German private teacher wanted

One of my Korean students would like to learn German.
He is a middle school first grade student and lives in Jamsil.
Anyone can help him?

No, definitely not anyone.  You would need someone who speaks German for starters.  Hopefully that narrows the field down a bit for you.  Best of luck.

Is your student looking for in-person tutoring, or would they prefer online?
If the latter, it might be a good idea to throw the net a bit wider than just NETs in Korea!
Also, what level is this student at? You might find more willing to teach low level materials -- for example, I know basic German grammar and can fake a mean Low German accent (because I speak Dutch and some Frisian), but beyond first year level, I'd make an absolute muddle of it.

It might also be a good idea to start doing some self studying while looking for a tutor: Duolingo is great, although it caters mostly to native English speakers. There are also a few youtube channels that teach German for native Korean speakers that he could check out.

I just remembered walking by a Goethe Institute walking around the road that rings Namsan in Yongsan.  I'd say that would be a close second as best place to look for a teacher after Waygook.
