I have eighteen years of intercultural experience.

I was fifteen years in South Korea.

cropped-photo6331-e12909152646732.jpgI visited Japan many times.

I have a method that is very much original and amazingly helpful, called Rhythmomnumonics, which helps you remember clauses, phrases and sentences without grammar (but I teach that, too).

Students, parents and educators say I am:

  • fun
  • creative
  • kind
  • diligent
  • humorous
  • well-written
  • well-spoken
  • compassionate
  • a good conversationalist
  • interesting
  • knowledgeable
  • entertaining

I help  you with:

  • style
  • phonics
  • culture
  • grammar
  • conversation
  • pronunciation
  • I can inspire you to learn!
  • I make custom lessons for you….

I am multi-cultural–especially regarding Asia and America (n I have lived in these places) and I use original methods to assist your progress.

I offer:

  • voice skills (I’m a voice actor and comic)
  • listening skills ( I have near-perfect pitch)
  • drawing skills (I’m an artist)
  • I even even write upside-down (this allows me to transcribe notes for you from across the table, so you can read as I teach you.
  • I am familiar with basic Korean and some
  • I focus our lessons on your speech and culture.
  • I teach you the culture of English-speaking locales, so;
  • You you can learn the language comfortably and naturally.

The advice and attention I give you alone will build your skills if you listen to me.

I look forward to helping you.
