Hello, future students!
My name is Jihye and I teach Piano and Korean language. I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in LA, California. I graduated from Kyung Hee University and earned a Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.
I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools. In the past, I have met many K pop and K drama lovers so I decided to share my culture and language with them.
So far I have met many passionate and enthusiastic students whom I feel very lucky to work with. I offer personalized curriculum to each of my Korean and piano students. Also, help students who prepare piano level exams such as CM, ABRSM, and SATII for the Korean language. I sometimes use clips of songs and dramas to help students who learn Korean.
Lessons are fast pace and Jihye is very knowledgeable on the subject to answer any questions.

My first lesson with Jihye was great! She really took the time to get to know me, my interests and goals, which really helped me feel relaxed and comfortable. I can’t wait to continue working with her and keep learning!

안녕하세요! Love kPOP or kDrama?! Learn the language and no more subtitles! Using TakeLessons or any kind of online-tutoring companies is new to me - but I am extremely confident to say that my teaching experiences will be able to provide great learning experience based on customized materials prepared by myself. I'm currently a Graduate Teaching Assistant pursuing MS in Economics at FAU. I am originally from Seoul, South Korea and I've been in the states for the past ten year since I started studying here as an exchange student. I am very outgoing and personable - don't worry if you are a shy person! I am always happy to listen to students' needs and wants.

My first lesson with Jeehoon was great. He's a very engaging instructor that made the lesson enjoyable with much laughter. I feel like his teaching style will help me to grasp Korean better than I have with other teachers thus far. I am very hopeful to progress towards my goals quicker and more efficiently.
November 5, 2016
As an educator I have high expectations. I have tried two other tutors in the hopes of finding a tutor that would fit me. While the other tutors were very polite and comfortable to work with, Jeehoon exceeded my expectations. Jeehoon was prompt, organized, knowledgeable, and very comfortable to work with. He also has a great personality and sense of humor which helps to relax the student fostering a learning environment. I learned the most with him in one lesson than the other two lessons from my other tutors combined. If you truly want to learn Korean Language in a thorough manner, this is the tutor to work with. I am excited and look forward to my future sessions with Jeehoon.
Here is a little about me, I'm from Korea, graduated in Japan, working in America. Also,I'm an outgoing person. I like cooking, painting and watching movies. I really would like to meet new students who interested in Asian culture and people who would like to share their life styles and hobbies. Hope to meet you soon!

