Overview

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.
I am very passionate about teaching and helping others - as one once said "To Teach in To Change One's Live Forever", every lesson for every student means a lot to me. Thus I hold great responsibility and honor to do my job.

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.

Jee has a great personality and is a great teacher. In addition to teaching the language he helps the student understand about Korean culture which helps the student understand when formal or informal language is used. I am just a beginner.
