About Jesse Alvin

I am a recent college graduate majored in interdisciplinary studies with focuses in Japanese and Linguistics. I privately taught Japanese to beginner/intermediate college students and have knowledge of different speech styles such as casual talk, business (keigo), and linguistics. I have adopted several tutoring methods from top professors at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and Leeward Community College.

The most I love about tutoring is seeing fast, positive results from students either in school or at work. I find it fun to tutor students who are serious about second language learning, find it very difficult to learn another language, and/or seek out new hobbies in language learning.

I have completed college Japanese courses up to the Advanced level and have Customer service experience in Japanese linguistics.

Personal Practice:
I befriended Japanese exchange students for daily use and up-to-date practice and professionally worked as a Japanese speaking Sales Associate for 3 years.


Learning languages is difficult and time consuming, but this is only true if learning comes as an obligation and there's no sense of fun. My lessons are tailored to be interesting, fun, and practical. Since I also come from a student perspective, I also know the patience and support students need in order to be successful. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact me to learn more about my lessons and scheduling. I look forward in meeting with you.

Optional programs:
I use the following programs when sharing worksheets/practice sheets
Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Google Drive, Adobe Acrobat

Japanese

I'm a Graduate of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa in Interdisciplinary focused in Japanese and Linguistics.

I worked professional as a Japanese Customer Sales Representative for 3 years and currently working in the Hotel Industry here in Hawai'i.

Excellent Japanese language tutor — Jesse knows the Japanese language very well! He was very instrumental in helping my son review for his Final Exam. Jesse is articulate, patient & demonstrates excellent teaching skills. He gives great tips on remembering grammar skills and made sure my son felt confident on what was taught before moving on. I highly recommend Jesse to anyone needing support in learning Japanese! ...
