Hi I'm Matthew, an experienced Korean teacher with a 4 year degree in Korean from Brigham Young University. I also have three years of broad experience living, working, and doing volunteer work in South Korea. I excel at simplifying Korean grammar and helping students quickly accelerate from beginner to intermediate, and intermediate to advanced. I am a strong partner for accountability in your own individual study and am also an excellent conversation partner. And if there's something I don't know I can always ask my beautiful South-Korean wife, Eunjeong.

Private Korean Teacher

I came from South Korean and have more than 17 years of teaching Korean experience. I am currently working at the Korean school where I am also the principal of the school. I have taught students and adults at various levels, from the beginners level to the advanced level, and by explaining the differences between Korean and English to students during my first class, my students quickly pick up this beautiful language.

I have completed the course of becoming a Korean language instructor in Korea and have gained experience and skills from teaching Korean at Korean language school and through private lessons.

I evaluate students' levels and then select the appropriate materials to provide the most effective learning experience. I discuss with students and arrange convenient times for each other to study Korean too.

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.
