italki teacher since Oct 29, 2021
While teaching Korean at colleges for the past few decades, I have continuously witnessed the high demands of Korean education following the global popularity of Korean culture. Now I don't teach full-time but want to help those who wish to master Korean online. I want to make you express yourself in Korean no matter what your level.
I aim to provide a quality education to anyone who wishes to learn Korean at an affordable rate. I'm a professional, patient, and friendly Korean teacher who have experienced teaching of all levels and knows how to teach Korean efficiently and correctly.
Me as a Teacher
I have taught Korean for the last few decades in the U.S. colleges and on italki. I want to share my teaching expertise with people who wish to learn Korean. Come to enjoy studying Korean with a teacher of vigor and clarity.
I provide all the class materials including ppt slides, class contents, workbooks, etc. We work on textbooks (no need purchase) and additional materials for practice. While we explore essential grammars, students will focus on speaking, listening, and reading. Those who need a customized lesson is also welcome. Feel free to let me know what you need and consult with me.
My lessons & teaching style
I value a communicative approach to Korean, which means that I emphasize the importance of speaking. Since we are meeting 1-on-1, we can do enough practices in speaking and listening so you can immediately express yourself in Korean. If a student takes 2 lessons a week and study everyday by oneself for a year, s/he can freely communicate with Koreans in a daily situation.
Each 50min-long lesson will run (roughly) as follows: homework feedback, main contents of the given lesson (grammar, vocab, culture), listening to audio, creating our own dialogues, assignment.
Cancellation policy: I follow the italki policy. Please make changes, if needed, 24 hours prior to your lesson.

Park Seonsaengnim is my favorite teacher (out of 6) which I ever worked together through iTalki.
Context: My starting level was around late beginner as I could read and write and spoke some phrases. I intend to study over a period of more than one year and after more than 20 classes I can wholeheartedly state to have found the right teacher for a long-term teaching relationship.
King Sejong Institute material is the main class content. Besides being easily accessible (no additional cost for book, workbook and audio files) I found it to work well for me.
Park Seonsaengnim is a very intelligent and warm person. She is a good motivator, listener and has very clear pronunciation.
My favorite part about our classes is her humor and her unique ability to transfer Korean ideas or cultural/language context into western perspective. She excels in that also due to her teaching experience in the US and thereby her very strong English skills.
I always look forward to our classes. Thank you!

I have been learning Korean with Hyun선행님 for a year and a half now and as I look back on my progress over this time period, I notice a big improvement in my reading, speaking and listening skills. I thank Hyun all the time for her patience with me after class and her reply has always been that she enjoys teaching and it's evident in her smiles, her patience and in the structured materials she provides. She's a wonderful teacher to have and if you take her classes, you'll notice an improvement yourself when you look back on your own progress. 선생님, 고맙습니다.

I've had about a dozen lessons with 박선생님 and I'm learning a ton of new things. Her lessons are very well organized and allow you to practice all your skills, speaking listening and reading. She's very patient and knowledgable, and also speaks very good English, which is very helpful for a beginner who needs clear grammar explanations.
I already feel more confident saying simple sentences in Korean. 감사합니다!

I've really appreciated Hyun's teaching style. Teaching me historical perspective of the Korean language, as well as referring to K-pop and K-Dramas to help me with pronunciation and vocabulary.
