안녕하세요, 김성수 입니다. 저는 여러분에게 한국어를 가르쳐 드리고 싶습니다.
Hi, my name is Seongsoo, and I teach Korean.
저는 한국에서 태아나고 자랐습니다. 미국에서 7년 정도 공부하고 한국으로 돌아와서 지금은 서울에 살고 있습니다.
I was born and raised in South Korea. I studied in the United States for 7 years. And now I am back in Korea and living in Seoul, Korea.
I speak Korean, English, and Japanese. Korean is my mother tongue, and I use standard Korean. Also, I speak English and Japanese. Regarding Japanese, I can just carry on a general conversation.まだ私の日本語が上手じゃないけれど日本語で話すのが面白くて簡単な会話ができます。Although my Japanese is currently not that good, I enjoy talking and having some conversations in Japanese.
Me as a Teacher
I have a lot of experience teaching Korean to foreigners and always enjoy it- I led numerous one-on-one sessions for American college students and taught Korean courses for American high school students as well as I had some one-on-one lessons with adults.
I love to teach Korean because we can talk about many different things and share different ideas and perspectives. I think Learning a language is also learning the culture. So I am looking forward to sharing Korean culture and my experience with you and learning from you. I believe we will have a great conversation, and this class will be a great learning experience.

I always look forward to my weekly Korean lesson with Seongsoo. I never feel nervous to make a mistake or ask a question because the atmosphere is comfortable and fun, which is important for me when learning language. The amount I learn in a 30-minute lesson is amazing, and being able to feel your progress is so nice! Thank you for all your help so far.

I have learned so much and so quickly during my lessons with Seongsoo. He gives wonderful explanations, relevant information about the language and culture, and is so supportive of my learning. I highly recommend this class to beginners especially. I look forward to every lesson and can feel my progress already even though we just started!! Thank you!

Today we went over location marking particles, new vocab focusing on places, and putting it into to practice. We did a general mix of reading, speaking and listening today. But mainly focused on making sentences based on real life to give context to the workbook.
Still having trouble with pronunciation, but Mr. Kim is understanding and corrects me when it happens. I tend to try repeating the correct way to pronounce a word a few time after, to make sure I have it down (at least for a bit).
All in all a good lesson.

I had a great experience with my first Korean teacher, Seongsoo, on iTalki. His approach of tailoring classes to my level and needs was exactly what I was looking for. He asked relevant questions, tried to understand my Korean learning challenges and involved me in planning our classes, showing his dedication to teaching and helping students. Looking forward to more classes with him!

Today we went over subject markers, vocab, and pure Korean numbers with a focus on speaking and listening. For me listening is something I have a lot of trouble with, as I get really confused with similar sounds. Mr. Kim was very patient with me and went over the practice examples slow enough speed for me to understand.
My reading is still better than speaking or listening but we are making progress.