Hello Korean lovers!! Do you want to learn Korean with a CERTIFIED and EXPERIENCED Korean teacher? I have been teaching for 30 YEARS including K-8 and COLLEGE as well as private tutoring in Korea, China and India. I am a student-centered, patient and dedicated teacher with teaching certificates from the Ministry of Education in Korea. My students have always been happy with my teaching because I always focus on students’ interests in what they are learning. I graduated from the graduate school of Seoul National University, the best university in Korea. Please check my profile and judge whether I can be your Korean teacher. I know everything Korean!! Let me share it with you!
Dear Prospective Students,
I know how to teach you the Korean language EFFECTIVELY and QUICKLY.
I’m a CERTIFIED teacher with 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE, from elementary school to college. I have had many international teaching experiences and live with a multilingual family. I also completed the Program for Training Korean Language Instructors for Foreigners. This means I am aware of what the most difficult problems are when students learn Korean and I can provide the most simple and effective ways to acquire the language quickly.
I am confident that I can teach you authentic Korean at ANY LEVEL.
I finished my academic history as far as the phd (I never finished my dissertation, alas). I received my Masters degree and completed all of my post graduate work at Seoul National University, which a point of particular pride with me; a
fter all, Seoul National University is the Harvard of Korea. I have a number of published works in my academic association's annual journal. And I have a Certification in Reading and Essay Instruction.
I also know KOREAN VALUES and CULTURE inside and out.
I was born in Korea and spent most time of my life there in a traditional family. I have a deep understanding of Korea and its history and life style which I could share with you. If you want to learn how to cook Korean food such as kimchi, seaweed rolls(sushi) or jabchea(noodles), of course, I can teach you! I’m a housewife, too!!
I can give you ADVICE about getting GOOD JOBS in Korea.
I taught in Korean public schools as a homeroom teacher, art teacher and English teacher. Most of my responsibilities as an English teacher were executed with native English teachers. As you know, there are many qualified English speakers in Korea who want to be full time English teachers. I worked with teachers from EPIK(English Program In Korea), TaLK(Teach and Learn in Korea) and even Fulbright scholars. Native English teachers and I worked together very well; indeed, I won an award, due, if I may say so, to my organizational pedagogical contribution. I interviewed prospective teachers, taught them how to teach and prepare classes, how to get along with students and other colleagues, housing matters, and so forth. (In addition, I can give you advice on how to apply to a Korean University and handle an interview as my husband taught for many years in Korean Universities.)
I am a certified and experienced teacher who can help you with your ambitions and needs with Korean. Let’s have fun while improving your Korean Language ability on Skype, at my home, or at your place at your convenience! I’m totally ready to work with you.
Let's get together!! See you then!!
****** I would like to post answers to questions that my prospective students usually put to me about my Korean lessons.
Q: Are you good with VISUAL LEARNERS and VERBAL LEARNERS ?
A: Yes, I'm good at that. I'm a trained teacher of Korean with more than 30 years experience.
I would like to say my teaching style varies depending on the learner's condition: age, learning style,present level in Korean, purpose of getting lesson, etc. What I usually do is use visual materials, songs and even physical gestures for children, since they have not fully developed their logical reasoning and use of abstractions. I also introduce online Korean practice programs. I also use these with adult learners who are totally beginners. Generally speaking, visual, audio and TPR approaches are more effective for beginners.
I give learners lots of chances to express what they are learning. I always link their Korean knowledge between what they learned and what they are learning. I give homework as much as they can handle, too. Regarding writing, we can share simple words or sentences on the Skype and the more you are advanced the more things we can do. One of my advanced learners is writing a diary and proofreads with me when we start every class.
Q: WHERE DO YOUR LESSONS START AT? Do they start with learning how to put the vowels and consonants together or just starting off with words you need to know?
A: Again, mine are individualized lessons. One of my students wants to just learn how to communicate verbally in Korean. It means he doesn’t care about written Korean. If the learner already knows the Korean alphabet and knows how Korean syllables are structured then I don’t need to repeat it. I don’t prolong the process or time without reason. Other than that, I start from vowels and consonants and how to combine them, and how to make sounds, and read, etc.
Q: Do you teach how to properly READ KOREAN?
A; I teach learners how to read Korean and let them read it and correct their mistakes. My pronunciation is very clear. Prior to my more than 20 years teaching history, I had worked for a Korean public TV station, KBS, as a reporter.
Q: Do you teach FORMAL and INFORMAL KOREAN because I know there is a difference between them.
A: Yes, I teach formal and informal Korean both, in addition to the Korean basic sentence structure. Of course, if you want to learn specific form only then I can do it for you. As I said, it’s all up to you.
Q: How do I PAY for the lessons?
A: All of the administrative work happens through takelessons.com except the actual class. It means you have to pay to takelessons.com. You can find how to do this on "How it Works" on the main page of takelessons.com homepage (https://takelessons.com/students/how-it-works).
Q: WHERE the lessons occur?
A: My lessons have four possible venues.
1. At your place (presently not available): To know my travel area, pleace check "Select a location" on the top right of this my profile page( https://takelessons.com/profile/youngju-s1?online) in the box.
2. At teacher's place(presently not available): If you live in Baltimore and can come to my place then you can take face-to-face lessons. That is a choice too.
3. Online: Online lessons are conducted through live 1-on-1 video chats using my personal meeting room.
4. Online TakeLessons Classroom: I also teach online group classes.
Q: When the lessons are AVAILABLE?
A: You can find my availability at "View availability" on the top right of this profile page( https://takelessons.com/profile/youngju-s1?online) in the box. Once a schedule is set, the classes occur according to it. You can reschedule whenever you need to, just for a short time or longer as long as both sides are available.
Q: Is there some way we can schedule a "TRIAL" session with you?
A: Actually, I handle all requests through takelessons.com's direct messaging system until students are officially on my roster. You and I will receive all our contact info once you book lessons and we can communicate directly then. Sorry, this means there can be no trial session short of five lessons, which is the minimum they allow. But trust that 100% SATISFACTION is GUARANTEED!! :-)
I hope that I gave you the answers what you are looking for. If you have more questions then never hesitate to ask. I welcome questions from learners!!
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!

