About Madeline q

I am a Japanese language major and university graduate with a passion for languages and understanding of Japanese up to the intermediate 400 college level. As of now I aspire to study abroad in improve my fluency, and am considering a career as a translator or language teacher.

As an adolescent, translating Japanese to English was a source of enjoyment and a hobby I still practice. I attended four years of college-level Japanese language courses and attended a Japanese-English conversation club. Two years ago, I volunteered for a 3-hour Japanese language Corpus Research Project which tested my knowledge of reading, writing, listening and speaking.

My tutoring experience is as follows: I conducted many study groups with other JPN language students for the purpose of understanding course material better. During my senior year I tutored basic Japanese grammar, reading, and writing to students looking to improve their Japanese ability. For each lesson I incorporated and organized helpful information from my textbooks. I also used detailed explanations to bring students to a deeper understanding of the learning material. Last, I am familiar with various electronic and academic resources to aid in studying Kanji, Japanese grammar and vocabulary.

Given my goals, academics and professional experience, I have developed the necessary qualifications to aid students in learning many aspects of the Japanese language.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Japanese

I attended three years of language courses relevant to my major and joined a Japanese language conversation club (2011-present). I conducted interview with a native Japanese professor and formulated an essay based on her experiences in the U.S. (Spring 2012). I volunteered for a 3-hour Japanese language Corpus Research Project which tested my knowledge of reading, writing, listening and speaking (Spring 2013). I conducted study groups with other Japanese language students with the purpose of understanding course material better (2011 - 2013). I advertised services at my university and tutored basic Japanese grammar, reading, and writing to another student. I incorporated and organized important information from many textbooks and made use of detailed explanations in order to ensure a deeper understanding of the subject material (Fall & Winter 2013). I am familiar with various electronic and academic resources to aid in studying Kanji, Japanese grammar and vocabulary.

Violin

I have received more than eight years of private and formal violin education. I participated in regionals performances and recitals during that time. For a year I tutored beginning violin and taught myself to transcribe music. I also auditioned and played with the Chandler Symphony Orchestra for a year.
