Classes with Arron have been really helpful. I think if you have classes with him, you're getting a great value. It seems very important to him that I understand what he's been teaching and that we complete the planned amount of work for each lesson.
Not only that, but he has even been kind enough to extend his teaching beyond the virtual classroom by answering questions that I've had between classes through messages. It is so helpful to have someone who knows what he's talking about to answer the tough questions that are too hard to find the answers to with Google.

I really appreciate your teaching. Thank you, teacher Arron.

Do you want to know more about Korea and the language?
I can help you.
I am an experienced Korean language partner from University of Miami for college students since 2015.
From beginner to intermediate, I will be your Korean conversation partner and teacher.

About Hyojung
Hello, my name is Leann Hyojung Cho.

When I was 5 years old, I started my piano training in classical and jazz piano.

I studied Jazz and Pop Piano at the Post Modern Music Dept. at the very famous Kyung Hee University (in South Korea). This is the same school that produced pop stars like Rain, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, Primary, Big Bang’s GD and Daesung, TVXQ’s Yunho and Yoochon to name a few.
Since I was in College, I’ve been teaching pop and jazz piano to a variety of students, from beginner to the experienced, at all age levels. I understand every student is not the same, so I make it a priority to adapt my teaching style to match a person’s learning style to maximize the learning session.

While providing lessons to a variety of students, I joined multiple bands and jazz groups playing various genres such as, alternative rock
, hip-hop, pop, and fusion. In these groups, I played piano concerts, played for various video projects, and also multiple studio recordings.

After I graduated with my Bachelors, I wanted to develop my music knowledge as a jazz composer. Therefore, I prepared and studied hard, and was admitted to the very competitive University of Miami Studio Jazz Writing program which is top 3 in nation for music programs. Since then, I’ve made Miami my home. In addition to playing music, I have been teaching Korean to UM students in their Direct Independent Language Studies program.

In Miami, my music creativity has grown and I have met amazing musicians. From 2011 to the present, I have arranged, composed, and continue to perform in various fields.

I believe my various experiences will help me teach you to learn the piano in any style you choose. Doesn’t matter who you are, what your experiences are, I will guide you to learn the piano, whether it be for professional reasons or recreationally.

I came to USA at age of 15 and learned English in Mid-West most of my life. I love using idioms in both language. In Korean up-to-dated direct translation of "you're welcome" is "what?" why? because they meant "oh no what are you talking about? don't mention it"
Let's learn the language while having fun. Take a lesson from me.

About Johan
Johan here and I love music! Nice to meet you fellow music lover.

I have been involved in music since I was just a child. It started with learning piano, then guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, djembe and so many more.

I’ve continued to learn and perfect my craft by being apart of different types of bands from small to large with varying genres of music. I also formalized my music education with a bachelor of Art in Music. Did I mention I’m also quite a harmonizer? Sign up today and maybe I’ll throw in some tips with your instrument lesson.

Johan is great with kids! My son is a very active child, and he was able to make the lesson fun and engaging. More than that, I enjoyed seeing Johan be creative, listen to the child, and make music fun, more than being it a lesson (per say). I highly recommend Johan!

Johan is talented, passionate, and an all around positive force that everyone needs in an instructor. He can help you discover what it is you really want to get out of piano/music, and then guide you to where you want to go.

Hi, my name is Sooji. I am a native Korean from South Korea. I have been certified from the Vancouver International Language Academy. In my Alilang Korean studio, you will be given daily words, verbs, adjectives, grammar lists for self-study. Plus, I will provide recordings for pronunciations, sentence structure, and up-to-date information about our lesson plans.

As a language teacher, I don't only teach "Korean language" but I also provide information about Korean culture. From my experience in Canada, language is closely related to culture. I will be giving you details about how Korean culture works, and the importance of K-pop culture and why people want to get to know about Korean language and culture.

About Sooji
I'm a professional native Korean teacher from South Korea, and has been certified by the Vancouver International Language Academy.

For each lesson, students will be provided with daily vocabulary lists and grammar guide along with pronunciation recordings made by a native Korean speaker. As an instructor, I will guide each student in an enjoyable learning manner that each can learn the language and develop their communication skills in a timely manner.

I've been teaching Korean for six years, 4 years in Cleveland, Ohio, and now 2 years in Baltimore, Maryland, as the artistic director of Alilang Korean. "Alilang" is a traditional Korean song, which combines Korean heritage, history, and unity of all Koreans. As a Korean teacher, I'll be responsible for making each lesson enjoyable but also a learning-boost. Students will be able to und
erstand the language, its simulation and pronunciation, communication skills, and the understanding of Korean culture.

I have given out language lessons more than 10 years since I was at college. It was always 1:1 lesson. My students liked to learn and had fun from learning words and expressions. Learning a foreign language is definitely fun. So I pursue "fun-learning" lesson with you. I am also interested in linguistics. I can correct your pronunciation close to native speakers.

As a person that learned this language too, I have experience and know how hard learning a new language can be. I like to apply fun ways to learn the Korean language, to make it easier for my students to fully adapt to this language. For example: games,and singing. Also, give advise on how to continue with their studies, so they do not fall behind.