Youngju 선생님 is a fantastic teacher so far! She works quickly to figure out what level you are at and how to meet your needs, and she is patient and fun ^.^
We can learn K-pops and K dramas(students can choose class materials if they want). For beginner and learners who will visit Korea soon we will learn Survival Korean.
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 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.
Hello! My name is Sue and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007. From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun.
How can I make the classes fun? Along with language classes, I will share lots of Korean culture and history, so the students have always interest in the Korean culture. Once you are interested in that culture, it will be inevitable not to learn the language! Always remember! Language and Culture. These are 2 things that never be separated.
Sonsangnim is really helping me to learn Korean. the lessons are interesting and fun. I definitely recommend her.

Sue is the best 선생님!! I contacted her for Korean lessons this summer and she responded immediately and was able to accommodate my time schedule. She’s a very patient and kind teacher and person. I had the hardest time with pronunciation and she was able to help me really hear how the words were supposed to be pronounced and made me feel more confident. She made every lesson fun and enjoyable — every teacher should be like her.
March 17, 2019
online lesson feels like in person class!
She planned learning plan and customized each classes and always check how much progress I made.
Highly recommend her!
I can say to my students that we will have fun, interesting classes that cover culture, formality, pronunciation, and more. I was inspired to become a Korean teacher by my love of Hanguel (Korean language), and I want to help people who want to learn about it.
I will be your encouraging teacher. I am looking forward to meeting you & helping you to develop your Korean skills.

"안녕하세요? 프린세스예요. 선생님 영주 좋아요! Hi my name is pryncess. Ms Youngju is honestly the best thing that you could ask for in a teacher. She is very intimate and und
erstanding. She's also very relaxed and caring. I promise you if you decide to choose her as your teacher she will not disappoint. As long as you're willing to practice and follow her as she teaches you will,see results. At this point Mrs youngju has become basically my Korean mom. She teaches me about culture and gives me chances to expirience more than just a language. During our one on one lessons she is personal and really tries to make sure you understand before she moves on. If you're not comfortable she will adjust in order to make it possible. You will fall in love with her teaching style! I know I did. Anyway I've written a lot and I would rewrite a lot more but there's no amount of words that can describe how amazing she is. I suppose you'll just have to find out for Yourself how amazing she is."
"Intelligent, punctual, and a great teacher. Sent supplimental materials and links to helpful videos. This will be a once a week lesson for the foreseeable
"I’ve taken a few classes with Hannah and learned a lot. Her style is patient, but in a way that challenged me to work hard and learn as much as possible,
quickly and efficiently. She always came prepared to teach, has great classroom management skills and her lessons are engaging. If you would like to learn Korean, sign up now - you won’t be disappointed!"
"She is so awesome. I learned korea quickly because she is really good at teaching :)"
One of the best things about studying the Korean language is learning about different aspects of the culture. What better way to learn some Korean vocabulary than sampling some delicious Korean delicacies?
Korean BBQ restaurants have table-top grills so guests can cook their own food at their tables. The food is delicious, and the table-top grills make for a fun group dining experience.
Here are 10 Korean BBQ dishes you have to try.
