable. I am an efficient teacher as well as a good friend. I personally spent a lot of time teaching my own husband Korean so he could communicate with my family. I am so excited to meet you and explore the interesting world of Korean language together in the most relevant and communication-oriented way.

Korean

I am a professional Korean translator/interpreter with extensive experience in the field of cultural awareness. I am a native speaker of Korean, born and raised in Korea. I studied in England and acquired a Master's degree in Cultural Studies. I worked as a mediator between native speakers of English and Korean, translating and promoting understanding between two very different cultures, in the Korean education sector for a number of years. I am punctual, accurate, and take full responsibility of my work until its successful completion.

Fantastic Korean tutor!! — Saehee is absolutely amazing. Not only is she an expert on Korean language and culture (something that is not always true even from native speakers!), she's also incredibly thorough and patient. She knows the ins and outs of the language, and has plenty of experience teaching people who have a hard time with some of the sounds (like me!). I love her personal examples and stories that she uses to ...
