About Mayumi

uring my graduate school days, I was awarded a T.A. (teaching assistant) position in teaching beginning and intermediate level Japanese classes. After receiving my master's degree in linguistics, I continued my Japanese teaching at various colleges. I have teaching materials I have collected from my previous teaching, which I will use for tutoring after revising it to fit the student's individual needs.

I have been teaching Japanese off and on for the last 20 years, mostly at a college-level, and in some private tutoring settings. I am a native Japanese and have lived half of my life in Japan and another in the U.S. I moved back to Colorado after living in Japan for the last seven years.

I know many students get interested in learning Japanese, however, it is not an easy language to acquire. Depending on the expectation of student's acquisition goal, I will provide an individual lesson plan that suits student's needs. The language learning can be very exciting - whether you want to learn Japanese for business or for your own betterment, I will be happy to work with you and will make each lesson fun and exciting.

Not only am I a native Japanese but also a mother of a bilingual high-school-age child - bilingual in English and Japanese. Having lived in two countries, I know both cultures well enough to make my tutoring sessions more effective and also fun. I have studied linguistics at CU-Boulder and it has been my passion to help students acquire my native language, Japanese.

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.

Japanese

I was born and raised in Japan for the first 20 years of my life, thus Japanese is my first language. My command of English is also very good since I received my bachelor's and master's degrees in the United States. During my graduate school days, I was awarded a T.A. (teaching assistant) position in teaching beginning and intermediate level Japanese classes. After receiving my master's degree in linguistics, I continued my Japanese teaching at various colleges.
