I am so glad I found Jihye! After studying Korean on my own for awhile, I decided to get a one on one teacher. I would recommend Jihye to any one who truly wants to learn. She makes learning fun. She is very patient, and makes it very comfortable to practice conversations. I feel comfortable asking questions and she provides great feedback. I feel challenged but not overwhelmed. And she has incorporated fun learning like talking about Kpop songs and Kdramas into our lessons, which is so cool. She has also been flexible which has made it easier since I work everyday. I want to continue working with Jihye for as long as I can. Thank you Jihye!

I have taught English to Koreans back in Seoul for more than 8 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.

About Suyoun

Hello! My name is Su and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007. From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun. Ho

Even though my Korean lessons with Suyoun are short, they are filled with helpful information. She is an easy person to talk to and is patient when explaining confusing concepts. I would highly recommend working with her!

She's one of the best teachers that I've ever had in my life. Her classes motivated me a lot in continuing to learn Korean. She's very friendly and approachable. She understood my time constraints very well and helped to adjust the schedule accordingly to make the classes a great experience.

Language is a fun trick. Grammar has a foundational importance to every language, however, learning the nuances of the language becomes primary, the more you learn it. You can speak a language grammatically correctly from start to end, however, what makes you sound like a native is understanding and utilizing the feelings and nuances of the particular language. I am a 1.5 generation Korean, with fluency in both Korean and English. I can help you impress the Korean folks around you before you know it!

I've been learning Korean with Cheol Hong since April (it's August 30th). He is an incredibly dedicated teacher, patient, understanding and funny. He encourages me to practice my Korean every day (which I do) and he carefully reviews each submission between lessons to help me get better. I'm adopted and wanted to learn Korean so I could better connect to my Korean heritage (my grandmother is Korean) and I have learned so much during my studies. I would highly recommend Cheol Hong to anyone who is interested in learning Korean. He's the best!
Jessica
My daughter's first lesson with Mr. Park was wonderful. He was thorough, engaging and gave her lots of encouragement throughout the lesson. The material he sent afterward to help with her homework between lessons will be very helpful. She can't wait for her next session with Mr. Park.
Corinne
I've been taking lessons from Mr. Park for a few months now, and I've been really enjoying them! I've taken group classes before, but this is my first 1:1 lesson experience, and Mr. Park does a great job catering and personalizing his approach to what you're interested in, even if it's not quite language related! For example, I told him I was looking to study Korean art history, and he sent me additional resources specific to that, and sometimes even devotes time to discuss different facets of it if it comes up in the lesson. He also provides a deep dive into the Sino/Native-Korean roots of different words which I personally find helpful and interesting. He is patient, encouraging, and personable, and does a fantastic job explaining things even if you don't quite get it the first time. Highly recommend!

Do have hard time remember korean? Don't worry when you repeat something more than 30 times, you will never forget it. The class won't be fun if I just repeat a word 30 times, right? you probably can memorize them all before then. But I'll help you to repeat the words, and you don't have to consid

"I've been taking lessons with Suyeon for 5 weeks now and it has made a huge difference. Suyeon is patient, friendly, and encouraging. She makes the material easy to understand and is happy to answer questions. I began our lessons with almost no knowledge of the language and already I have learned how to construct basic sentences, ask and answer simple questions, politely order food, count, tell time, and conjugate verbs. I actually learned more in our first lesson than in the entire month I tried to teach myself, because even though I was very motivated to learn, much of the information I found on the internet was either incorrect or incomplete. So happy with my decision to hire Suyeon. I definitely recommend it!"
