Jihye is super easy to work with and talk to. If you feel shy about your pronunciation you don't have to worry with this class because she will work with you and explain things very well.

Jihye is great! Just finished our first lesson and had a lot of fun. She's very patient and understanding. She explained concepts and pronunciations thoroughly. The material covered was on par for my level so that was great! Definitely looking forward to future lessons!

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.

Jee has a great personality and is a great teacher. In addition to teaching the language he helps the student understand about Korean culture which helps the student understand when formal or informal language is used. I am just a beginner.

I have only been taking Korean lessons with Youngju Lee for a few months but am improving at a rapid pace. She emphasizes thinking in Korean and stretching comprehension by constructing sentences in Korean, a challenging aspect that allows me to memorize more effectively and write more fluently! We move quickly, but I am always able to clarify ideas I don’t understand or request specific vocabulary I am interested in. Last night, I ordered food at a Korean restaurant in Korean, which was daunting at first but ultimately motivating. (The waitress was both surprised and impressed, and said that my pronunciation was good!) Youngju presents so much cultural background and is such a kind individual. I look forward to having more lessons with her!
