I have always had a passion for teaching children. Ever since I moved to the United States from Japan in 2010, I have been interested in bilingualism and how children maintain a balance when acquiring multiple languages. Since I am interested in early childhood education, I am mainly seeking to teach children interested in learning Japanese through fun games and activities. However, I am fully fluent in Japanese and English, and would be able to provide sufficient lessons for adults or advanced learners.
My tutoring experience started with school-aged children with mild learning disabilities (math, Japanese, and English). I know how frustrating it is for children to not be able to comprehend what they are learning. Instead of trying to teach a fully new concept, I like to help them expand the knowledge they have and help them apply their knowledge in solving more difficult problems. I currently teach Japanese to Japanese and English bilingual children. I try to make their learning experience fun and engaging by incorporating word games and story-telling etc. I am open for communication and I will adjust my teaching strategies to accommodate the student's individual needs.
What I find most rewarding is to see the progress my students make day by day. I love being involved in the process of my students' growth and helping them decipher all the wonders and questions they bring.
