Experience as a teacher in Korea:
As an English teacher, I've taught everything in Korea from zero English ability to competitive debate classes, to high level conversation/academic writing/university entrance exams, etc. Also, a plethora of different students who were completely fluent in English (after living abroad for most of their lives) and wanted to practice high level conversational topics to keep their English skills sharp after returning to Korea.

I've taught professionals within my field of study, and also people with careers ranging all over the board - medical doctors, lawyers, engineers, computer scientists, etc. I've been involved in masterclasses with some of the world's best jazz musicians such as John Abercrombie, Jonathan Kriesberg, Ralph Bowen, Lorne Lofsky, and many more. I performed a Masterclass for Manhattan School of Music for acclaimed jazz guitarist Rodney Jones, who has performance with some of the greatest musical minds in history. Taught jazz and classical studio for 2 schools in Canada after my graduation, and directed an ensemble prior to Korea.
