About Yeonsoon

여러분, 안녕하세요! 만나서 반가워요. 저는 여러분의 한국어 선생님 - 연순이예요. 저는 서울에서 거의 평생 나고 자랐어요. 저는 여러분들처럼 언어를 배우길 좋아하고, 여행을 좋아하고, 텔레비전을 보는 것도 좋아하고, 노래를 듣는 것도 좋아해요. 저 또한 이런 매체들을 이용해서 영어를 배웠고 이 방법은 언어를 효과적이면서도 재미있게 배울 수 있게 해준다고 생각해요. 저와 함께 한국어를 배울 준비가 되셨다면 언제든지 연락 주세요! :)

Hi, I am a Korean tutor. I was born and had been educated in Seoul, Korea. I love travel, TV shows, and lovely songs. I guarantee you these methods are quite effective and fun way to learn language. If there is somebody struggling to learn Korean or planning to go to Korea etc., please feel free to talk to me and I am glad to help you on that.

I graduated with my BA in English. Ever since I started tutoring Korean, I realize this is my thing. I teach all different levels, beginner, intermediate, and advance. For beginner-level students, it would be important not only to learn basic grammar an

d expressions but to realize how fun this language is to learn. For intermediate-level students, I will provide class materials with more complex grammar and expressions. For those who are upper-intermediate or advanced-level, we can think about what we use as our lesson materials. They can be new article, books, and movies etc.

I usually get an idea of teaching materials from students while they talk about their hobbies and interests. If you start a Korean lesson with me, you would not feel learning Korean is work but more like enjoying fun activity.

Let me know if you have any help with learning this language. It is alright to ask me about effective tips to study Korean or whatever you are curious about. I will look forward to hearing from you :-)

I had a great lesson! Yeonsoon encouraged speaking right off the bat and translated from Korean to English as she directed the lesson. I was very happy with her style!

I enjoyed that she spoke a lot of Korean during our lesson (even though I can't understand anything yet) so that my ear can get used to listening to it.

For the past two years or so, Yeonsoon has been a patient and encouraging teacher for my 18-year-old daughter. Absolutely excellent!

I am currently working as a Korean, ESL, and Japanese tutor. Because I am also a language learner (English and Japanese), I know why and in what area the students struggle when learning Korean especially English and Japanese speaking students. I am confident that I can help you to achieve your goal even if you speak languages other than English and Japanese.

I wanted to find someone who was knowledgeable to help lead me in the right direction in my Korean studies. I've been studying Korean at home and Herena has been incredibly helpful as a tutor! I went in knowing a tiny bit of very basic Hangul. Herena worked with me and with the book I had already purchased for studies. She is knowledgeable and personable. As a native Korean speaker I trust that she knows what she is talking about. Herena is also very friendly and relatable. Super cool that she uses the topics I am interested in for the lessons and offering cultural and historical facts as well. I've learned so much with her, you can't go wrong if she's your tutor!

안녕하세요! Korean will make more sense when you understand the culture.
YES, we will explore different situations where a Korean phrase might fit.
YES, we will share Korean memes to get colloquial.
YES, we will get practice intonation using effective scatting method. (Ask me about the scatting method)

I am learning Mandarin myself. 24 years old but really an AH-JUM-MA at heart.

About Heyinn

I am probably one of the bubbliest people you'll ever meet.

I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelors in Materials Science and Engineering. My desire to serve and promote progress shines through the most when there's a learning opportunity for both parties.

Fun fact: my mom is a traditional Korean instrumentalist (plus Korean fan dance)
She influenced me in creativity.

Korean language students can quickly access authentic learning materials. The pronunciation will be enhanced through my own technique called "scatting sound method". The method was developed from my own observation of the language and my love for teaching my friends Korean.

Dance is liberating if you can master a few movements to own for yourself. When I struggled with eating disorder, dance helped me cope with anxiety. Throughout college, I independently studied

a particular dance called waacking and k-pop. As a result, I have accumulated know-hows through experiment.

As a professional engineer, my goal is to help realize what it means to be efficient learner. If it takes a tweak in system, pedagogy, or communication to help you unlock for yourself a Korean tongue or a freestyle dance soul, I am here to hear your story and cooperate.

Hi, my name is Suzanna! I have lived in Korea for a while due to my parents' jobs, I have been going back and forth between Korea and the states and am fluent in both languages. I have done private lessons in both countries for around 5 years now, and my students think that my class is fun and easy to understand! I am also able to text or call if you have a question to ask even if its not during the lesson hours!

"Youngju is such a wonderful teacher! She has helped me grow as I learn Korean and the way she teaches makes it very simple to learn and to remember vocabu
lary. I started teaching myself Korean a few months ago but really wanted the chance to interact with someone because I learn better that way and she has made me feel very comfortable and I look forward to class every week. If you're considering a Korean teacher, I highly recommend her. Not only does she teach you the language, but she also teaches me things about the culture that I did not know already. This is my first time having a Korean teacher and I am very happy that I chose Youngju."

"I recently began taking lessons with Hannah and it has been a wonderful experience. I went in intimidated at the thought of learning such a difficult lang
uage from scratch, but Hannah has been a very helpful and encouraging instructor and makes the language so much more manageable. I've been rather amazed by how much Korean I have been able to pick up in such a short time and have no doubt that I can become fluent eventually under her instruction. Anyone interested in learning Korean should absolutely take lessons with Hannah!"

"MS YOUNGJU IS THE BEST! Thank you so much for helping me finally learn Korean! How fun and interesting it is when someone really knows how to teach. Ms Yo
ungju will guide you at your pace and teach you all you need to know about the language and culture. Soon i will marry my Korean fiancee and it was very important for her family that i learn more about their traditions. After a few weeks, im able to put sentences together and share in dinner table conversations. They are all very proud of my progress. Thank you teacher!"

"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 managin
g 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."
