About Kayoko

Dear Prospective Students,

I am interested in teaching Japanese, its culture, and sharing my cross-cultural communications experience with you. For my class, I use language immersion program approach and try to use only Japanese as much as possible. For grammar lessons such as verb conjugation and particles, I use text books, "Japanese for Busy People", but the emphasis is on improving students' speaking ability. I also help students prepare for JLPT test, edit articles in Japanese, and get ready for their business trips to Japan.

I graduated from Columbia University with an MA, and took a Japanese Language Pedagy course over there. I have been teaching Japanese at two language schools for several years after I worked for the World Bank in Washington DC. The class is held a few minutes walk away from the Bethesda Metro station. There is a parking lot nearby.

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 taught Japanese immersion program and conversation classes at Berlitz. I also have teaching experience at community colleges in Texas and two graduate schools in Japan. I graduated from Teachers College, Columbia University (MA), Southern Methodist University (MFA), and Sophia University, Tokyo, Japan (BA).

Great Tailored Instruction — Kayoko does a great job critiquing my pronunciation and teaching at my pace. She brings in extra Japanese language materials to augment the textbook. I'm learning Japanese from scratch and am thrilled with her patience and teaching style. ...
