The Japanese Language Proficiency Test or JLPT for short, is probably one of the few highest goals to reach when studying the Japanese language. Hi, my name is Mark N., and I have set my sights on reaching the JLPT N1 test. The test is arranged from N5-N1, with N5 being the easiest. For all sorts of people, the test has different meaning, but for me, I believe those who take the test are testing themselves to see how far they've come, and to see how far they may want to go. Passing the test doesn't have too much meaning out here in the US; however, even getting a certificate stating that your understanding is on some higher level than others, may help out your resume if your stating that you can understand Japanese. In Japan, passing N2-N1 you can apply to become an actual student in a Japanese college rather than having to study abroad through some school in the US.
With that being said, I have passed the JLPT N5 and this year I am going to take the N4 test. I have been studying Japanese for a little over 5 years, and I believe that since passing N5, I now have a full grasp on the basics. I can tutor Japanese 1-2 on the college level, with a high stress to grammar and pronunciation. I can teach people the Japanese Kana (written language): Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. My methods are to make sure the student can read and write properly, while establishing an ever-evolving sense to learn something new without out having a teacher or tutor around. I believe that a good amount of exposure: be it through listening to Japanese NHK (the Japanese News station) podcast, to listening to Japanese audiobooks, will continue to help train the ear. Grammar will be stressed through slow speaking and writing practices.
My personal goal with students is to help them get to the JLPT N5 level so they can then learn to grow on their own. I am thankful that you have taken the time to look this over and I am thankful in the future should you accept my services.
