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

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.

MATLAB

I have used MATLAB for my mechanical engineering degree. I also use MATLAB daily for my work. For example, importing data from FEM and process it with MATLAB. I tutored college math (algebra and calculus) to several students when I was a student.

I really enjoyed my session with Aki. I found the materials he brought really useful and helpful for gauging my level of Japanese ability, and it was a pleasant experience overall. Thank you Aki for going the extra mile and compiling materials for our lesson and for being a great tutor! I can't wait for more lessons!
