Hello, future students! My name is Jihye and I teach Piano and the Korean language. I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in Los Angeles, California. I graduated from Kyung Hee University and earned a Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts. I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools. Recently, I worked as a guest speaker at the new social media platform Clubhouse that launched as a new program at TakeLessons. In the past, I have met many K-pop and K drama lovers so I decided to share my culture and language with them. So far I have met many passionate and enthusiastic students whom I feel very lucky to work with. I offer a personalized curriculum to each of my Korean and piano students. Also, help students who prepare piano level exams such as CM, ABRSM, and SATII, TOPIK for the Korean language. I sometimes use clips of songs and dramas to help students who learn Korean. Are you ready to learn?? Let's begin taking lessons!!

Jihye is a wonderful teacher!! She is super accommodating and flexible, responds to needs / requests quickly, and is so thorough, patient, and helpful as a teacher. I speak Korean fluently but my foundational grammar/spelling and reading/writing were never great. At the same time, my boyfriend is learning Korean for the first time with no experience. I was looking for someone who could accommodate both our experience levels while teaching not just about the language, but also about Korean culture - and Jihye more than delivers! We have so much fun learning Korean every week and I'm so grateful to have found her!
Jihye is super nice and very patient! Ive learned so much! :)
2 lessons in and it's been awesome. She works with you on the level you are at. Explains everything really well and makes learning fun. Highly recommend.
