About Jihye
Hello, future students!

My name is Jihye and I teach Piano and Korean language. I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in LA, California. I graduated from Kyung Hee University and earned a Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.

I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools. In the past, I have met many K pop and K drama lovers so I decided to share my culture and language with them.

So far I have met many passionate and enthusiastic students whom I feel very lucky to work with. I offer personalized curriculum to each of my Korean and piano students. Also, help students who prepare piano level exams such as CM, ABRSM, and SATII for the Korean language. I sometimes use clips of songs and dramas to help students who learn Korean.

Are you ready to learn?? Let's begin taki

Jihye is one of the best Korean teachers ever! My mother and I are learning Korean and we needed an expert and that could teach us the basics. We were total beginners until we met her. She taught us the alphabet and phrases. We are currently still taking lessons, and without doubt we will be fluent as well. She is very nice and also cares very much about our learning. She is overall a great Korean teacher and we would recommend her to everyone we know!

I have learned Korean from Youri back in 2012. She made the curriculum to fit my needs and made it very easy for me to understand, explaining the details as to why certain things are said in certain ways.
Definitely recommend Youri as a Korean language teacher for her future students!

I came to USA at age of 15 and learned English in Mid-West most of my life. I love using idioms in both language. In Korean up-to-dated direct translation of "you're welcome" is "what?" why? because they meant "oh no what are you talking about? don't mention it"
Let's learn the language while having fun. Take a lesson from me.

Johan here and I love music! Nice to meet you fellow music lover.

I have been involved in music since I was just a child. It started with learning piano, then guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, djembe and so many more.

I’ve continued to learn and perfect my craft by being apart of different types of bands from small to large with varying genres of music. I also formalized my music education with a bachelor of Art in Music. Did I mention I’m also quite a harmonizer? Sign up today and maybe I’ll throw in some tips with your instrument lesson.

Johan is great with kids! My son is a very active child, and he was able to make the lesson fun and engaging. More than that, I enjoyed seeing Johan be creative, listen to the child, and make music fun, more than being it a lesson (per say). I highly recommend Johan!

Johan is talented, passionate, and an all around positive force that everyone needs in an instructor. He can help you discover what it is you really want to get out of piano/music, and then guide you to where you want to go.

I am a patient teacher who can speak Cantonese, Mandarin and English fluently when I teach Korean. I had been to Korean several times for exchange study, and I was also teaching Korean to some Qualcomm engineers that need to work with Samsung company in San Diego. Recently I moved to New York, and I am currently based in SoHo area as well as East Village area. I usually prefer to teach in Starbucks which makes me and my student easy to access all the time. My class usually focus on oral practice and cultural experience, however, the content of the class can be adjusted upon request. Thank you for choosing my class!

About Jingting
Hello! My name is Rubyanne, and I am a patient teacher from San Diego. I can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, and English fluently. Therefore, I can always use the language other than English on teaching Korean or Chinese upon request. I used to teach Korean to some Qualcomm Engineers in San Diego in order to help them getting achievements on working with Samsung company. Moreover, I used to teach Asian culture to K-12 students in San Diego schools. I enjoy the way to share the culture I am familiar with to those people who are interested in learning new culture. In addition, as my speaking ability of all the languages I can use are considered outstanding, I will be your good partner on doing oral practice, too!

My Korean lessons are not just learning a language, but learning about the Korean culture and history from the past to the present. My lessons are student-centered teaching, comprising a lot of fun activities, practical knowledge, and much feedback. Four skills (Reading, Speaking, Listening, Writing
) will be integrated and taught throughout my lessons.
