My name is Emiko, and Japanese
is my native language
. I have been in this country for 16 years. I have taught Japanese language classes and culture classes privately and also for elementary schools' after-school program and town recreation programs since 2012. I am in the program of intermediate Japanese Teacher Program in NYC and hold a certificate of teaching Japanese from Japan Society in NYC.
I was born and raised in Japan, graduated Japanese college in Japanese culture and arts major and worked as a full-time employee for Japanese company in Tokyo. I moved to the United States with my husband and graduated college here in 2002.
Through my experience of teaching culture and language classes for younger age in local activity classes, I became confident and gained my knowledge of teaching technique. I am capable teaching Japanese not only for business
level but also young age children.
I strongly believe learning new language is depend on instructor's technique and motivation. I respect each student needs and focus on the requirement while retaining relaxed and friendly atmosphere. My class style is very creative to attract students. Sometimes it will include some traditional art
craft activities depend on student needs. Also, I believe in learning with action, so I would include conversation exercise with simple actions.
Teaching curriculums can be arranged for each student's need. For example, using original handouts, toy tools, games, flash
cards, or books, singing
poems, and writing letters.
Thank you so much for your interest in my class. I look forward to hearing from you.
