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.

I’m very stupid, and Jeehyae still finds a way to teach me. I’m also an incredibly painful annoyance, but she doesn’t stress vomit during my lessons (like my past tutors have).

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.

I have taught English to Koreans back in Seoul for more than 8 years, so I know exactly how different these two languages are.

Based on this understanding of how I need to approach non-Korean speaker especially whose mother tongue is English, I am confident that I can let you start studying Korean the easiest way and make the class fun with lots of introduction of Korean cultures and history.

About Suyoun
Hello! My name is Sue and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007.
From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun.

How can I make the classes fun? Along with language classes, I will share lots of Korean culture and history, so the students have always interest in the Korean culture. Once you are interested in that culture, it will be inevitable not to learn the language! Always remember! Language and Culture. These are 2 things that never be separated.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

I am a patient teacher who can speak Cantonese, Mandarin and English fluently when I teach Korean. I had been to Korean several times for exchange study, and I was also teaching Korean to some Qualcomm engineers that need to work with Samsung company in San Diego. Recently I moved to New York, and I am currently based in SoHo area as well as East Village area. I usually prefer to teach in Starbucks which makes me and my student easy to access all the time. My class usually focus on oral practice and cultural experience, however, the content of the class can be adjusted upon request. Thank you for choosing my class!

About Jingting
Hello! My name is Rubyanne, and I am a GradStudent in Fordham University. I can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, and English fluently. Therefore, I can always use the language other than English on teaching Korean or Chinese upon request. I used to be the Korean tutor of some Qualcomm Engineers in San Diego in order to help them getting achievements on working with Samsung company. Moreover, I used to teach Asian culture to K-12 students in San Diego schools. I enjoy the way to share the culture I am familiar with to those people who are interested in learning new culture. In addition, as my speaking ability of all the languages I can use are considered outstanding, I will be your good partner on doing oral practice, too!

I have experiences of teaching Korean (conversation, reading, writing and SAT) professionally at Korean School for kids and teenagers and casually for my friends and coworkers. I want my students to have more confident speaking in Korean anywhere from what they learn from my lessons. The lessons I give will be professional while being fun!
