About Shinsuke

Hello,

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.

Thank you,
Shinsuke

Very skilled and experienced tutor — Today I had a great first meeting with Shinsuke. He is clearly very experienced in working with students of varying backgrounds and needs. We started off with discussing my purpose for learning Japanese and areas on which I wished to focus. We quickly delved into an introduction to the Hiragana lettering system, regular-voiced-unvoiced consonants, long vowels, and double consonants. Along the way ...
