I have been tutoring high school students for four years when I was a undergraduate student, and I have actually taught undergraduate students in the US in the past two years. To be more precise, I have worked as a graduate teaching assistant for the department of political science from 2014 to 2016. As a graduate teaching assistant, I have delivered lectures for the courses of undergraduate level, including international law, political regimes, Japanese politics, and human rights and global governance. Currently, I am working as a research assistant helping a scholar to draft lectures on international law for law students, preparing myself to pursue PhD in political science. My future goal is to become a professor at college. Hence, I feel very passionate with teaching and tutoring!
I am a native Japanese speaker and fluent in English. It is my pleasure if I could help people to learn about Japanese language as well as Japanese culture and politics, etc.
I already earned MA in political science and have two-year experience as a teaching assistant in this field. I have knowledge on American foreign policies as well as Asian politics.
I work as a full-time research assistant at a research and educational institution in DC but I have a very flexible schedule. I like to interact with students and it would be my great pleasure if I could help your success in business and academia.

We reviewed international law concepts for my final. Shino was super helpful and asked me tough questions so that I could better prepare my final memo for my class. I would recommend her to any student who needs assistance with International Law or Political Science.
Shino is always thoughtful and patient in her tutoring. She goes the extra mile and brings things to the lessons. She also take an interest in the student and has helped push them to be more creative
Shino is teaching my 6th grade daughter Japanese. Both academic and conversational to prepare her for an immersion summer camp. My daughter is thoroughly enjoying the structure and pace of the lessons.
Shino is teaching my son basic Japanese. This is the first time my son is taking Japanese and Shino is very patient. My son is very happy with her. I am impressed how much my son has learned with her on his first lesson. I definitely recommend her as a tutor.
I met with Shino for the first time and even before the lesson she was very involved - offering to give me a hiragana/katagana practice book that she got from her latest trip to Tokyo, which she also used when she was a child. She was extremely helpful with basic questions about calligraphy and pronunciation and came prepared with materials for me to look over for learning. She was also glad to use any textbooks I brought as well as to customize a lesson plan based on my specific goals. I greatly look forward to meeting with her on a regular basis.
We worked on listening in preparation for the JLPT N4 exam coming up. We reviewed dialogs from an N4 study book with recordings. Shino was very helpful in understanding the informal conversations which I have little practice in.
Very good lesson plan with a good pace. I'm a beginner in Japanese and learning the right amount .
Shino was patient and easy to get along with. It was really useful going through Japanese corporate records with her. She is extremely knowledgable in Japanese law and business vocabulary/language.
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.
I completed my MA in political science both at Ohio University (2013) and University of Delaware (2016). Though I was initially enrolled in PhD in political science at University of Delaware, I decided to leave the program along with my advisor's retirement due to his significant health issues (he was expected to be my dissertation chair). As a graduate teaching assistant, I set office hours, meeting regularly undergraduate students; I graded their exams and research papers; I delivered lectures of comparative politics, global governance, and international law. Tutoring methods vary, depending on students' needs. In fact, I assisted 70-90 undergraduate students per semester 2014-2016, and their academic strengths and weaknesses differed. I can help students to improve their research and writing skills (as I know how professors grade their work and how to write academic papers), I can help students to prepare for presentations based on my numerous experiences to present my work at academic conferences in the field of political science as represented by APSA (American Political Science Association) and ISA (International Study Association).
