What do people I've worked with say about me?

"Tonya as a teacher is a treat. She loves to elaborate on everything and she always explains something whenever you have questions. She really loves her job and I believe she's really passionate at what she does. I am satisfied with her class."

- Tamara Brown, TaLK Program applicant

"When I made the decision to teach English in South Korea I was extremely excited but also extremely nervous. I had no idea what to expect and how I would survive for a year in a completely different country where I didn't even speak the language. Tonya helped to ease all of my fears and worries. She was there for me during the application process giving me tips on what documents I needed and where I needed to go to get them. She also provided an abundance of information on what to expect culturally and tips for the classroom. She was awesome! Thank you Tonya!!"

- Dana Rogers, TaLK Program Scholar

"Before this program, I was extremely nervous and overwhelmed because I had never done this kind of thing before. Sometimes it can be a long and stressful process but I'm glad that I found this program. We went over things like the application, class management tips, culture, interview tips, and even other ways to find a job besides the popular ones ( EPIK, GEPIK etc.). Before the program i had no idea how to even write a lesson plan but she went through my lesson plan and my essay and told me things that can be improved. I am glad that I found this program because I am definitely a lot less overwhelmed and I know what to expect and prepare for when making this move."

- Jazmine Burnam, EPIK Program applicant

"Tonya's presentation was so helpful, I read it before going to Seoul and I also read it 10 mins after leaving the airport in Seoul and everything made much more sense, like the bus driver who I thought was mean- turns out that's just their culture. So after that, I got used to Koreans being very short and blunt with me and it didn't bother me anymore :) Also, the note about the towel! It's so true. I'm glad I brought my own towel. It's little things like that that make so much sense after spending just a day in Korea. Definitely download all the apps and get familiar with them before arriving. They're a must. Thanks Tonya for helping me navigate Korea successfully."

-Wendy Recinos, tourist in Seoul

Moving to South Korea was one of the BEST decisions I've made! My life changed drastically as I adapted to a very different living situation, workplace and social culture. In the classroom, I learned to be flexible and develop my own unique teaching methods with students from Kindergarten-age to adults. I created originally lessons, conducted camps, directed plays and was even asked to run my own Dance English K-pop class! Outside of the classroom I dove deep into my dance hobby, enjoying the vibrant K-pop/Urban scene of Seoul. Socially, I developed conversational Korean, made life-long friendships, and even found my now husband! Having such a positive experience has inspired me to create this course to help prepare others logistically, culturally, and mentally for a FANTASTIC life and career, teaching English in South Korea.
