Highly experienced English instructor (8+ years of writing, homework help, AP, SAT, ACT, and math)
- After living 17 years in the U.S., I gained 8+ years of private tutoring and classroom teaching experience in private academies and foreign language high schools in S. Korea. I have taught 200+ students from ages 5 to 27 with skill levels ranging from beginner to nearly fluent in many subjects. I know how to identify areas of weakness and tailor lessons to individual student's needs in order to make lessons engaging and complex material digestible. I am deeply invested in making sure students learn properly and take great joy in seeing them grow and gain confidence.
- At two private academies, I improved upon and created new curricula for English instruction in:
+ AP Economics (Micro & Macro)
+ AP English Language and Composition
+ College Entrance Essay (brainstorming & editing)
+ Debate & Speech Contests
+ Literature reading & analysis (Pride and Prejudice, Lord of the Flies, Brave New World, The Giver, etc)
+ ESL College Student Homework Help
-Privately, I also tutored adults in PhD application editing and grad school interview preparation (students successfully admitted to PhD programs in U.S. universities).
