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

About Jeehoon

안녕하세요! Love kPOP or kDrama?! Learn the language and no more subtitles!
Using TakeLessons or any kind of online-tutoring companies is new to me - but I am extremely confident to say that my teaching experiences will be able to provide great learning experience based on customized materials prepared by myself.
I'm currently a Graduate Teaching Assistant pursuing MS in Economics at FAU. I am originally from Seoul, South Korea and I've been in the states for the past ten year since I started studying here as an exchange student.
I am very outgoing and personable - don't worry if you are a shy person! I am always happy to listen to students' needs and wants.
I am very passionate about teaching and helping others - as one once said "To Teach in To Change One's Live Forever", every lesson for every student means a lot to me. Thus I hold gre

at responsibility and honor to do my job.

My first lesson with Jeehoon was great. He's a very engaging instructor that made the lesson enjoyable with much laughter. I feel like his teaching style will help me to grasp Korean better than I have with other teachers thus far. I am very hopeful to progress towards my goals quicker and more efficiently.

As an educator I have high expectations. I have tried two other tutors in the hopes of finding a tutor that would fit me. While the other tutors were very polite and comfortable to work with, Jeehoon exceeded my expectations. Jeehoon was prompt, organized, knowledgeable, and very comfortable to work with. He also has a great personality and sense of humor which helps to relax the student fostering a learning environment. I learned the most with him in one lesson than the other two lessons from my other tutors combined. If you truly want to learn Korean Language in a thorough manner, this is the tutor to work with. I am excited and look forward to my future sessions with Jeehoon.

I came to USA at age of 15 and learned English in Mid-West most of my life. I love using idioms in both language. In Korean up-to-dated direct translation of "you're welcome" is "what?" why? because they meant "oh no what are you talking about? don't mention it"
Let's learn the language while having fun. Take a lesson from me.

About Johan

Johan here and I love music! Nice to meet you fellow music lover.

I have been involved in music since I was just a child. It started with learning piano, then guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, djembe and so many more.

I’ve continued to learn and perfect my craft by being apart of different types of bands from small to large with varying genres of music. I also formalized my music education with a bachelor of Art in Music. Did I mention I’m also quite a harmonizer? Sign up today and maybe I’ll throw in some tips with your instrument lesson.

Johan is great with kids! My son is a very active child, and he was able to make the lesson fun and engaging. More than that, I enjoyed seeing Johan be creative, listen to the child, and make music fun, more than being it a lesson (per say). I highly recommend Johan!

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.

About Cheol Hong

I wish to share my experiences and knowledge with my students through teaching and learning Korean. I have a mastery of the Korean language that is broad and in depth, for I am a Korean native born and educated. I have a nuanced understanding of its culture, its history and its people and I am confident that there are few better fit to teach those who are interested in these.

I was born in 1965 in Korea and spent my life in the rigorous Korean public school system. I received my bachelor degree from Kyung Hee University and went on to Kyung Hee University Graduate School of Law where I received my law degree(1990, Master of Law). I was employed by LG Display in its Human Resources and Knowledge Management Department for 11 years and moved to the USA in 2008. I received my GED diploma in 2009 and after taking on several employment inter

ests here in the US, including completing a nursing program in 2010, I have come to own and manage a small business and am finally settled in with my family.

* Experience:

1. Human Resources Management: Recruiting, Interviewing, Selecting, Positioning, Compensation, Labor Relation Management, Wage Adjustment and Negotiation, Employ Satisfaction Survey and Analysis

2. Human Resources Development: Organization Development Project(Organization Culture Activity), Knowledge Management

3. Information Technology Related : Human Resources Management System Development and Operating in Corporation Resources Management System, Knowledge Management System Development, Operation and Maintenance

4. Adult Education: Knowledge Management Training Program Development, KM Lecturing, KM Facilitator Workshop Program Design / Operation / Evaluation

5. Small Business Management : Set-up, Operation, Recruiting, Account Management

6. Medical Knowledge : I received my certification as a Nurse Aide in 2010 and finished one year course in the Nursing Program

I have an extensive background in my experiences and education. This gives me the breadth of knowledge to educate students of Korean language, my mother tongue, on a wide range of fields and issues. As a native Korean I can provide intimate and insightful understanding of every aspect of Korean life and language. All you need to do is tell what your interests and goals are, and I can devise a program of study just for you.

I had my first lesson today, he is an amazing teacher. He has already given me so many resources to help me learn faster. I also have a much better understanding of proper pronunciation with just one lesson. I am looking forward to the rest of my lessons.

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!

To Whom It May Concern:

Lee Youngju taught at Jochiwon Daedong Elementary School for four years as a homeroom teacher and an English
specialist. She was very dedicated and devoted to her many teachings and administrative duties as well as to her students. I have observed that Teacher Lee is a responsible and passionate teacher who has broad experience and knowledge; however, notwithstanding these qualifications, she has an open mind and observes the rules of social etiquette. I recommend Ms. Lee in the confidence that she will be a superior teacher in your school. I know that she will bring her exceptional creativity and organization to any school she teaches in.
