I’m really glad that I chose Jiyhe as my teacher for learning Korean. Even though I’m just taking the lessons for fun, I feel that she has helped me to start building a solid foundation. Each lesson is well balanced in terms of review and new material so I don’t feel overwhelmed. She incorporates grammar, speaking, vocabulary, listening exercises and writing as well as cultural and social etiquette tips. Highly recommend!

Jihye is an amazing teacher, I am a slow learner who has dyslexia, and she is so patient and kind. She is helping with pronunciation and cares for her students very much. If you take a class, I recommend her very much, she wants to make sure all her students feel confident in themselves while taking this.
Dexter R.
Today was my 105th lesson with Jihye. I started in Oct. 2017. I went back and watched the recordings of my first few lessons. OMG, she has brought me a long way. Over two years of lessons and her enthusiasm and patience has not diminished a single iota. Any questions I have while practicing outside of our sessions, she will take the time to reply and help me.
If a busy person like me is still here after 2 1/2 years, she is doing something right! I highly recommend her.

I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.

Three Japanese lessons provided, each tailored to maximize student's abilities according to their goals.

◆45-minute lesson: All in one comprehensive lesson with 15-20 minutes speaking plus listening and reading, new vocabulary and grammar.

◆30-minute lesson: Speaking practice plus one activity from listening, reading, or grammar, idioms your choice.

***Note: My lessons always have 5 minutes of break time at the end. This is because I must write feedback and prepare for the next class. Thank you for understanding.

"The reason I looked for accent reduction training was I wanted to improve on my English and people understand my accent better. Our trainings were really helpful. When I started the training, I thought I just needed accent lesson, but during the process, I realized I needed the help for grammar, writing, vocabulary etc. I felt my lesson was comprehensive English not just limited accent lesson. I liked you to record my accent and listened together. I didn't like to hear my voice and accent , but it was great reality check. I also liked the motivation and encouragement from you. Your honesty was really helpful too. The favorite part was having good conversation with you. I recommend Nicole because she can detect our problem and really familiar with the problem of Asian accent. She prepares the lesson well and customize our needs. She will set the goal for you, so it is easy to follow. If you are not sure, I want you to take a test and go over with her. It would be the eye opening."
