About Bobby

I have always had a passion for teaching, tutoring and training. I tutored Math and Japanese during my high school years and when I served in the US Army. I held study groups as well as private one on one lessons. I feel that the best way of tutoring or teaching is by understanding the students level of comprehension and how they retain information and building from there. I believe there is no systematic way for someone to learn, as learning is based on a case by case basis. Everyone learns at a different rate and in a different way.

Math has always been my strongest subject. I have tutored Math at different levels and students have noticed the difference in their grades and how they comprehend and tackle problems. My goal is to help you understand and challenge you, not to overwhelm you.

I graduated from San Francisco Japanese Language School, elementary through high school.
Every year during my summer vacation, I went to Japan to enroll in school there for 2 months. (Schools in Japan run from April to March) This continued through high school.

I have travelled to Japan on numerous occasions for school, vacation and business. I worked for a Japanese company for many years, so I have experience with the business culture of Japanese as well.

Being a first generation Japanese American, I understand the struggles people experience when first trying to learn the language. (My parents only spoke Japanese, but all my friends spoke English)

I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up classes.

Your comfort is my number one priority, so I will teach at a location that is most convenient for you.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.
