Hello, future students!

My name is Jihye and I teach Piano and Korean language. I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in LA, California. I graduated Kyung Hee University and earned Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.

I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools since 2005. In the past, I have met many K pop and K drama lovers so I decided to share my culture and language with them.

So far I have met many of passionate and enthusiastic students whom I feel very lucky to work with. I offer personalized curriculum to each of my Korean and piano students. Also, help students who prepare piano level exams such as CM, ABRSM, and SATII for the Korean language. I sometimes use clips of songs and dramas to help students who learn Korean.

I am a recent graduate from Northern Arizona University, but spent all of my childhood living in Seoul, South Korea. Because of this I have become tri-lingual (English, Korean, Japanese). While at university, I was the vice-president and a teacher of the Korean Club which specialized at teaching university students how to speak, write, and read the Korean language since the university did not offer classes. Being from, and spending my life in Korea, I am very familiar with the culture which would greatly help me teach you relevant phrases / vocabulary that would be useful in conversation.

About Jeehyae
I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. I spent my first 20 years in Korea. I earned a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management at Northern Arizona University. While completing my studies at NAU, I was the vice-president of the Korean club teaching college students the Korean language (reading, writing, speaking), and culture.

I have experience teaching Korean to students ranging in skill from beginner to advanced. Students can expect to learn not only the language but also Korean culture and how the language is actually used outside of textbooks.

I also worked at the international office at NAU and Ajou University in Korea. So because of this, I am very experienced in teaching and speaking to students who are either learning English or Korean, and have a strong ability to increase their learning speed.

Learning a language should be fun and enjoyable. I use methods that employees all senses which help you to learn more and to remember longer. I was born in Korea and learned English as living in the US. I'm currently learning Mandarin Chinese as well, so I can relate to those who are learning a new language. My previous work experience includes translation and interpretation at a Korean manufacturing company. Each lesson is customized based on your need; business English, conversational/free-talking, improving pronunciation or preparing interviews. I can help students of all ages, from children to adults for all levels of both English and Korean. Please feel free to let me know what your focus is or what you would like to improve. If you don't see an opening for a lesson, feel free to contact me and we can discuss.
I don't claim to know everything - language learning is a life-long process. But I can certainly help you to build the love of learning a new language!

안녕하세요.
저는 한국에서 태어나 미국에 수십년 살면서 영어를 배우게 되었습니다. 지난 몇년간은 통역, 번역에 종사한 경험도 있으며, 현재 중국어도 공부하고 있습니다. 새로운 언어를 배운다는게 어떤건지 직접 경험해 보았기 때문에 영어를 공부하시는 분들과 충분히 공감할 수 있습니다. 저는 영어를 완전히 정복했다고 느끼지는 않아요. 하지만 제가 직접 사용하는 실용적인 방법들, 그리고 다국어를 공부한 사랍들에게 배운 방법들을 공유하면서 같이 공부해 보시도록 격려 드립니다. 매 강의는 배우시는 분의 필요에 따라 맞춤형으로 진행됩니다.
언어는 평생 공부해야 비로소 터득한다고 하지만, 다른사람과 의미있는 대화를 하거나 정확한 정보를 공유할 수 있는 수준은 얼마든지 갖출 수 있습니다. 올바른 의도를 가지고 계시다면, 그리고 조금의 노력과 꾸준함을 투자하신다면 영어는 즐기면서 배울 수 있습니다.

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 a multi-talented musician. He understands music in a unique way and has an ability to communicate that to others that are not naturally gifted in understanding musical concepts. He is very laid back and easy to get along with and has a vibe that makes you feel like you've known each other since childhood. He can also teach at all skill levels from a beginner that doesn't even have rhythm to pro level musicians that tour frequently. He also works really well with teaching kids. When he's working with children, I can see his passion and excitement go to greater heights. It's pretty cool to see it. Give Johan a try. I think there is a 92% chance that you'll learn to play music and make a new friend that you look forward to hanging out with.
