My name is Shinsuke and I am a native Japanese. I have been in this country for 12 years and graduated from the University of Arizona. After my graduation I was fortunate to secure a position as a teacher at a private language school in Tucson, Arizona, and then as Adjunct Professor at Pima Community College. I held my position as an adjunct faculty member teaching Japanese for 4 years and received very positive reviews every semester. In addition I continued teaching private lessons, and taught 2 students for over 5 years.
My teaching philosophy is based on respect for the students. I believe it is crucial for the teacher to believe in the student's ability and to encourage them in their studies.
I strongly believe that repetition is key to learning a new language and try impress this fact on students while retaining a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I also encourage my students to travel to Japan to experience immersion in the language and culture. To date I have taught over 500 students and several of them were accepted into Japanese University Study Abroad programs.
I have the experience and aptitude for creating a positive learning environment where students are challenged while enjoying the class.
I look forward to hearing from you to discuss this opportunity further.

Best Japanese Teacher I've Ever Had!
Shinsuke is both an exemplary teacher and a compassionate friend. His knowledge of the Japanese language and culture has and still does exceed all my expectations. Regardless of your struggle, Shinsuke's patience is never compromised. If fluency is your goal, look no further. I would rate him even higher if I could.Rafael, 77 lessons with Shinsuke
Shinsuke先生's teaching style is conversational, easy-going, and patient. He sprinkles in a lot of information about the nuance of Japanese language, real-world speech and usage, and culture.DAVID, 24 lessons with Shinsuke

Kind, well knowledgeable, and patient.
Shinsuke taught me history of Katakana and interesting topic, as well has beginning level of Hiragana. He gave me text book information to have and follow along with. I look forward to more lessons! My homework is to practice at least 15 characters of Hiragana. Thank you very much!Emma, 51 lessons with Shinsuke
My first lesson was great. I struggle in class and avoid problem words or difficult grammar because I don't want to hold up my class. It's great to be able to have someone patient to help in these areas and build my confidence.Craig, 21 lessons with Shinsuke
Fantastic lesson as always with Shinsuke! He's so patient and kindly answers all of my bizarre questions and confusions. The best teacher ever! See you in a few weeks! -AlexAlex, 45 lessons with Shinsuke
Today was a great day!! I’m happy was able to meet for our lesson. It’s been a while. I was able to practice my speaking skills. I have to remember to perfect my long vowels and double consonants. We read through chapter 10 and 11 dialogues. I was happy the dialogues had a lot of katana words because I needed to practice those. Overall a great lesson. I have a new identity as Stephanie Ryuuko!! Yay! Thanks so much, Shinsuke sensei. Looking forward to our next lesson!!Stephanie , 19 lessons with Shinsuke
Thank you, Sensei!
Nice lesson, as always. Sensei helped me with my Japanese pronounciation, which I always lack confidence in. We read novel together so he could correct my reading of words. We also practiced Japanese speaking by talking casually about things. I learn new things every time. Looking forward to our next session. Have a good one, Sensei!Vicki, 3 lessons with Shinsuke
