Hello. I was born in Korea and was raised there for more than 18 years. My first language is Korean, and I have been teaching students from take lessons and another academy. I can teach you from beginner level, and you will be able to see the improvement in speaking, writing, listening, and reading skills in Korean. If you are interested in focusing on only one skill or vice versa, we are always available to adjust our lessons according to our discussion. I know that learning another language is not easy. We will go through step by step, and you will feel more comfortable in opening your eyes to the language.

Seonjung (Hailey) is an amazing drawing teacher! I went to her with little experience and she has been able to break the drawing process down in a very clear and patient way. She makes your progress such a priority & my skills have definitely improved over the past months. It is truly wonderful learning with her!

Quinton works primarily with beginner to intermediate students putting an emphasis on grammar in a fun and interactive way. After living in South Korea for two years Quint realized that grammar structure was one of the main sticking points that made learning Korean so difficult for English speakers. As a result he uses these practices to help students take their language study to an entirely new level. 
Quinton has studied multiple languages ranging from Portuguese and Spanish to Mandarin, Korean and Vietnamese. As a native English speaker himself Quint has learned skills and techniques to explain Grammar in a simple yet relatable way for other English speakers. Quint’s philosophy is that the most effective way to learn a language is to have fun with it by talking about the things that spark your interest rather than dry lessons that can cause you to lose interest.

Quinton has been an incredible instructor. Being a native English speaker himself, he is able to understand different tactics and approaches to learning Korean that have allowed me to better retain information and apply it.
He’s made learning an Asian language much less intimidating than expected!

Had purchased 5 lessons with him and after 5 lessons I am buying more. Great teacher and was easy to learn from someone with Korean not as their first language but had learned it in Korea while living there.

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.
