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.

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.
