DePaul University, Chicago, IL (Public Communication)
Teaching is a way that I show students that I care about their future. I teach because it is fulfilling to see that 'aha' moment on a student's face when they've mastered a challenge. I love helping students to meet their goals and realize their full potential.
I specialize in tutoring English and EFL. I taught EFL to children and adults in South Korea for 3 years. I have prepared students for taking the CSAT (College Scholastic Ability Test) and TOEIC. I also teach young learners of English phonics and pronunciation. In Chicago, I have tutored adults in ESL, helping them to improve grammar and writing.
My goal for each student is to challenge them with attainable, measurable benchmarks. I want students to enjoy learning, therefore I strive to provide accessible and engaging lessons. I want to help students build confidence as well as their knowledge.
I am generally available Monday - Thursday 9am-9pm. I can travel to students within Chicago or meet them on-line. My rate is $50/hour.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your academic goals!

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 have helped many young Korean adults gain confidence and proficiency in preparation for their IELTS speaking test. While living in Korea, I provided regular speaking classes, (one-on-one and group lessons) to Korean students who were preparing to study and work in Australia, the UK and the USA. Prior to our lessons, I would inform students to brainstorm their thoughts about 3-5 different topics that I would preselect. During our lesson, I would randomly select one topic among the pre-selected options for them to speak about. After their speech/discussion, I provided constructive feedback about grammar, sentence structure, main ideas and supporting details. Over several weeks, students became more comfortable organizing their thoughts as well as speaking spontaneously without any topic preparation.
