Private Korean Teacher

I taught myself Korean. So, I understand the struggles that everyone goes through when learning Korean and I have figured out all the tricks and ways of learning the language. I have perfected the Korean accent, have received a certificate from the Korean government confirming my Korean language abilities, and I have taught a Korean class in association with IYF (International Youth Foundation) at Temple University.

About Natalie

*** I am currently living in London so my time zone is British Summer Time (EST +5)! Please remember that when scheduling lessons, Thank you!***
I understand how hard it is to be able to learn a second language. Having taught myself Korean, I have found how to have fun learning a new language, how to effectively learn the language, and how to squeeze it into a busy schedule. That's why I am flexible with my teaching schedule. If the one posted on my page doesn't work for you, email me and we can work something out!

I have been to South Korea four times and have intensively studied both the South and North Korean cultures, so feel free to ask me any questions. I want this class to be focused on your needs and what you want to learn - whether it be vocab, grammar, culture, or everything!

I can read, write, speak, make jokes, and even

make play-on-word jokes in Korean. I have received a certification from the Korean government confirming my proficiency in the Korean language, and I have taught a Korean course in association with IYF (International Youth Foundation) at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have also studied at Yonsei University (연세대학교), one of South Korea's top schools and the country's oldest school, for the spring of 2018 and will be continuing my education at SOAS in London this upcoming fall for my Masters.

The lessons are for my 16 year old daughter, so I haven't experienced them myself. But I can tell from all of the information she passes on, that Natalie is an excellent teacher. She customizes the lessons to my daughter's interests and skill level. I am so glad that I was able to get connected to her through take lessons.com.

Taking lessons with Natalie has been great! She breaks everything down easily, so that you can understand, and is very patient when it comes to your level of learning. I look forward to continuing my lessons with Natalie in the future! :)

Natalie is an incredible Korean teacher. Her lessons are always relevant, engaging, and useful. And having learned Korean herself, she knows the challenges that English speakers face and is great at helping others overcome those challenges. I owe it to Natalie for helping me get my Korean to where it is today!

If you are traveling to Korea, visiting, working, studying, or just interested in the language, Korean, I can help you talk to native Koreans. I've lived in Korea for 25 years and wanted to be a Korean teacher. While I was in college, I did volunteer work helping foreigners that lived there learn Korean. I’m waiting for passionate students!

About Jane

If you are traveling to Korea, visiting, working, studying, or just interested in the language, Korean, I can help you talk to native Koreans. I've lived in Korea for 25 years and wanted to be a Korean teacher. While I was in college, I did volunteer work helping foreigners that lived there learn Korean. I also helped my husband study Korean during the time he was stationed there in the Army. I taught them many things including pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and speaking formalities. Before all the above, the very first thing you need to do is studying the Korean alphabet, Hangeul. Knowing the alphabet, Hangeul will enable you to read every single word and sentences with no problem. As an English learner, I do understand difficulties learning a foreign language.

I like helping other people, learning things, and teaching others my

knowledge. I love languages and especially my native, The Korean language. That’s the reason why I’ve tutored students in Korean till now, and I’m so happy to be a helper for those who are interested in my country or Korean language. I’m eager to try different ways to teach not to be stuck with the same teaching-learning method. Also, I prefer studying a language using real-life examples to that only from books. I look for sources for Korean learning in real life to teach students real Korean in fun ways. Lesson materials are provided, but you can also share your book or things you want to learn in the lesson. Lessons are taught with the provided lesson materials, but your needs can be treated in the lesson as well. I want to be a teacher who is sometimes like a friend! It’s okay to text me when you have any questions related to Korean outside your lesson time. You may need a partner to work on your conversation skills, maybe preparing for working or study abroad, or just interested in learning a new language. I’ve coached students to achieve all the above. Whether young or old, man or woman, you are welcome if you have a willingness to learn the language, so let me know. I’ll do my best to teach you Korean till you achieve your goals. Let's get started!

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!

Private Korean Teacher

I have been teaching Korean to teenagers and adults for 5 years. All lessons are catered to students' needs and meet the objective of generating independent student output in correct grammar and full sentences. We will be covering reading, writing, listening, speaking, pronunciation, and others. I am flexible with meeting locations for ongoing lessons, so please let me know if you want to adjust the location. I believe that learning should be fun, interactive, and invigorating. Let's begin our journey together! :)

About April

Teaching Experience
I have been teaching English, Korean, standardized exams (TOEFL, TOEIC, SAT etc.), and Math to students aged 5-50 for the last 8 years. I have taught at an international school, college application agencies, academies, private homes, and even online. Some of my teaching highlights are being ranked the best teacher out of 30 teachers at Hellocafe and launching several new programs at White Stone International School. Besides teaching, I have 5 years of experience translating formal documents, pamphlets, and business emails for both business clients and individuals.

How I Teach
I tailor my lessons to students' needs and provide specific feedback and summary at the end of every class. The following classes cover new as well as review materials with plenty of practice and application to ensure that students are fully comf

ortable with the newly gained knowledge. I utilize creative teaching methods such as debates, Knowledge Celebration, and Zoom-in Study to boost students’ understanding and help them apply the learned content in a variety of ways.

Education
I graduated from Macalester College with a bachelor’s degree in Economics and Applied Math and Statistics and a minor in Psychology. I was on the Dean’s List in college and was a Valedictorian in both high school and middle school. I won the first place in Chosum Ed essay competition and received the Kofi Annan International Scholarship.

Naomi Gorero
"Youngju is a very experienced teacher. Her teaching style is very good and I the student learned so much about pronunciation and writing. She is very kind
and very patient when the student is having struggles. She also tries to converse in Korean with the student in order for the student to speak fluently. I recommend for anyone who wants to learn Korean should make Youngju your teacher ! 감사합니다!"
...
Julia
"It was a wonderful experience, learning from her. She explains things very well and makes things easy to understand. She is very thorough. She makes sure
you understand one thing before moving on to the next. I found this very helpful when it came to pronunciation of the letters and syllables of Hangul. Before I began studying with Youngju, I already knew the basics of Hangul--how they were written, how they sounded, etc.--but it is very helpful to have a native speaker/tutor there to help you improve your understanding. I like her style of teaching--it's very fun and simple. She gives you props when you get things right and helps you out if you find some things difficult. Youngju is a very good instructor. I look forward to studying more with her!"

Leandera Murray
"Suyeon is an AMAZING teacher! Today was my first class so Suyeon wanted to know where my knowledge of Korean was so far, so she quizzed me on a range of t
hings. For 30 minutes I felt like I refreshed a lot of stuff!! I'm glad she's so patient, because I kept stumbling over myself nervously, but she was willing to listen and sorta help me without full-out giving me the answers at times. I cannot wait for the next lesson!"
...
April
"As an educator I have high expectations. I have tried two other tutors in the hopes of finding a tutor that would fit me. While the other tutors were very
polite and comfortable to work with, Jeehoon exceeded my expectations. Jeehoon was prompt, organized, knowledgeable, and very comfortable to work with. He also has a great personality and sense of humor which helps to relax the student fostering a learning environment. I learned the most with him in one lesson than the other two lessons from my other tutors combined. If you truly want to learn Korean Language in a thorough manner, this is the tutor to work with. I am excited and look forward to my future sessions with Jeehoon."
