Private Korean Teacher

Quinton works primarily with beginner to intermediate students putting an emphasis on grammar in a fun and interactive way. After living in South Korea for two years Quint realized that grammar structure was one of the main sticking points that made learning Korean so difficult for English speakers. As a result he uses these practices to help students take their language study to an entirely new level. 
Quinton has studied multiple languages ranging from Portuguese and Spanish to Mandarin, Korean and Vietnamese. As a native English speaker himself Quint has learned skills and techniques to explain Grammar in a simple yet relatable way for other English speakers. Quint’s philosophy is that the most effective way to learn a language is to have fun with it by talking about the things that spark your interest rather than dry lessons that can cause you to lose interest.

Quinton has been an incredible instructor. Being a native English speaker himself, he is able to understand different tactics and approaches to learning Korean that have allowed me to better retain information and apply it.
He’s made learning an Asian language much less intimidating than expected!

Had purchased 5 lessons with him and after 5 lessons I am buying more. Great teacher and was easy to learn from someone with Korean not as their first language but had learned it in Korea while living there.

I've been taking 1:1 Korean lessons with Park Cheol Hong for a year now and I cannot recommend him enough as a teacher. He is incredibly dedicated, patient, kind, and invested in his students' growth. He's willing to check homework and answer questions between lessons, and can answer every follow-up question / context question I pose! I started with virtually zero Korean language familiarity but can now have conversations with my dad (who is Korean). Park Cheol Hong provides helpful supplementary worksheets and videos to help me better understand concepts and makes topics relevant to my daily life. I absolutely plan to continue taking lessons as long as I can!
Tracie R.
I've been learning Korean with Cheol Hong since April (it's August 30th). He is an incredibly dedicated teacher, patient, understanding and funny. He encourages me to practice my Korean every day (which I do) and he carefully reviews each submission between lessons to help me get better. I'm adopted and wanted to learn Korean so I could better connect to my Korean heritage (my grandmother is Korean) and I have learned so much during my studies. I would highly recommend Cheol Hong to anyone who is interested in learning Korean. He's the best!
Jessica
My daughter's first lesson with Mr. Park was wonderful. He was thorough, engaging and gave her lots of encouragement throughout the lesson. The material he sent afterward to help with her homework between lessons will be very helpful. She can't wait for her next session with Mr. Park.

I also have three years of broad experience living, working, and doing volunteer work in South Korea. I excel at simplifying Korean grammar and helping students quickly accelerate from beginner to intermediate, and intermediate to advanced. I am a strong partner for accountability in your own individual study and am also an excellent conversation partner. And if there's something I don't know I can always ask my beautiful South-Korean wife, Eunjeong.
