Welcome! I am an American who owns and runs a sucessful English academy in South Korea. My experience spans over ten years. I have a lot of experience designing incredible lessons for students of all types. I have taught everything from housewives and business men to preschool kids and even North Korean refugees. Whatever your needs may be, I will be sure to fulfill them. My students usually learn a lot but also have fun while doing so!
I am especially strong in preparing students for tests such as OPIC and TOEFL speaking. I focus a large part of my lessons on communication and my students usually increase their speaking skills very quickly. Look forward to meeting you!
I own and run an English academy in Korea. I usually have 40 to 50 students enrolled in my academy. I am responsible to make the curriculum for all lessons. I also regularly consult with students to give them feedback on how they are doing. I frequently reflect upon my students' progress and guide them so that they can continue to improve every month.+ Read More
I started my English teaching career working as a freelance teacher in Asia. I have taught English in a variety of settings and with various students:
1:1 with business workers,
North Korean refugees,
high school students,
group classes with Korean housewives
I have also taught various things such as:
English portion of the Korean SAT,
and so forth.
I have found that working with a variety of students and in various settings has helped make me a more well rounded teacher. I have a large array of teaching skills that I will use in our lessons.
I worked on a Youtube channel called Diveintonewenglish for about three years. I still occasionally upload videos to it. However, in the beginning of 2016 I decided to put more focus into the English academy that I was starting up.
I geared the Youtube channel to Koreans and therefore most of the videos are in Korean. I also tried to make the videos entertaining for people who might usually be reluctant to study English otherwise. My live and online classroom style is more systematic than what you would find in these videos. However, as in the videos I do like to get my students excited about studying English.

Chungdahm English is one of the top English academies in Korea. I worked here for one year. During my time here I gained a lot of effective teaching skills that I then carried over into my personal lessons. The training at Chungdahm was absolutely great.
In the end though I found that I felt most effective when I was in charge of my own lessons. Therefore I decided put more focus on my private lessons after having worked at Chungdahm for one year.
I started my teaching career nearly 10 years ago working as an elementary school teacher assistant. I was required to help students one on one with things such as reading and vocabulary. I have come a long way since then but still this first year of teaching was very important in helping me be where I am today.+ Read More
Before starting to work at an English academy in Korea, I studied for my TESOL certification. I didn't take the TESOL course lightly and studied it very intently. It provided me with a lot of great tools for teaching. It really helped me grow a lot as a teacher. My test examiner said he was very impressed by how well I did on the final examination. I will give you the same dedication as your English teacher.+ Read More
