If you haven’t already, first read my post on “What is a Hagwon and What you can expect as a Foreigner!”
I feel like I hit the jackpot when I found a math tutoring Hagwon with an English speaker. I didn’t expect this, tutoring was going to be the hardest school to find for English speakers and here is one right here in Paengseong.
The easiest way to find these locations is to download the NaverMaps app then copy and paste the Hangul address into it. It will take some guess work since everything is in hangul but Naver Maps is similar to other GPS navigation so you can figure out the menus without being able to read it.

Mr. Kang has near perfect English and was very open to the idea of English speaking students attending his Hagwon. I was so excited after talking with him, I know Humphreys residents need highschool math tutors and I think he would be perfect. He was extremely knowledgeable and explained to me that there would be a road bump with American students because of how differently our two countries teach math. He told me that in Korea, students learn how to do all the basic operations from their first grade of school (decimals, fractions, multiplying, adding etc) and build upon those skills each year. If American students came, he would expect them to use his textbooks and to learn important math concepts from the ground up.
