Private Korean Teacher

I grew up in Korea for the most of my life. Although I live in the states and use English on a daily, I believe that I am a true bilingual since I use both languages on a daily bases.
I can help with every day conversational language to grammar and literature.

While a bit humbling Alex definitely helped me fix some glaring technical issues, particularly with the bow.
Miyeon
She helped my 12 year old daughter prepare the Saint Saens Cello concerto (1st movement) for a small performance. My daughter played more spiritedly after her session with Alex. She was especially helpful for a specific bow technique.

안녕하세요! Korean will make more sense when you understand the culture.
YES, we will explore different situations where a Korean phrase might fit.
YES, we will share Korean memes to get colloquial.
YES, we will get practice intonation using effective scatting method. (Ask me about the scatting method)

I really like how he wanted to get to know the type of person I am and what I already know. We learned about each other aswell.

My first lesson with Jeehoon was great. He's a very engaging instructor that made the lesson enjoyable with much laughter. I feel like his teaching style will help me to grasp Korean better than I have with other teachers thus far. I am very hopeful to progress towards my goals quicker and more efficiently.

I want to take the opportunity to say that my Korean teacher, Youngju Lee, has been an amazing teacher for me this past year. I was altogether without any ability to speak or write the Korean language at the beginning, not one syllable could I understand, but there I was, engaged to a Korean girl whose parents were quite conservative. I had to set them at ease and show them I welcomed Korean language and culture into my life. Ms. Lee started me with the basics, the written alphabet, the vowel and consonant pronunciations. She was always clear and patient and her lessons were well paced to my achievement; it was a well conceived plan, each lesson leading into the next and there is always a sense of accomplishment as each lesson was integrated into the previous. Since Ms. Lee is a highly educated native of Korea, she knew everything, all the intimate details about greetings and levels of respect in Korean culture. My meeting with my wife's parents was a success, and they were very pleased by how well I understood the Korean side of things. I remember at dinner handing the kimchi bowl to my father in law I remembered: two hands, not one! My bows were well rehearsed as well. We had a great time together and I owe it to Ms. Lee's teaching. I have enjoyed our time together and will continue to do so in the future. Thank You, Ms. Lee!

Very patient and helpful - she works with me at my level while encouraging me to get better.

감사합니다!

Youngju 선생님 is a fantastic teacher so far! She works quickly to figure out what level you are at and how to meet your needs, and she is patient and fun ^.^

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 have taken several classes with Ms. Yongju so I can say with experience that she is an excellent teacher. She truly understands the learning process and therefore knows how to impart knowledge that is comprehensible to her students. She thoroughly prepares for each class and makes sure you know the material before forward. I have taken other language courses before, but I would say that this one-on-one focus with Ms. Yongju, my learning seems to be accelerated. I look forward to my classes."

"It's official. Best instructor ever. Today was the end of my initial prepaid classes. I have already set up for another month. Jihye teaches at my pace. Is still very patient and reviews sections until I "get it". Sections that I get quickly, she moves on and then ties everything together.
She has a wonderful personality and literally makes learning the Korean language fun. She has me read, write, speak and laugh all while teaching. She always greets my family members if they happen walk by in the background.
I am making progress and look forward to my classes. Another plus is that she uses a textbook. So even though this is a holiday break, I can peek to future lessons and continue to practice.
A+++ to Jihye."
