Teaching Experience: I developed my love for teaching in Korea. I taught elementary school there for 3 years. I have also taught adults in Korea and Bhutanese refugees here in America. They have all been very different experiences, but I've learned a lot about the struggles of those who are trying to learn English. I've also learned how to help students in those situations learn and improve their English.
Interests: Foreign languages is a major interest of mine. I have studied Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Hindi, Persian and Burmese. Studying foreign languages is fun, and it also helps me to teach languages better, since I know what it's like to learn and study a foreign language.
I love to make friends with people from different cultures, as interesting conversations inevitably come up, and there is so much to talk about!
Education: I received my undergraduate degree in economics at Azusa Pacific University in California. About 5 or 6 years after graduating and spending time in Asia, I came back to America to work on getting my master's degree in Teaching, with a certificate in English as a Second Language. If all goes according to plan, I should receive my MAT degree in April 2016.
Spoken Languages: English (Native), Spanish (Conversational), Korean (Basic)
