About Kyle

Hello! I am a native of Columbus, Ohio where my Japanese journey began over 10 years ago when I was in college at Ohio State University. I spent a year studying abroad at a Japanese university and returned to Japan after graduation where I taught English for two years on the JET Programme. I moved closer to Tokyo after that and taught second grade elementary at an international school.

On top of my experience as a teacher in a classroom setting, I have many years of experience as a one-on-one tutor. In Ohio, I tutored the children of Japanese employees of Honda for two years. While I lived in Japan, I tutored many Japanese in English outside of my full-time job.

I developed a highly fluent level of conversational Japanese from my time in Japan. I passed the N2 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test in 2009. From the fall of 2013, I taught Japanese for the Global Language Network (GLN) for two years. During my time at GLN, I taught one class per week of both beginner and intermediate level Japanese.

While not a native speaker of Japanese, my pronunciation and knowledge of the language are excellent, and as an experienced educator and learner of Japanese, I can provide students with a unique insight into the language and anticipate their educational needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 hold a B.A. in Japanese from Ohio State University where I studied Japanese for three years, including a full year at the University of Tsukuba in Ibaraki, Japan. I worked in a Japanese elementary and middle school for two years where 100% of my colleagues and students were Japanese. I passed the N2 (second-highest) level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test in December 2009. I taught beginner and intermediate level Japanese for the Global Language Network for over two years between 2013 and 2015.
