Hello, My name is Young. I am a native Korean teacher who was born and grew up in Seoul, South Korea. I earned bachelor’s degree from Ewha Woman’s University in fine art and my master’s degree at Korean International University in Performing Art and Education. My experience includes hosting seven solo exhibitions and many group exhibitions in different cities of the world. I have earned awards Honorable Mention from Watercolor Society of Hawaii and several other awards including Grand Prize from International Woman’s Art Festival in Seoul. I have also been appointed to judge for juried art exhibitions (2012 NEO-POX) in Seoul.

I have been teaching Art and English as a second language for more than 13 years . Through all those experiences, I have developed teaching strategies and skills that I now utilize to teach the Korean language to foreign speakers. I am truly passionate in teaching students who wish to learn Korean language. One of my teaching principles is that in order to learn a foreign language effectively, one also needs to understand that the culture is intertwined with the language. As someone who has lived in Korea and studied Korean Culture professionally, I am able to teach the Korean culture as well as K-pop and K-drama to assist their learning language.
I am a patient, encouraging, and creative teacher who knows how to teach in easy and effective ways.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Great experience!

As a 2nd generation Korean American, I have struggled with my Korean language deficiency for decades. I have tried to improve by watching Korean language television, through self-study, and (in university) by spending time with Korean friends. After I decided that I needed assistance to attain an acceptable level of fluency, I looked into tutoring options. I was hesitant to try online tutoring, but my initial experience with this teacher was excellent! I strongly encourage anyone looking to learn or improve Korean language skills to reach out and book a lesson.

Wonderful and gifted tutor

I loved her sense of patience and purpose - she is a kind and insightful tutor and she provided lovely structure and tips on how to learn while creating an environment that was perfect for learning. Can’t wait for my next lesson - she is awesome!

Simmi, 29 lessons with Youngkeun

Great instructor and first lesson

Youngkeun reached out to me ahead of the first lesson to check on goals and language proficiency, as I had previously studied Korean. She made sure I had the basics down and then customized the lesson, always making sure things made sense. I never felt rushed. For my first lesson, I could not have asked for a better instructor!

Knowledgeable and goes at learner's pace

선생님 Youngkeun is very patient and extremely knowledgeable about how to teach the Korean language properly. For someone who loves to learn languages, I find it very important to find someone who knows how to explain things in a clear and concise manner. In our first lesson, she was very punctual and had a whiteboard ready, which was very helpful. Additionally, she goes right ahead to explain what Hangeul (the Korean alphabet) is, its origin, and the vowels. She makes sure to go at the learner's pace and answers any questions you might have. I just did my second lesson and I have gotten the vowels and many of the constants down already! I would highly recommend taking lessons with her.

Excellent teacher! highly recommend!

Youngkeun is an excellent teacher. She made our first lesson really fun, informative and exciting. Love how she incorporates history and background info into the lesson, it gives a great base to build off of. Can’t wait for our next meeting to continue my Korean!

Taught me exactly what I wanted to learn

Youngkeun is very patient and explains things in a manner that is easy to comprehend. She is a very effective Korean instructor and is very detailed. I would highly recommend her but those starting to learning Korean.

Five stars

Ayessa is very happy with this experience. She says she understands well, and it is very interesting and engaging for her. But I don't think we need to keep rating her sessions. Just do your marketing without the help of your clients and students please.

An Amazing Teacher!!!

안녕하세요, 선생님 Youngkeun S. is the best!!! She is very patient and very knowledgeable. I didn’t know why Hangeul was created but she explained it and made me love King 세종(Sejong). She slows down or speeds up depending on your comprehension of what’s being taught. I would greatly recommend you choosing Ms. Youngkeun if you are in need of a Korean teacher no matter if you’re just beginning or advanced.

Great Choice

I had my first meeting and it was very helpful. Before we started on the lesson she had me do a basic reading test to see what I knew which got me to bypass some of the lessons. When we got to things I didn't know she was very patient, used lots of examples, and made sure I understood everything before we moved on. My boyfriend is Korean so he was listening in to see how things were taught and he was also happy with my selection in teachers. Very excited to start this journey and can't wait to improve even more.
