About Michael


Bio

Hello!

My name is Michael and I am a tutor for the Japanese language. I graduated from Furman University in May, 2015, so I'm still in the student mindset, which will hopefully help us to form a more genuine relationship. During my first year of studying Japanese, I felt too proud to ask for help and seek out tutoring. As a result, I did not perform as well as I could have during my first year, which prompted me to study much harder and to not do so alone.

Hello!

My name is Michael and I am a tutor for the Japanese language. I graduated from Furman University in May, 2015, so I'm still in the student mindset, which will hopefully help us to form a more genuine relationship. During my first year of studying Japanese, I felt too proud to ask for help and seek out tutoring. As a result, I did not perform as well as I could have during my first year, which prompted me to study much harder and to not do so alone.

During my second year, I lived in what Furman calls the "Language House," which is a program in which a native Japanese graduate student comes to live with you and teach you how to speak more fluidly. This helped me to speak in a less plain, textbook style manner and gave me the pushes I needed to perform well in my classes and studies. Although I'm nowhere near as fluent as a native speaker, I am still rather confident in my ability to understand, speak, and teach the language. I am of the opinion that, at this point, the only way I could further improve my skills would be to actually live in Japan and learn to speak colloquial Japanese.

Please do not feel as though you need to study alone and teach yourself as I did during my first year. A strong foundation is very important in learning any language and especially so in Japanese. My best areas of tutoring are in the beginning and intermediate levels of the language. In terms of classes those would be the 100 and 200 level courses. I am able to teach higher levels, but the 100 and 200 level courses are where I have experience tutoring.
