About Kathy

I have been teaching Japanese and Chinese for more than 15 years, and my students are all from different background and age groups. They can be from 5 years to 70 years old. I have a master's degree in Asian cultural and language study, and I like to update my teaching method in order to satisfy vary students' need. For some students, I can manage my teaching approach for those who likes learning language by watching anime, singing a song, listening to the music, writing some "kanji", or start from comprehension of foreigner's "customs."

I always tell my students that to master one foreign language in an efficient way, they should find out their own unique way to experience the particular journey of learning language. Every student is different, so having your own way to go through will help students to save their time, energy and money because your favorite way is the most efficient way for your now. You will be able to feel pressure-free, comfortable, happier and confident.

I am very excited about teaching new students through this window. Than you for your time and please feel free to contact me when you are ready.

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.

Chinese

I used to be a high school teacher to teach students Chinese and Asian history for a long time.

Japanese

I came from Japan, and I have been teacher for about 20 years. My students can be of varying age groups and I can be flexible with my teaching method because I know it would make sense to figure out what is the best way for helping individuals as every student has his or her own learning style. Often times, my approach makes my students feel comfortable and happy to learn Asian language. Indeed, they are all willing to be challenged by the Japanese language! As a teacher, it is the best moment for me to see that.
