About Patience

I spent a semester in Osaka studying at Kansai Gaidai when I was a junior in college, and loved every minute of it. It was hands-down the best experience of my life! I made sure to get back to Japan 10 years later, and served as tour guide/translator for my traveling partner who spoke no Japanese at all. In between my two trips to Japan, I worked at the University of Pennsylvania, and had the pleasure of being a language practice partner for two different Japanese exchange students. I have also kept in touch with my host family from my college study abroad home stay.

I have always loved the Japanese language, people, and culture. I'm currently teaching my niece how to speak Japanese, and would love to help you or someone you know as well. I have plenty of materials from my study of the language that I'll use to supplement conversational practice, including children's books, flashcards, and workbooks.

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.

English

English is my native language, and I was always a straight-A student in English and Creative Writing classes.

Microsoft Excel

I have 6+ years of experience in Microsoft Excel, including 2 years during which I designed and executed a training course for a small publishing firm who wanted their employees to be more adept at using the program. A later position required me to utilize complicated Excel spreadsheets for projects such as: to aggregate and analyze website search engine data, to distill survey data, and to examine classroom attendance.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have 6+ years of experience in Microsoft PowerPoint, including 2 years during which I designed and executed a training course for a small publishing firm who wanted their employees to be more adept at using the program. A later job involved creating highly complex presentations to be given by the Director of Marketing to the Dean of a Wharton's Executive Education program.
