About me - English
Do you want to learn 'real Korean'? Then you're on the right page!
Hello, I'm teacher Mia and I'm native Korean born in Seoul, Korea and grew up in Korea. I'm an experienced teacher in online speaking classes through thousands of online lessons.
I want to say my strength is a fun lesson. I have various students who've been studying with me for years, and I believe what made them study with me for a long time is that they can improve and have fun in class at the same time. Another strength is patience. Not all students are fast learners, and when that moment comes, I do my best to make the student understand and don't mind explaining and reviewing the same thing again. I would only move on to the next page when I'm sure that a student is keeping up with me.
