About Kisu

Hello,

My name is Steve and I am private Korean tutor. I studied Korean linguistics during college and have been teaching Korean as a second/foreign language for over ten years. SLA (Second Language Acquisition) is one of my areas of interest as I enjoy teaching people new languages and observing different learning patterns.

I am fluent in English and I feel that this will be beneficial to students in many different aspects. I am able to explain detailed concepts of the Korean language in English and avoid any confusion that may possibly arise because of language barriers.

I am a caring tutor that caters to each individual student. Each student has a different learning style and I adapt my lessons to fit the needs of each student. I am patient and always willing to help the student in every way possible.

Teaching Korean has truly been a great experience for me from both a professional and personal standpoint; I hope to share my language and culture with many more students in the future.

Please feel free to contact me anytime to inquire about lessons.
Thank you

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.

Basketball

I have been playing basketball since I was 7 year old, and have played on many different teams and leagues. I understand the shooting concepts, different defense methods, different offensive tactics, and the overall fundamentals of the game. I have competed and won first place in many different tournaments, such as the Nike 3on3 tournament, the Gus Macker 3on3 tournament, and various other 5on5 tournaments. I also have experience coaching basketball. I coached in several different junior leagues and was able to show kids the fundamentals of the game. I don't consider basketball just a sport that I can play, but a sport that I definitely understand the "science" of and am able to explain the science and fundamentals to someone. For these various reasons, I feel that I am definitely competent to assist someone with basketball.

Microsoft Word

I have completed Word training at various computer schools. I have also used Word often for various types of projects and reports. I am familiar with both the technical and practical use of the program. I am experienced with using features that are not commonly used by the average person.
