Yeoonsoon is a great language instructor! She gets 5 stars from me.

I have just completed 5 sessions and will continue to work with her to improve my Korean Language Skills (between basic to intermediate level). She is patient, funny, and makes the lessons fun! I She is also organized in her lesson plans for each week. I would highly recommend her.
Nikki T.
Based from my first lesson with Yeonsoon, she is very nice and has clarity in her teaching. I am only rating her 4 stars, because it's my first lesson with her. I like the fact that she understands my korean level of understanding, which is basic to moderate, so she speaks to me in Korean and translating it in English at the same time.

I look forward to my future lessons with her and see what she has to offer to a student like me!

Today was my 105th lesson with Jihye. I started in Oct. 2017. I went back and watched the recordings of my first few lessons. OMG, she has brought me a long way. Over two years of lessons and her enthusiasm and patience has not diminished a single iota. Any questions I have while practicing outside of our sessions, she will take the time to reply and help me.
If a busy person like me is still here after 2 1/2 years, she is doing something right! I highly recommend her.

Ms. Jihye is a great teacher! She organizes her lesson plans very well and not a minute is wasted during our session. She gives a lot of examples and ensures her students understand the lesson completely. I'm really looking forward to our next session!
