Hello, my name is Ryoko. I'm from Japan. I completed the NAFL Japanese Language Instructors Qualification Course. I love to teach Nihongo (Japanese language) for foreigners and Japanese kids, for all levels. For the learners who are struggling to pass the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) or BJT (Business Japanese Proficiency Test) as well.

After I graduated Japanese graduate school, I worked for Japanese biggest advertising company for 5 years, and a global news company for 3 years as a advertising/media marketing director. I'm knowledgeable about Japanese business affairs and traditional culture, modern culture, and subculture (Anime, music, etc.) because I had clients in a great variety of industries.

I am also certified Japanese governmental social education programs, and can teach sports/fitness and music for kids. I can help kids who need to go back to school in Japan too. I currently teach from 5 to 45 years old students. I may discount your hourly rate if I don't have to travel over 20 miles. In addition, my hourly rate includes your study materials costs. I customize textbooks, hand-outs, writing practice workbooks etc... for each student's level and interest.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

*update* I'm available to teach in Charleston area till the end of Summer of 2015.
