My Ideal Teacher

I left a standard class after first trying a few lessons with Yoojin. She is the real deal - a trained, skillful, talented, teacher with a wonderful personality. She teaches theory and how Korean is written, but also how it is commonly spoken. I feel like I have won the lottery.

Knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutor.

Yoojin is helping me with very skills that will help me with everyday use of Korean ie conjugating verbs to present and past tense. Currently, we are working on numbers, days of week , months, etc. I especially love how quick she is with knowing which direction to go next based on whatever we are studying in that moment. She has a talent for knowing what areas I need work in and is very applicable with the lesson. I also appreciate her constant enthusiasm for teaching.

Great tutor!

I'm an adult student (in my 20s) and going to Korea for vacation. Very engaging lessons and she's full of energy. The verbs and phrases that she taught were tailored to someone going to Korea on vacation so that was great!

Simon, 3 lessons with Yoojin

Engaging Tutor

She's been engaged with our little one and gave a lesson at his level. He was excited to learn Korean.

Fantastic Tutor!

Yoojin is a great teacher who makes sure to fully explain everything she teaches; and is very welcoming of questions at any time. She also explains many interesting cultural differences in Korea that are great to know before visiting. She is a fun, sweet, and understanding teacher who will help you grow as a Korean speaker quickly.

Great listening exercise!

Thank you so much for the great listening exercise. It really is so helpful to hear it over and over again to increase my comprehension! Thank you for being so understanding about my microphone.

Best lesson ever

I've never had a tutor for one specific language before and was very skeptical. Despite some technical difficulties in the beginning of the lesson, it was a very memorable and fun experience. It felt natural and she was very understanding when it came to my babysitting while also taking the lesson. She was very flexible in how I wanted to learn (Instead of learning the letters and such first, I wanted to learn the language and phrases first since I already knew a few) She was patient with me and made me feel very confident with learning. She'd clap her hands and smile whenever I'd get something right on the first try. She wouldn't scold me or anything if I messed up or asked her to repeat it. She was very calm and we bonded over shared interests. She was a lovely tutor and I can't wait for my next lesson :)

Great lesson!

She taught me about compound consonants and how to write them with vowels. We also looked at how to put a constant at the beginning and the end of the letters. She had me do some reading to understand the different ways to pronounce the consonants based on where they were placed.

Great lesson and excellent tutor

I am so lucky to find Yoojin as my Korean lesson tutor. She is very patient and with great experience how to start with the beginner lesson. I was enjoying my first lesson and will look forward to meeting her again next week :)
