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.
Corinne
I've been taking lessons from Mr. Park for a few months now, and I've been really enjoying them! I've taken group classes before, but this is my first 1:1 lesson experience, and Mr. Park does a great job catering and personalizing his approach to what you're interested in, even if it's not quite language related! For example, I told him I was looking to study Korean art history, and he sent me additional resources specific to that, and sometimes even devotes time to discuss different facets of it if it comes up in the lesson. He also provides a deep dive into the Sino/Native-Korean roots of different words which I personally find helpful and interesting. He is patient, encouraging, and personable, and does a fantastic job explaining things even if you don't quite get it the first time. Highly recommend!
