About Gregory

After taking a culture class about Japan in 1995 I became fascinated with learning the language. After two years studying Japanese, I moved to Japan to teach English. It was in Japan that I had my first opportunity to teach. It became my passion and decided to teach Japanese when I came back to America in 2000. I have been teaching Japanese in Garden City since 2002.

What I like about teaching Japanese is when I see students who initially thought they couldn't do it, become successful. It is because of their efforts that they overcome what at first looks difficult. Students who want to learn Japanese should know that there is an extra component to it (reading and writing kana) that other languages don't require.

I'm willing to enthusiastically teach you that extra component but you must be willing to put in that extra effort. I'm looking forward to helping you reach your goal of becoming a Japanese learner.

I would encourage students in the area to contact me for tutoring. I'm flexible in the summer; not so much during the school year. I am willing to work something out if you would like to continue studying Japanese with me after the summer is over.
