Shigeko san reviewed what I had learned from my previous Japanese Instructor.
I was very impressed that she, in a very short amount of time, was able to determine how I will need to study on my own and where I will need to start with the textbook I own and used in my previous lessons. I am even more excited about studying Nihongo since I will be learning from Shigeko.
She said I need to work on Katakana. She said that whenever I spell native words that I should also spell it out in Katakana. My Katakana is already improving.
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.
