Hello, my name is Ja Yon!

I was born in Korea, and spent most of my 20's living in Japan. I got my bachelor's degree from Sookmyung Women's University in Seoul, Korea (major: Chinese), and my master's degree from Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan (major: International Relations). So I'm fluent in Korean and Japanese, and am also able to speak a bit of Chinese. Additionally, I worked in Tokyo for 2 years at Toshiba, so I understand Japanese culture very well.

I taught Korean for more than 4 years in Tokyo, and have studied many foreign languages myself, so I understand what the most important and difficult things are when it comes to learning and teaching foreign languages.

I take a relaxed and open approach to teaching. I believe that students do their best work when they are comfortable and able to freely ask questions. As long as you are ready to study, I can help you understand how fun it is!

Thanks for reading!

Corporate Training:


I am a fluent Japanese speaker. I obtained a Master's degree from Waseda University in Tokyo (dissertation completed in Japanese). I lived in Tokyo for over 4 years.


I am a native Korean speaker. I was born and raised in Seoul, Korea and lived there for over 20 years. I have been teaching Korean for over half a dozen years to aspiring students both young and elderly. I believe in forging relationships with my students and try to keep things casual and friendly. Learning is easier when it's fun! I try to utilize examples in everyday life to drill home concepts and ideas. Just studying from a textbook isn't my style and I encourage students to let me know what areas they want to focus on.
