Hello - I am a graduate student at UNC Charlotte who graduated with a B.A. in Japanese from UNC Chapel Hill. I thoroughly enjoy learning, speaking, an teaching Japanese to all people. If you are struggling with Japanese homework or exams, or are just looking to learn Japanese in your spare time, please consider me as your tutor.
I studied at Kanda University of International Studies in Tokyo, Japan in 2009 and have gained advanced understandings of Japanese language, grammar, and vocabulary. I continuously seek to keep up-to-date with my language ability by conversing frequently with native Japanese friends in the area and at UNCC.
I like to teach depending on what the student is looking to learn; however, learning to write in Hiragana and Katakana are basic skills needed to continue learning the language. I find that the "Genki 1 and Genki 2" textbooks are most helpful, but other beginner-intermediate textbooks are also great tools in learning Japanese. I can place more emphasis on speaking or reading/writing depending on the student's interests. I also have a good understanding of Japanese etiquette, manners, and cultural nuances that would be extremely useful for anyone travelling or studying in Japan.
Thank you for reading about me and I hope to hear from you soon!
