Hi everyone, I am your tutor, Soo! I was born and raised in Seoul.
I'll help you and give confidence to you if you are ready to learn Korean with passion. I understand how difficult it is to learn a new language (transferred to University of Toronto St. George) I took all classes online in Seoul in ENGLISH with students from various countries because of Covid. This is why I'm confident in teaching you the most effective way to learn Korean!
I have developed communication skills while working on team projects with students from many countries. Also, I'm open-minded to different cultures and I'm keen on getting to experience different cultures.
Me as a Teacher
Since 2015, I have been volunteering to teach Korean, English, and Japanese to Korean and international students. Also, I've been teaching online students planning to apply to Korean universities and studying abroad in Korea. In these classes, I checked grammar, vocabulary words, pronunciation, and Korean slang through running zoom and google online docs together. We have had interesting classes on specific topics. I can help you to attend the class with confidence, so believe in me and follow me!
My lessons & teaching style
Confidence is of prime importance when you learn languages. My class is not rigid and boring, but always friendly and enjoyable!!
I provide Korean lessons customized to the student's interests. The course material will be a news article you chose, Korean music lyrics, a journal you wrote, or official Korean books (pdf file version). If there is something you would like to study personally, please send me the file in advance, and I'll prepare the class based on your material.
If you want to learn Korean even after your class, you can do your homework. You can research and understand synonyms and antonyms of vocabulary words you learned in class.

I’ve now had around 10 classes with Soo Ho. She’s a great teacher. The lessons are always flexible, she’s open to making changes based on my input, and she’s supportive and encouraging. Meeting with Soo Ho weekly is a great supplement to a local weekly Korean class I take, and she helps me learn a more natural way to use Korean versus what’s taught in a formal textbook. I highly recommend her!

I've become much more comfortable and confident with Korean and creating sentences after my lessons with Soo Ho. The teacher provides outside materials to allow for preparing for the next class while re-enforcing the last class's content, which helps me a lot with practicing and remembering.

Great 1st lesson! The teacher was patient and took thorough notes during the lesson for my review. She helped me to find the right word or how to say a sentence naturally when I didn't know. Also, she supplied good materials for my further study and homework after the lesson.

Ho Soo, is super nice. And she always helps me when I can’t remember words or can’t form a sentence properly. She’s very patient. And I love that she has different topics to talk about for each lesson. She’s great! 😊

Sooho was extremely gracious and kind when I had to cancel last minute. :) I appreciate her flexibility and professionalism!

호수 씨 is always very patient and never rushes me when I’m trying to find the words, and I appreciate that. I’m very slow - at learning, at thinking, at speaking. It’s a gift to have a patient tutor who supportively waits instead of jumping in with the answers so that my brain can make the necessary connections. 도와줘서 너무 너무 고마워요! ^^
