I am originally from Japan, and now I have lived in this country for over 20 years. I used to tutor English while I was at college in Japan. Now, here in America, I tutor my mother tongue, Japanese. It is my pleasure to help those who are interested in learning Japanese. While learning Japanese language, we also talk about Japan's culture, history, geography, politics, economics, and so on.

Approved subjects

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.

Geography

I LOVE GEOGRAPHY, and I would love to help someone who wants to learn geography or someone who needs help of geography. Learning geography is more than memorization of the places: it is to know how people in the world live according to their unique cultural, economical, and environmental conditions. Let's have fun!

Japanese

I am a native Japanese. I LOVE JAPANESE, and I love to help someone who wants to learn Japanese. Learning a language involves learning its culture. While learning Japanese, let's learn a Japanese culture. We can talk about music, literature, history, business, and whatever you are interested in about Japan. Let's have fun.

Best tutor I could have hoped for! — Since the first day I met Ty, I could tell he was going to be an great tutor.
