Love Korean Culture (K-Pop, K-Drama, K-Movie etc) and wanna speak Korean?
I'm a Korean Language Tutor based in Denver, Colorado. I've been teaching Korean to various groups of students, starting 2018. I was born and raised in Korea, and came to states to attend Graduate School in Denver. Native in Korean and fluent in English, I can teach anyone who wants to speak Korean!

I graduated college in Korea and majored in International Studies and Journalism. I teach Korean in very approachable ways: from beginners to advanced students, we will combine Speaking + Listening + Reading + Writing + Vocabulary all in one program. From time to time, Korean media contents(to your interest or from my choice) will be incorporated to better understand and learn Korean more easily. Start speaking Korean today!

Hannah is outstanding! She is wonderful! She was highly organized, patient, and she patterned her lesson for 90 minutes for a person who basically had no knowledge of English for a Korean student. Upon completion of the first lesson, she motivated me to work for another 3 hours at the kitchen table in preparation for the next lesson. I am happy.
Tracey
Hannah is an amazing teacher. My daughter loves learning with Hannah.
Colin
I recently began taking lessons with Hannah and it has been a wonderful experience. I went in intimidated at the thought of learning such a difficult language from scratch, but Hannah has been a very helpful and encouraging instructor and makes the language so much more manageable. I've been rather amazed by how much Korean I have been able to pick up in such a short time and have no doubt that I can become fluent eventually under her instruction. Anyone interested in learning Korean should absolutely take lessons with Hannah!

Jay is a great, patient, kind teacher. He was very considerate and willing to teach, considering my goals and level, stretching when he sees that is possible, but respecting my time. I super recommend him.
Tina B.
Jay was fantastic for my first lesson. He was easy going and sweet. He took time to understand what I was all about and what I was looking for out of my lessons. He encouraged me to speak some Korean and try out some words, but kept most of our communication in English so I could to understand and follow along. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a low pressure learning environment.
