📢 CANCELLATION, RESCHEDULING, AND NO SHOWS
If you need to reschedule or cancel a lesson, I need to be notified 24 hours in advance. If you ask to change after this 24-hour period I will have to charge you the full price of the lesson. This same rule applies if you are over 15 minutes late and you have not contacted me beforehand. I adjust my life and schedule around these lessons, so please understand why I need to be strict about this type of situation.

➫ Over the course of 7 years, I have taught English at a cram school, secondary school, and one-to-one tutor sessions in Korea. During my graduate school, I was a teaching assistant for colleges. I checked the college students’ homework and gave them feedback. I am very familiar with online learning technology and homework review.

➫ ABOUT LESSONS
My lessons are basically in Korean. So, I will try to speak Korean as much as possible. But, I still teach in English. My lesson plans are very ✪ personalized. I teach ages 15 and up.

Lynnesha L.
This was my very first session and it was great. We jumped right into work after we talked about my starting level. She was very patient and very easy to talk with. I loved the fact that she broke down the sounds to me from how the tone should sound to how my face should move for certain vowels and consonants. I can't wait until second session.

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!

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.
Angela M.
As an instructor, he is very professional and personable. He thoroughly explains the steps as he goes along, and works with the student at their level. That was nice so that I didn't feel overwhelmed. I like that he tailors lessons to the individual's goals. For a first session, I feel that I learned more than I expected to. I am looking forward to future sessions.
