Washington & Lee University (East Asian Studies)
I would like to begin by saying I am a native of the northern Virginia area and a product of the Fairfax County public school system. I have been studying the Japanese language since 8th grade and continued my education by majoring in East Asian Studies, with a Japanese concentration, at a reputable private Virginia university. After graduating, I went to Japan to take part in the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program where I taught Japanese students English for two years. During this time I strengthened my Japanese skills and passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Exam.
I have experience teaching foreign languages to all ages from Kindergarten to high school seniors. Yes, memorization techniques are important for building vocabulary, but I believe true language skills come from conversation and frequent utilization of what is learned in the classroom.
Is pronunciation a problem? Contact me! Is becoming a better conversationalist a goal? Contact me! I want to present a relaxed and productive environment for speaking Japanese. Let me help you or your child become more fluent today!
If you're interested in improving your English writing skills, please contact me about that too! Konnichiwa everyone!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
