About me

안녕하세요 여러분! Hello everyone!

I am Petriel, NATIVE KOREAN TEACHER, who was born and has lived in Seoul. You can always call me 엘라쌤(Ella-sam). Ella is my nickname and sam is a short word meaning teacher(선생님/sunsangni:m/) in verbal Korean .

Currently, I am in Stockholm Sweden. I came here August 2016 for a master study in sustainable energy engineering and have been living since then. During this winter, I will move to Bogotá, Colombia, yeah! Also, I'm planning to move to Canada maybe in April. It is thrilling to move somewhere new. I'd love to anything new and there are lots of things in the world.

I just joined and am trying to start a great journey with you :)

You will be able to do these with me:

Free conversation

High quality writing or just simple one-liner diary

Traveling without any translator

Watch or Listen K-pop or K-dram without subtitles

Take an examination for the proof of your Korean ability

Have one more best friend in your life - best ever!

Qualifications & Experience

Native Korean

2012-2015 Tutor for high school students - Korean/Mathematics/Counselling

2012-2015 Tutor for a cover letter - university entrance/employment

2016-2018 Korean instructor for 8-11 years old students in 한글 학교(Hangeul School),Stockholm, Sweden

In short, I have experiences with Koreans as well as foreigners. From beginners to advanced level, nothing is impossible with me.

These are just official experiences, but I have taught Korean to many people from different backgrounds. Unofficially, I have experiences with some people who love 한류(Hallyu) - K-pop, K-drama or had a plan for an exchange programme in Korea, and, yes, they always become good friends at the end!

Teaching Approach

First of all, there will be a short survey and test before the first class. This helps me prepare for a personalised class.

Learning methods:

Short clips from movies, animations, news, etc.

Government proved school materials, regardless of subjects - this can be a good option when you may go back to schools in Korea later.

K-pops - old/new

Learning Korean books in market

Previous questions in tests - TOPIK, 수능(Korean university entrance test), etc.

It all depends on you - what you want or how you want. Because I believe a personalised class is the best point of 1:1.

The material is good and easy to work from. I learned that I need to work harder on my numbers and unites. Things are getting really deep now I have a lot of grammar points to remember.
