*Nice to meet you.* Hi, Iโ€™m Hyun Ku Lee and you can call me Dani. Iโ€™m Korean and live in Seoul. I was a product designer. But not anymore. I have many foreign friends and I like to help out people. That is why I decided to become a Korean teacher. I'm open-minded. I met various people through 3000 lessons and I'm a very patient, friendly person. You don't have to be nervous. ๐Ÿ˜Š I think learning a language is more like physical exercise. You need to study hard, but you also need to practice regularly to get used to a new language like you got your mother tongue. If youโ€™re ready to get new language muscles, study with me. I'll be your personal coach and I will help you do my best. ๐Ÿ‘

Classes with Hyunku are always fun but also very well structured. He is a demanding teacher with a lot of warmth and always supports their students. He is very flexible and always adjust the speed of learning and levels to your current life situation.

Very friendly and comfortable environment, understanding teacher! Assigns helpful homework, gives feedback on any mistakes you make, and is very flexible with lessons, homework, any class date changes, etc. I have been learning with him for more than a year now and my grammar, overall Korean level, and speaking confidence has increased a lot!

Hyun ku rocks! Weโ€™ve been having classes for a while. Working with him has really accelerated my learning. Heโ€™s so flexible. I usually come in with topics/grammar that I want to learn and heโ€™s able to effectively help me study them. When I donโ€™t have a topic in mind, heโ€™s always prepared to give me one. I especially appreciate that he mainly speaks and explains concepts to me in Korean whereas some other teachers tend to mainly speak in English. Heโ€™s learned about my interests and even tailors conversations/example sentences to incorporate them! Heโ€™s very encouraging when I speak and corrects me in constructive ways by showing me more natural methods to explain my thoughts. With his help, I feel more confident when conversing with natives in my area. I look forward to our next class. Choose this teacher if you need helpโ€”you wonโ€™t regret it.

Best teacher on italki! Ive had a few different korean teachers so far but I love the way this class is set up and the book we use. It is very detailed with a lot of grammar and vocab to study. I love how we do listening speaking vocab and practice dialogues in only 45 minutes! I feel like im learning way more information than I did in other classes! The teacher is always friendly and disciplined as well which I need ๐Ÿคฃ
