I lived in Korea for over 20 years and came to the States. I am a native Korean speaker and aware of active korean cultures. I am a certified Medical Interpreter for Koreans who have limited English Proficiency. Being a firm believer that cultural competency is deeply related to its language and without understanding the culture, the language can not be learned perfectly. So I talk a lot about Korean cultures and life styles of its own while teaching the language. I also think that learning should be fun.
Anyone who wants to learn Korean both for fun and serious matter will be more than welcomed. I am bilingual speaking both English and Korean. I have a lot of teaching experience for both languages. Please contact me if you plan to visit Korea individually or in a group and would like to learn Korean beforehand or simply for any reasons. I will make your learning fun and easy.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible
Jason is friendly and likable. After assessing my skill level, he has adapted his tutoring sessions well to suit my needs. He explains concepts clearly and challenges me to go further. I'm very happy so far and have been happy with my progress with the Korean language in these few weeks. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Jason.Tom, 32 lessons with Jason
Great tutor. Would definitely recommend him.
I’m an older person (63) and Jason was great in helping me to correctly pronounce Korean words as well as read them. I will definitely continue my lessons with him.Janet, 7 lessons with Jason
Good working with our three kids
Jason has been very flexible and committed to figuring out how to structure a tutoring session for our three kids of different ages (6, 12, and 16). I would recommend him to other families seeking Korean tutoring for their kids.Rebecca, 18 lessons with Jason
From failing to solid passing
My son was failing Korean I in his 9th grade class. He hated the idea of having a tutor but gave in after two months of learning nothing from his teacher at school. Jason worked with my son an hour a week using the school textbook. With patience and right pacing, Jason was able to coach him through the fundamentals to solidly pass Korean 1 and confidently continuing with Korean II in a few weeks. Thank you Jason!Gayle, 66 lessons with Jason
Jason is very patient and great at explaining the concepts and pronunciation of the language! I liked the platform he uses to teach the lesson so that I have a visual to see.Stephanie, 1 lesson with Jason
Very helpful, flexible, and patient tutor
I learned the basics such as identifying and pronouncing vowels and consonants, how to properly write the time, days of the week, and counting. I received suggestions for reading materials and shows to view become more familiar with speaking and hearing the Korean language.Kimberly, 1 lesson with Jason
Korean Resume Elements - Great Explanations
I am very grateful that Jason takes the time to explain vocabulary breakdowns to me so it's easy for me to understand in the future. I look forward to our biweekly meetings!Alexis, 2 lessons with Jason
I like how he is very, very patient at teaching, doesn’t get mad when you get something wrong. He breaks it down step by step, I happen to be a slow learn and tends to forget easily, so he takes the time to help me relearn what I forgot. Really helpful, quite adjustable, love it and recommend.Nyronna, 20 lessons with Jason
Jason comes highly recommended, especially since he's able to share his screen to help you visually learn. I give him 5 out of 5 stars.James, 1 lesson with Jason
Great preparation for Exchange Program
My 16-year-old daughter has had Jason tutor her for 4 months. The short term goal was to help her out with her high school Korean class. Her long term goal was to be fully prepared for her study abroad program in South Korea. Jason has made himself constantly available for questions in all of my daughter's efforts. She has considered Jason extremely helpful. Very much recommended.Kirk, 10 lessons with Jason
