Teaching

My teaching experience ranges from university teaching, to public lectures and volunteer teaching in the community, and technical and area training in the military. I primarily teach on the topics of religion – especially that of Korea, Japan, and China – and Korean history, politics, and culture. In addition to my work as a teaching fellow, I have experience giving guest lectures and panel/webinar talks in and out of universities and teaching in the community on a volunteer basis and am available, on a case-by-case basis, for such teaching and speaking.
