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.

Enjoyable and useful lesson

Aki has clearly put some time and effort into putting together study materials to suit my needs. He made our lesson very interesting and focused on teaching me things that will be most useful for my upcoming trip to Hokkaido, e.g. how to make sure my rental car has 4WD :)
