About Ayumi

I was born and raised in Japan, but perhaps mostly educated in America. After I graduated from college, I became a teacher at one of the public schools. We moved to Japan for my husband's job and lived there for seven years. NOW, I live in two pretty awesome different worlds without much difficulty, but it took a lot of time and effort to acquire two, unlike languages. If I can do it, you can.

I enjoy learning whatever it is. Learning enhances our lives in more than one way. I have experience teaching in a classroom setting as well as tutoring. In some way, teaching a group of students in a classroom setting is against my belief of best learning environment. I believe that personalized lessons are essential to enhance the student learning experience. There is also one very important factor of learning with your tutor.
You need to feel that you are very comfortable with your tutor and feel positive about yourself around him/her. In some way, "chemistry" between you and your tutor is more important than how knowledgeable your tutor is.

Having said that please ask a lot of questions via Wyzant email, if you are considering to hire me as your tutor. I will be happy to answer them.

Thank you for coming to my location. I am grad that you had a few points to take away from the session. I was very impressed with your communicative skill in Japanese! Good luck with your coming test and adventures in Japan this summer.

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.

Elementary Math

I have taken Precalculus Algebra class at college and earned A. I have also taken a few prealgebra and algebra courses at community college and got A's. I have an experience as a MATH tutor at the learning center on campus.

Japanese

I graduated from Arizona State University with B.A.S.E (Major: Japanese) and own CA state's certification. I have an extensive experience in teaching in a classroom as well as one-on-one tutoring.

Prealgebra

I have taken precalculus Algebra class at university and earned A. I have also taken a few prealgebra and algebra courses at community college and got A's. I have an experience as a MATH tutor at the learning center on campus.

Study Skills

I took a course to improve my reading skills at the community college in order to prepare for the heavy course work in college and university, which I earned my degrees. Since my major was in Curriculum and Instructions, I also learned how to identify individual students' learning style so that I can advise the best-fitted way of studying based on their learning styles, and done so during my teaching years. I have put every skill I learned in practice on my study and graduated from college and universities with good GPA.

I learned some grammar points and had a good review session. Ayumi san was able to explain somethings regarding particles and some basic JLPT 3 level grammar. A very thoughtful tutor.
