안녕하세요 여러분!
Hello, all!

This is Julia, a certified Korean tutor. I am a native Korean speaker and I also was a Korean language teacher at a Korean-American language school in the U.S.

제가 여러분에게 3가지 질문이 있습니다.
I have three questions for you.

1. 한국어 알파벳을 빠른 시간내에 숙달하고 싶으세요?
Do you want to master the Korean alphabet quickly?

2. 그럼 혹시 자음, 모음, 낱자, 문법 등 어려운 용어를 암기하세요?
Then, do you memorize terminology words such as consonants, vowels, and grammar?

3. 이미 한국어 공부를 시작했으면, 쓰기나 읽기, 말하기와 듣기를 따로 하세요?
If you have already started studying Korean, do you write or read, speak and listen separately?

The answer above is that if you get the right teaching method and learning materials, you can realize it.

Oh, wait! One last thing, but not the least is to enjoy your mistakes to improve your Korean language skills! :)

I hope I work with you soon.

* Please do not hesitate to ask me if you have any question or if you want a lesson schedule for different times and days.

📢 CANCELLATION, RESCHEDULING, AND NO SHOWS
If you need to reschedule or cancel a lesson, I need to be notified 24 hours in advance. If you ask to change after this 24-hour period I will have to charge you the full price of the lesson. This same rule applies if you are over 15 minutes late and you have not contacted me beforehand. I adjust my life and schedule around these lessons, so please understand why I need to be strict about this type of situation.

➫ Over the course of 7 years, I have taught English at a cram school, secondary school, and one-to-one tutor sessions in Korea. During my graduate school, I was a teaching assistant for colleges. I checked the college students’ homework and gave them feedback. I am very familiar with online learning technology and homework review.

➫ ABOUT LESSONS
My lessons are basically in Korean. So, I will try to speak Korean as much as possible. But, I still teach in English. My lesson plans are very ✪ personalized. I teach ages 15 and up.

This was my very first session and it was great. We jumped right into work after we talked about my starting level. She was very patient and very easy to talk with. I loved the fact that she broke down the sounds to me from how the tone should sound to how my face should move for certain vowels and consonants. I can't wait until second session.

She is wonderful! Firm but fair. And very helpful with materials. I’m learning so much so fast and want even more. HIGH HIGH HIGH recommend if you want to learn Korean.

Mr. Park does an amazing job at teaching Korean. I have been learning Korean from him for over half a year now. He is very patient, understanding, motivating and knowledgeable about Korean culture and language. He makes the language learning so much more fun and intuitive. I absolutely enjoy working with him and highly recommend him as your Korean instructor. At the end of a learning session with Mr.Park, I promise you’ll always log off with a sense of accomplishment and a smile.

Mr. Cheol is a wonderful tutor. Enthusiastic and really invested in you learning consistently and correctly!
Crystal M.
My first time using this tool and I’m not disappointed! I’m an American born Korean so I understand pretty well but want to brush up on speaking, reading, and writing. I was pleasantly surprised how prompt mr. Hong was sending all of the needed curriculum and instructions right when you sign up. He also caters every lesson to each individual. He can see where your strengths and weaknesses are so he knows what to focus his lessons on. His classes consists of not only learning Korean but the history behind it which makes things very interesting! I’m excited to see how I progress in the upcoming weeks!
