Hannah is an amazing teacher. My daughter loves learning with Hannah.
Colin
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 language 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!
Heather P.
My son and I had our first lesson with Hannah. It went very well. Hannah is engaging and patient. She really understands that studying Korean is no easy feat and takes the time to explain things to e Janice our comprehension.

I have really enjoyed Zelda’s class!! She is brilliant on what she does.
Wesley
Zelda is a fantastic singing teacher. I felt a good vibe when I read her bio. I started out doing a half hour lessons and changed it to hour long lessons on the first lesson. She has helped me advance in my skills. She makes it relaxing, right off the bat, when you walk in and she offer's you tea. She is very patient and helpful. I've taken five lessons and signed up for five more.

"She helped my with my English Exam and helped me write better in English. What I like most about her is that I felt comfortable. I'm still new to the United States from Japan and I feel out of place here and still I don't know many people. But with her she always made me feel welcome and she speaks Japanese but never let me speak it so I can practice! She is a really good teacher and always their if you have question!"
