About Ellen K.

I am a native Korean speaker who lived in Korea for 20 years and I am currently living in the United States for 6 years.
I am a very friendly teacher :)
I have taught Korean language to preschoolers, middle school students, and adults for 3 years in the United States. Also,I always teach Korean to my local friends in my daily life.

I will make my class as funniest as possible so that you can not only improve Korean language skills, but also enjoy learning Korean. If you like K-pop or K-drama, we can use that as our learning resources.
I will teach you what you want to learn; tell me what you already know and what skills you want to improve so that I can create lesson plans just for you.
And we would eventually have a full conversation in Korean !
Welcome all students who want to enjoy studying with me!

안녕하세요. 저는 한국에서 태어났고 20년동안 살았습니다. 현재 미국에서 6년간 살고 있습니다.
저는 굉장히 친근한 선생님입니다:)
저는 미국에서 유치원생, 중학생, 그리고 어른들에게 한국어를 가르치는 일을 3년동안 했었습니다. 또한 저는 일상생활에서 제 미국친구들에게 한국어를 항상 가르치고 있습니다.

저는 학생들의 한국어 실력을 키우는것 뿐만 아니라 학생들이 한국어 즐겁게 배울 수 있도록 재미있는 수업을 만들것입니다. 만약 학생이 K-pop이나 K-drama를 좋아한다면, 우리의 학습자료로 사용하여 지루하지 않는 재미있는 수업을 만들수도 있습니다. 학생의 한국어 실력에 맞추어 수업계획을 세워 진행 할 것이고, 학생이 원하는 수업을 만들어 줄 계획 입니다. 그리고 마침내 우리가 한국어로 대화 할 수 있기를 소망합니다!
저와 함께 즐기며 공부하실 학생들 모두를 환영합니다!

Ellen is an engaging, organized & thoughtful teacher. My nine year daughter is taking Korean lessons from her, and she looks forward to her time with Ellen each week. She has already learned so much from her! Highly recommend.
