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.

Hannah is an amazing teacher. My daughter loves learning with Hannah.

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!

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!

I've had four lessons with Cheol Hong. I am a complete beginner and he has provided the structure, learning materials, and pronunciation correction that I was not able to ascertain with self-study. He's extremely kind and encouraging and makes learning a pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.
Diane
I have been taking lessons with Instructor Cheol Hong for about a month and am very happy with my choice. I felt that his experience in the Korean workplace set himself apart from what other instructors offered, which is what influenced my decision. I am Korean-American, so I am very familiar with hearing and speaking the language, but wanted to properly learn to read and write to a more intermediate/advanced level. We both agreed it was best to start from the beginning and breeze through what I can until I hit my limit. I've also been challenged to write everyday, which has helped him gauge my level, and read newspaper articles, which are definitely way above my ability, but clearly great for improving. Instructor Cheol Hong is very patient, always makes sure you're following along/comprehending, and makes himself accessible throughout the week. I always look forward to my lessons!
Casey
I have basic but scattered language skills in Korean, and Mr. Park is very mindful of this and I'm happy with the pace and content of the lessons. I appreciate the time he takes to explain not just grammatical rules but social/pragmatic rules of usage.
