Teaching since:

I wish to share my experiences and knowledge with my students through teaching and learning Korean. I have a mastery of the Korean language that is broad and in depth, for I am a Korean native born and educated. I have a nuanced understanding of its culture, its history and its people and I am confident that there are few better fit to teach those who are interested in these.

I was born in 1965 in Korea and spent my life in the rigorous Korean public school system. I received my bachelor degree from Kyung Hee University and went on to Kyung Hee University Graduate School of Law where I received my law degree(1990, Master of Law). I was employed by LG Display in its Human Resources and Knowledge Management Department for 11 years and moved to the USA in 2008. I received my GED diploma in 2009 and after taking on several employment interests here in the US, including completing a nursing program in 2010, I have come to own and manage a small business and am finally settled in with my family.

* Experience:

1. Human Resources Management: Recruiting, Interviewing, Selecting, Positioning, Compensation, Labor Relation Management, Wage Adjustment and Negotiation, Employ Satisfaction Survey and Analysis

2. Human Resources Development: Organization Development Project(Organization Culture Activity), Knowledge Management

3. Information Technology Related : Human Resources Management System Development and Operating in Corporation Resources Management System, Knowledge Management System Development, Operation and Maintenance

4. Adult Education: Knowledge Management Training Program Development, KM Lecturing, KM Facilitator Workshop Program Design / Operation / Evaluation

5. Small Business Management : Set-up, Operation, Recruiting, Account Management

6. Medical Knowledge : I received my certification as a Nurse Aide in 2010 and finished one year course in the Nursing Program

I have an extensive background in my experiences and education. This gives me the breadth of knowledge to educate students of Korean language, my mother tongue, on a wide range of fields and issues. As a native Korean I can provide intimate and insightful understanding of every aspect of Korean life and language. All you need to do is tell what your interests and goals are, and I can devise a program of study just for you.

Cheol Hong is a very good Korean teacher. He's very patient and seems to love teaching. You can't go wrong choosing Cheol Hong as your Korean language instructor, I'm glad I did.

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.

It’s my third lesson and he is still very kind as he has to put up with me and my forgetfulness.

In a bit more than half year I’ve learned a lot from him. I wasn’t sure back then how to even choose teacher, and I’m really happy I choose him. In a short time he can clearly teach a lot, and the classes are really fun. He has a great knowledge which I love listen to. Also cares with the student in a personal level, that helps me all the time to keep going, and regularly checks on me to keep up my motivation. He always goes the extra mile, to make sure I have every knowledge I need at the time. For me he has everything a great teacher needs to have!
저는 한국어 공부를 지난 겨울에 시작했습니다. 한국어 공부를 시작했을 때 저는 뭘 하고 있는지 몰랐습니다. 선생님 덕분에 저는 한국어를 더 빨리 이해하기 시작했습니다. 그리고 저는 한국과 사랑에 빠졌습니다. 한국 언어하고, 문화 그리고 역사와 한국인의 사고방식을 알고 싶습니다. 선생님께서는 항상 저에게 계속해서 힘을 주셔서 얼마나 감사한지 모릅니다. 정말 감사합니다 박철홍 선생님!

At the beginning of the class I had a few technical difficulties with my laptop. However, my instructor demonstrated a GREAT deal of patience while I was troubleshooting. He hung in there with me and made sure we completed our entire first session. EXCELLENT first class experience.

I took a 15-lesson course with Cheol Hong and had a great experience. He really catered the lessons to fit my Korean language ability and he was very patient and kind when helping me pronounce and read words. I could tell he really cared that I was actually learning and improving during our lessons. He made sure that I was able to understand simple conversation sentences to practice basic Korean. I informed Cheol that I was learning Korean because I am going to teach English in South Korea in a few months and he made sure that he taught me the basics to be able to survive there when shopping, using transportation, asking for directions, ordering food, giving directions in class, etc. I really enjoyed my time with Cheol and recommend that anyone who is interested in learning the Korean language from a native speaker to contact Cheol to set up classes. He is really sweet and caring. You won’t regret it.

I really enjoyed my first lesson, he made it simple and easy to understand and made sure I knew what was wrong and right. The way he explained made it easier and a lot more clear for me. I look forward to to future lessons.

Cheol sets a fast pace but does a good job of making sure the student understands. He builds on the information he teaches in a logical manner. I look forward to more lessons with him and anticipate that I will learn a lot!

Teacher Cheol Hong is very patient, kind, and easy to learn from. He also gives interesting history and definition on the back ground of some of the vocabulary to make lessons more fun. I would highly recommend him.

This teacher is very kind and patient. He made sure that I was understanding the topic before moving on and made my lesson an interactive experience rather than just teaching at me. He gave me many opportunities to practice what I was learning throughout the lesson. I am confident that he will be able to help me get to the level of proficiency I need.

Cheol Hong has a genuine talent for teaching language. I am an experienced teacher of many years and I can see this clearly. I have known him personally as well as professionally and am always impressed by his sincerity and the clarity of his thinking. He is also, patient and willing to work hard for students, and these are characteristics of the most effective teachers. I have no doubt that whoever his students might be, he will provide satisfactory instruction for accomplishing their goals.

Mr. Park Cheol Hong has been a good friend for more than a year now. I know him to have an admirable knowledge of Korea, its language, history and culture. Thus, not only does he deftly handle the essentials of the spoken and written word, he knows how these go in the complex social structure of native speakers where knowledge is assumed. This is an immense benefit for those wishing to understand the language as well as the nuances of interaction, for Korea is rigorously constructed culture.
I heartily recommend Mr. Park for those who want to learn Korean. He adjusts the learning pace according to the student and is very accommodating to the individual. A great teacher!
