About Akihiko

Hello,

My name is Akihiko. If you are looking for a Japanese or math tutor in the Longmont area (Boulder, Loveland, Lafayette) here I am!

I am a mechanical engineer with math and aerospace minors who just graduated with honors from University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. I also have an associate's in business from Pikes Peak Community College. My GPA was 3.94. I won the Colorado Engineering Council Award, am a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and and was recognized by the National Society of Leadership and Success. I tutored college math (algebra and calculus) to several students when I was a student. I was also a Japanese conversation partner for several students. I believe everybody has a different learning style, so I adjust my teaching style as I get to know the student. I like it when students come up with their own questions or homework beforehand, so that we have specific items to focus on. When I don't know the answer right away, I will tell you I don't know, and then work to find the answer for you. I like to use a variety of resources.

I am a native speaker of Japanese. I have completed an ESL program so I understand how it feels to learn a foreign language well. I enjoy sharing not only the language but the culture. My lessons focus on more useful conversational Japanese than text book Japanese, but I am happy to address any class requirements. I understand most common issues Americans encounter because my wife is an American who lived in Japan for 4 years, and I have taught her Japanese.

I am available evenings and weekends.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Aki
