May was a great teacher unfortunately, that was her only saving grace because we only met up one time due to her canceling classes three times in a row (with all kinds of reasons that are starting to sound like excuses) in the measly hour before class starts. I'm writing this review while I'm waiting for her to come on Skype for our second lesson, and it's been almost 20 minute with no teacher to be found. I cannot learn any Korean at this rate...

I just finished my first lesson with May and it was fabulous. I can't wait for my next lessons. She was going a bit quickly but slowed down when I needed and was very observant to anything I needed to work on. She listens when I have a question and explains the answer accordingly. I'll be fluent in Korean in no time thanks to May.

This was my very first time ever taking any online tutorial classes with a live person, so naturally I was very nervous, but after a few minutes with May I totally relax. She’s very friendly, patience, and caring about my goals.. She keeps me updated with things that I need for the class and very quick replying with e-mail and phone txt any time I reach out with questions. I definitely see that with her help I will be speaking, writing, and reading in no time.

May is a very involved teacher with a lot of passion for the subject, and a lot of patience with the student. She pushes the student greatly, but with proper guidance and direction. The result is a sustained pace of learning.
To give a concrete example, I started class with her almost no knowledge of the Korean language. A week later I was reading Korean, when previously I couldn't make heads or tails of Hangul. Seventeen days later I was writing a psuedo Korean poem for a friend's birthday, and have finished reading a children's book written for five year old Korean children. And its not like I have all the time in the world to study. I work over fifty hours a week, maintain a healthy social life, spend time with the family, work out four times a week and practice martial arts 3 times a week.
In short, she has high standards for students, but teaches, guides and provides direction to reach those standards. The workload is also not so overbearing either, and the amount she does assign helps immensely. That is nothing less than five stars.

I love how flexible she is. I myself have a hard time scheduling but she always understands and finds the right times for me. I love how much I learn in every single lesson. More people should give her a try!
