I would describe my teaching method as practice based rather than lecture focused. Each course depends on the student's needs and level of proficiency. Most of the time I try to show letters, presentations(such as pictures and words), and encourage students to speak in the target language. In short, I think my teaching style and approach will help a lot students with some prior knowledges and learning experiences who are currently looking for speaking and writing practices.

BA in Korean Language and Literature
Master of Psychology

I love learning other languages, like Spanish!
Growing herb plants to brighten my desk.
I'm also a bit of a train geek. I love to know anything about trains and subways. Especially when I travel and commute.
