About me

Since then, I have taught adults and children at all levels in South Korea, the UK and online.

My extensive experience ranges from teaching general English to very young learners up to business and medical English to busy professionals. I am also experienced in preparing students for both IELTS and Cambridge exams.

With a strong academic background in Linguistics, I provide instruction that is not only engaging and fun, but provides my learners with tangible results at the end of every lesson.

To do this successfully, I put my learners at the heart of every lesson, ensuring that I provide them with learning materials that suit their style and preferences.

I look forward to helping you improve your English!

I like my lessons because I think my teacher can teach me the knowledge which I really want to learn. On the other hand, my teacher always teach me from wrong to right. So I like my lesson a lot. Thank you

These lessons have been a tremendous help in helping our non-native 9-year-old gain confidence and put her vocabulary to work. Now that the speaking apprehension lowered, a number of improvements have been made. The weekly feedback has been an important tool in keeping track. Karen is a great teacher who works excellently with our daughter and manages to get the very best out of her.

Karen is really brilliant in teaching English to kids. After few lessons I have already noticed that my son has improved a lot his English knowledge and fluency. Karen is doing a wonderful job!I find these lessons very effective. Moreover, having the chance to take classes during the weekend directly from home, is extremely practical.
