About Jihyun

Hello! My name is Jihyun S. I recently graduated from Chico State and moved down to San Jose. As an international student studying in America for three and a half years, I understand how hard it could be learning a new language. I want to help! I was originally born and raised in South Korea so I am fluent in Korean and have a cultural understanding.

I have had several teaching experiences. When I was in South Korea, I taught two junior high students English for a year. What they wanted to learn was mostly focused on grammar and reading. So I planned ahead which textbooks to choose for them to learn as quickly as possible. I always pay attention to the detail. When students are struggling from a certain part of a chapter, I prefer spending enough time to help them understand the concept.

I also had an experience teaching Korean. There was a friend of mine who was adopted from Korea when he was young and he wanted to learn how to speak in Korean. I thought the best way to learn how to speak in a new language is listening a lot and practicing it out loud. So I suggested that he to watch a Korean TV program that interested him. After he watched several episodes for that week, we discussed about the episode in Korean and I taught him several phrases that were used in the episodes.

I am a patient and experienced Korean Tutor. I am also a very passionate, hard working and responsible person. If you are interested in learning Korean, please contact me. Thank you so much.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Korean

I was originally born and raised in South Korea so I am fluent in Korean and have a cultural understanding. I had lived in Korea for 20 years and came to the United State in 2012. In college, I had taught 3 students who were interested in learning how to speak/write in Korean. After a year with my detailed Korean lessons, their understanding of Korean language as well as Korean culture got improved a lot.

I think the most effective way to learn a new language is getting exposed to the language as many times as possible and practicing it out loud. So I suggested my students to watch some of the Korean TV programs that interest them. After they watched several episodes for that week, we discussed about the episodes in Korean and I taught them several phrases that were used in the episodes. And it was very helpful for them to learn conversational expressions.
