About Rebekah

I am a recent MA history graduate of the University of Oregon, with a specialization in premodern Japan. Though my area of focus is Japan, my training as a historian has centered around mastery of the skills of reading and writing, as well as the Japanese language. As a Graduate Teaching Fellow at UO, I have had the opportunity to work with students both inside and outside of the classroom. I particularly enjoy working with students on an individual basis in order to tailor my methods to their particular needs so as to promote their academic growth. For this reason I find teaching to be very rewarding.

My students have frequently told me that I am very kind and gentle and I think I would be particularly well suited for students of all ages who are shy or who may be easily overwhelmed by social situations.

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

In my academic background in Japanese history I have studied both modern and Classical Japanese. I have experience with a variety of sources in Japanese, including novels and poetry. I also have experience living in Japan.
