About Alexis

Konnichiwa! I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Japanese Language and Culture and took 4 years of Japanese classes while of earning it. I studied abroad in Tokyo for one semester during that time as well, which further enabled me to improve my speaking and reading skills. I had the opportunity to tutor college students and adults in both Japanese, English and ESL while participating in language exchange clubs at my university here in the states and the one I attended in Japan.

Whether you want to begin studying for the first time or you're already experienced, I can tutor you in speaking, reading and writing Japanese. If you're interested in learning or improving your English, I can tutor in areas such as grammar, vocabulary and literature.

Learning a new language (or even mastering your own) is very difficult, so I will do everything I can to make sure you feel comfortable asking questions and leave each session feeling satisfied that you learned something new. Mainly I want to make sure you enjoy learning a language with me so you can continue speaking with confidence for years to come.

I am available to meet in person or online. I hope to hear from you soon so we can study together!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Cooking

I have more than two years of experience in the culinary field, over a year of which includes instruction to people of all ages. I oversaw a weekly seasonal garden club for elementary students that included healthy cooking demonstrations. I more recently assisted with recreational cooking classes at Sur La Table, a cooking and kitchen goods retailer.

Japanese

I studied Japanese for 4 years in college while earning my Bachelor's degree in Asian Languages and Cultures (specializing in Japanese). I also participated in a semester-long exchange program at a university in Tokyo.

Macintosh

I began using the Macintosh operating system (OS) in earnest in 2012, so I can vividly remember what it was like to make the switch from Microsoft Windows to a system with so many differences. Now I use both the Microsoft Windows and Macintosh OSs on a daily basis and can identify the major differences and common frustrations between the two. I have assisted personal and professional acquaintances learn how to use the Macintosh OS and related technology (e.g. iPhones, Apple TV, etc.) frequently in the years since learning myself.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using Microsoft Windows for many years (I can hardly remember a time before I used it) and am confident in my ability to assist others in learning to use the operating system. I taught my elderly grandmother to use Windows and before too long she was emailing me on a weekly basis. I understand that, despite being a system that comes naturally to many younger people, those who are not familiar with the ins and outs of using it need to be taught with a patient hand and that I am confident in my ability to do that.

Softball

I began playing softball in middle school and eventually became captain of my high school's varsity team, covering various positions on the field and in the batting order during my time on the team (mainly alternating between third base and right field). I continued playing on an intramural team in college. For the past 3-4 years I have remained interested in softball and active in other sports.

Extremely patient and kind with my shy 14 yr old Granddaughter. Alexis makes her feel very comfortable so my Granddaughter is not afraid to ask questions. A big plus in my book! Thankful to have found her through Wyzant.
