About Brittany

I have always been passionate about learning, and that is why I would like to tutor and teach. I have experience working at two different summer camps, one teaching Japanese in America and one teaching English in Japan! I have informally tutored students throughout my life as a college student.

What I love most about tutoring is either the "A-HA!" moment when you make a breakthrough, or when I invariably learn something from the student. Sometimes it's an interest they have that I've never looked into, sometimes it's a new way of looking at a problem. Either way, it's something I enjoy!

For Japanese: I have been learning Japanese for a long time and have spent, all together, about a year in Japan. I love the language and have both learned in a formal setting and taught myself. I have navigated Japan alone and stayed with Japanese families. To give you an idea of my ability, I have recently passed the JLPT N2.

I think learning a language should be about having fun, so I would be willing to find and plan lessons that revolve around whatever the student enjoys. If they like trains - let's learn about trains in Japanese! If they like music - let's find some Japanese songs!

For English: I have been an avid reader since I was a little girl. Stories are my passion, and I love creating them and discussing them! My major in school was English with an emphasis in Creative Writing.

I am willing to tutor online via Skype and have a pretty open schedule. Please contact me with any questions you may have!
