Hello,

My name is Shinsuke and I am a native Japanese. I have been in this country for 12 years and graduated from the University of Arizona. After my graduation I was fortunate to secure a position as a teacher at a private language school in Tucson, Arizona, and then as Adjunct Professor at Pima Community College. I held my position as an adjunct faculty member teaching Japanese for 4 years and received very positive reviews every semester. In addition I continued teaching private lessons, and taught 2 students for over 5 years.

My teaching philosophy is based on respect for the students. I believe it is crucial for the teacher to believe in the student's ability and to encourage them in their studies.

I strongly believe that repetition is key to learning a new language and try impress this fact on students while retaining a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I also encourage my students to travel to Japan to experience immersion in the language and culture. To date I have taught over 500 students and several of them were accepted into Japanese University Study Abroad programs.

I have the experience and aptitude for creating a positive learning environment where students are challenged while enjoying the class.
I look forward to hearing from you to discuss this opportunity further.

Thank you,
Shinsuke

Amazing tutor! — Shinsuke is a great teacher! I started seeing him after I received a low grade on a Japanese test, but within weeks of seeing him I was getting A's on every test. He's very patient and time effective. Every time I leave a session I feel that much more confident in my Japanese. Overall he's a cool guy and makes it easy to learn. ...
