Hello everyone! First of all, I'm very glad that you're interested in Japanese!
I was born in Japan and I am a native Japanese speaker. I was born in Kyushu and lives in the U.S now.
I love learning foreign languages, so I majored in English at my university and took a coursework for teaching Japanese to foreigners as a minor subject. Learning foreign languages means learning other countries. I believe it has a big meaning for all of us.
I used to work at a junior high school in Japan and taught English. Now, I work as an after school teacher. I love to teach children new things and learn together.
I hope to share my cultural, experience, and knowledge with you guys through teaching Japanese!
- Personal tutor for middle school & high school students (4 years)
- English teacher at junior high school in Japan (5 2/1 years)
- Coordinator at a translation company (3 years)
- Teaching certificate( English )
- Child Development Certificate
My goal is making students be independent learners. Once you gain confidence, I'm pretty sure you will be a successful learner.
I use English and Japanese when I teach you writing and reading, but I will encourage you to use Japanese when you focus on speaking and listening.
Using visual ads is sufficient when we learn foreign languages. I will use the materials which are good for you.
I use anime (Detective Conan) to explain some unique expressions for those who likes to learn using anime.
An example video.
Please feel free to request what you want to learn.
I'll provide your lesson plan and assignments if you want.
I look forward to seeing you guys at lessons!
