Biography and Education

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.


M.B.A., M.A. in Applied Linguistics from University of Massachusetts
