About Tori

Japanese is FUN!

I enjoy helping learners and giving them advice whether they are able to take regular lessons or not. So please contact me!
I am here to help as much or as little as you need: whether its an infrequent lesson to supplement self-study, a one time lesson for specific advice and a point in the right direction, or an email with questions about Japanese and Japanese learning resources.

I am a non-Japanese, Japanese tutor.
Having learned the language myself I can give you insight into the language and learning it that a native Japanese speaker cannot. I have been in your shoes, have been where you want to go, and can help you get there.

I took four years of Japanese in High School (my senior class was taught by a non-Japanese Japanese teacher, my best Japanese teacher ever) and passed the AP Japanese test. I took Japanese at University of Miami and went on student exchange for one year to Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan. I transferred to Sophia University and graduated from there with a bachelors in International Business. While there I took their intensive Japanese and Advanced Japanese courses, and then took a portion of my regular coursework in Japanese.

My tutoring experience started with 1.5 years tutoring English in Tokyo. Currently I teach Japanese part-time to high school students at a small private school called "Space of Mind" in Delray Beach. My day job is still Web Development but my fun job is tutoring Japanese! :-)

In 2012 I took a seminar in Texas for Accelerated Language Teaching Methods that covered the methods used by the Canadian Institute of English (CIE). I use these methods (including Audio-lingual method & Total Physical Response) in my LIVELY tutoring sessions. I play Jazz saxophone (gave lessons/played a few live gigs in Tokyo), so I love audio learning methods.

If you are interested in group lessons I have made arrangements with Lingua center at Broward College and they have kindly granted the use of their rooms for group tutoring.

Also during the summer, in connection with the JapanTree Kanji Method, I am doing a “Kanji Camp” program. Its a week-long tutoring session at a heavily discounted rate. The Camp teaches students to write and recognize the meaning of Japanese kanji. The method is an adaptation of the book "Remembering the Kanji" (Heisig).

Whatever form they take, I hope you enjoy your Japanese studies!
And I look forward to teaching you how to learn Japanese and go to Japan!

Yoroshiku!
