Hello Korean lovers!! Do you want to learn Korean with a CERTIFIED and EXPERIENCED Korean teacher? I have been teaching for 30 YEARS including K-8 and COLLEGE as well as private tutoring in Korea, China and India. I am a student-centered, patient and dedicated teacher with teaching certificates from the Ministry of Education in Korea. My students have always been happy with my teaching because I always focus on students’ interests in what they are learning. I graduated from the graduate school of Seoul National University, the best university in Korea. Please check my profile and judge whether I can be your Korean teacher. I know everything Korean!! Let me share it with you!

About Youngju
Dear Prospective Students,

I know how to teach you the Korean language EFFECTIVELY and QUICKLY.

I’m a CERTIFIED teacher with 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE, from elementary school to college. I have had many international teaching experiences and live with a multilingual family. I also completed the Program for Training Korean Language Instructors for Foreigners. This means I am aware of what the most difficult problems are when students learn Korean and I can provide the most simple and effective ways to acquire the language quickly.

I am confident that I can teach you authentic Korean at ANY LEVEL.

I finished my academic history as far as the phd (I never finished my dissertation, alas). I received my Masters degree and completed all of my post graduate work at Seoul National University, which a point of particular pride with me; a
fter all, Seoul National University is the Harvard of Korea. I have a number of published works in my academic association's annual journal. And I have a Certification in Reading and Essay Instruction.

I also know KOREAN VALUES and CULTURE inside and out.

I was born in Korea and spent most time of my life there in a traditional family. I have a deep understanding of Korea and its history and life style which I could share with you. If you want to learn how to cook Korean food such as kimchi, seaweed rolls(sushi) or jabchea(noodles), of course, I can teach you! I’m a housewife, too!!

I can give you ADVICE about getting GOOD JOBS in Korea.

I taught in Korean public schools as a homeroom teacher, art teacher and English teacher. Most of my responsibilities as an English teacher were executed with native English teachers. As you know, there are many qualified English speakers in Korea who want to be full time English teachers. I worked with teachers from EPIK(English Program In Korea), TaLK(Teach and Learn in Korea) and even Fulbright scholars. Native English teachers and I worked together very well; indeed, I won an award, due, if I may say so, to my organizational pedagogical contribution. I interviewed prospective teachers, taught them how to teach and prepare classes, how to get along with students and other colleagues, housing matters, and so forth. (In addition, I can give you advice on how to apply to a Korean University and handle an interview as my husband taught for many years in Korean Universities.)

I am a certified and experienced teacher who can help you with your ambitions and needs with Korean.
Let’s have fun while improving your Korean Language ability on Skype, at my home, or at your place at your convenience!
I’m totally ready to work with you.

Let's get together!! See you then!!

******
I would like to post answers to questions that my prospective students usually put to me about my Korean lessons.

Q: Are you good with VISUAL LEARNERS and VERBAL LEARNERS ?

A: Yes, I'm good at that. I'm a trained teacher of Korean with more than 30 years experience.

I would like to say my teaching style varies depending on the learner's condition: age, learning style,present level in Korean, purpose of getting lesson, etc. What I usually do is use visual materials, songs and even physical gestures for children, since they have not fully developed their logical reasoning and use of abstractions. I also introduce online Korean practice programs. I also use these with adult learners who are totally beginners. Generally speaking, visual, audio and TPR approaches are more effective for beginners.

I give learners lots of chances to express what they are learning. I always link their Korean knowledge between what they learned and what they are learning. I give homework as much as they can handle, too. Regarding writing, we can share simple words or sentences on the Skype and the more you are advanced the more things we can do. One of my advanced learners is writing a diary and proofreads with me when we start every class.

Q: WHERE DO YOUR LESSONS START AT? Do they start with learning how to put the vowels and consonants together or just starting off with words you need to know?

A: Again, mine are individualized lessons. One of my students wants to just learn how to communicate verbally in Korean. It means he doesn’t care about written Korean. If the learner already knows the Korean alphabet and knows how Korean syllables are structured then I don’t need to repeat it. I don’t prolong the process or time without reason. Other than that, I start from vowels and consonants and how to combine them, and how to make sounds, and read, etc.

Q: Do you teach how to properly READ KOREAN?

A; I teach learners how to read Korean and let them read it and correct their mistakes. My pronunciation is very clear. Prior to my more than 20 years teaching history, I had worked for a Korean public TV station, KBS, as a reporter.

Q: Do you teach FORMAL and INFORMAL KOREAN because I know there is a difference between them.

A: Yes, I teach formal and informal Korean both, in addition to the Korean basic sentence structure. Of course, if you want to learn specific form only then I can do it for you. As I said, it’s all up to you.

Q: How do I PAY for the lessons?

A: All of the administrative work happens through takelessons.com except the actual class. It means you have to pay to takelessons.com. You can find how to do this on "How it Works" on the main page of takelessons.com homepage
(https://takelessons.com/students/how-it-works).

Q: WHERE the lessons occur?

A: My lessons have four possible venues.

1. At your place (presently not available): To know my travel area, pleace check "Select a location" on the top right of this my profile page( https://takelessons.com/profile/youngju-s1?online) in the box.

2. At teacher's place(presently not available): If you live in Baltimore and can come to my place then you can take face-to-face lessons. That is a choice too.

3. Online: Online lessons are conducted through live 1-on-1 video chats using my personal meeting room.

4. Online TakeLessons Classroom: I also teach online group classes.

Q: When the lessons are AVAILABLE?

A: You can find my availability at "View availability" on the top right of this profile page( https://takelessons.com/profile/youngju-s1?online) in the box. Once a schedule is set, the classes occur according to it. You can reschedule whenever you need to, just for a short time or longer as long as both sides are available.

Q: Is there some way we can schedule a "TRIAL" session with you?

A: Actually, I handle all requests through takelessons.com's direct messaging system until students are officially on my roster. You and I will receive all our contact info once you book lessons and we can communicate directly then. Sorry, this means there can be no trial session short of five lessons, which is the minimum they allow. But trust that 100% SATISFACTION is GUARANTEED!! :-)

I hope that I gave you the answers what you are looking for. If you have more questions then never hesitate to ask. I welcome questions from learners!!

Wow! I've taken only two lessons from Youngju so far and she is absolutely amazing. I really feel like the lessons are very focused and she is very adept at meeting me where I am. I consider my Korean language abilities as not a beginner but also not very intermediate. I am very familiar with the language structure and can read fairly well. Youngju has been able to take what I know and bridge it with new knowledge. She is very open to answering any questions I have and she seems genuinely invested in my understanding. I'm looking forward to more lessons to come!

Perfect temperament for working with my 7 year old. Sung Je K adapts to my sons whims and, when needed, drew him back into the lesson using them. Ex. My son, on a suger high from a holliday party at school, started blurting out random words. Sung Je K. Took those words, and used them in the lesson. It was fantastic. Sung Je K is attentive and wants his students to learn. A+ teacher!

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.

About Johan
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!

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 Sue 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.

How can I make the classes fun? Along with language classes, I will share lots of Korean culture and history, so the students have always interest in the Korean culture. Once you are interested in that culture, it will be inevitable not to learn the language! Always remember! Language and Culture. These are 2 things that never be separated.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
