Have you ever wanted to learn about another language or culture, or are you currently studying Japanese and want to sharpen your skills? I can help! I have a B.A. in Japanese Language and Culture, and have spent time abroad in Japan in areas such as Tokyo, Nara, and Osaka. I will help in any areas you desire to work on, such as grammar, vocabulary, writing hiragana, katakana and kanji, conversational skills, and more. I have helped a number of people with these skills, and was able to help them understand concepts they had trouble with in their classes. I can work with people at beginning to intermediate levels, and I am willing to work with any age group. I will tailor my lessons to meed your needs.
Because language and culture are so strongly linked, we will also learn about the culture of Japan while broadening your understanding of the language. If you have specific interests that you would like to pursue through your studies of Japanese, I am happy to accommodate you and incorporate those interests, be it anime, fashion, or something else.
If you are seeking to improve your writing skills in English, I am glad to help! Although my major was Japanese, I have had many courses that involved extensive English writing and have excelled in my courses. I am excellent at peer reviewing papers and will help you understand how to structure your essays in a logical way that will make your thoughts clear and maintain the interest of your readers, staying on topic and expanding your ideas to see where they lead. There is an art to putting words on paper in a way that really gets your idea across and makes it resonate. We each have our own distinct style, and I will help you find yours.
I have experience teaching others how to write and have had great success with helping people improve their grades. I will work with anyone from middle school all the way through college. Again, I am happy to tailor your lessons to meet your specific needs.
