My name is Mae, and I am a native speaker in Japanese and English.
I was born in the US but went to a full time Japanese school from K-Middle school. I can read, write and speak both Japanese and English. I've graduated American high school, have AA degree for undergrad and have a BA from California Institute of the Arts. I understand that it is difficult to obtain a balance of two languages. I hope to deliver not only the study of Japanese but its rich culture and history.
In addition, I've taught Art for over 10 years in a private art school. My passion to teach comes from the very joy of seeing children thrive in the learning environment. Besides Japanese, I offer art classes where children can express their creativity using different mediums such as pastels, watercolor, acrylics and oil painting. I can assist in technical and expressionistic art. I'd like to share my background in modern art with students in discussing how art is another form of language and expression of self.
I favor to build a curriculum bases on the student's needs and interest.
Please contact me and we can further discuss details.
I look forward to hearing from you!
