About Setsuko

I have a lot of experiences of teaching both in Japan and the U.S. I taught English to Japanese children and adults in Japan, and after I moved to the U.S. About 30 years ago, I taught Japanese privately, and worked at preschool and elementary schools. I hope to teach Japanese to anybody who is interested to learn. I would also like to share Japanese cultural knowledge as I grew up in Japan. I can teach some artworks such as origami in addition to teaching language.

I am looking for some students who want to learn Japanese this summer. If you can come to my house in Rancho Santa Margarita, I can show some Japanese TV programs as a part of lesson. I subscribe to TV Japan, and their programs have mostly no English subtitles, so it would be a very practical Japanese practice. Of course, I will help you to understand some part. I will choose only appropriate programs. Please join me studying Japanese this summer! My time will be pretty flexible during summer. Thank you.

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 (K-6th)

I have experienced working for elementary students in the classrooms. I can teach any subject and I prefer lower graders. I can work for study skills and homework help. I will use workbooks and other fun methods to make students interested in studying.
I was a lead teacher for K- Plus program which was in YMCA before and after school care. I made lesson plans and gave an enrichment program for kindergarten students before they went to school every morning. I taught English reading and writing with various skills such as phonics and ryming words. I also taught them Japanese and French in basic levels as extra skills. They seemed to enjoy learning.

Handwriting

I can teach handwriting to elementary students, as I have experienced teaching that category. I have also experienced teaching handwriting to preschoolers. I can teach cursive skills.
I can also teach writing skills to any age group. I have experienced to teach to high school students writing skills including grammar and composition.

Japanese

I am a native Japanese, and I have been living in U.S. for almost 30 years. I have taught English to both children and adults in Japan, and I have taught Japanese to adults in U.S. Privately. My main job here has been working at preschools and elementary schools as an instructional assistant. I love to teach Japanese to anybody who is interested to learn. I also teach Japanese culture. I can teach some artwork such as origami in addition to language.
