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.

May I ask you first, what are your reasons for learning Korean? Are you interested in learning Korean but don’t know where to begin? Are you learning Korean for your career, or to work in Korea? Do you want to understand Korean songs or TV shows better? Everyone may have a different reason, and I'm curious to hear yours! Please let me know so I may help you to reach your goals faster.
Korean is a beautiful language, but it is very different from English in structure grammar. Also, there are lots of pronunciations that will require some familiarization. I will help you get past some of these obstacles and to stay motivated to keep learning until you reach your goals!

My first session with Panjin went very well. She assessed my needs and current knowledge level of the Korean language. It was a learning experience for both of us. I'm excited to what's in store for future sessions.

Seriously love Panjin. Her lessons are well thought out and she’s always so much fun. We’ve been learning to read Korean and say some common phrases. It’s been great and looking forward to future lessons. She’s always shares videos and pdfs as learning aides. She’s also good about recording our lessons so we can look back!
