  Hello, my name is Mina T and I'm 26 years old and currently living in Japan. I am a native Japanese speaker and teach Japanese. I have been an online Japanese teacher with Verbalplanet since May 2019. I can speak the following languages fluently: Japanese, English, Persian. I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students. 
About me - English

Hello! My name is Tahmina! A little bit about my background... I am fluent in Japanese (my first language) since I spent 20 years of my life in Japan. I grew up in Japan and graduated from a Japanese school.

Also, having English as my second language, students (English speakers) experience a greater progress because there is no barrier to effective and clear communication during our lessons, which is extremely important in learning a new language!

Qualifications & Experience

I have almost 8 years of professional teaching experience, providing online lessons, group lessons and one-on-one lessons. Besides my private tutoring experiences, I was also hired as a Japanese teacher in a private school located in downtown Toronto. I had 12-15 students in my class, ranging in age from 12 to 24 years old.

Currently, I live in Japan and I have 48 students that I teach regularly in person, 21 students that I give online lessons to. I teach English to Japanese people and Japanese to English speaking individuals. Also, I work at language school as a teacher and I have a total of 46 students.

Teaching Approach

My teaching method includes the use of textbook which I employed while teaching at Toronto Japanese Language School (textbook, GENKI at all levels). I prepare and work with my own worksheets with different topics for each lesson.

Also, employing movies (ex.Studio Ghibri) and Anime are a crucial part of my teaching tactic since the visual learning is highly effective and even recommended by teaching experts. For language learners, film can often convey a message better than printed or spoken words. Depending on my student's preference and proficiency level, we can also have a relaxing chat which is a great way to improve one's speaking skill as well as her/his pronunciation.

Understanding and applying what a student needs into my lessons is a key to my student's achievement and success, therefore, please feel free to make suggestions and requests so we can work on your goals together!!
