I have over 25 years of teaching experience in Korean and ESL (English as a Second Language). Teaching is my true passion and a calling, and I love to share my mother tongue to people who are interested in learning! Korean culture has become very popular so I try to incorporate as much as I can with the language lesson. I am here to help you accomplish your new language goals. As a language teacher, I want to see your success and sense of accomplishment.

I majored in English Language Education for my B.A., and TESOL (Teaching English to Second Other Language Speakers for my M.A. I have been teaching English and Korean over 25 years both in South Korea and the U.S.A.

I have been teaching English to ESL and EFL students who are from many different countries. I am currently employed at Saint Mary's University in IEP (Intensive English Program) as an ESL instructor and have been working at this school for four years. In addition, I am also working for Northwest Vista college as an ESL instructor. Furthermore, I have been teaching Korean at UTSA (University of Texas at San Antonio) KKACSA( Korean American Culture Center in San Antonio) since I came to the U.S.A.

Before I came to the U.S., I had worked as an EFL instructor to Korean learners and had been a manager at an English institution. Even though English is my second language, it helps me teach English in different methods to ESL learners.

I am very passionate, energetic, funny, knowledgeable, and responsible. I strongly believe that being able t

Hello, my name is Jinah and I am originally from Seoul, South Korea. I am a native Korean and have lived in the U.S. for eight years. I was born and grew up in South Korea until I came to the U.S. over 7 years ago. That being said, I had all my education in South Korea and am a fluent Korean speaker with linguistic knowledge. Being native Korean speakers doesn't mean that they are able to teach languages well. However, I majored in English Education of B.A. and TESOL (Teaching English to Second Other Language Speakers) of M.A., therefore, I know how languages are learned and taught to second language speakers. I have been teaching Korean and English over 20 years in both South Korea and in U.S. and have earned lots of experience in how I can help second language speakers learn better, faster, and more efficiently in a comfortable environment. I have taught Korean at UTSA (University of Texas at San Antonio) as a Korean instructor and also I have been teaching Korean at KACCSA (Korean American Culture Center in San Antonio) since I came in the U.S. I have been also tutoring Korean on Wyzant and have gotten good feedback both from my students and their parents, so they have requested lessons continuously. I am so excited to help my students learn Korean and Korean culture that is my mother tongue. Learning different languages enhances one's life.

Amazing!

I have been getting weekly lessons from Jinah for about three months now and she is amazing. She is extremely patient, and has an uncanny ability to find small nuances in your pronunciation and spelling. The lessons are also very enjoyable and I look forward to them every week. I highly recommend Jinah if you'd like to learn Korean and have fun doing it too!

knowledgeable and personable tutor

Jinah is a very knowledgeable and personable tutor that takes time to make sure you understand every topic. She assigns homework every week based on what you learn in the lesson and checks your homework with you the following week, making sure you understand every topic fully. She’s very kind and I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn English!

Great teaching style & very friendly

Jinah is helping me improve my Korean speaking, reading, and writing skills. She balances speaking and using new grammar points so I get lots of practice before we learn something new. She’s really fun to talk to, and she is patient when I struggle to form sentences. I always look forward to our lessons. She even gives me study tips and the homework is fun and diverse. Thank you, Jinah!!

Experienced Korean Language Tutor

My 8 year-old daughter is taking Korean language lessons with Jinah and has made amazing progress in just 4 sessions. Jinah is experienced, professional, organized and very friendly. She comes prepared with a lesson plan for each session and provides a written transcript of the session afterwards, which my daughter can study throughout the week. She also gives homework and provides handouts and links to videos and songs to supplement learning. We have tried 3-4 Korean tutors through different agencies and Jinah is by far the best teacher. Highly recommend!

Jennifer, 24 lessons with Jinah

Very funny and knowledgable teacher!

Jinah has been teaching me Korea for a little over half a year now and I love every session we have! She is super funny and knowledgable and each class seems to fly by. She lets you dictate how you would like to learn a new language to try whatever works best for you. She also has her own curriculum that is good as well. Highly recommend her!

Daniel, 16 lessons with Jinah

Fun and energetic

I am Korean and have been living in Canada and the US, so I have a very basic level of the language. I found Jinah on Wyzant due to her great reviews. Now I know why! She is fun and energetic which makes me look forward to our lessons every week. She is a very dedicated teacher who really cares about my improvement. She assigns me homework every week which helps me be accountable. I believe the combination of lessons and studying is helping me be more confident in speaking Korean. I recommend Jinah to anyone who wants to learn Korean from scratch or brush up on their skills.
