University of San Francisco (Japanese)
My name is Jesse B., and I'm a Japanese Major student at the University of San Francisco. I'm a native english speaker in my third year of studying Japanese language and culture.
Are you a beginning Japanese student struggling to keep up with the heavy workload? Does it feel like there are too many new concepts being thrown at you to grasp? Then you've come to the right place! I understand what it's like coming into Japanese for the first time and feeling very lost. The biggest mistake I see holding people back from doing well in a language class is not asking questions. Japanese always builds on itself; if you don't understand a new concept you won't understand those to come. I know that students do their best when they are comfortable with talking to their instructor. That's what I'm providing one-on-one either at a local coffee shop or the comfort of your own home.
I offer assistance with:
-Quiz and exam study sessions
-And whatever else you may struggle with.
I'm familiar with the "Genki" series of textbooks, so if your teacher uses those we have an advantage. If asked, I will prepare take home lessons to be worked on in between sessions to help reinforce the topics. But I understand that you may be struggling under the assignments already on your plate, in which case any work we do can carry over to the next session. What's more important is that you be willing to practice what we do on your own time and not wait until we next meet to open your book. Repetition is absolutely the key to learning Japanese.
I'm also not expecting you to have a certain level of comprehension. You may be struggling with just the current material or have been falling behind since the beginning. What's more important to have is a good sense of fun! I really enjoy this language and I'm here to help you enjoy it too.
I am open to working with:
-High school students
-First or second year college students
-Anyone at a beginner level
If you're looking to master Japanese conversation, you may want to find a certified native speaker. What I'm offering is peer review without the intimidating prospect of going up against a professional. I'm also not available to teach you from the ground up. If you're looking for complete lessons to supplement taking a course, I'm afraid I can't help you.
Success in a Japanese class is completely possible. If you're willing to put in the time, I can guarantee you'll see improvements in both your grade and your comprehension.
I hope to meet you soon! My name is Jesse B., and I'm a Japanese Major student at the University of San Francisco. I'm a native english speaker in my third year of studying Japanese language and
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.
