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’m very stupid, and Jeehyae still finds a way to teach me. I’m also an incredibly painful annoyance, but she doesn’t stress vomit during my lessons (like my past tutors have).

I have been taking lessons with Jeehyae for the past couple of weeks and have had a great experience! She is always very patient and adapts the lessons to my needs. She is very approachable so I'm comfortable asking her questions. She has helped me learn so much and grow in confidence with speaking Korean. I look forward to continuing to take lessons with her!

JeeHyae is an amazing teacher! She’s extremely patient, super personable, and not to mention knowledgeable! She gets you speaking quickly, which means her lessons are interactive and welcoming, even to beginners like me! Jeehyae is also incredibly accommodating and encourages you to notify her if you are ever unsure about a specific topic. Once she notices that you’ve learned the section, then she allows you to move on, at your own pace, and ties all of what you’ve learned together in the next class.

I’d highly suggest taking lessons with Jeehyae! She has a natural ability to teach and I look forward to taking more lessons with her!

she doesn't rush me in stuff. Also, she is very nice and patient and helps me when i don't get something and she reviewes the work with me to see if i get it.

Jeehyae is very knowledgable about the Korean language and culture. She not only is a great teacher, but is also kind and is always willing to work at your own, individualized pace. She's always willing to answer questions and go over things until you understand. She will challenge you to be the best you can be, and also provides good resources like textbooks to continue learning on your own time. Definitely recommend!

Jeehyae is very, very nice. She's very patient if you get trouble with trying to get comfortable with pronunciation. She's a very encouraging teacher and I highly recommend her tutoring/teaching Korean.

A bonus is that sometimes her dog makes a guest appearance with online sessions.

I took lessons with Jeehyae for a year to help meet a foreign language requirement for school. I initially had no experience with the Korean Language or the Korean alphabet and Jeehyae was very patient and encouraging throughout all of my tutoring. She was flexible with the schedule, punctual for the lessons, and always available for questions. I highly recommend Jeehyae for any level of Korean language student.

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!
