Hello, my name is Suebeet Kim. I am a private Korean language tutor. I was born and raised in Seoul, Korea. I have a B.A in Global Studies from Northwestern.

Since 2005, I have helped students improve their confidence in the Korean language. Whether you are struggling or simply looking for enrichment Korean tutoring, I will create a customized approach tailored specifically for your needs.

I have experience working with all levels and have a passion to help students excel. (Grades K-12, College Students, and Adults) I teach the Korean language from Beginner to Proficient level and Business conversation. I have the experience and aptitude for creating a positive learning environment where students are challenged while enjoying the class.

I strongly believe that repetition is key to learning a new language, and I try to impress this fact on students while retaining a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I also encourage my students to travel overseas to experience immersion in the language and culture.

Thank you for considering me. I look forward to speaking with you and working with you to help fulfill your potential.


Suebeet Kim.

Why I’m Different?

Great communication and interaction

I offer tutoring either in-person or with live interaction via Skype, so we communicate in real-time.

You know exactly who you’re dealing with

I make all of my experiences, qualifications, learning resources, etc. available on my website for my students so you can really get a sense of who I am.

You’ll work with me every time

I offer continuity. I manage long-term learning goals, routinely communicate with you, and develop long-term relationships with all my students.

Unique approach

My unique approach to tutoring is driven by my philosophy which emphasizes what is most important – the needs of my students.

My genuine desire to help you succeed

I started tutoring in high school and continued throughout my college years and beyond. I chose to tutor because it was extremely rewarding and something I truly enjoyed.

Giving back

Every month, I donate a percentage of profits to charities and organizations that are important to our society. Please see below for information about some of these worthy organizations.
