About Shennan

Because of the drastic differences between Japanese and English, learning Japanese or English can certainly be frustrating and definitely requires a lot of patience. The bright side is, once you learn the pattern and structure, that it becomes much easier to learn. It will be a great joy for me if I can help you get to that point.

I am a native speaker of Japanese and English. I also worked as a Japanese tutor for 4 years during college and an ESL tutor on Wyzant for one year. So, I understand that "this is just how it is; memorize it" type of explanation is not helpful at all. Whatever your level is currently, I believe I can work with you to fully grasp the language.

If a tutoring session needs to be canceled for any reason, please notify me at least 24 hours in advance. The lessons will be held in a public area, such as a cafe or a library. I am also available through the WyzAnt online platform.

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 4 years experience tutoring and teaching Japanese in a university and 2+ years of translation experience. I am available for one-on-one or group tutoring and am flexible concerning learning methods.
