When you request lessons please message me to let me know your goal and your Korean level. This helps me prepare for the class. Unfortunately, if I do not hear from you I may need to reject your request. I love meeting all my students so I do not want to do that unless absolutely necessary.

πŸ“’ CANCELLATION, RESCHEDULING, AND NO SHOWS
If you need to reschedule or cancel a lesson, I need to be notified 24 hours in advance. If you ask to change after this 24-hour period I will have to charge you the full price of the lesson. This same rule applies if you are over 15 minutes late and you have not contacted me beforehand. I adjust my life and schedule around these lessons, so please understand why I need to be strict about this type of situation.

➫ Over the course of 7 years, I have taught English at a cram school, secondary school, and one-to-one tutor sessions in Korea. During my graduate school, I was a teaching assistant for colleges. I checked the college students’ homework and gave ...

She’s an amazing teacher!!

Eileen is patient and methodical, and she explains difficult points well. I'm grateful for her help!
Lynnesha L.
This was my very first session and it was great. We jumped right into work after we talked about my starting level. She was very patient and very easy to talk with. I loved the fact that she broke down the sounds to me from how the tone should sound to how my face should move for certain vowels and consonants. I can't wait until second session.

I have taught English to Koreans back in Seoul for more than 10 years, so I know exactly how different these two languages are.

Based on this understanding of how I need to approach non-Korean speaker especially whose mother tongue is English, I am confident that I can let you start studying Korean the easiest way and make the class fun with lots of introduction of Korean cultures and history.

"I can honestly say I am very lucky to have Christina as a Korean teacher. Learning a new language from the ground up can be very daunting, however, Christina makes learning Korean fun and easy to grasp. She is very helpful in creating a strong foundation in which you can easily build an understanding of more advanced words and sentence structures. Of course, much of the learning experience involves your own effort in studying, Christina helps properly guide your course in learning efficiently. Many of my Korean friends are very impressed at how fast I am learning and have commented at how great a teacher Christina is based on my progression. If you are considering learning Korean with the right teacher, look no further, Christina is the right teacher for you!"
