Northeastern Illinois University (Music Performance)
I have studied in music performance (Classical Guitar) in college and have been working as a music teacher and recitalist in Chicago area for 5 years. In the meantime, I was also working as a Korean tutor. During my academic year in college, I have twice won second prize in the Society of American Musicians competition and received many scholarship awards throughout pursuing my degree. I enjoy teaching so much and love to spend time with students talking about lesson related subjects for both music and Korean. I like to listen to my students' idea and try to answer to their questions. I respect all my students and try all my best to have them achieve their goals. I am confident that my teaching method and knowledge will help anyone who studies with me.
I was born in Korea and moved to the United States when I was 14 in 2006. I went to high school and college in the United States. I am a native Korean speaker, so I was able to help people learning Korean when I was in high school, and have been working as a Korean tutor since freshman year in college. I know both Korean and American culture, and that makes me become a better teacher. I exactly know how to approach to students who live in American culture and teach them not only Korean language but Korean culture in appropriate way as well.
I have finished my bachelor's degree in Music Performance at Northeastern Illinois University. My major instrument is a Classical Guitar. During the academic year, I studied music theory, music history, sight singing, piano, composition, conducting, and guitar. I have been giving private and group lessons for guitar and music theory for 5 years. All my students are very happy with their progression on guitar skills and expending their musical knowledge.
I have done lots of research on teaching properly and learning properly so both teacher and students can maximize their ability in learning to fulfill their pursuing goal. I can help all my students seeing themselves progressing and will make them enjoy the lesson. I will encourage and compliment all my students to keeping them motivated therefore, the students could bring out the very best result.
