About Mika

Currently double-majoring in Japanese and Chinese language at Western Washington University, I am myself an avid learner and have had study abroad experience in both China and Japan.

I have had three years of Mandarin Chinese Language at the university level and am currently enrolled in a Business Chinese class at Western Washington University. I have also been accepted into the Critical Language Scholarship Program for intensive language study in China this summer. I recently received a score of Advanced High in my listening comprehension skills as given by the CCALT in accordance with the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines.

I currently serve as a part-time tutor for credit at Western for both Japanese and Mandarin Chinese. Functional at an advanced level in all three languages, I am comfortable working with students that have a wide range of experience and proficiency levels. I am available to tutor Japanese, Chinese, English, or beginning flute lessons.

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.

Chinese

I have had three years of Mandarin Chinese Language at the university level and am currently enrolled in a Business Chinese class at Western Washington University. I have also been accepted into the Critical Language Scholarship Program for intensive language study in China this summer. I recently received a score of Advanced High in my listening comprehension skills as given by the CCALT in accordance with the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines.

Flute

I have studied/played the flute for nearly ten years and was formerly a member of the Mt.Baker Youth Symphony for five years. I also was a flautist in the audition-only concert band in high school, participated in the SJMEA competitions for four consecutive years, and took flute lessons both in high school and during my first two years of college. Although no longer enrolled in classes, I have since tutored two beginner flute students for a short-term period.

Japanese

I am currently finishing up a year-long study abroad program at Nagoya University (2014-2015) through the Monbukagakusho Japanese Governmental Scholarship Program for Japanese Language and Cultural Studies.
I also recently took and passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) N1 (the most advanced level), obtaining certification of near native fluency in modern Japanese.
I also studied abroad at Doshisha University in Kyoto with the Critical Language Scholarship Program (2012) and volunteered with disaster relief and local outreach work in the Tohoko region affected by the March 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami (2013).
At my home university (Western Washington University) I am currently finishing up a double major in Japanese and Chinese language and culture.
