About Jihye
Hello, future students!

My name is Jihye and I teach Piano and Korean language. I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in LA, California. I graduated Kyung Hee University and earned Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.

I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools since 2005. In the past, I have met many K pop and K drama lovers so I decided to share my culture and language with them.

So far I have met many of passionate and enthusiastic students whom I feel very lucky to work with. I offer personalized curriculum to each of my Korean and piano students. Also, help students who prepare piano level exams such as CM, ABRSM, and SATII for the Korean language. I sometimes use clips of songs and dramas to help students who learn Korean.

Are you ready to learn?? Let's beg
in taking lessons!!

My 6 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Catherine for about 7 months now, and we couldn't be happier. After begging me for lessons, of course my child already hates practicing. But Catherine couldn't be more patient, encouraging my daughter so that she enjoys playing by the end of each lesson. Catherine also seems very flexible in her approach to teaching. While she does follow standard curricula for the beginner, she is also extremely open to allowing my daughter play the music she wants to play. Catherine has really tailored my daughter's learning to suit her taste and ability, which engages my daughter and encourages her to want to learn.

Cat has been an absolute pleasure to work with. My partner and I have both been taking in-home lessons with her every week for about two months now, and we've both grown much more comfortable and familiar with piano at our respective skill levels. I'd highly recommend Cat to anyone asking me about piano teachers!

I am a recent graduate from Northern Arizona University, but spent all of my childhood living in Seoul, South Korea. Because of this I have become tri-lingual (English, Korean, Japanese). While at university, I was the vice-president and a teacher of the Korean Club which specialized at teaching university students how to speak, write, and read the Korean language since the university did not offer classes. Being from, and spending my life in Korea, I am very familiar with the culture which would greatly help me teach you relevant phrases / vocabulary that would be useful in conversation.

About Jeehyae
I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. I spent my first 20 years in Korea. I earned a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management at Northern Arizona University. While completing my studies at NAU, I was the vice-president of the Korean club teaching college students the Korean language (reading, writing, speaking), and culture.

I have experience teaching Korean to students ranging in skill from beginner to advanced. Students can expect to learn not only the language but also Korean culture and how the language is actually used outside of textbooks.

I also worked at the international office at NAU and Ajou University in Korea. So because of this, I am very experienced in teaching and speaking to students who are either learning English or Korean, and have a strong ability to increase their learning speed.

Learning a language should be fun and enjoyable. I use methods that employees all senses which help you to learn more and to remember longer. I was born in Korea and learned English as living in the US. I'm currently learning Mandarin Chinese as well, so I can relate to those who are learning a new language. My previous work experience includes translation and interpretation at a Korean manufacturing company. Each lesson is customized based on your need; business English, conversational/free-talking, improving pronunciation or preparing interviews. I can help students of all ages, from children to adults for all levels of both English and Korean. Please feel free to let me know what your focus is or what you would like to improve. If you don't see an opening for a lesson, feel free to contact me and we can discuss.
I don't claim to know everything - language learning is a life-long process. But I can certainly help you to build the love of learning a new language!

안녕하세요.
저는 한국에서 태어나 미국에 수십년 살면서 영어를 배우게 되었습니다. 지난 몇년간은 통역, 번역에 종사한 경험도 있으며, 현재 중국어도 공부하고 있습니다. 새로운 언어를 배운다는게 어떤건지 직접 경험해 보았기 때문에 영어를 공부하시는 분들과 충분히 공감할 수 있습니다. 저는 영어를 완전히 정복했다고 느끼지는 않아요. 하지만 제가 직접 사용하는 실용적인 방법들, 그리고 다국어를 공부한 사랍들에게 배운 방법들을 공유하면서 같이 공부해 보시도록 격려 드립니다. 매 강의는 배우시는 분의 필요에 따라 맞춤형으로 진행됩니다.
언어는 평생 공부해야 비로소 터득한다고 하지만, 다른사람과 의미있는 대화를 하거나 정확한 정보를 공유할 수 있는 수준은 얼마든지 갖출 수 있습니다. 올바른 의도를 가지고 계시다면, 그리고 조금의 노력과 꾸준함을 투자하신다면 영어는 즐기면서 배울 수 있습니다.

Are you interested in all things Korean Culture such as, KPOP, Korean dramas, and movies? Learning Korean becomes addicting and surprisingly more easy with the help of Korean culture contents. I have contributed Korean-English subtitles for Viki and GomTV, and have had 3 years of experience as a translator for On Story, a Korean Broadcasting Company. With this knowledge, I have formulated a study plan that utilizes subtitles and different media contents to help read, speak, and understand Korean. Although Korean might be ranked as one of the most difficult languages, it is certainly beatable with the right tools. Shoot me a message to see if we are a great match!

About Ivey
Hey! I am a freelance translator, a research assistant, and a part-time tutor for LSATs at Varsity Tutors. I've recently graduated from Emory University and am planning to attend law school in the coming fall of 2018. As a Korean American, I have always enjoyed sharing my culture with friends and students, and am fascinated by how the "Korean Wave" has managed to bridge cultural gaps. I want to participate in such global conversations and help students learn Korean in the fun, entertaining way. If you are interested, please message me!

Ivey was my ESL tutor in college and later my Korean tutor. I needed to travel to Korea for an internship and she recommended the best books for conversational Korean, helped me with basic Korean skills and she even hooked me up with her friends in Korea for some cultural experience. She is a great tutor and a great person.

Ivey has a great sense of humor and is absolutely a delight to work with. I needed Korean lessons to prepare myself for TeachforAmerica in Korea and she made it super enjoyable with her lessons. She utilizes KDrama and Korean songs to supplement listening and conversational Korean. She even took into account some of my favorite Korean bands for supplements in the lessons. She likes to challenge you but makes it fun so it works out at the end. I would definitely recommend her. If you are a KPOP fan, she is your choice.

Hello,

I Just moved to America from Korea this summer! I was a kindergarten and Elementary teacher near Seoul for the last 7 years. I also have a Korean language certification.

I am good at gauging student level and interests. I am happy to modify any lesson to suit the needs of the individual student at that moment and with long-term goals in mind.

I will almost always be able to tell you what is right and wrong. However, if you have a very difficult grammar question I may have to get back to you. But I love the challenge!

So long as you have realistic goals in mind I can help you meet them. 파이팅!

I have shifting interests, I am currently into cooking and cake design. I like to make intricate flowers out of buttercream.

I largely learned English by watching Friends. There is no bad way to go about language learning so long as you put the time in! I would be happy to help you on your journey.
