About Jihye

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 from Kyung Hee University and earned a Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.

I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools. 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 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.

Are you ready to learn?? Let's begin taki

About Jeehoon

안녕하세요! Love kPOP or kDrama?! Learn the language and no more subtitles!
Using TakeLessons or any kind of online-tutoring companies is new to me - but I am extremely confident to say that my teaching experiences will be able to provide great learning experience based on customized materials prepared by myself.
I'm currently a Graduate Teaching Assistant pursuing MS in Economics at FAU. I am originally from Seoul, South Korea and I've been in the states for the past ten year since I started studying here as an exchange student.
I am very outgoing and personable - don't worry if you are a shy person! I am always happy to listen to students' needs and wants.
I am very passionate about teaching and helping others - as one once said "To Teach in To Change One's Live Forever", every lesson for every student means a lot to me. Thus I hold gre

at responsibility and honor to do my job.

My first lesson with Jeehoon was great. He's a very engaging instructor that made the lesson enjoyable with much laughter. I feel like his teaching style will help me to grasp Korean better than I have with other teachers thus far. I am very hopeful to progress towards my goals quicker and more efficiently.

As an educator I have high expectations. I have tried two other tutors in the hopes of finding a tutor that would fit me. While the other tutors were very polite and comfortable to work with, Jeehoon exceeded my expectations. Jeehoon was prompt, organized, knowledgeable, and very comfortable to work with. He also has a great personality and sense of humor which helps to relax the student fostering a learning environment. I learned the most with him in one lesson than the other two lessons from my other tutors combined. If you truly want to learn Korean Language in a thorough manner, this is the tutor to work with. I am excited and look forward to my future sessions with Jeehoon.

Private Korean Teacher

Hello Korean lovers!! Do you want to learn Korean with a CERTIFIED and EXPERIENCED Korean teacher? I have been teaching for 30 YEARS including K-8 and COLLEGE as well as private tutoring in Korea, China and India. I am a student-centered, patient and dedicated teacher with teaching certificates from the Ministry of Education in Korea. My students have always been happy with my teaching because I always focus on students’ interests in what they are learning. I graduated from the graduate school of Seoul National University, the best university in Korea. Please check my profile and judge whether I can be your Korean teacher. I know everything Korean!! Let me share it with you!

About Youngju

Dear Prospective Students,

I know how to teach you the Korean language EFFECTIVELY and QUICKLY.

I’m a CERTIFIED teacher with 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE, from elementary school to college. I have had many international teaching experiences and live with a multilingual family. I also completed the Program for Training Korean Language Instructors for Foreigners. This means I am aware of what the most difficult problems are when students learn Korean and I can provide the most simple and effective ways to acquire the language quickly.

I am confident that I can teach you authentic Korean at ANY LEVEL.

I finished my academic history as far as the phd (I never finished my dissertation, alas). I received my Masters degree and completed all of my post graduate work at Seoul National University, which a point of particular pride with me; a

fter all, Seoul National University is the Harvard of Korea. I have a number of published works in my academic association's annual journal. And I have a Certification in Reading and Essay Instruction.

I also know KOREAN VALUES and CULTURE inside and out.

I was born in Korea and spent most time of my life there in a traditional family. I have a deep understanding of Korea and its history and life style which I could share with you. If you want to learn how to cook Korean food such as kimchi, seaweed rolls(sushi) or jabchea(noodles), of course, I can teach you! I’m a housewife, too!!

I can give you ADVICE about getting GOOD JOBS in Korea.

I taught in Korean public schools as a homeroom teacher, art teacher and English teacher. Most of my responsibilities as an English teacher were executed with native English teachers. As you know, there are many qualified English speakers in Korea who want to be full time English teachers. I worked with teachers from EPIK(English Program In Korea), TaLK(Teach and Learn in Korea) and even Fulbright scholars. Native English teachers and I worked together very well; indeed, I won an award, due, if I may say so, to my organizational pedagogical contribution. I interviewed prospective teachers, taught them how to teach and prepare classes, how to get along with students and other colleagues, housing matters, and so forth. (In addition, I can give you advice on how to apply to a Korean University and handle an interview as my husband taught for many years in Korean Universities.)

