Suyeon is really kind and a great instructor!
Lisa
Suyeon is wonderful and patient, and having her as a tutor is so crucial to learn the nuances about how people actually speak Korean in real life. Had I tried to rely solely on books, I would be learning archaic terms and would not ever have a chance to blend in.

I am really enjoying having Woo as an instructor. He spends a lot of time working with pronunciation in the beginning, and targeting where I was weakest. I have been extremely impressed with his instruction technique, and already feel like I am learning a lot. Definitely recommend him as an instructor.

"I have attended 4 classes in Korean for Beginners and 1 Intro to Korean conversation class. Ms. Jihye L. has a easy style and natural ability for managing a group lesson of students at different levels. She is not overly formal, and when we are lost or confused, she is in no rush but helps us get through the topic at our own speed. She explains well the details regarding grammar, verb forms, and the levels of formality or politeness, as she writes the needed words on the whiteboard behind her. I think she understands that we will not and cannot learn something new in one shot, but only through patient trial and error."
