Dear Prospective Students,
I am interested in teaching Japanese, its culture, and sharing my cross-cultural communications experience with you. For my class, I use language immersion program approach and try to use only Japanese as much as possible. For grammar lessons such as verb conjugation and particles, I use text books, "Japanese for Busy People", but the emphasis is on improving students' speaking ability. I also help students prepare for JLPT test and their business trips to Japan.
I graduated from Columbia University with an MA, and took a Japanese Language Pedagy course over there. I have been teaching Japanese at two language schools for several years after I worked for an international organization in Washington DC. The class is held a few minutes walk away from the Bethesda Metro station. There is a parking lot nearby.
I have taught Japanese immersion program and conversation classes at Berlitz. I also have teaching experience at community colleges in Texas and two graduate schools in Japan. I graduated from Teachers College, Columbia University (MA), Southern Methodist University (MFA), and Sophia University, Tokyo, Japan (BA).
