May I ask you first, what are your reasons for learning Korean? Are you interested in learning Korean but don’t know where to begin? Are you learning Korean for your career, or to work in Korea? Do you want to understand Korean songs or TV shows better? Everyone may have a different reason, and I'm curious to hear yours! Please let me know so I may help you to reach your goals faster.
Korean is a beautiful language, but it is very different from English in structure grammar. Also, there are lots of pronunciations that will require some familiarization. I will help you get past some of these obstacles and to stay motivated to keep learning until you reach your goals!

Language is a fun trick. Grammar has a foundational importance to every language, however, learning the nuances of the language becomes primary, the more you learn it. You can speak a language grammatically correctly from start to end, however, what makes you sound like a native is understanding and utilizing the feelings and nuances of the particular language. I am a 1.5 generation Korean, with fluency in both Korean and English. I can help you impress the Korean folks around you before you know it!

When you request lessons please message me to let me know your goal and your Korean level. This helps me prepare for the class. Unfortunately, if I do not hear from you I may need to reject your request. I love meeting all my students so I do not want to do that unless absolutely necessary.

📢 CANCELLATION, RESCHEDULING, AND NO SHOWS
If you need to reschedule or cancel a lesson, I need to be notified 24 hours in advance. If you ask to change after this 24-hour period I will have to charge you the full price of the lesson. This same rule applies if you are over 15 minutes late and you have not contacted me beforehand. I adjust my life and schedule around these lessons, so please understand why I need to be strict about this type of situation.

➫ Over the course of 7 years, I have taught English at a cram school, secondary school, and one-to-one tutor sessions in Korea. During my graduate school, I was a teaching assistant for colleges. I checked the college students’ homework and gave ...

Eileen is patient and methodical, and she explains difficult points well. I'm grateful for her help!
Lynnesha L.
This was my very first session and it was great. We jumped right into work after we talked about my starting level. She was very patient and very easy to talk with. I loved the fact that she broke down the sounds to me from how the tone should sound to how my face should move for certain vowels and consonants. I can't wait until second session.

I've been taking 1:1 Korean lessons with Park Cheol Hong for a year now and I cannot recommend him enough as a teacher. He is incredibly dedicated, patient, kind, and invested in his students' growth. He's willing to check homework and answer questions between lessons, and can answer every follow-up question / context question I pose! I started with virtually zero Korean language familiarity but can now have conversations with my dad (who is Korean). Park Cheol Hong provides helpful supplementary worksheets and videos to help me better understand concepts and makes topics relevant to my daily life. I absolutely plan to continue taking lessons as long as I can!
Tracie R.
I've been learning Korean with Cheol Hong since April (it's August 30th). He is an incredibly dedicated teacher, patient, understanding and funny. He encourages me to practice my Korean every day (which I do) and he carefully reviews each submission between lessons to help me get better. I'm adopted and wanted to learn Korean so I could better connect to my Korean heritage (my grandmother is Korean) and I have learned so much during my studies. I would highly recommend Cheol Hong to anyone who is interested in learning Korean. He's the best!
Jessica
My daughter's first lesson with Mr. Park was wonderful. He was thorough, engaging and gave her lots of encouragement throughout the lesson. The material he sent afterward to help with her homework between lessons will be very helpful. She can't wait for her next session with Mr. Park.

"Suyeon is an excellent instructor and has helped me expand my proficiency in medical Korean. Although I didn't expect her to know medical Korean terminology, she has gone out of her way to research terms to teach me how to use them properly. She will work with your needs and ways of learning. She is patient and very respectful. If anyone wants to learn Korean from a well qualified instructor who is easy going and patient then I would strongly consider Suyeon."

"I can honestly say I am very lucky to have Christina as a Korean teacher. Learning a new language from the ground up can be very daunting, however, Christina makes learning Korean fun and easy to grasp. She is very helpful in creating a strong foundation in which you can easily build an understanding of more advanced words and sentence structures. Of course, much of the learning experience involves your own effort in studying, Christina helps properly guide your course in learning efficiently. Many of my Korean friends are very impressed at how fast I am learning and have commented at how great a teacher Christina is based on my progression. If you are considering learning Korean with the right teacher, look no further, Christina is the right teacher for you!"
