Hey! I'm Ivey. I am a freelance translator, chilldren's book writer, and a part-time research assistant. I've recently graduated from Emory University with a degree in Media Studies and am planning to attend law school in the coming fall of 2019 to pursue a career in Entertainment Law.
As a Korean-American, I am particularly fascinated by how the Kpop industry and the "Korean Wave" has managed to bridge cultural gaps and garnered global attention. I want to participate in such global conversations, share with students the various aspects of our culture, and help them learn Korean in a fun way. If you are interested, please reach out to me!
It has been 5 months since I've started working with Ivey and I started from simply reading Hangul to writing a short essay in Korean. She is incredibly patient, encouraging, and funny and she structured the lessons in a way that allowed me to start composing sentences after learning the basic structures. I love how she makes her own worksheets and materials and how clearly she can explain the different language concepts between Enligh and Korean. I am planning to go to Korea this summer and I feel really prepared and ready thanks to Ivey.+ Read More
Lively lesson. Wonderful teacher. My son really enjoy it.
My first lesson was a great learning experience and I look forward to many more lessons with my instructor, Ivey E.
I would highly recommend her for any students looking to learn Korean.
She made me feel comfortable speaking korean, very patient & I overall just had a great experience!
Ivey was my ESL tutor in college and later my Korean tutor. I needed to travel to Korea for an internship and she recommended the best books for conversational Korean, helped me with basic Korean skills and she even hooked me up with her friends in Korea for some cultural experience. She is a great tutor and a great person.+ Read More
Ivey has a great sense of humor and is absolutely a delight to work with. I needed Korean lessons to prepare myself for TeachforAmerica in Korea and she made it super enjoyable with her lessons. She utilizes KDrama and Korean songs to supplement listening and conversational Korean. She even took into account some of my favorite Korean bands for supplements in the lessons. She likes to challenge you but makes it fun so it works out at the end. I would definitely recommend her. If you are a KPOP fan, she is your choice.+ Read More
