About Kiyoto

Hello! I am a Japanese language teaching assistant at the college level and have tutored English while in Japan.

Growing up, my father spoke to me in Japanese while my mother in English; I was often the translator. I have attended public school in both Japan and the U.S. It taught me something about communication that eventually became a dogma in my lessons. A teacher is a communicator that engages in how students understand concepts.

Though lessons vary by person, I always focus on the interaction with students. To practice in a group, we walk through the purpose of the lessons and do a brief, fast paced review of the material. Then I present problems to apply the material in forms like conversations, activities, and practice sheets. Some activities are hurried while others are relaxed. Eventually we exercise speaking, writing, grammar, and conversation in all sessions. I promise, it's fun but we get work done.

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 lived most of my life in Yokohama, Japan. I am a Japanese teaching assistant in Kalamazoo College. In previous years, I privately taught both Japanese to English speakers and English to Japanese speakers.
