Bio

I have been teaching ESL courses for six years. I taught academic and professional writing, speaking, grammar, and reading in South Korea. I spent one year and a half teaching different levels in select ESL programs before opening my own English tutoring business. I taught classes that ranged in size from five to forty students per class. I also offered one-to-one tutoring services.

I have been teaching ESL courses for six years. I taught academic and professional writing, speaking, grammar, and reading in South Korea. I spent one year and a half teaching different levels in select ESL programs before opening my own English tutoring business. I taught classes that ranged in size from five to forty students per class. I also offered one-to-one tutoring services.

I specialize in writing, and have assisted students of various ages and levels in gaining acceptance to institutions or professional opportunities. I have ample experience developing challenging yet level-appropriate curriculum. The focus of my classes have varied from business English, literary studies, and grammatically directed speaking to reading and listening, and pronunciation and elocution. I also have experience teaching students with special needs.

Over the course of my stay in Korea, I became an intermediate Korean speaker. Being a second language learner myself has given me valuable insight into the ESL student experience. Furthermore, understanding the grammatical differences and similarities between English and Korean allowed me to better instruct my students in their transition to English conversation and writing.

I approach teaching with two purposes in mind. First, to instruct students in American standard English, urging them towards a higher level of competency which is required for educational and professional advancement. Second, to introduce topics and elements of interest that allow students to enjoy the language holistically. By treating English both as a topic of study and as a living language, I have assisted dozens of students in not only raising scores and writing better essays, but also in developing a sense of ownership over their second language.

TEFL certified. B.A. English Literature with a Writing focus. Studied Writing at Sarah Lawrence College. Studied Literature at Lewis and Clark College. English School Owner for five years. Developed unique and varied curriculum for students, ages 5 years to 65 years. Experience with TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, Interview, Essay Writing, Applications, Business English, Medical English, Phonics, Grammar, and Conversation.

If you'd like to see some sample lesson plans, please contact me and I'd be happy to submit them to you. In addition, I firmly believe an initial assessment must be made before a lesson takes place, so that I may tailor a plan that specifically meets the student's needs. If you'd like to discuss the needs of your particular student, or if you are the student, I welcome exploring how your goals can best be met.
