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

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!

My son and I had our first lesson with Hannah. It went very well. Hannah is engaging and patient. She really understands that studying Korean is no easy feat and takes the time to explain things to e Janice our comprehension.

I’ve taken a few classes with Hannah and learned a lot. Her style is patient, but in a way that challenged me to work hard and learn as much as possible, quickly and efficiently. She always came prepared to teach, has great classroom management skills and her lessons are engaging. If you would like to learn Korean, sign up now - you won’t be disappointed!

About Yeonsoon

여러분, 안녕하세요! 만나서 반가워요. 저는 여러분의 한국어 선생님 - 연순이예요. 저는 서울에서 거의 평생 나고 자랐어요. 저는 여러분들처럼 언어를 배우길 좋아하고, 여행을 좋아하고, 텔레비전을 보는 것도 좋아하고, 노래를 듣는 것도 좋아해요. 저 또한 이런 매체들을 이용해서 영어를 배웠고 이 방법은 언어를 효과적이면서도 재미있게 배울 수 있게 해준다고 생각해요. 저와 함께 한국어를 배울 준비가 되셨다면 언제든지 연락 주세요! :)

Hi, I am a Korean tutor. I was born and had been educated in Seoul, Korea. I love travel, TV shows, and lovely songs. I guarantee you these methods are quite effective and fun way to learn language. If there is somebody struggling to learn Korean or planning to go to Korea etc., please feel free to talk to me and I am glad to help you on that.

I graduated with my BA in English. Ever since I started tutoring Korean, I realize this is my thing. I teach all different levels, beginner, intermediate, and advance. For beginner-level students, it would be important not only to learn basic grammar an

d expressions but to realize how fun this language is to learn. For intermediate-level students, I will provide class materials with more complex grammar and expressions. For those who are upper-intermediate or advanced-level, we can think about what we use as our lesson materials. They can be new article, books, and movies etc.

I usually get an idea of teaching materials from students while they talk about their hobbies and interests. If you start a Korean lesson with me, you would not feel learning Korean is work but more like enjoying fun activity.

Let me know if you have any help with learning this language. It is alright to ask me about effective tips to study Korean or whatever you are curious about. I will look forward to hearing from you :-)

I had a great lesson! Yeonsoon encouraged speaking right off the bat and translated from Korean to English as she directed the lesson. I was very happy with her style!

I enjoyed that she spoke a lot of Korean during our lesson (even though I can't understand anything yet) so that my ear can get used to listening to it.

I have taught English to Koreans back in Seoul for more than 8 years, so I know exactly how different these two languages are.

Based on this understanding of how I need to approach non-Korean speaker especially whose mother tongue is English, I am confident that I can let you start studying Korean the easiest way and make the class fun with lots of introduction of Korean cultures and history.

About Suyoun

Hello! My name is Sue and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007.
From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun.

How can I make the classes fun? Along with language classes, I will share lots of Korean culture and history, so the students have always interest in the Korean culture. Once you are interested in that culture, it will be inevitable not to learn the language! Always remember! Language and Culture. These are 2 things that never be separated.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Sue is the best 선생님!! I contacted her for Korean lessons this summer and she responded immediately and was able to accommodate my time schedule. She’s a very patient and kind teacher and person. I had the hardest time with pronunciation and she was able to help me really hear how the words were supposed to be pronounced and made me feel more confident. She made every lesson fun and enjoyable — every teacher should be like her.

I am currently working as a Korean, ESL, and Japanese tutor. Because I am also a language learner (English and Japanese), I know why and in what area the students struggle when learning Korean especially English and Japanese speaking students. I am confident that I can help you to achieve your goal even if you speak languages other than English and Japanese.

I wanted to find someone who was knowledgeable to help lead me in the right direction in my Korean studies. I've been studying Korean at home and Herena has been incredibly helpful as a tutor! I went in knowing a tiny bit of very basic Hangul. Herena worked with me and with the book I had already purchased for studies. She is knowledgeable and personable. As a native Korean speaker I trust that she knows what she is talking about. Herena is also very friendly and relatable. Super cool that she uses the topics I am interested in for the lessons and offering cultural and historical facts as well. I've learned so much with her, you can't go wrong if she's your tutor!

Candice
"I just finished my first lesson with Youngju and she did not disappoint. Firstly, she is extremely prompt, with excellent communication skills and is supe
r personable. Due to a work conflict I had to change our first lesson date and time, literally at the last minute. Youngju was very easy to get a hold of via text and email. She responded within the hour and was more than willing to accommodate my changing schedule. Today, I finally had my first lesson and walked away feeling more than satisfied. Youngju has a very easy going personality and relaxed teaching style. Due to her extensive background in education she is able to find and impart commonalities and helpful hints to aid in learning. She also provided background and a little history to our lesson, which I found extremely interesting and will definitely allow me to grasp and more easily remember the building blocks of the Korean language. The lesson was paced very well, not too slow or fast. Another highlight was the excitement and encouragement flowing from Youngju. You can see that she truly loves to teach and because of that I am extremely excited to learn Korean from her. I know I will not only walk away knowing a language but also understanding the culture better."
