Why SmarterKorean?

 I experienced first hand the difficulties of learning Korean and what other foreigners go through.

Does this sound like you?

  • My Korean teachers can´t explain or answer my questions in detail.

  • No matter how much Korean I listen to or watch I can´t understand anything. I still need English subtitles.

  • Koreans always switch back to speaking in English when I try speaking in Korean.

 SmarterKorean teaches you Korean ¨from the inside out¨. Korean language and culture are very different from the west. Arriving in South Korea without the proper knowledge to help bridge the culture gap often leaves many foreigners isolated from real Korean society.  

My structured curriculum and classes help you get inside the culture and language. Not just memorize words and phrases. 

Why Learn Korean With Me?

  • Majored in Korean Language and Literature at one of South Korea´s top IVY League Universities 

  • 12+ years of experience Speaking, Reading and Writing Korean

  • Worked with several Korean companies and the Korean Institute of Southern California

  • Professional Translator for International companies

I help millennials develop themselves both personally and professionally through learning Korean language and culture. Learning Korean helped open up many doors and transform my life. Whether you are learning Korean for fun as a hobby, travel, or for professional reasons I am here to help you reap the benefits as much as possible.

Student Reviews

Khelsea Purvis, English teacher

It's nice to have a tutor who breaks down the sentence structure of the Korean language one element at a time. SmarterKorean makes sure I understand what I'm saying word for word. I also get to learn neat things about Korean culture during my lessons. I don't think I will find someone more helpful than Nathan when it comes to learning Korean.

Noella Sharese Callahan, English teacher

I like how SmarterKorean tailor each of their lessons towards you and what you want to focus on. I'm currently an EFL teacher in South Korea. And these lessons have been a godsend. I'm now learning more terms and phrases to use in the classroom, which helps me be a more effective teacher. I also like how my tutor/teacher makes me feel comfortable with learning the language and tries to boost my confidence when speaking the language.

Smarter Korean is a great and convenient place to learn Korean. Nate is a wonderful teacher. The classes are fun and engaging. He will get you speaking Korean quickly and explains the grammar points clearly. Anyone that wants to learn Korean, this is a course I would recommend.
