Joined 7 years ago from Seoul, Korea




A teacher in Seoul, South Korea, and a Psych graduate, I love talking about travelling, teaching, learning and thinking, with just about anyone who will talk to me! I'm new here, and I react well to contructive criticism, so if you've got any tips, pointers or comments, please leave them for me.

I've also got a blog called: Adventures in Korea -- an original title, I know -- where I write more about my experiences here in Korea, including posts that aren't as appropriate for hubs often because of length or because they are snapshots of daily life. 

I'm so glad that I've come here to Korea, and that I'm experiencing everything that I have. If you're thinking about teaching in Korea, please feel free to contact me and ask me questions about my experience!
