My lessons will be based on learning Korean through Kpop, K-dramas and K-variety shows. We will explore and select each category together and learn the language, history, culture, and more! I believe in visual learning so we will do some image training to help you better understand the language!

Language is a fun trick. Grammar has a foundational importance to every language, however, learning the nuances of the language becomes primary, the more you learn it. You can speak a language grammatically correctly from start to end, however, what makes you sound like a native is understanding and utilizing the feelings and nuances of the particular language. I am a 1.5 generation Korean, with fluency in both Korean and English. I can help you impress the Korean folks around you before you know it!

I also have three years of broad experience living, working, and doing volunteer work in South Korea. I excel at simplifying Korean grammar and helping students quickly accelerate from beginner to intermediate, and intermediate to advanced. I am a strong partner for accountability in your own individual study and am also an excellent conversation partner.

"Perfect temperament for working with my 7 year old. Sung Je K adapts to my sons whims and, when needed, drew him back into the lesson using them. Ex. My son, on a suger high from a holliday party at school, started blurting out random words. Sung Je K. Took those words, and used them in the lesson. It was fantastic. Sung Je K is attentive and wants his students to learn. A+ teacher!"
