(ONLY ONLINE TEACHING AVAILABLE) Hi. I graduated from King's College, majoring in European Politics and now interning at the EU delegation to South Korea. I have five years of teaching experience from 2014. I have led a Korean class of 15 students for a couple of months in Croydon, teaching advanced students. Besides I tutored two English 6th Form girls who were very beginners in Korean and after one year they have become very much confident in writing and speaking Korean. I also was an event organiser of Korean Camp in London where students in the UK who love Korea gather and experience cultures and learn Korean. I organised the Korean lessons for them and taught them how to dance K-pop. I also led a small Korean intermediate class of 4 6th form students at home for two months. I am currently tutoring four beginner students (one via Skype and three face-to-face).

I believe that one needs more intensive and repetitive approach. Nowadays, you have tons of videos and apps that help you learn Korean. Then, why even bother having a tutor? It's because you need to absorb, practice, and breath with the words/grammars you've learned and make it stick to you forever. Korean is, at the end of the day, not your first language so it is almost impossible to pick up a language without literally drumming it into your head. One, therefore, needs a repetitive, memorizing and homework-based teaching to really improve the level of Korean. (and any other languages)
Also, I studied abroad a couple of years ago. I barely spoke English and I felt so lost as I barely understood what my friends said, let alone what my teachers said. From my own experience, My approach to teaching (as I did to my two students before) is this: grammar needs to come first. One needs to have pillars before you build a house. I think grammar acts as pillars because once I understood the basic English grammars, It really began to pick up speed and soon studying English has become a fun activity. For me, being able to converse in English was really fun and motivating to me and whenever I talked to English speakers, I felt so excited and motivated to study more. I would like to, therefore, help you build the grammars and motivate you alongside by chatting with you in Korean (and correct your pronunciations and accent, too)
I enjoy teaching: - ) and I have confidence that I can lead you to the right path.
