About Patience


Bio

Hello! I'm Patience, and I'm excited to help you learn Japanese!

My journey to learning Japanese was accidental, but one I'm so grateful for having. Some of the best, and most rewarding experiences can come unexpectedly. I chose to take a college Japanese class rather than repeat a year of French, and the rest is history. I ended up studying abroad in Osaka, and loved every minute of it. It was hands-down the best experience of my life!

Hello! I'm Patience, and I'm excited to help you learn Japanese!

My journey to learning Japanese was accidental, but one I'm so grateful for having. Some of the best, and most rewarding experiences can come unexpectedly. I chose to take a college Japanese class rather than repeat a year of French, and the rest is history. I ended up studying abroad in Osaka, and loved every minute of it. It was hands-down the best experience of my life!

I have been back to Japan twice, both times serving as tour guide/translator for my traveling companions. In between my 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 am most adept at speaking, listening, and grammar (conversational is my thing!). I am also able to read and write kanji and have some tricks up my sleeve on how to remember them. I have several favorite textbooks that I use to guide my lessons, but am happy to follow one of your choosing as well. My goal is to keep lessons interesting, so I'll introduce different activities throughout our lessons to aid in comprehension and retention.

Good first Lesson!

My daughter enjoyed the lesson and is looking forward to learning more.

Nicole , 6 lessons with Patience

Knowledgeable and patient

What I really like about Patience is that she tailors the lessons to where I am in my quest to learn Japanese. She is well-prepared and adaptable to my needs. In only two lessons so far, she has really cleared up some things that I had been confused about from prior study and also taught material that was new to me. She is super-organized and lives up to her name.

First lesson was perfect

My daughter was very nervous and excited to start her Japanese lessons. Patience made her feel comfortable plus the lesson was fun! She cannot wait to keep learning.
