Keulin is professional and polite. He is able to relate to my 17 year old daughter. I was slightly apprehesive about online classes for my daughter. Keulin does a great job keeping class on topic and still fun. He also has done a fantastic job with her being more advanced than most of his students.

I've been teaching Korean for one year. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read and write Korean and as time goes on you'll be able to speak. I typically use my own Korean power point presentation, and have the following tools available for your lessons: new vocabularies every lesson, grammars, and basic knowledge about Korea. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I took Jumi for piano lessons and she was prompt, pleasant and very considerate. I really liked that she was easy to talk to and took the time to assess my needs and create a lesson plan customized specifically for me. I plan to take more lessons with her in the future.

We took beginner lessons to learn Korean with Jumi. She is very patient and well prepared. She is also flexible in varying the lesson plan if there are other areas you are interested in. Overall, would recommend and look forward to taking more lessons with Jumi in the future.

Suyeon is an excellent instructor and has helped me expand my proficiency in medical Korean. Although I didn't expect her to know medical Korean terminology, she has gone out of her way to research terms to teach me how to use them properly. She will work with your needs and ways of learning. She is patient and very respectful. If anyone wants to learn Korean from a well qualified instructor who is easy going and patient then I would strongly consider Suyeon.

I have taken several classes with Ms. Yongju so I can say with experience that she is an excellent teacher. She truly understands the learning process and therefore knows how to impart knowledge that is comprehensible to her students. She thoroughly prepares for each class and makes sure you know the material before forward. I have taken other language courses before, but I would say that this one-on-one focus with Ms. Yongju, my learning seems to be accelerated. I look forward to my classes.

Recommendation

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.

Hello, I have worked at Kodaikanal International School in India for three years. KIS received the #1 school award by Educational World in India in 2013. It’s a co-ed residential school with beautiful surroundings on a high mountain. It was my honor to have my teaching history there with my terrific students and professional colleagues. I would like to share my recommendation from my principal here. You can find the original copy in my photos:

9 May 2012
To Whom It May Concern
It gives me great pleasure to write this recommendation on behalf of Youngju Lee. Youngju has taught Korean language and Arts at Kodaikanal International School since July 2009.

Kodaikanal International School is an international school located in Tamil nadu India in South India since 1901, making it one of the oldest schools in the country. It was originally a school for American missionaries. It has been an international school since 1974 and currently has a student body representing some 30 nationalities drawn primarily from within India but also in lesser numbers from various geographical regions that include countries located in Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Americas. KIS has also been a preferred choice of families of Indian origin settled abroad when they have wanted their children to have exposure to India and Indian culture because of its multicultural approach and the diversity of the staff and student body.

Youngju is an excellent teacher and I have enormous respect for her work in the classroom. She works well with students, is positive influence with the students and is able to encourage them to achieve their best. She uses a variety of approaches in her classes from group and individual work. She establishes a good relationship with her students, explains things carefully, prepares well and has a very effective yet relaxed delivery style. She has a positive rapport with her students and they demonstrate mutual respect and they enjoy learning. Students feel well supported in her class and enjoy her classes. She also cares for her students outside of the classroom and follows up on any concerns she or others may have of an individual.

Youngju has played an active role in extracurricular activities through her participation as chaperone on field trips, organizing events and student activities.

Youngju and her husband Stephen have settled well into the broader community in Kodaikanal and enjoy their life here with their family very much. In conclusion, I believe Youngju would make a good contribution to any school community. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information about Youngju Lee.
I recommend her wholeheartedly as an exceptional teacher and wish her well.
If more job specific information is required please contact me on principal@kis.in or on my mobile #----------.
