About Diallo

Hello! My name is Diallo, and I am available for online tutoring.

Since August 2016, I have been living in Japan and working as a Coordinator for International Relations through the JET Program. My primary responsibilities include translating tourism-related documents (both J>E and E>J), and interpreting for foreign visitors at official meetings. I have passed the N1, the highest level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, and scored a perfect score in the reading section. In 2014, I graduated from Yale with a B.A. in Linguistics. During my time as an undergrad, I worked as a Japanese tutor for Yale's Center for Language Study.

I am very passionate about foreign languages, and I love getting others excited about them as well. In addition to Japanese, I spent the 2015-2016 academic year studying Mandarin in Taipei, and the year before that studying Korean in Seoul. I also spent my junior spring studying abroad in Paris through a program called CUPA, where I was directly enrolled in a French university and completed my coursework entirely in French. As someone who has studied a variety of languages, I am able to draw upon my own experiences and study techniques to assist others in their foreign language acquisition.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 passed the N1, the highest level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, obtaining a perfect score in the reading section. In college, I was a Japanese language tutor for Yale’s Center for Language Study, providing individual lessons for beginning students.

Since August 2016, I have been living in Japan and working Coordinator for International Relations for the JET Program. Though my primary responsibilities are translation and interpretation, my job allows me to make use of my Japanese in various ways, ranging from radio interviews to presentations on American culture. I also have experience being tutored in Japanese, so I understand what the tutoring process is like from the perspective of the student.
