I am an enthusiastic and energetic English teacher from Canada.
I am currently a native English teacher in Jeollabuk-do, South Korea. I graduated from the University of Toronto with a Master’s in Arts, specializing in Japanese and Korean colonial history. I am also well versed in world history, visual arts, music and classical Latin. I am interested in teaching at an international institution to expand my current teaching experience. Since arriving in Korea, I have had the opportunity to work with middle school students in rural areas. I am now looking to teaching younger students in a city location so I can interact with a wider range of students from varying social backgrounds.
In South Korea, I mainly teach middle school grades at Namwon Middle School and Unbong Middle School. Once a week at Dotong Elementary School, I teach the fifth grade. In the winter season, I taught sixth grade at Gyorong Elementary School. This year I have had the opportunity to run an advanced English club with third grade students at Namwon Middle School. My classes incorporate newspaper articles and multicultural topics that allow students to apply their critical thinking and English skills to real life topics. I have some previous experience in Canada teaching classical Latin at a university level and I worked as a private tutor with adult students specifically on English pronunciation and fluency. I think my personal language learning experience helps relate to students' English frustrations. Furthermore, my exchange abroad and other travel experiences will help me be more empathetic to cultural differences.
