Dearborn, MI 48128


I was born and raised in Tumen, a town in Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture, Northeast China. My
hometown is a border city between China and North Korea, divided by the Tumen River (Dooman River
in Korean). Growing up in a multilingual and multicultural environment, I have been inspired and
challenged by cultural conflicts and the integration of Korean-Han-Manchurian culture. This experience
has driven me to bridge the cultural gap and raise the cultural awareness of my students in the language

I came to the US in 2008, received an MBA and an MA in Applied Linguistics from the University of
Massachusetts. Before I joined University of Michigan Dearborn, I was a Teaching Assistant Professor at
University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. I have taught at the Boston University, UMASS Boston and
Chinese Institute of Language and Arts from. During last ten years of my teaching, I both developing
curriculum and carrying out interactive instruction for college students and a variety of adults in different
professions. I strive to create an interactive learning environment for all of my students and encourage
them to communicate as much as possible, in order to maximize their communicative competence.
