Hello, my name is Ji aka Suebeet. I am a private Korean language Hangul certified tutor. I was born and raised in Seoul, Korea. I have a B.A in Global Studies from Northwestern University. I scored in the 99th percentile on KBS Korean Language Proficiency Test & Test of Korean Language (TOKL).

Since 2005, I have helped students improve their confidence in Korean language. Whether you are struggling or simply looking for enrichment Korean tutoring, I will create a customized approach tailored specifically for your needs.

I have experience working with all grade levels and have a passion to help students excel. (Grades K-12, College Students, and Adults) I teach Korean language from Beginner to Proficient level, and Business conversation. I have the experience and aptitude for creating a positive learning environment where students are challenged while enjoying the class.

I strongly believe that repetition is key to learning a new language, and I try to impress this fact on students while retaining a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I also encourage my students to travel overseas to experience immersion in the language and culture.

Thank you for considering me. I look forward to speaking with you and working with you to help fulfill your potential.

Suebeet is a great Korean language teacher. I especially love how we can do Skype lessons. She has a specific curriculum designed – textbooks and all – for learning Korean, as opposed to casual conversational stuff. My Korean language is pretty basic, growing up listening to basic Korean stuff from my parents. Suebeet is well organized, up-to-date, very friendly, highly competent. I highly recommend her!!!

I am so happy that I have found such a great tutor. Suebeet is very friendly and funny which makes the lessons enjoyable. She is flexible for timing since I have a full-time job as well as a startup, and makes arrangements to suit your needs. I am happy that I found her and would recommend to all interested in learning Korean :)

Suebeet is the best language teacher I’ve ever learned from, hands down. I always leave our sessions feeling like I’ve advanced my understanding and knowledge, and she’s not afraid to challenge you with after-class homework either. On top of all that, she’s a friendly and easy-going person, which is very important when you’re meeting multiple days a week for months and months. I strongly recommend her to anybody interested in learning Korean!

I’m so glad that I found Suebeet as my Korean teacher. I have been continuously learning Korean but it’s really hard to master a language just by myself. I really enjoy our Skype sessions since I have a really busy work schedule and won’t be able to take in class courses. I have been with Suebeet for a month now, and I do feel like that I’ve advanced my Korean a lot! I would definitely recommend her to anyone that’s interested in learning Korean.

Learning Korean from scratch with Suebeet has been a wonderful experience. She is a very patient and understanding tutor, who makes learning very easy, and fun at the same time. I am very confident that I will continue to learn and grow in my use of the language as we continue to work together. I would absolutely recommend Suebeet as a tutor for anyone wanting to learn Korean.

I have been taking classes with Suebeet since last year to help improve my Korean language skills. I have noticed all areas of improvement since taking her lessons: reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar, listening, and speaking. She uses various resources (online video and textbooks) to make lessons interesting and challenging. She focuses on areas that you might need more work on and will also adjust the lessons to spend more time on things that you want to go over. Lessons with her are easygoing and professional. I recommend her to anyone interested in learning and improving their Korean language skills.

My 8-year old daughter began private Korean language lessons with Suebeet almost 3 months ago (two 90-minute lessons per month) and she really loves her lessons. Suebeet is very personable and keeps my daughter highly engaged throughout the 90-minute lessons. More importantly, my daughter is learning quickly and efficiently – she has already learned the Korean alphabet and a number of vocabulary words and is eager to learn more with each lesson. I highly recommend Suebeet if you have school-age children who are seeking to learn to read, speak and write Korean!

Extremely patient and efficient tutor. Does an excellent job of working with a pace that you are comfortable with, yet is still very thorough and comprehensive with her lesson plan. Highly recommended.

I have engaged Suebeet to learn Korean for business and personal reasons. She is friendly and courteous. She is very adaptable to my learning habits and feeds me new material at a rate that challenges but does not overwhelm me. I am progressing at a pace that I'm very happy with. I would definitely recommend her for anyone who wants to learn Korean.

Ji "Suebeet" is an excellent teacher. Her class is relaxed but also no nonsense. I was learning right away. She diligently tracked my progress and presented a dynamic and jam-packed lesson. She also kept me engaged and got me speaking right away! She gave me great preparatory materials before class, and laid out a clear vision for my learning and for future classes. She is also not shy about giving homework, which is crucial to continued learning!
