I'm bilingual in Japanese and English. I am qualified to teach both languages. I grew up in Japan and moved to Canton, Georgia in 2007. I received my certification as a Japanese language tutor from the Human Academy in 2005. I graduated with a degree in English, American literature, and education from Tohoku Gakuin University - also in Sendai, Japan.
I know studying a foreign language can be very challenging, but at the same time, it can also be a lot of fun!
I overcame many problems when I first studied English as a student myself in Japan.
I have taught very advanced students who are currently enrolled at the University of Georgia and Georgia State University, high school students, businessmen in their 50's and children as young as five years old.
I love to teach Japanese and I would welcome the opportunity to help you learn a very beautiful and interesting language with a long and culturally rich background.
I also teach students using Skype - the FREE internet video conferencing service over the internet. I'm bilingual in Japanese and English. I am qualified to teach both languages. I grew up in Japan and moved to Canton, Georgia in 2007. I received my certification as a Japanese Read more
Mika San is a wonderful tutor! She is easy to reach and quick to respond. We fell into ease of conversation right away! Just love her! I am learning quite fast with her! She teaches very well and consistent. Domo arigatou gozaimasu Mika San!
Mika is awesome! She is very clear and easy to understand. My Japanese level is relatively low but she is very patient and has catered lesson materials to my level that have been very beneficial to my learning process.
Great first lesson! I loved the fact that Mika was patient and allowed me to work through remembering how to read Kanji. She came prepared with lesson materials based on what I need to learn, and I learned a lot of new things about keigo. I look forward to continued studies.
We are sad to say that this was the last lesson with Mika because our daughter is going off to college. It feels as if Mika has become one of our family and we'll miss seeing her every week! Mika is a wonderful tutor and person! We feel blessed to have found WyzAnt and Mika for our daughter! Mika is always very punctual and very polite. You can't go wrong with having Mika as a tutor!
I loved having Mika-Sensei as my tutor for the summer. I take Japanese classes at Georgia State University, but even going through these classes, and getting help from the teacher and other students I still have many questions when it comes to Japanese. Mika-Sensei not only helped me out with Japanese, but I can say that many times she went the extra mile. She goes very in-depth in each lesson and she takes her time to explain something to make sure you completely understand. She is also a very nice person and her positive attitude/personality really comes out in her teaching. If you ever need help in Japanese at any level (from completely novice to intermediate level of the language), she can definitely help you out. I will definitely continue having Mika as my tutor as soon as I get more free time with my own schedule and if anyone else needs help/wants to learn Japanese I definitely recommend them to go to her also.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I'd like to be certified in this subject because I'm Japanese.
My first language is Japanese and my english skill is very high.
I can communicate my student Japanese and English either way.
And I went to Japanese Language School to study how to teach Japanese.
I graduated from school and I have a certificate as a Japanese teacher. I have some Japanese text books for student and manuals how to teach Japanese language. I am ready to teach!!
I love teaching Japanese to foreign student. My student must be enjoy studying Japanese and Japanese culture.
