About Jina

Hello! My name is Jina.

I was born and raised in Korea until I was 12 years old. I came to US with my loving sister, 15 years ago. I lived in these two very different countries for fairly equal amount of my life.

I am thankful for my parents who always taught me the importance of being aware of my own culture and being fluent in my own language, because it determines who I am.

I am active and outgoing person. I do enjoy interacting with people and building relationships. I have experiences in tutoring English from elementary school students up to high school students in Korea as a freelance for the past few years during summer vacation. I had great relationship with the students and especially with their parents. I still keep in touch with my previous clients and at every visit to Korea, we always have great time catching up.

Most importantly, I can do more than teaching a language. Language is part of the culture, therefore I believe adopting the culture along technically learning the language is essential. One of the privileges I have as a immigrant generation is, I know what it is to live as Korean and as American.

"I will bring Korea to you."

Sincerely,

Jina

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.
