Hello. Nice to meet you! Japanese language
is my passion and teaching Japanese allows me to share my love of this language with others. I have almost 7 years of Japanese language experience and I have been teaching Japanese for the past 3 years. I have 3 Japanese language certifications (JLPT) and I am pursuing 2 more. My teaching includes: on-site corporate Japanese language training for groups, small classes and I also do one-on-one private lessons for individuals.
My students all receive a comprehensive learning package: Reading
and Speaking. I teach the Japanese kana (their syllabary which works like an alphabet) from the very start. Once that is solid, we move onto actual Japanese characters (kanji), grammar
, pronunciation and conversation. We use an excellent textbook that my students have been quite pleased with. This textbook has the distinction of being the only Japanese textbook in the United States that is also used by native Japanese students in Japan. And I even incorporate Japanese children's books, comics (manga), video games and phone apps as a way to engage my students and get them excited for Japanese!
So, why sign up with me? My philosophy
is that Beginners need somebody who can teach them the very basics and truly explain Japanese language concepts in English
, thus creating a bridge from English to Japanese. Knowing the language of the student is the key to teaching.
I am also flexible with my teaching schedule and can accommodate students when they need to move a lesson to a different time because of school, work or family obligations. Make-up classes policy: in special circumstances, students who go away for the week for either vacation or another personal reason can potentially be eligible to have a Skype session. But please keep in mind that a weekly or biweekly in-person commitment is mandatory for my class. This is for both legal reasons and because teaching tends to be more effective in-person.
Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to working with you!

These questions are classic. They are a variant on the Two Cars Algebra problem. Just remember this formula: Distance = Velocity * Time
Step 1) Plug in the numbers and put an "N" for your unknown variable: 900 = N * 16
Step 2) Do the easy math (PEMDAS) first: 900 = 16N
Step 3) Solve for "N" by...
