Bio

I am familiar with the difficulties in learning English as either a 1st or 2nd language. I am bilingual in both Korean and English. I have taught English abroad in Korea for 4 years. I also specialize in pronunciation and help students enunciate words more accurately. I am able to help students understand a word by learning its origin and root to help aid in expanding their vocabulary, instead of simply memorization.

I am familiar with the difficulties in learning English as either a 1st or 2nd language. I am bilingual in both Korean and English. I have taught English abroad in Korea for 4 years. I also specialize in pronunciation and help students enunciate words more accurately. I am able to help students understand a word by learning its origin and root to help aid in expanding their vocabulary, instead of simply memorization. I believe that when you come to 'understand' a word, it becomes part of your vocabulary. I help develop the students creative, critical, and logical thinking skills for reading comprehension and other English/Literature exercises. I love seeing the progress in my students. At first, it is difficult for them to re-train their tongue, but once they catch on, I can see their confidence grow and it brings me great joy!

I can relate with students who are trying to learn a 2nd language. I am bilingual in both Korean and English. I learned English and Korean simultaneously growing up. Instead of memorization I can help link the cultural similarities and differences when learning English. I also, use a etymology learning method when teaching vocabulary skills. I help the students become familiar of the root word and come to understand how that word came about. This helps the students really get to the roots of the word vs. simply memorizing. My detailed personality helps me teach students how to proofread and revise one's work.
