Personal Description:

I am a Japanese language educator and a social scientist. I studied in Japan on the Japanese Ministry of Education scholarship and have a university degree in teaching Japanese as well as Level 1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency (JLPT) Test and the JETRO Business Japanese certificate. Over my post-graduate education I attended 24 courses in social sciences, history, arts, and Oriental languages. Currently a doctoral researcher at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, I also work at the JLPT exam in London.

In the time I took off from my academic career I worked for a number of Japanese multinationals and SMEs. Using that experience as a Certified Cross-Cultural Trainer I give workshops on various cultural and business aspects of Japan.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught Japanese for over 20 years and Sociology and Anthropology for six years. I have successfully prepared numerous students for their GCSE`s, A-levels, IB, and university examinations. I also teach adults for business and hobby purposes and mentor undergraduate and postgraduate students for essays, dissertations and exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Flexible, consistent, friendly. No tutorial of mine is the same, as I tailor each to the student's specific situation at hand. I use a variety of digital and print learning materials to suit my students` wishes and needs the best possible way.

In my teaching, I use the Socratic approach to help students develop an active understanding of their subject. That means supporting them closely towards finding their own answers, refining their own analytical skills, and ultimately gaining the full ability to continue on their own. I see my student as a star in their life project and myself as a technician behind the stage ensuring that she or he realises their potential and achieves their purpose in life.
