Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I am a recent graduate from Northern Arizona University, but spent all of my childhood living in Seoul, South Korea. Because of this I have become tri-lingual (English, Korean, Japanese). While at university, I was the vice-president and a teacher of the Korean Club which specialized at teaching university students how to speak, write, and read the Korean language since the university did not offer classes. Being from, and spending my life in Korea, I am very familiar with the culture which would greatly help me teach you relevant phrases / vocabulary that would be useful in conversation.

Teaching since:

I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. I spent my first 20 years in Korea. I earned a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management at Northern Arizona University. While completing my studies at NAU, I was the vice-president of the Korean club teaching college students the Korean language (reading, writing, speaking), and culture.

I have experience teaching Korean to students ranging in skill from beginner to advanced. Students can expect to learn not only the language but also Korean culture and how the language is actually used outside of textbooks.

I also worked at the international office at NAU and Ajou University in Korea. So because of this, I am very experienced in teaching and speaking to students who are either learning English or Korean, and have a strong ability to increase their learning speed.

I am so happy to have finally found the perfect language instructor through TakeLessons! Jeehyae is incredibly patient and willing to help me understand Korean at my pace. I can always count on Jeehyae whenever I feel stumped and would like to review anything to improve my foreign language abilities. I can't wait for my next lesson :) Thank you Jeehyae!

Jeehye was amazing! She was extremely patient and helpful. I didn't know much Korean before jeehye taught me but she really took the time to work with me and make sure I knew what was being taught before moving on. I love learning Korean from her!
