My professional fields include teaching ESL and Korean. Currently, I'm an ESL tutor at Kitsap Adult Center for Education, working with adult ESL students, and am teaching Korean to young Korean children.
I appreciate an opportunity to teach you as an ESL or Korean tutor. Acquiring a new language can be a lifelong learning process for many; however, with practice and persistent efforts, considerable fluency can be achieved. I have a wide range of theoretical knowledge relevant to language teaching learned from school and years of teaching experience. I also have an understanding of how hard learning a new language could be and am well aware of possible language learning difficulties. Thus, I truly believe that I can make a positive contribution to you in learning a target language, and I would like to be part of your journey of learning.
