I provide interesting discussion in English on a variety of conversational topics (politics, business, art, philosophy, movies, music, American pop culture, etc.). I will help you pass the TESOL, TOEIC, IELTS etc. with proper answer strategies. I proofread papers, homework, creative writing, and important documents with proper syntax and grammar. I provide in-depth interview preparation and practice. I provide pronunciation corrections and vocabulary.
I am a qualified and competent instructor who enjoys helping people. I am familiar with the important role learning plays within the global community and I believe that my teaching experience has helped me learn to communicate internationally, to assimilate different culture's beliefs into my own, and to discover much about my place in the world. I believe my creative talents, my specialized degree, and my international experience would be an asset to any student. I believe I can contribute to your English studies with diligence and honesty.
I have a BFA in Book Arts from the Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland, Oregon (USA). I studied bookbinding, printmaking, creative writing/editing, and painting with a focus on craft. My interests include bookmaking, art, spirituality, dancing, reading, writing, poetry, cooking, travelling, meditation, film, music, and friendship.

My courses included writing, spelling, and reading, as well as cooking and art classes. In 2011, I was a one-to-one tutor at YBM Premiere 1 to 1(South Korea).
