Hi! My name is Judy and I am 32 years old. I have over nine years of teaching experience, including teaching people whose first language is not Korean. I also teach as a teacher in Korea now. I majored in Education and I love teaching my students. I would like to be a teacher who is like a friend. I'm an adventurous type of individual.
I like to discover different things and share my ideas as well. I like meeting different people in all walks of life that's why teaching becomes my passion. It becomes my journey.
When I graduated college, while working as an administrative assistant I realized that I wanted to pursue teaching. I learned that teaching Korean to other nationality would make a big difference and great impact in my personality. Now, I am really enjoying it and I know that I want it to be my permanent career.

I know Korean is an extremely difficult language to learn — some of its grammar rules do not make logical sense. But I assure you that with practice in the form of casual conversation and discussion, you will become a pro in no time. Trust me, I was once in your shoes. I have also dedicated time throughout my life to learn other languages such as Chinese and English. So I am sure I know the feeling of my students as a learner. Life is full of lessons and interesting phenomena. Learning doesn't just stop at college or grad school. Rather, I like to approach everything as a life-long learner, because there are so many diverse topics to learn about and people to learn them from! I believe that you can learn something new from me. Learning casual conversation from the people who speak it everyday is the best way to sound like a true native and fluent in that language. I will do my best so you can make much better sentences and get to know a lot of vocabularies from my class.
