Principal and Head Teacher Harry Kwak Ha Rim
Mr. Harry obtained his Master’s degree from Yonsei University Graduate School in Seoul, Korea and received his Teaching License for Korean Language Education from the Ministry of Education, Singapore. Even with more than 20 years of teaching experience under his belt, Mr. Harry’s passion for
sharing the Korean language and culture has never faltered. He has been teaching Korean to Singaporeans since the centre was established in 2006 and knows exactly how to help them understand and remember his teachings.
Having abandoned his career as a hotshot architect to pursue his dreams of educating Singaporeans about the Korean language and culture, Mr. Harry is no doubt passionate about his craft. He also has a talent for singing and has performed in front of huge audiences, so he might sing for you if you insist enough!
You often hear peals of laughter coming from his classroom as he never fails to add in a dash of humour whenever he’s teaching. He makes sure to put a heavy focus on speaking and conversational skills when he teaches his basic classes and has received endless praise from students for doing so.
