My name is Barbara M. I was born in Hamburg, Germany and raised in Japan. I have been tutoring for the past six years in Cape Coral, Florida. I grew up in Japan and came to the USA after I met my husband. Having a Japanese mother and German father meant I was surrounded by both languages, becoming fluent in both. I earned my IB in German in high school and took the O-level exam at Oxford University in London. I passed the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test at level N2 and am studying for the N1.
Tutoring is my passion. Learning languages can be challenging, but I try to adjust my lesson plan according to my student’s need. Through my years of tutoring I had students telling me how they were so excited that they were able to use what they learned from me. I do set goals for students and try to lead them with positive encouragement. Each student has their own pace of learning Japanese or German. In my lesson I use books, magazines, and songs; if a student has material, I will implement it in their class. I give homework since I firmly believe students need to review what they learn and hopefully it will lead them to ask more questions. I also provide review sheets, depending on the student’s skills.
I hope to see you soon!
I have worked at a language school in Japan where I taught English. I have created lesson plans too. Recently, I taught at a VPK classroom to children. I try to use different approaches for students for them to feel comfortable to learn the language.
I have passed N2 Japanese proficiency test and have been tutoring in this subject for the past six years. I grew up speaking Japanese with my mother too.
