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!

I want to take the opportunity to say that my Korean teacher, Youngju Lee, has been an amazing teacher for me this past year. I was altogether without any ability to speak or write the Korean language at the beginning, not one syllable could I understand, but there I was, engaged to a Korean girl whose parents were quite conservative. I had to set them at ease and show them I welcomed Korean language and culture into my life. Ms. Lee started me with the basics, the written alphabet, the vowel and consonant pronunciations. She was always clear and patient and her lessons were well paced to my achievement; it was a well conceived plan, each lesson leading into the next and there is always a sense of accomplishment as each lesson was integrated into the previous. Since Ms. Lee is a highly educated native of Korea, she knew everything, all the intimate details about greetings and levels of respect in Korean culture. My meeting with my wife's parents was a success, and they were very pleased by how well I understood the Korean side of things. I remember at dinner handing the kimchi bowl to my father in law I remembered: two hands, not one! My bows were well rehearsed as well. We had a great time together and I owe it to Ms. Lee's teaching. I have enjoyed our time together and will continue to do so in the future. Thank You, Ms. Lee!

"It was a wonderful experience, learning from her. She explains things very well and makes things easy to understand. She is very thorough. She makes sure you understand one thing before moving on to the next. I found this very helpful when it came to pronunciation of the letters and syllables of Hangul. Before I began studying with Youngju, I already knew the basics of Hangul--how they were written, how they sounded, etc.--but it is very helpful to have a native speaker/tutor there to help you improve your understanding. I like her style of teaching--it's very fun and simple. She gives you props when you get things right and helps you out if you find some things difficult. Youngju is a very good instructor. I look forward to studying more with her!"
