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

Jihye is very personable and easy to talk to. She is an experienced teacher and does a great job at making you feel comfortable from the very first lesson. My primary purpose was to learn Korean for work and she was able to customize a plan specific to my needs. Would highly recommend Jihye for future students!

A side note: the lessons go by very quickly and in order to maximize your time, I would recommend purchasing lessons by the hour.

I'm originally from Korea and moved to the states 13 years ago. I have been taught Korean for non Koreans since then. I teach grammar, vocabulary, speaking and so on depending on which you the most focus on. For korean Americans, they mostly have a trouble with vocabularies and understanding the complicated articles and news so I use them as materials when we have a conversation.

I usually use a book and hand out for a lesson.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

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.

I am so happy to have finally found the perfect language instructor through TakeLessons! Jeehyae is incredibly patient and willing to help me understand Korean at my pace. I can always count on Jeehyae whenever I feel stumped and would like to review anything to improve my foreign language abilities. I can't wait for my next lesson :) Thank you Jeehyae!

My son, Dade has been taking piano lessons with SooJi for four years now and unfortunately we have to stop as she moved to a new city. She is an absolutely gifted and exceptionally talented pianist and teacher. As a parent, I am engaged in every lesson, observing what my son is learning. Even if when he is tired, not fully prepared, SooJi never stops being kind to him. She always gives helpful tips for effective practice and progress. My son never stops smiling and laughing. Sometimes I join the lesson and also learn stuff and both my and my son just learn tons of new stuff from her lesson. Under SooJi's coaching, my son already finished two solo recitals, 40 minutes each. It is a REAL progress and I was really proud of my son, as he didn't know anything about music before meeting SooJi, and now he is able to play simple songs for people without getting nervous!
I also teach so I know this for sure. Teaching is a natural gift. Someone can be really good at something but might not be good at teaching. SooJi is a total gifted teacher. She knows what to teach, how to teach, what to use, how to deal with students and conflicts, and she is able to solve problems that my son had during practice. Whenever she says something, my son is like " now I got it!" and he is so happy learning from her.
She is an exceptional talent in performing piano as well. I asked her to play in my and my wife's wedding few weeks ago and she played few songs and it was absolutely gorgeous. I am just really sad and disappointed that she is not able to teach him anymore and I can not have fun with them again. But I know she will be literally the best piano teacher ever in whatever years from now. When you see her, you will clearly feel this: she is very professional, yet kind and super funny and silly. She is super talented, yet so humble. She is really good with any kinds of students, she just knows how to treat them differently.
I can see SooJi has a natural gift of teaching, and I do hope she comes back and teach my son again later. Thanks for the four years of teaching SooJi! We love you dear!

She was an outstanding teacher with an exceptional talent in piano performance and teaching. She is very knowledgeable. She stayed focused and she is passionate about the pieces and demonstrated a lot on the pieces. I can also tell she is a very good pianist because she was able to illustrate everything I had to know in such a short amount of time. Another thing I really appreciated was how quickly and fully she was able to communicate with me about the lesson times and any questions I had for playing. I am so thankful for her encouragement, smile, jokes, and all the tips she gave me in the lesson. She is a fantastic teacher for sure, and I definitely recommend her. She surely has a gift of teaching.

Dear SooJi,

You asked for my thoughts on you as a teacher, but I don't think I'll be able to explain those very easily. Your impact on my life is more than I can explain or show. Of all the things I've learned from you, I consider Korean to be of a lesser importance than the life lessons, friendship, and communication skills you've taught me, whether on purpose or not. I'm thankful for everything you've done for me. I'll never forget how understanding and compassionate you are, and I can only hope to grow up and be half the person you are now. In all honesty, you're the best teacher I've ever had, and now I can understand what people mean when they say "This teacher shaped who I am today" and I'll never forget on stop being thankful to them.
Thank you for being you<3 Thank you for being the best Korean/Life teacher <3 Thank you for being the most passionate, true, and honest teacher <3

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.

Hi, my name is Sooji. I am a native Korean from South Korea. I have been certified from the Vancouver International Language Academy. In my Alilang Korean studio, you will be given daily words, verbs, adjectives, grammar lists for self-study. Plus, I will provide recordings for pronunciations, sentence structure, and up-to-date information about our lesson plans.

As a language teacher, I don't only teach "Korean language" but I also provide information about Korean culture. From my experience in Canada, language is closely related to culture. I will be giving you details about how Korean culture works, and the importance of K-pop culture and why people want to get to know about Korean language and culture.

About Sooji
I'm a professional native Korean teacher from South Korea, and has been certified by the Vancouver International Language Academy.

For each lesson, students will be provided with daily vocabulary lists and grammar guide along with pronunciation recordings made by a native Korean speaker. As an instructor, I will guide each student in an enjoyable learning manner that each can learn the language and develop their communication skills in a timely manner.

I've been teaching Korean for six years, 4 years in Cleveland, Ohio, and now 2 years in Baltimore, Maryland, as the artistic director of Alilang Korean. "Alilang" is a traditional Korean song, which combines Korean heritage, history, and unity of all Koreans. As a Korean teacher, I'll be responsible for making each lesson enjoyable but also a learning-boost. Students will be able to und
erstand the language, its simulation and pronunciation, communication skills, and the understanding of Korean culture.

Did you know that the Korean alphabet is based on the shape of your lips, tongue, and throat while pronouncing that letter?

I learned English and Korean at the same time. Thanks to that, I know how words and ideas connect across American and Korean culture. I can give context and full explanations of the little oddities that even other native Korean speakers aren't aware of.

Plus, if you're in the Grand Rapids, MI area, we can have the tutoring at your home or a nearby library.
