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.

My first session with Park was great. She took time to understand what my goals are and was incredibly adaptable throughout, progressing through areas I already knew so that there was continuous progress. Very excited to continue my lessons!

I've been taking lessons from Mr. Park for a few months now, and I've been really enjoying them! I've taken group classes before, but this is my first 1:1 lesson experience, and Mr. Park does a great job catering and personalizing his approach to what you're interested in, even if it's not quite language related! For example, I told him I was looking to study Korean art history, and he sent me additional resources specific to that, and sometimes even devotes time to discuss different facets of it if it comes up in the lesson. He also provides a deep dive into the Sino/Native-Korean roots of different words which I personally find helpful and interesting. He is patient, encouraging, and personable, and does a fantastic job explaining things even if you don't quite get it the first time. Highly recommend!

Fun and extremely helpful first lesson

Cheol Hong is an incredible teacher. He's clearly so incredibly intelligent and gifted at helping you pronounce words that are challenging for you. He goes above-and-beyond checking homework, providing insights to Korean culture and history. It's been such a pleasure working with and learning from him so far. I can't recommend him highly enough!

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.
