Part-Time Professor of Writing

Prof. Yu has taught writing courses at Kings since 2013. Her focus has been on students with English as a second language. She spent a year in China teaching English in a small village. In terms of her writing experience, she was the editor of the English section of a Korean newspaper, has written articles for TESL Ontario Blog and Reader’s Digest and has co-authored an anthology of Korean fairy tales. Although, one of her objectives is to enable her students to communicate clearly, Prof. Yu hopes some of her students will see the value of writing beyond its instrumental purpose. Like cooking, writing is hard work but can be truly enjoyable, both the process and final product.