I am a certified and experienced teacher who can help you with your ambitions and needs with Korean.
Let’s have fun while improving your Korean Language ability on Skype, at my home, or at your place at your convenience!
I’m totally ready to work with you.

Let's get together!! See you then!!

******
I would like to post answers to questions that my prospective students usually put to me about my Korean lessons.

Q: Are you good with VISUAL LEARNERS and VERBAL LEARNERS ?

A: Yes, I'm good at that. I'm a trained teacher of Korean with more than 30 years experience.

I would like to say my teaching style varies depending on the learner's condition: age, learning style,present level in Korean, purpose of getting lesson, etc. What I usually do is use visual materials, songs and even physical gestures for children, since they have not fully developed their logical reasoning and use of abstractions. I also introduce online Korean practice programs. I also use these with adult learners who are totally beginners. Generally speaking, visual, audio and TPR approaches are more effective for beginners.

I give learners lots of chances to express what they are learning. I always link their Korean knowledge between what they learned and what they are learning. I give homework as much as they can handle, too. Regarding writing, we can share simple words or sentences on the Skype and the more you are advanced the more things we can do. One of my advanced learners is writing a diary and proofreads with me when we start every class.

Q: WHERE DO YOUR LESSONS START AT? Do they start with learning how to put the vowels and consonants together or just starting off with words you need to know?

A: Again, mine are individualized lessons. One of my students wants to just learn how to communicate verbally in Korean. It means he doesn’t care about written Korean. If the learner already knows the Korean alphabet and knows how Korean syllables are structured then I don’t need to repeat it. I don’t prolong the process or time without reason. Other than that, I start from vowels and consonants and how to combine them, and how to make sounds, and read, etc.

Q: Do you teach how to properly READ KOREAN?

A; I teach learners how to read Korean and let them read it and correct their mistakes. My pronunciation is very clear. Prior to my more than 20 years teaching history, I had worked for a Korean public TV station, KBS, as a reporter.

Q: Do you teach FORMAL and INFORMAL KOREAN because I know there is a difference between them.

A: Yes, I teach formal and informal Korean both, in addition to the Korean basic sentence structure. Of course, if you want to learn specific form only then I can do it for you. As I said, it’s all up to you.

Q: How do I PAY for the lessons?

A: All of the administrative work happens through takelessons.com except the actual class. It means you have to pay to takelessons.com. You can find how to do this on "How it Works" on the main page of takelessons.com homepage
(https://takelessons.com/students/how-it-works).

Q: WHERE the lessons occur?

A: My lessons have four possible venues.

1. At your place (presently not available): To know my travel area, pleace check "Select a location" on the top right of this my profile page( https://takelessons.com/profile/youngju-s1?online) in the box.

2. At teacher's place(presently not available): If you live in Baltimore and can come to my place then you can take face-to-face lessons. That is a choice too.

3. Online: Online lessons are conducted through live 1-on-1 video chats using my personal meeting room.

4. Online TakeLessons Classroom: I also teach online group classes.

Q: When the lessons are AVAILABLE?

A: You can find my availability at "View availability" on the top right of this profile page( https://takelessons.com/profile/youngju-s1?online) in the box. Once a schedule is set, the classes occur according to it. You can reschedule whenever you need to, just for a short time or longer as long as both sides are available.

Q: Is there some way we can schedule a "TRIAL" session with you?

A: Actually, I handle all requests through takelessons.com's direct messaging system until students are officially on my roster. You and I will receive all our contact info once you book lessons and we can communicate directly then. Sorry, this means there can be no trial session short of five lessons, which is the minimum they allow. But trust that 100% SATISFACTION is GUARANTEED!! :-)

I hope that I gave you the answers what you are looking for. If you have more questions then never hesitate to ask. I welcome questions from learners!!

