Hi,

I'm a native-born Japanese, who grew up in Tokyo, and has lived in California for more than 20 years. For the past 12 years, I have been teaching Japanese to students of a variety of ages from preschoolers to corporate executives, and skill levels from the entry level to the advanced level.

Among the many reasons you should consider me are:

I have an excellent ability to individualize curricula to meet the needs of all levels of students.

In learning Japanese, even more so than most other languages, understanding the culture and relationships between people is extremely important to speak it correctly. Having grown up in Japan, I bring that perspective to my teaching. With strong communication skills, I am confident I would be valuable to the students.

I am always available to tutor the other subjects. I teach Algebra with crystal clear methods for a subject often disliked and poorly taught. Please let me reverse your feelings toward it.

I would welcome the opportunity and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards,

Misae

Best Teacher and Friend! — Misae is the kindest, funniest, most understanding and certainly most dedicated teacher I've ever had. Misae helped me tremendously learn a brand new language from home as a high school student and is very good with different learning styles. She was never a minute late, and so easy to reach as well as flexible with scheduling. My hour of Japanese with Misae was the most enjoyable hour of my week. ...
