About Nob

I am a native Japanese from Kansai (Osaka-Kobe) in Japan.

I am a engineering science guy and have B.S. and M.S. degrees from Osaka Univ. and Kobe Univ.
I like listening to music and doing research by Internet.
I like communication with good American people and helping them to learn Japanese.

As a tutor, I am patient.
When I tutor Japanese for the student who learns complete Japanese, I will teach Japanese as in the part A below. When I tutor Japanese for the student who learns conversational only, I will teach Japanese as in the part B below.

Part A:
Start teaching Japanese by using the Japanese course book "GENKI" as a guide or separately sharing the subject of student's interest in any Japanese matter. I have good communication method to do so for Kanji, Hiragana, grammar. I will do research, if it is necessary. ( For the kids, I use the Japanese course book "YASASHII NIHONGO , Introductory Japanese, Elementary Japanese". I also use slightly different teaching method based on Hiragana alphabet which is closely consistent with the text book.)

Introductory example: "Watashi No Hon" in Japanese. "Watashi" means "I" in English. "Hon" means "book" in English. "No" is the glue to combine Kanji and specifically possessive glue. It combines "I" with "book" in possessive manner. Therefore, "Watashi No Hon" means "My book".

"Kare" means "He". "Kuruma" means "car". you would know how to say "His car" in Japanese.
The answer is "Kare No Kuruma".

I also teach words of Hiragana, Kanji and numbers.
Previously mentioned method that I have developed plays vital role. I help you to build your vocabulary of Hiragana and Kanji ( stroke, pronunciation, meaning ). Romaji pays important role in my tutoring process.

Part B:
If student needs only to learn conversational Japanese, I use mainly Romaji.
Student would only need to understand meaning of Kanji, Hirakana and katakana written as
Romaji words and the sentence written in all Romaji. I provide the sentence where all words are written in Romaji. I explain each Romaji in the sentence for grammar.

I also provide good resource for student for translating from English word or phrase to Japanese word or phrase and vice versa.
