Personal Description:

I am a Japanese national who has completed two Japanese language beginners courses (60 weeks and 20 weeks respectively) as a CACTUS language instructor at colleges based in central Liverpool and Manchester. In keeping with my professional status, I am adept at recognising how best to target my teaching approach, particularly with respect to students who have little or no knowledge of the Japanese language. In a formal course review exercise, I have received an excellent rating from my college students and business individuals (such as an NGO director and a company director) with respect to the various teaching components of the course. I also offer my students the advice and guidance for travel matters in Japan and exam/qualification preparations (the Japanese language Proficiency Test, for example).

Teaching Experience:

Teaching for beginners and casual learners for more than 5 years.
Recent Teaching Experience:
60 weeks (120 hours) in beginners Japanese at language colleges in Liverpool and 20 weeks in Manchester
12 months providing English language instruction to college students in Japan
18 months English-Japanese language translator at a Japanese University
60 weeks at a business establishment (Sony Entertainment) in the North West
34 weeks with the private tuition with various company managers/directors
GCSE External examiner in May 2023

Teaching Approach:

I am able to provide personal tutoring and group tutoring (such as Sony entertainment groups) as required. First lesson will be free for the tutee who purchased 5 lessons and more. I offer Zoom teaching and am equipped with HD camera. An approachable and friendly style to engage students in fully comprehending an unfamiliar language. Tuition is provided in verbal and written Japanese using language props as an aid to understanding, with textbooks and specialist Hiragana and Kanji teaching materials. I have excellent writing skills and I am comfortable at teaching in both formal and less formal surroundings. Tuition can be arranged on a regular or irregular timetable according to the needs of the particular student(s).

I am willing to travel to business settings in the early afternoon ( morning is available, too) upon the tutee's requirement.
Home lessons and the lessons on the weekends would incur extra charges.
