Personal Description:

Passionate about perfect execution, careful with grammar, and excited about the ways in which language can express one's personality, I could be the ideal language tutor for you.

Teaching Experience:

Three years of music tuition experience in guitar, bass, piano, ukulele, and vocals.
Four years of English teaching experience in Japan.
Eight years of Japanese study with a unique insight to the language that differs from native speakers'.

Teaching Approach:

I can offer multiple lessons a week and advise my students to have at least one. Finder's fee deducted from first lesson.

I believe teaching students from many different walks of life (primary school, secondary school, adults of various ages up to sixty) requires a somewhat flexible approach; some students learn best by choosing their own goals and working towards them while others need more teacher-led classes.

When it comes to languages, I believe a teacher must be calm, encouraging, and diligent with prompts. I have personally attended lessons in which I refused to use my target language purely due to my own fear of making a mistake. Although my teachers were very kind and professional, there were certain steps I believe they could have taken to alleviate my discomfort:

- Drilling new vocabulary with repetition at various speeds.
- Prompting with increasing detail when a student seems stuck.
- Taking every student-made effort seriously and discussing mistakes in as non-personal a way as possible.
- Ensuring proper understanding by using various comprehensive examples of vocabulary and grammar in relatable sentences.

JAPANESE:
I first started studying Japanese in 2012 and really took to developing my literacy skills. I passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (N2) in 2018 and lived and worked in Japanese schools from 2015 - 2019. I often sat the same kanji tests as my students on which I frequently achieved perfect scores.

As a non-native Japanese speaker, I understand the struggles of learning Japanese as a second language and can therefore offer more relatable insight than a native speaker can. I have studied and will teach using Genki I and Genki II, Anki, Duolingo, Youtube, authentic Japanese kanji study books, Shin Kanzen Master, and anything else that will be effective.
