Hello, future students!
My name is Jihye and I teach Piano and Korean language. I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in LA, 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. 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 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.
Lessons are fast pace and Jihye is very knowledgeable on the subject to answer any questions.

My first lesson with Jihye was great! She really took the time to get to know me, my interests and goals, which really helped me feel relaxed and comfortable. I can’t wait to continue working with her and keep learning!
I don't just teach from the book but tailor lessons to the interests of my students. I also introduce students to Korean culture by visiting Korean restaurants and tea places.
I am an experienced Korean teacher from Korea who has taught all levels of Korean to English speakers. I tailor my lessons to the interests of students and make my classes interactive. I develop customized lessons to reinforce the material from the book and reinforce grammar topics. On occasion we even go on field trips to local Korean restaurants!!!
I recently began taking lessons with Hannah and it has been a wonderful experience. I went in intimidated at the thought of learning such a difficult language from scratch, but Hannah has been a very helpful and encouraging instructor and makes the language so much more manageable. I've been rather amazed by how much Korean I have been able to pick up in such a short time and have no doubt that I can become fluent eventually under her instruction. Anyone interested in learning Korean should absolutely take lessons with Hannah!

My son and I had our first lesson with Hannah. It went very well. Hannah is engaging and patient. She really understands that studying Korean is no easy feat and takes the time to explain things to e Janice our comprehension.

I’ve taken a few classes with Hannah and learned a lot. Her style is patient, but in a way that challenged me to work hard and learn as much as possible, quickly and efficiently. She always came prepared to teach, has great classroom management skills and her lessons are engaging. If you would like to learn Korean, sign up now - you won’t be disappointed!
My teaching area includes these followings: Basic Korean Speaking, Reading, and Writing Conversational Business Korean SAT II Korean Language Korean Language in Contemporary Korean Culture (and more)
안녕하세요! Love kPOP or kDrama?! Learn the language and no more subtitles! Using TakeLessons or any kind of online-tutoring companies is new to me - but I am extremely confident to say that my teaching experiences will be able to provide great learning experience based on customized materials prepared by myself. I'm currently a Graduate Teaching Assistant pursuing MS in Economics at FAU. I am originally from Seoul, South Korea and I've been in the states for the past ten year since I started studying here as an exchange student. I am very outgoing and personable - don't worry if you are a shy person! I am always happy to listen to students' needs and wants. I am very passionate about teaching and helping others - as one once said "To Teach in To Change One's Live Forever", every lesson for every student means a lot to me. Thus I hold gre
I really like how he wanted to get to know the type of person I am and what I already know. We learned about each other aswell.

My first lesson with Jeehoon was great. He's a very engaging instructor that made the lesson enjoyable with much laughter. I feel like his teaching style will help me to grasp Korean better than I have with other teachers thus far. I am very hopeful to progress towards my goals quicker and more efficiently.
November 5, 2016
As an educator I have high expectations. I have tried two other tutors in the hopes of finding a tutor that would fit me. While the other tutors were very polite and comfortable to work with, Jeehoon exceeded my expectations. Jeehoon was prompt, organized, knowledgeable, and very comfortable to work with. He also has a great personality and sense of humor which helps to relax the student fostering a learning environment. I learned the most with him in one lesson than the other two lessons from my other tutors combined. If you truly want to learn Korean Language in a thorough manner, this is the tutor to work with. I am excited and look forward to my future sessions with Jeehoon.
My video introduction is available! Please check. ***************************************** Let's learn Korean together and have a great time! I look forward to working with you. :) ****************************************** I grew up in Seoul, South Korea but I currently live in the U.S. Since 2015, I have started teaching Korean to English speakers including groups and one-on-one sessions through online or in person. I have many ways I like to teach but ultimately my lesson plans are totally dependent on what YOU want. So, please let me know your goal.
※ About Lessons: My lessons are basically in Korean. So, I will try to speak Korean as much as possible. But, I still teach in English.
※ Materials: Free eBooks, PDF Homework, Listening files
※ Levels: If you are an Intermediate & Advanced learner and want to have talks with me, then let me know the following: - Which do you want more, discussion or revision? How much do you want me to speak? 50:50, 80:20, etc. - Do you want me to focus on correcting your pronunciation/basic grammar? Or to rewrite what you said?
※ Homework: Usually, my lessons have Homework. Are you okay with this? How much homework do you want? How many hours do you have for homework?
*Cancellation, Rescheduling, and No Shows* If you need to reschedule or cancel a lesson, I need to be notified 24 hours in advance. If you ask to change after this
24-hour period I will have to charge you the full price of the lesson. This same rule applies if you are over 15 minutes late and you have not contacted me beforehand. I adjust my life and schedule around these lessons, so please understand why I need to be strict about this type of situation.
Mrs. Eileen has helped my daughter improve a lot in Korean! She's very kind, patient, and is always there to help you if you are ever confused. I would definitely recommend picking her as your next teacher!
I came to USA at age of 15 and learned English in Mid-West most of my life. I love using idioms in both language. In Korean up-to-dated direct translation of "you're welcome" is "what?" why? because they meant "oh no what are you talking about? don't mention it" Let's learn the language while having fun. Take a lesson from me.
Johan here and I love music! Nice to meet you fellow music lover.
I have been involved in music since I was just a child. It started with learning piano, then guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, djembe and so many more.
I’ve continued to learn and perfect my craft by being apart of different types of bands from small to large with varying genres of music. I also formalized my music education with a bachelor of Art in Music. Did I mention I’m also quite a harmonizer? Sign up today and maybe I’ll throw in some tips with your instrument lesson.
Johan was great. Very helpful in prepping for the session and we look forward to working with him in the future!

This was only my first less with Johan -- it was such fun, I felt so encouraged and can't wait for my next. He's just terrific! Very kind and clear and again - the key word - encouraging! A great teacher!
April 25, 2018
Johan is great with kids! My son is a very active child, and he was able to make the lesson fun and engaging. More than that, I enjoyed seeing Johan be creative, listen to the child, and make music fun, more than being it a lesson (per say). I highly recommend Johan!

I had my first lesson today, he is an amazing teacher. He has already given me so many resources to help me learn faster. I also have a much better understanding of proper pronunciation with just one lesson. I am looking forward to the rest of my lessons.
July 17, 2019
It’s my third lesson and he is still very kind as he has to put up with me and my forgetfulness.
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.

My Korean has improved to the point where my in laws comment on how my accent and speaking has improved, and my husband's family in Seoul were so impressed by how much I could speak to them in Korean! All of this was thanks to my classes with Hannah. I can't recommend taking classes with her enough."

As most students know, studying the Korean language can be complicated. Luckily, with the growing popularity of Korean drama (K-drama), it's much easier, and more fun, to learn popular catch phrases and buzzwords.
Korean drama shows use hundreds of slang words and catchphrases, which can be frustrating for beginning Korean-language students. If this is you, don't panic. This list will help you understand the characters and story lines in Korean drama.
