 Great lesson after a brief break! Thanks for picking up where we left off and being patient that I forgot some things. Our lesson covering 을 수 있/없다 was really interesting and opened up a lot of fresh vocabulary and old vocabulary to learn again. Thanks again!

 Finished covering the last lesson's contents and had a go at more examples of listening. Definitely was easier to pick up what was being said in some of the tracks after having a chance to learn and memorise the vocabulary covered at the previous lesson. Was a good confidence booster lesson!

 Began covering using '동안' and its usage. Useful word when composing more complicated sentences and to express more ideas. Lesson was clear and informative as always.

 We reviewed and refreshed a lot of the grammar and vocab covered in the previous lessons to prepare for the more difficult lessons ahead. Lesson was clear concise and valuable to review and cement concepts that I had been taught.

 Wahoo we started next stage! The final listening aside, I felt confident in the majority of the vocab and grammar points explained and even listening to a certain extent. It was good to start off the lesson with more conversational Korean as I need to get out of the habit of panicking when someone is speaking to me and listen better. I'll be listening to that second conversation a lot of times i think haha. Thanks for the great lesson!

About me - English

안녕하세요 여러분! Hello everyone!

I am Petriel, NATIVE KOREAN TEACHER, who was born and raised 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 Brandon, MB, Canada. I came here April 2019 for a new life. I have studied in Sweden for a master programme in sustainable energy engineering and lived for 2.5 years.

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 few questions before our 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


Previous exams - 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.
