I am a non-native Korean speaker, so for those who are learning Korean I have experienced directly the same issues as a learner you will have had. My method is a personal one, which takes in to account the needs of the student to offer a bespoke language tuition. I base my classes on what I found useful as a language learner and what I didn't find useful, the techniques I learnt in order to proficiently speak Korean as well as implementing the training I had through qualifying as a teacher at the University of Cambridge.
I am a linguist with over ten years of working in languages. I have been teaching Korean globally for over seven years. I have a degree in the Korean language and lived in South Korea for over three years and a half.
The first session is for free - this is a 30-minute session which will be held over Skype. The first session will not be about teaching you anything new, it will not be a lesson. Rather it will be an opportunity for me to really understand your needs as a student as well as me being able to really understand how I can help you realise your learning goals.
