I can say to my students that we will have fun, interesting classes that cover culture, formality, pronunciation, and more. I was inspired to become a Korean teacher by my love of Hanguel (Korean language), and I want to help people who want to learn about it.

I will be your encouraging teacher. I am looking forward to meeting you & helping you to develop your Korean skills.

About Jiny C.

Hello ~ This is Jiny! I was born and raised in South Korea and am now teaching the world about my native language and culture.

I am a CKLT-certified Korean language teacher from Incheon (like the airport), and I've been teaching university classes (at Hebei Geological University in Shijiazhuang, China, & Instituto Superior de Educación, or ISE, in Asunción, Paraguay) and private classes for over two years. I have taught all levels, from the basics of the alphabet to advanced speaking and grammar.

I studied in the USA as a foreign exchage student during college and have lectured about my experiences. I write a successful blog discussing education methods and am concluding my project to review 120 books in one year. My blog is in Korean, but you can see some pictures of me in the classroom and my teaching metarials.

I am an award winning member of Toast Masters in Shijiazhuang in China, and my student got a first prize in Korean Speech Contest in Paraguay in 2018. My writing on foreign education has been recognized by Seoul Digital Culture Arts University.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate at all to contact me.

I'll be waiting for you! Thank you.^^

Jiny is kind and patient. She prepares ahead of time for class and responds to what's app messages and emails in a timely manner. I am a beginner, and it is truly a pleasure to work with Jiny as she is so patient and encouraging.

Ms Jiny was able to tailor the lesson to meet my requirements for learning this particular language. For someone who has been out of school for the past few "decades" I'm surprised how I was able to pick up on it without spending the entire lesson asking dumb questions. She is a very good instructor that is patient, motivated, and understanding and I hope not to disappoint her.

Jiny is very nice! I had a really good first lesson with her. On the first lesson I learned some basic introductions! I bought a book that is not the one she uses but she is buying the book I have just to help me learn from it! I can tell she really wants to help me get to my goal of becoming semi-fluent in a year! I can’t wait to take more lessons!

Jiny is an amazing tutor!! There are not enough good words I can say about her. She is very thoughtful, caring, fun, and just a great tutor. I feel like I hit the jackpot with her as a tutor. She makes the class fun and exciting. You can see she really cares about her students and wants to see them grow. You can also see that she loves teaching Korean. Jiny is very flexible with her teaching style, she changed her lesson plan, so that I could learn in a better way and I’m great full for that. I was told that I would never learn a foreign language in school, because of my learning disability and now I’m learning my first foreign language. I know now more then 300 words, I’m learning the grammar rules, I’m making my own sentences, and I’m having basic conversations with Korean people. This is all because of Jiny and all the hard work she puts into each class. I’m excited to take more classes with her and to learn more. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Korean.

Jiny has been a fantastic Korean teacher. Being a new Korean language learner, I could not have asked for a better teacher to introduce me to the Korean language. I have found Jiny to be extremely patient, knowledgeable, and effective in her approach to teaching. I will soon be moving to to South Korea, and Jiny has helped target important conversational skills that I have no doubt will be beneficial when I move to South Korea. In addition to the conversational skills, Jiny has been instrumental in my improved pronunciation, vocabulary, grammatical understanding of the Korean language. I highly recommend Jiny and wish to thank her for making learning the Korean language such a positive experience.

Not only is Jiny prepared in advance and ensures that her students -properly recall their previous lessons with a quiz, she has also all of her materials shared with you through Google Drive so you can refer to them as you are studying. She is also available in between classes for questions and thoughtful tips and advice should need them. She has a friendly manner and is very good about ensuring that you have a strong grasp of the alphabet and pronunciation of Hanguel. She has been a great tutor for me as an adult learner and I would recommend her to all who are beginners.

I had the pleasure of working with Jiny when she taught Korean at Hebei Geo University in China. I was continually impressed by her dedication and creative use of methodology. Not only does she blend fun cultural interaction into her lessons, she also goes out of her way to help and encourage her students regardless of their skill level, making sure each one understands and feels included. I highly recommend her as your Korean teacher!
