About Me

Dear students of Verbling,

I am greatly interested in working with you, primarily in helping the students progress academically and develop the various skills they will need to grow and succeed during their career and beyond. I would welcome any opportunity to be a member of this exciting journey because teaching has been the focus of my career path, as I thrive and cherish in the acts of serving and educating others. In addition, it has been an adventure and learning experience for me regarding how to communicate and understand students needs academically.

Regarding my work experience, I have worked with children of all ages, ethnicities, and cultures, and believe I can apply my experience and knowledge into my curriculum to better connect with and serve this population, including finding and utilizing the students’ strengths and meeting their needs. I have lived and taught English at a private school in South Korea and have also tutored students at Esl schools for about 8 years. I am a hardworking, proficient educator, who excels at creating structured lesson plans. I am flexible and accommodating to ensure each individual student receives the recognition and assistance they need. Further, I have not only taught a variety of subjects for many years, including Martial Arts and music, but I also have a master’s degree in Oriental Medicine, which provides me a special insight of how to create a better, more calming work environment. My resume includes the many skills that provide me the ability to excel in this position, as well as meet the requirements and expectations of the student.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
