All of Akin’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Akin’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

English

In addition to being a native English speaker, I am also well aware of the associated challenges of learning the language. I am TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certified, which allows me to use a specific methodology for effectively teaching the language.

In addition to the pedagogical knowledge I have gained for teaching English, I also have experiential knowledge working as an English instructor in a foreign country.

Japanese

My qualifications for Japanese tutoring lie mostly in my experience living in Japan, in addition to my studies of the language while in college.

While living in Japan, I worked with Japanese staff, many of which did not speak English very well. I would communicate with them in Japanese to improve our communication.

Not only do I maintain a strong understanding of Japanese grammar, syntax and vocabulary, but I also have the ability to provide insight about cultural nuances regarding the culture which prove invaluable.

Portuguese

My undergraduate program required me to to take advanced Spanish and Portuguese classes. In 2010, I graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Hispanic Studies.

I was inducted into the National Hispanic Honor Society (Sigma Delta Pi) in 2009. Upon graduation I also received the Henry Salloch Prize, awarded to a student in recognition of academic achievement and personal commitment to the understanding of other cultures.
