I am very happy taking voice lessons with Lilly as evidenced by me willing to drive an hour to see her. She has a lot of knowledge and experience in singing and therefore understands my needs so that I can produce what she asks me to. I had no singing ability in the beginning and I was so embarrassed by my voice I couldn't even sing when I was alone. Now, I feel encouraged by the progress I have made and would highly recommend Lilly as a voice instructor.

I have had one lesson with Mr. Arron and it is enough to tell that he is a great teacher. He clearly knows how to play guitar. He is both encouraging and firm. He explained to me the expectations for my practice and what he wants me to learn by next week, I am very happy to have him as my guitar teacher.He is an amazing talent and provides me with much needed inspiration.

Exciting Korean lessons through K-pop and drama! Learn everyday words and expressions you can use right away with your Korean friends.

I can guide you to online resources for learning Korean, so that you can study on your own as well. I can also proofread and translate during the sessions.

There are 3 options you can choose. Let me know what you want to do.

I am a native Korean and I am aware of active Korean cultures. I was born and raised in Korea for 15 years and visiting Korea every year. Without understanding the culture, the language can not be learned perfectly. So I talk a lot about Korean cultures and life styles of its own as well while teaching the language. I also think that learning should be fun. Let's have a blast!

About Won
I lived in Korea for over 15 years and came to the States. I am a native Korean speaker and aware of active Korean cultures. I am a full time Graphic Designer. Being a firm believer that cultural competency is deeply related to its language and without understanding the culture, the language can not be learned perfectly. So I talk a lot about Korean cultures and life styles of its own while teaching the language. I also think that learning should be fun.

Anyone who wants to learn Korean both for fun and serious matter will be more than welcomed. I am bilingual speaking both English and Korean. Please contact me if you plan to visit Korea individually or in a group and would like to learn Korean beforehand or simply for any reasons. I will make your learning fun and easy.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Korean is a beautiful, deep language where some expressions that cannot be translated to its complete meaning unless you understand the language.

About claire
Greeting!

I've been tutoring in multiple subjects and paino/violin since I was a freshman in high school. I love it when students make progress and it is my passion to help them reach their goals. This builds self-confidence and leadership, which are necessary skills in this economy. I have a B.S. in Accounting from George Mason University with over 10 years of Accounting work experience.

Currently, I am preparing to sit for the teaching license with a concentration in 7-12 Mathematics. I have over two years of teaching experience at a private boarding school where I taught (including curriculum and lesson planning) Algebra, Pre-Calculus, TOEFL, ESOL (writing), Geography, and US history.

I would love to be a part of reaching your goals.

Dear SooJi,

You asked for my thoughts on you as a teacher, but I don't think I'll be able to explain those very easily. Your impact on my life is more than I can explain or show. Of all the things I've learned from you, I consider Korean to be of a lesser importance than the life lessons, friendship, and communication skills you've taught me, whether on purpose or not. I'm thankful for everything you've done for me. I'll never forget how understanding and compassionate you are, and I can only hope to grow up and be half the person you are now. In all honesty, you're the best teacher I've ever had, and now I can understand what people mean when they say "This teacher shaped who I am today" and I'll never forget on stop being thankful to them.
Thank you for being you<3 Thank you for being the best Korean/Life teacher <3 Thank you for being the most passionate, true, and honest teacher <3

SooJi.. I don't even know where to begin. She is an amazing teacher and just an amazing human being in general. I pick up things very easy but for some reasons, Korean was and is a real challenge for me. I'm not sure why this is. Maybe because I want to learn this more than anything else? Maybe my brain wants to work harder to get where my heart is? Who knows, but I do know why I'm ven progressing in this challenge. A good teacher can inspire hope, stimulate the imagination, and install love of learning. If that quote had a title, it would be SooJi. She is truly my only role model. I'm not exactly sure why she is this to me, but she is. I respect her so much and she inspires me all the time. Honestly, I can't imagine my life without her in it. SooJi means so much to me. More than what can be expressed with pretty little words. A teacher is supposed to give hope to students, but she does so much more. She IS so much more. She isn't just a teacher any more. She is my friend, my role model, my sister. Because of her, hears have changed, hearts have healed, and bonds have been created that some blonde little girls can't get anywhere else. Yes, sometimes SooJi criticizes us, but that's she's supposed to do. We know she cares even more when she does this because she wants us to grow. Without her, I don't think I would know anything nearly as close to what I know now. Not just the language, but also the culture. I wish to always have someone like SooJi in my life, someone who inspires and loves me. I miss you SooJi! Honestly, She is just too phenomenal. She has a natural give of teaching, making jokes with people, making students feel comfortable. She is excellent. I love her so much <3

My daughters started taking Korean lessons from SooJi about a year ago. SooJi teaches her grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and conversational phrases. My daughters' Korean language skills have improved dramatically with SooJi's teaching. SooJi explains things in a way that is easy to understand and her teaching has been a positive influence on my daughter.