I want to take the opportunity to say that my Korean teacher, Youngju Lee, has been an amazing teacher for me this past year. I was altogether without any ability to speak or write the Korean language at the beginning, not one syllable could I understand, but there I was, engaged to a Korean girl whose parents were quite conservative. I had to set them at ease and show them I welcomed Korean language and culture into my life. Ms. Lee started me with the basics, the written alphabet, the vowel and consonant pronunciations. She was always clear and patient and her lessons were well paced to my achievement; it was a well conceived plan, each lesson leading into the next and there is always a sense of accomplishment as each lesson was integrated into the previous. Since Ms. Lee is a highly educated native of Korea, she knew everything, all the intimate details about greetings and levels of respect in Korean culture. My meeting with my wife's parents was a success, and they were very pleased by how well I understood the Korean side of things. I remember at dinner handing the kimchi bowl to my father in law I remembered: two hands, not one! My bows were well rehearsed as well. We had a great time together and I owe it to Ms. Lee's teaching. I have enjoyed our time together and will continue to do so in the future. Thank You, Ms. Lee!

I taught myself Korean. So, I understand the struggles that everyone goes through when learning Korean and I have figured out all the tricks and ways of learning the language. I have perfected the Korean accent, have received a certificate from the Korean government confirming my Korean language abilities, and I have taught a Korean class in association with IYF (International Youth Foundation) at Temple University.

About Natalie

*** I am currently living in London so my time zone is British Summer Time (EST +5)! Please remember that when scheduling lessons, Thank you!***
I understand how hard it is to be able to learn a second language. Having taught myself Korean, I have found how to have fun learning a new language, how to effectively learn the language, and how to squeeze it into a busy schedule. That's why I am flexible with my teaching schedule. If the one posted on my page doesn't work for you, email me and we can work something out!

I have been to South Korea four times and have intensively studied both the South and North Korean cultures, so feel free to ask me any questions. I want this class to be focused on your needs and what you want to learn - whether it be vocab, grammar, culture, or everything!

I can read, write, speak, make jokes, and even

make play-on-word jokes in Korean. I have received a certification from the Korean government confirming my proficiency in the Korean language, and I have taught a Korean course in association with IYF (International Youth Foundation) at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have also studied at Yonsei University (연세대학교), one of South Korea's top schools and the country's oldest school, for the spring of 2018 and will be continuing my education at SOAS in London this upcoming fall for my Masters.

The lessons are for my 16 year old daughter, so I haven't experienced them myself. But I can tell from all of the information she passes on, that Natalie is an excellent teacher. She customizes the lessons to my daughter's interests and skill level. I am so glad that I was able to get connected to her through take lessons.com.

Natalie is an incredible Korean teacher. Her lessons are always relevant, engaging, and useful. And having learned Korean herself, she knows the challenges that English speakers face and is great at helping others overcome those challenges. I owe it to Natalie for helping me get my Korean to where it is today!

I can say to my students that we will have fun, interesting classes that cover culture, formality, pronunciation, and more. I was inspired to become a Korean teacher by my love of Hanguel (Korean language), and I want to help people who want to learn about it.

I will be your encouraging teacher. I am looking forward to meeting you & helping you to develop your Korean skills.

안녕하세요! Korean will make more sense when you understand the culture.
YES, we will explore different situations where a Korean phrase might fit.
YES, we will share Korean memes to get colloquial.
YES, we will get practice intonation using effective scatting method. (Ask me about the scatting method)

I am learning Mandarin myself. 24 years old but really an AH-JUM-MA at heart.

About Heyinn

I am probably one of the bubbliest people you'll ever meet.

I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelors in Materials Science and Engineering. My desire to serve and promote progress shines through the most when there's a learning opportunity for both parties.

Fun fact: my mom is a traditional Korean instrumentalist (plus Korean fan dance)
She influenced me in creativity.

Korean language students can quickly access authentic learning materials. The pronunciation will be enhanced through my own technique called "scatting sound method". The method was developed from my own observation of the language and my love for teaching my friends Korean.

Dance is liberating if you can master a few movements to own for yourself. When I struggled with eating disorder, dance helped me cope with anxiety. Throughout college, I independently studied

a particular dance called waacking and k-pop. As a result, I have accumulated know-hows through experiment.

As a professional engineer, my goal is to help realize what it means to be efficient learner. If it takes a tweak in system, pedagogy, or communication to help you unlock for yourself a Korean tongue or a freestyle dance soul, I am here to hear your story and cooperate.
