Hi. My name is Yonnie. I am an outstanding tutor who teaches the Korean language with confidence and zeal, demonstrated through years of tutoring experience and my own rigorous study.
Being a native Korean, you can trust that you will always be taught the standard, accurate pronunciation and correct grammar. Having lived in both Korea and the United States, I am extremely comfortable with both cultures. It is my goal to provide a catered instruction that simply isn’t available through textbooks, websites, or wherever else you may search.
About Me:
I was born in and raised in a large city, south of Seoul, Korea. Compared to the size of South Korea, there are many varying dialects throughout the regions that carry heavy accents. Having been raised in Seoul, I speak the standard Korean with the most accurate pronunciation.
After my marriage to an Air Force officer and relocating to the U.S., I attended Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, majoring in Management Information Systems. I completed my studies, graduating with honors (cum laude).
As I raised my son in the U.S., I taught him the Korean language. From the time he was born, I only spoke to him in Korean at home. He is now 24 years old and fluent in Korean with perfect pronunciation. He’s also fluent in the culture, which I find to be as important as learning to speak the language.
As a proud ambassador representing my wonderful country, I would like to introduce you to Korea by teaching you its language and sharing my deep love for Korean culture.

Awesome Teacher!

Today was my first class with Yonnie and I really learned so much! Not a minute was waisted. She used every second of our time to introduce new subjects and add more practice. She really adjusts to your learning level and I really believe that it well worth it. She is also very kind and encouraging. You really won’t regret booking her. I had so much fun!

Excellent, Experienced Tutor

I started lessons with Yonnie with zero prior experience in Korean language. Yonnie helped me to learn basic grammar, speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. After 5 weeks of tutoring, I feel that I have a great foundation to continue studying Korean at the Intermediate Level. Without Yonnie's encouragement, I could never have covered so much material in such a short amount of time. Her experience allows her understand the common mistakes that beginners make, and she introduces new grammar and vocabulary in fun and memorable ways. Also, I really appreciate that Yonnie was always on time, and utilized every minute of our meetings to the fullest. For anyone looking to learn Korean, I recommend Yonnie highly.

Rewarding and encouraging

3rd lesson and I'm learning to read small simple sentences. It's hard, but rewarding. I'm encouraged to study and having a teacher push me to do so is very helpful.

Patient and Professional Tutor

My 15 year old daughter had her first tutoring session today with Yonnie and she really enjoyed it. Yonnie is professional and easy to work with and my daughter was excited to share what she learned with me afterwards. I feel that my daughter will gain a solid foundation in Korean and she is looking forward to her next lesson.

Great experience, looking forward to more lessons

Yonnie was excellent! My daughter is more motivated than ever to improve her Korean. Yonnie is great at getting my daughter to work on her pronounciation and made it fun.

Excellent Very Engaging Tutor

She was very effective in getting Mark to interact with her. She was able to keep his interest and attention. She sparked his interest thus motivating him to study and continue taking his class. I definitely recommend her.

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

My daughter felt that Yonnie was the best Korean teacher she has had thus far. Yonnie corrected her grammar on a few key points and really helped with pronunciation. Looking forward to continuing with her services.

Patient and experienced tutor!

My first session with Yonnie seonsaengnim consisted of a review of the korean alphabet and basic phrases. Although I had already gone over these things in self-study, Yonnie gave me a great many useful tips that would've probably taken me months to realize. During the lesson she was always very patient and would repeat words so that I could get a better sense of the pronunciation. You can tell that she's passionate about teaching about the Korean language, which is always a very important quality to have! Next lesson we'll move on from the alphabet to chapter one in the book. I can't wait!!
