Lisa is a wonderful teacher. She always is on time and comes prepared with new lessons each week. She is very in tune with my level of Spanish and provides materials that I can handle and challenge me to grow. I am very pleased with her tutoring. I would recommend her highly as a teacher for anyone.

Baltimore, MD

About Jenny

Hi. I'm Jenny.
I am Korean and I used to teach Korean language at high school for 5years.
I graduated from university in Korea and my major was Korean language education.
So, I think I have a lot of knowledge about Korean language and know well how to teach the students.
Also, I'm very interested in teaching Korean to foreigners and hope to be a friend with someone who is interested in Korean or Korean culture.
I can teach you not only the language but also culture like food, drama, history and kpop, if you want.
My English ability is intermediate or advanced, so I can teach and expla
in it in English as well.
I really appreciate your interest in Korea and it makes me to have a pride of my country.

Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.

Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!
