    Teaching Approach

    I strongly believe in a student’s ownership of their own learning. I guide them with hands-on experiences and numerous practices with me. I therefore respect everyone’s unique learning style and pace, with patience and flexibility.

    Program Description

    I developed a 4-week long curriculum for beginners, which covers basic reading and writing of the Korean alphabet (Hangul). After that, students will learn basic sentence structure and grammar using a textbook published by a local university. The textbook helps students to build up their vocabulary and practice useful conversationa l dialogue. Throughout the curriculum, students are able to practice a lot of drills of dialogues and speak conversationa l Korean.

    My curriculum also emphasizes the cultural components including visual and audio learning (movies and songs), a trip to a Korean restaurant, and other cultural events. I believe that mastering a foreign language allows students to experience a richer experience not just of another culture, but also of their own culture, by finding lots of similarities and differences across cultures.

    Teaching Experience

    I have taught 6 years at Korean Community based school to teach adults and kids. I have Ph.D. in Education, graduated from State University of New York (SUNY) in 2001. I worked on my master's thesis on the foreign language teaching and its implications.

    Teacher Training

    I have achieved a Korean teacher's certificate in Los Angeles, CA.
    I have a master of education on teaching a foreign language.
    I have a Ph.D on education.

    Cost of Lessons

    I charge $30 per hour for individual and $35 per group lesson.
    I only teach students who lives in Seattle area or Bainbridge Island unless students are willing to come in to my place. I do not drive and only use public transportatio n. I would prefer students coming to my place at Bainbridge Island neighborhood or willing to meet in the vicinity of Seattle or Bainbridge Island downtown.
