About Steve

I have a BA in Japanese from Brigham Young University. I have lived in Japan on two separate occasions, first for two years, then, after finishing my degree, for five years. My entire professional career has involved Japan and the Japanese language. I taught Japanese classes at BYU for three years while finishing my BA and throughout my graduate school studies. I love the language and culture of Japan and have the teaching experience to help you learn the rules and understand how to communicate both verbally and culturally in Japanese. If you are a Japanese speaker learning English, I can help there, too. I studied both modern and classical Japanese grammar, which helped me understand my native English grammar better.

I am passionate about Japanese and will work as hard as I can to help you get through whatever class situation you have. I am the one people (my kids, wife, mother) always come to for help on their homework because I'm patient and thorough. I've taught professionally and informally and I enjoy the exchange between student and teacher. I'm sure I can help you.

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

I have a bachelor's degree in Japanese from Brigham Young University. I taught Japanese courses at Brigham Young for three years. I lived in Japan for a total of seven years and served on a board of directors where all the meetings were held in the Japanese language.
