Today was my first lesson with Jihye, and she was so kind and patient with my level 1 Korean. I'm a very hands-on learner, and she gave me plenty to work with until our next lesson. I'm excited about learning more with her, highly recommend!

Private Korean Teacher

I grew up in South Korea half of my life and I talk in Korean with my family and my Korean friends all the time. Learning a new language is very difficult, however, with my help, I can definitely get someone to a point where they can understand Korean without stressing out. I have been volunteering as a Korean language teacher in church for 4 years before moving to Los Angeles.

She’s a phenomenal instructor. She’s willing to change her pace if you are having difficulty or picking it up quickly. She also gives historical/cultural context. I highly recommend her as a Korean teacher! :)

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.

I wanted to find someone who was knowledgeable to help lead me in the right direction in my Korean studies. I've been studying Korean at home and Herena has been incredibly helpful as a tutor! I went in knowing a tiny bit of very basic Hangul. Herena worked with me and with the book I had already purchased for studies. She is knowledgeable and personable. As a native Korean speaker I trust that she knows what she is talking about. Herena is also very friendly and relatable. Super cool that she uses the topics I am interested in for the lessons and offering cultural and historical facts as well. I've learned so much with her, you can't go wrong if she's your tutor!

Envious of non-native Korean people speaking the language to friends and family on streets, bar, and restaurants? I certainly can relate. As someone who learned multiple languages, I can empathize with your situation and teach you lessons I have learned myself from learning different languages and cultures. As someone who grew up in both United States and Korea, I can teach you not only the formal grammars but more importantly pick out what is most important in USEFUL Korean - ones you can actually use on an everyday basis! If this sounds good to you, whether you're a beginner/intermediate/expert in the language, feel free to reach out to me!

I have experience of teaching SAT to high school students, college students as an engineering school TA (Boston & Brown University), and even adults teaching Korean!

"I've been taking lessons with Suyeon for 5 weeks now and it has made a huge difference. Suyeon is patient, friendly, and encouraging. She makes the material easy to understand and is happy to answer questions. I began our lessons with almost no knowledge of the language and already I have learned how to construct basic sentences, ask and answer simple questions, politely order food, count, tell time, and conjugate verbs. I actually learned more in our first lesson than in the entire month I tried to teach myself, because even though I was very motivated to learn, much of the information I found on the internet was either incorrect or incomplete. So happy with my decision to hire Suyeon. I definitely recommend it!"
