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

Adobe Photoshop

I used to be a Production Assistant for comic books, and used Photoshop to edit images. I helped newer employees at that time navigate the tools they needed for the job. Available for beginner lessons!

Chinese

I come from a Chinese-American family and am proficient in oral communication in Mandarin. I went to Chinese school on the weekends where we used the Taiwanese zhuyin fuhao system for learning traditional Chinese characters. Later in high school and college, I learned the pinyin system. If you would like to learn elementary Chinese, I can help with sentence structure, pronunciation, and reading/writing.

English

I have taught for five years with the JET Programme as an Assistant Language Teacher (ALT).

ESL/ESOL

I taught English as an Assistant Language Teacher for 5 years in Japan.

Grammar

I took a TEFL course while teaching English abroad and grammar was one of the many topics that was covered. In teaching, I make my own worksheets for students to find the grammar mistakes. In my experience, using drills helps the most in teaching grammar.

Japanese

I studied the Japanese language for all four years of my undergraduate education and lived in Japan for five years. I have passed the JLPT Level 2.

Literature

I was a minor in English Literature at university and enjoyed reading classics very much during that time.

Microsoft Word

I have used Word since my elementary school days and still use it today for lessons. I am proficient in both the English and Japanese versions of Microsoft Word.

Proofreading

As an assistant language teacher for English in Japan, I had to read and mark essays and exams for my classes.

Reading

Aside from the fact that I enjoy reading, I taught English in Japan for 5 years. First year students in my school often read abridged versions of American and British classics. I used to prepare reading comprehension questions for these assignments.

TOEFL

I have helped Japanese students prepare for the TOEFL exam and other exams like it. On a more personal level, when my cousin from another country was studying for this exam, I was there to help him.

Vocabulary

I taught English in Japan for 5 years. Vocabulary lists were often used in my classes. I highly recommend flashcards for memorizing new words.

Approved Subjects

If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
