*ACCEPTING NEW STUDENTS NOW!*

I have taught English to Koreans back in Seoul for more than 10 years, so I know exactly how different these two languages are.

Based on this understanding of how I need to approach non-Korean speaker especially whose mother tongue is English, I am confident that I can let you start studying Korean the easiest way and make the class fun with lots of introduction of Korean cultures and history.

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.
