About Masae

I am an experienced Japanese tutor certified in Japan as a junior and senior high school Japanese and English teacher. Having lived in both Japan and the USA, I have taught more than 20 years from preschool aged children to adults. I am familiar with a wide range of textbooks and teaching materials as well as methods and techniques.

Before moving to the USA in 1997, I worked for an international business college in Japan as a Japanese language instructor for international students in the bachelor's and master's degree programs. I also taught expatriate employees from the USA at Japanese language training classes of Intel Corporation Japan.

After moving to the USA, I taught both school aged children and adults. More specifically, between 2004 and 2006, I was a chief instructor of 3-week Japanese summer programs offered by a Japanese boarding high school in Tennessee. I also taught Japanese writing and reading to Japanese high school students in the East Tennessee area.

Since 2008, I have tutored both Japanese native students and Americans learning Japanese as a second language. Different levels and needs included in the tutoring were: Japanese writing and reading for college preparation, Japanese language art for high school entrance examinations, Japanese for AP/SAT examinations, reinforcement lessons for high school/college Japanese classes, and Japanese general/business conversation.

I specialize in teaching Americans to speak more authentic Japanese. With my background including professional experience and academic knowledge as an English teacher in Japan, I have also taught TOEFL/SAT essay writing and English grammar since 2008.

When I privately tutor a student, I discuss needs and expectations before starting and set a long-term goal with short term objectives. I try to make my instructions fun and motivating for my student by using teaching tools and methods to my student's learning style and preferences. With my school psychology background, I am a good listener and flexible to each student's abilities.

I try to be flexible with time. While I have a 12-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes.

I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you improve your Japanese language skills.
