italki teacher since Jun 26, 2023
I am Keih ケイ 케이, a new teacher on italki.
I am originally from Gyeonggi province (surrounding areas of Seoul) and have lived in Seoul most of my life. I have a background in Korean language and literature (BA from Ewha & Certified Teacher) and I had lived in London for 2 years doing my master's.
I have been working as a full-time Korean teacher over 8 years. Working at one of the largest Korean language schools in Seoul, I had plenty of opportunities of developing and teaching speaking courses for big organizations like Samsung, LG, and top K-pop entertainment companies. I have also been teaching private students online and genuinely enjoy interacting with my students.

My lessons & teaching style
I genuinely care about each student's progress and make sure my lessons are worth their time and money.

And more importantly, don’t be too serious and enjoy your journey. Language learning should be fun. 😊

We had our trial lesson today and it went quite well. We talked about what I had learned in the past and what kind of lessons we would want to have while also practicing some Korean. Keih 선생님 seems very organized and knowledgeable, and she made sure we both had an understanding of what type of classes I would do well with.

I enjoy my lessons with Keih everytime. She is alsways Patient and never lets me feel stupid. She teaches me new words everytime and uses them in many sentences to I can understand it better. At the Start of each lesson we talk freely sometime about different topics which helps me improve a lot. Thank you 쌤.

Another excellent class with 케이. I continue to make steady progress and am now starting the next textbook in the series. 선생님 continues to assign interesting outside the classroom activities to support my learning. Often these assignments go beyond the traditional workbook, and include different resources that challenge me to expand my vocabulary, writing, and reading comprehension skills naturally. 선생님 provides the resources and support to be successful as long as you 열심히 공부해요. The class notes that she sends after every class and the in-depth feedback that 선생님 provides throughout (and post-class) are invaluable. 감사합니다!

Just started taking lessons (conversation practice) with 케이 선생님 and I already love her teaching style so much. The lessons are the perfect balance between challenging and approachable (as in, I still understand what is going on even if I sometimes have to take a second to think). The lessons are structured, with 선생님 asking various questions but still allowing the conversation to flow naturally. The conversations are fun, and I think having various prompts will also help to diversify the topics I have knowledge about in Korean. Learning with 게이 선생님 makes me feel motivated to keep practicing my conversation skills as I can tell this will really help me improve. I highly recommend taking lessons with her :) 감사합니다 선생님!

Even if Keih is new on iTalki, I think she has extensive teaching experience. The lesson passed quickly with comfortable environment and a lot of opportunity to think and practise making korean sentences and speaking in various situation.
Keih also asked me to make a vocabulary book to make sure would not forget my new vocab. She told me as well to ask if I don't know any word as a new vocab so she would explain.
At the end of the lesson, she wrapped up the content I have just learnt and sent pdf (or doc :) note for easy review and making my own summary. She also assigned homework to practise after class too.
Besides, on the trial lesson, Keih gathered information about
my background, objective and expectation. Keih also gave an idea about books that would be required in class and how our class would progress.
To me, Keih is well-prepared, well-organized and determined to
teach. Thank you for such a wonderful class, Keih 선생님. :)
