I am a graduate of Union College, Schenectady, NY. I also studied Shakespeare/Directing at BADA, British American Drama Academy, London, UK. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Theater & English with a Dance and Directing concentration. Since graduation, I have traveled extensively, throughout the US-Los Angeles, CA; Seattle, WA; New York(multiple cities); Georgia (multiple cities) tutoring children Korean age 4-14 and adult learners. I have taught through private school programs primarily in Seoul, South Korea; I am a certified Personal Training Instructor which allowed me the opportunity to have taught ESL based Group Exercise classes as well, for students from all over the world. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about English, Literature & Theater as they relate to Business English, which was the focal point of my ESL teaching for close to 3 years. Great performers can sell themselves during class presentations, job interviews, and in meetings. In my experience helping struggling students prepare for exams, study abroad programs, job interviews, work promotions, and or auditions is the most rewarding! I have also been nominated and earned Top Teacher Credits from institutes such as WSI, Wall Street Institute, and Pagoda. During my time with these schools I taught 1:1 tutoring courses; Business English; and was a sought after Level Tester. My students and I always seem to have the most fun throwing in real life scenarios as well as using the curriculum! I have an especially high tolerance or patience level for shy learners who may prefer written communication over verbal. One of my most famous cases is singing and acting sensation YeAra aka Jiyoung Sunt. She went from being a shy, young student to a Pop singer and most recently made her debut in musical theater as Abigail from The Crucible.
