About Jeffrey

Hello!

I provide private Japanese tutoring up to the N2 (Advanced) level of Japanese. This includes N5 (Beginner) through N2 grammar and kanji as well as the basics such as hiragana, katakana, self-introductions, ordering in restaurants, asking for directions, conversation practice and much more. Whether you wish to develop a lifelong relationship with Japanese culture or simply to be able to get around easily on vacation there, I can help you accomplish your goal. I am a native English speaker and have taught students of all ages, from preschoolers to seniors. My degree is in International Relations and Japanese Studies, and I recently returned from living in Japan for over a year, where I attended a Japanese language school and studied translation theory with a private tutor. I also have interests in Japanese film, cuisine, architecture, music, and religion.

Japanese is a wonderful language that will enable you to explore one of the world's most beautiful countries, comprehend vast new amounts of media, and communicate with 130 million speakers worldwide. Its challenging nature will develop your cognitive abilities and provide a wonderful addition to any resume.

Contact me with your current Japanese level and any learning goals you may have, and we will draft a tentative schedule. I am professionally a translator, but I continue tutoring because I enjoy working with students, so my fee is kept below the average rate. My current rate is $35-50/hour depending on your needs and my travel expenses. I am conveniently located in Midtown and can meet with you most anywhere in the intown Atlanta area or we can discuss holding lessons over Skype. References available upon request.

I look forward to working with you. Let's study together!

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 have been studying Japanese since undergrad and recently returned from a year studying at a language school in Tokyo. I assisted fellow students and have tutored since I have returned. I am also vigorously pursuing a career in technical translation. I really enjoy working with Japanese learners of all ages and witnessing them solving the problems raised in learning such a new and challenging language.
