The instructor for this course whom will be answering your questions, Jeremy, has 9 years of experience learning Korean through self-directed study. He never took any formal classes and used grammar books very infrequently. A couple years into his language learning journey he started taking one on one classes with Korean teacher, Yeojin Shin. After a year of studying together, Yeojin was brought on by Educasia, an educational program development company (more info below), to develop a Korean language learning program. Eventually, Jeremy was brought on the team as well. Yeojin designed the curriculum for the course while Jeremy provided the perspective of a learner with experience as well as video editing and marketing expertise. Together with the guidance and support of Educasia and after a year of research and development, they created the course you see here today!
Jeremy has been teaching English in one on one classes for 6 years now, and has a Youtube channel called MotivateKorean in which he shares language learning advice, tips, and Korean teaching videos to a growing audience. He is a very self motivated, endlessly curious learner who believes that language learning is one of the most rewarding pursuits a human being can take on.
Yeojin has been teaching one on one Korean classes for nearly 8 years as well, and has also taught group classes in her community. She is passionate and committed to what she does - fostering learning within her students. Jeremy is certainly a testimonial to her excellent personalized teaching style. She locks onto her students and helps them build up from where they are, a skill very hard to come by in teachers - especially among those who are crossing the language and cultural barrier from Korean to English.
