About Jihye L.

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. Currently, I am working 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 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!!

I've had two Korean lessons with Jihye, and she has made it a great experience. Her approach makes learning a new language less intimidating, and she also discusses the culture and history. I was originally adopted from Korea (to the USA), and always wanted to learn the language. Jihye is understanding, makes the lessons engaging and fun, and I have not felt overwhelmed, which is a good thing! Every week I look forward to our lessons, and can't wait to continue learning with her.
