Personal Introduction:
Hi, I'm Alexa! I've been learning, teaching, and translating Japanese for over ten years. I graduated magna cum laude from Emory University in Atlanta, GA with a major in East Asian Studies and spent my junior year abroad in Kyoto, Japan, studying Japanese language and culture from several phenomenal teachers. Through my years of study and dedication, I obtained JLPT N2 certification and went on from university to teach high school Japanese myself. I currently work as a Japanese-English technical translator at a major Japanese company and a contracted manga translator, which involves not only being bilingual in Japanese, but also a deep knowledge of English to proofread our translations and ensure they have flawless grammar, spelling, and punctuation. In my free time, I love to read and play board games!
Would you like to study from the basics of Japanese to become fluent one day? Would you like to proudly turn in your perfect essay? Let's get started!

Tutoring:
My approach to tutoring is based in thoroughness—understanding the structure of a sentence is more important than memorizing certain phrases so that you can build sentences on your own with the plethora of grammar, vocabulary, and nuances language has to offer. I will not only guide you during the lesson but will provide you with the tools you need to study on your own. My Japanese lessons are all paired with grammar and vocabulary lists from either textbooks or well-known and acclaimed lists, such as the JLPT, so that students can reinforce their knowledge after lessons and access practice questions. All proofreading lessons will include explanations for my suggested edits (although the student will have the final say, of course) to enable students to go forth with new knowledge to inform their writing decisions in the future.
I have taught all ages—from students in preschool to students in their 90s—and am well-equipped to tutor all learning styles. Some people learn best with visual aids and others prefer speaking and listeni

Friendly and Knowledgeable Tutor

So far, I have had 2 lessons with Alexa. I'm starting as a complete beginner and they are doing a very good time explaining concepts in a way that I can understand. If I have any questions during or after the lesson is it very obvious that they are more than happy to help. They are an amazing tutor and I highly recommend them!

John, 2 lessons with Alexa

Alexa understands and is fluent in Japanese. She has lived in Japan, and can answer my questions about Japanese culture and customs.

Alexa is helping me with both the English and Japanese dialogue in the novel I am writing. I received many insights and good examples of how I could make my dialogue more realistic.

Fantastic Tutor

She once again helped me with exactly what I needed help and then taught me a few extra things. I appreciate her actually listening.
