안녕하세요! My name is Bill and I've lived in South Korea since 2011 where my wife and I tutor students of all ages. These days, we focus mainly on conversational practice with middle and high school students and young adults. We also teach adults in the community where we live. Our students have a great interest in studying English through Western movies, TV dramas and pop-music videos.
