Pharmacist Tutor with 10+ years of tutoring experience. I have B.A in English and Russian from Yonsei University, Seoul South Korea and B.A. in Psychology and PharmD from the Univ. of Kentucky. I started tutoring Korean since 1999 when I studied Russian and English at Yonsei Univ in Seoul, South Korea. I tutored exchange students from the US, Japan, and Russia. I also tutored math and English to middle and high school students throughout my college years since tutoring was really widespread in S. Korea. (just like in the move "Parasite"!) My tutoring continued after I moved to Kentucky to study B.A.in psychology and PharmD. I worked as a reporter at the Korea Times in Los Angeles, so you know my Korean language is very standard and grammatically correct!
My teaching methods are as below: For beginners, I start from "Hangul". According to my experience, it is possible to master this scientific Korean alphabet in a day! So you can call me "Hangul Nazzi," I will have to make you memorize them. For intermediate speakers, I love to incorporate K-pop or K-drama or whatever can make our classes more fun and beneficial. I give vocabulary list ahead before the class, so that students can memorize them. It is a necessary step so that students can apply them by plugging them into structured expressions they are going to learn that day. I have used both "Seoul Univ Korean" and "Yonsei Korean," as basic textbook, but I can prepare my own handouts also to customize learning to students' needs.
I love learning and teaching new languages; It expand the spectrum of your life and to open up your eye to this new world. I hope to start this exciting journey with you!
