I am really enjoying having Woo as an instructor. He spends a lot of time working with pronunciation in the beginning, and targeting where I was weakest. I have been extremely impressed with his instruction technique, and already feel like I am learning a lot. Definitely recommend him as an instructor.

My daughter's first lesson with Mr. Park was wonderful. He was thorough, engaging and gave her lots of encouragement throughout the lesson. The material he sent afterward to help with her homework between lessons will be very helpful. She can't wait for her next session with Mr. Park.
Corinne
I've been taking lessons from Mr. Park for a few months now, and I've been really enjoying them! I've taken group classes before, but this is my first 1:1 lesson experience, and Mr. Park does a great job catering and personalizing his approach to what you're interested in, even if it's not quite language related! For example, I told him I was looking to study Korean art history, and he sent me additional resources specific to that, and sometimes even devotes time to discuss different facets of it if it comes up in the lesson. He also provides a deep dive into the Sino/Native-Korean roots of different words which I personally find helpful and interesting. He is patient, encouraging, and personable, and does a fantastic job explaining things even if you don't quite get it the first time. Highly recommend!

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.

Suyeon is wonderful and patient, and having her as a tutor is so crucial to learn the nuances about how people actually speak Korean in real life. Had I tried to rely solely on books, I would be learning archaic terms and would not ever have a chance to blend in.

May I ask you first, what are your reasons for learning Korean? Are you interested in learning Korean but don’t know where to begin? Are you learning Korean for your career, or to work in Korea? Do you want to understand Korean songs or TV shows better? Everyone may have a different reason, and I'm curious to hear yours! Please let me know so I may help you to reach your goals faster.
Korean is a beautiful language, but it is very different from English in structure grammar. Also, there are lots of pronunciations that will require some familiarization. I will help you get past some of these obstacles and to stay motivated to keep learning until you reach your goals!

Seriously love Panjin. Her lessons are well thought out and she’s always so much fun. We’ve been learning to read Korean and say some common phrases. It’s been great and looking forward to future lessons. She’s always shares videos and pdfs as learning aides. She’s also good about recording our lessons so we can look back!

"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 managing 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."
