I don't just teach from the book but tailor lessons to the interests of my students. I also introduce students to Korean culture by visiting Korean restaurants and tea places.
I am an experienced Korean teacher from Korea who has taught all levels of Korean to English speakers. I tailor my lessons to the interests of students and make my classes interactive. I develop customized lessons to reinforce the material from the book and reinforce grammar topics. On occasion we even go on field trips to local Korean restaurants!!!
I recently began taking lessons with Hannah and it has been a wonderful experience. I went in intimidated at the thought of learning such a difficult language from scratch, but Hannah has been a very helpful and encouraging instructor and makes the language so much more manageable. I've been rather amazed by how much Korean I have been able to pick up in such a short time and have no doubt that I can become fluent eventually under her instruction. Anyone interested in learning Korean should absolutely take lessons with Hannah!

My Korean is improving everyday and I couldn't have gotten this far without you. 선생님 감사합니다!!! :)
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!

Very patient and helpful - she works with me at my level while encouraging me to get better.
June 6, 2019
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 ^.^
I taught myself Korean. So, I understand the struggles that everyone goes through when learning Korean and I have figured out all the tricks and ways of learning the language. I have perfected the Korean accent, have received a certificate from the Korean government confirming my Korean language abilities, and I have taught a Korean class in association with IYF (International Youth Foundation) at Temple University.
*** I am currently living in London so my time zone is British Summer Time (EST +5)! Please remember that when scheduling lessons, Thank you!*** I understand how hard it is to be able to learn a second language. Having taught myself Korean, I have found how to have fun learning a new language, how to effectively learn the language, and how to squeeze it into a busy schedule. That's why I am flexible with my teaching schedule. If the one posted on my page doesn't work for you, email me and we can work something out!
I have been to South Korea four times and have intensively studied both the South and North Korean cultures, so feel free to ask me any questions. I want this class to be focused on your needs and what you want to learn - whether it be vocab, grammar, culture, or everything!
I can read, write, speak, make jokes, and even
make play-on-word jokes in Korean. I have received a certification from the Korean government confirming my proficiency in the Korean language, and I have taught a Korean course in association with IYF (International Youth Foundation) at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have also studied at Yonsei University (연세대학교), one of South Korea's top schools and the country's oldest school, for the spring of 2018 and will be continuing my education at SOAS in London this upcoming fall for my Masters.
The lessons are for my 16 year old daughter, so I haven't experienced them myself. But I can tell from all of the information she passes on, that Natalie is an excellent teacher. She customizes the lessons to my daughter's interests and skill level. I am so glad that I was able to get connected to her through take lessons.com.
February 15, 2018
Taking lessons with Natalie has been great! She breaks everything down easily, so that you can understand, and is very patient when it comes to your level of learning. I look forward to continuing my lessons with Natalie in the future! :)
February 13, 2018
Natalie is an incredible Korean teacher. Her lessons are always relevant, engaging, and useful. And having learned Korean herself, she knows the challenges that English speakers face and is great at helping others overcome those challenges. I owe it to Natalie for helping me get my Korean to where it is today!
I came to USA at age of 15 and learned English in Mid-West most of my life. I love using idioms in both language. In Korean up-to-dated direct translation of "you're welcome" is "what?" why? because they meant "oh no what are you talking about? don't mention it" Let's learn the language while having fun. Take a lesson from me.
Johan here and I love music! Nice to meet you fellow music lover.
I have been involved in music since I was just a child. It started with learning piano, then guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, djembe and so many more.
I’ve continued to learn and perfect my craft by being apart of different types of bands from small to large with varying genres of music. I also formalized my music education with a bachelor of Art in Music. Did I mention I’m also quite a harmonizer? Sign up today and maybe I’ll throw in some tips with your instrument lesson.
Johan was great. Very helpful in prepping for the session and we look forward to working with him in the future!
March 15, 2019
This was only my first less with Johan -- it was such fun, I felt so encouraged and can't wait for my next. He's just terrific! Very kind and clear and again - the key word - encouraging! A great teacher!
April 25, 2018
Johan is great with kids! My son is a very active child, and he was able to make the lesson fun and engaging. More than that, I enjoyed seeing Johan be creative, listen to the child, and make music fun, more than being it a lesson (per say). I highly recommend Johan!

I had my first lesson today, he is an amazing teacher. He has already given me so many resources to help me learn faster. I also have a much better understanding of proper pronunciation with just one lesson. I am looking forward to the rest of my lessons.
July 17, 2019
It’s my third lesson and he is still very kind as he has to put up with me and my forgetfulness.
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.

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.
Hello. I am an in-service tutor at the college. I am currently helping students with Korean, ESL, and Japanese. I meet many students with various needs daily basis. If you let me know your concerns or struggles, I will try my best for you to achieve your goal! Let's make it happen together!
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!
"Great instructor! He was very patient and approachable in the first lesson. He also uses dad jokes to help you remember vocabulary. I would definitely rec
ommend him to anyone interested in learning Korean."
"Organized and good vibes!"
"Our first lesson went great. Arron quickly felt out my language level and helped me set effective goals. I was impressed at how well he explained Korean
grammar--his explanation of particles was the best I've ever received from any tutor or teacher. I also appreciated how he had two nice PDF textbooks to use as the core of our class. Strongly recommended!"
"i am really enjoy learning korean with Jihye선생님. she makes the class well-organized and funny. I could learn both skills and culture from her."
"Suyeon is very professional and covers a lot of ground!"
"Jihye is an excellent instructor. She's very encouraging and helpful."
"Youngju is such a wonderful teacher! She has helped me grow as I learn Korean and the way she teaches makes it very simple to learn and to remember vocabu
lary. I started teaching myself Korean a few months ago but really wanted the chance to interact with someone because I learn better that way and she has made me feel very comfortable and I look forward to class every week. If you're considering a Korean teacher, I highly recommend her. Not only does she teach you the language, but she also teaches me things about the culture that I did not know already. This is my first time having a Korean teacher and I am very happy that I chose Youngju."
"I just completed my first group lessons with Youngju and it was lovely! She was super friendly and made the class fun. She also look time after the alloca
ted 45 minutes to answer questions. Highly recommend trying a class!"
The best way to learn Korean is through lessons with a Korean teacher, but supplemental study materials - such as Korean learning apps - can be very beneficial for language students as well.
Learning to speak Korean can be challenging, especially for English speakers. The language has a different alphabet, Hangul, and it contains sounds that aren't found in English.
Fortunately, between YouTube lessons and language learning apps, there are lots of helpful resources available. Check …
