About Katherine

I have a BA and MA in Japanese, and my background includes linguistics and language pedagogy. I have experience teaching language to students of all ages, from kindergarteners to retirees, and I have taught Japanese at the college level. I have passed the highest level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (near-native), and in my main profession I communicate in Japanese on a daily basis.

As a non-native speaker, I believe I have a lot to offer the beginning Japanese student. I understand what it is like to learn Japanese from scratch, and I can provide clear instruction on grammatical points and cultural differences. This is something that my past students have told me they appreciate.

Most of all, I enjoy coming up with new ways to help people understand and enjoy Japanese. I am available for self-study support, homework help, and targeted elementary instruction.
