We had a great time! She was kind, patient and started with the language aspects that I wanted to focus on. She offered alternative options to sayings and explained everything well. It was an excellent first meeting! Looking forward to the next lesson.

About Gun

Do have hard time remember korean? Don't worry when you repeat something more than 30 times, you will never forget it. The class won't be fun if I just repeat a word 30 times, right? you probably can memorize them all before then. But I'll help you to repeat the words, and you don't have to consid

Hello. I was born in Korea and was raised there for more than 18 years. My first language is Korean, and I have been teaching students from take lessons and another academy. I can teach you from beginner level, and you will be able to see the improvement in speaking, writing, listening, and reading skills in Korean. If you are interested in focusing on only one skill or vice versa, we are always available to adjust our lessons according to our discussion. I know that learning another language is not easy. We will go through step by step, and you will feel more comfortable in opening your eyes to the language.

Seonjung (Hailey) is an amazing drawing teacher! I went to her with little experience and she has been able to break the drawing process down in a very clear and patient way. She makes your progress such a priority & my skills have definitely improved over the past months. It is truly wonderful learning with her!

May I ask you first, what are your reasons for learning Korean? Are you interested in learning Korean but don’t know where to begin? Are you learning Korean for your career, or to work in Korea? Do you want to understand Korean songs or TV shows better? Everyone may have a different reason, and I'm curious to hear yours! Please let me know so I may help you to reach your goals faster.
Korean is a beautiful language, but it is very different from English in structure grammar. Also, there are lots of pronunciations that will require some familiarization. I will help you get past some of these obstacles and to stay motivated to keep learning until you reach your goals!

My first session with Panjin went very well. She assessed my needs and current knowledge level of the Korean language. It was a learning experience for both of us. I'm excited to what's in store for future sessions.

Seriously love Panjin. Her lessons are well thought out and she’s always so much fun. We’ve been learning to read Korean and say some common phrases. It’s been great and looking forward to future lessons. She’s always shares videos and pdfs as learning aides. She’s also good about recording our lessons so we can look back!

Great teacher! Just finished my first lesson and I'm very happy with what I learned.
