I am a college-level instructor who has experience working with international students. I have a degree in international relations and was an East Asian specialist for the government. During my undergraduate years, I was a student officer for the International Student Program and worked with international students from over 19 countries in the program who were attending college there. I also worked with the Korean and Chinese churches in the community at that time.
I have been teaching for the last 12 years in areas that have ranged from college courses to subject matter expert courses. I speak Korean and Spanish, and have tutored Spanish-speaking, Korean-speaking, and Chinese-speaking students in English language and their homework. I enjoy working with those from the international community and can often relate with my students due to my own experiences traveling abroad and my education. I still have friends from those who I met and worked with years ago. I look forward to meeting new students and making new friends!
I have been tutoring and working with Spanish-speaking and Korean-speaking children since 1990. I worked on Saturdays in Texas with a San Angelo school to get Spanish speaking children up to grade-level requirements for their ages in primary education. I have tutored Koreans of all ages, to include PhD level professors who were visiting professors.
I read, speak, and write Korean, which makes it an easier transition for Koreans who are wanting to learn English. I attended the Defense Language Institute, Yonsei University, and Inlingua Institute for Korean language. I have lived in Korea, where I lived off of the local economy, took marital arts, and attended college. I have also helped with Korean churches located in the United States, and worked various part-time jobs fore Koreans while attending college.
I know what it is like to learn a new language and the struggles that come with it. I can also relate to the freedom that learning a new language gives you when relocating to a new environment. I also know what it is like to have a spouse or loved one where there is a language barrier. I enjoy learning about others and their experiences and have fun working with those who are also interested in learning mine. I also want to make it fun. When you are having fun doing something, you are more likely to continue doing it.

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.
I attended the Advanced Korean Language Program, Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea, 1990 and the Basic Korean Language Program - Defense Language Institute, Monterey, CA, 1989. I attended the Inlingua Institute for advanced Korean language in 997. I also currently teach Korean for the Pensacola State College as an Adjunct.
