About Scott

Hi I'm Scott I'm originally from San Diego, California but have come to Denver, Colorado to pursue education at the University of Denver. Currently I am a junior working on an International Studies and Asian Studies double major with a Japanese Language minor.

I'm very passionate about Japanese Language and hope to become a language teacher at the secondary or post secondary level. I believe that this is an important language that will offer people many opportunities as ability in this language in America is somewhat uncommon. Even if you're only learning casually as a hobby, I'm sure it will be a rewarding experience.

I have taken three years of formal Japanese instruction at the university level.

I spent a semester studying abroad in rural Japan where I continued classroom studies but was forced to use the language in daily life outside of school with native speakers.

I do not have much tutoring specific experience, however I have approximately 200 hours of classroom teaching experience (roughly half Japanese Language and half English Language).

In the 2015 Colorado and Wyoming state wide "Japan Cup" my universities team of three (of which I was one) came in second place. The Japan Cup is a language competition in which various language skills are tested in an academic decathlon style competition between other colleges.

My area GPA for Japanese Language is a 4.0 as of Winter Quarter of 2016 (my junior year).

I hope to hear from you soon! I am not overly experienced in tutoring (though I do have some) however I am very excited to help people learn this great language. Few things are more rewarding than seeing people learn. Unfortunately I do not have a car so my range is limited based on Denver light rail and bus systems however I am also open to (and usually will even prefer) online tutoring.
