Tutor Personal Information

Tutoring Style and/or Experience

**I prefer tutoring face-to-face as opposed to online. I will still work with you if you prefer online**

I am a 19 year old female studying at LBCC. I love languages and love teaching. Hopefully I can help make the process learning Japanese an easier and more fun experience for you! I am comfortable studying either at your home, or at another location in the area.

I will tutor you in conversation, pronunciation, grammar, kanji and culture at a rate of 12$/hr. I have been studying for six years, and have a Japanese Language partner (native speaker) who may vouch for my tutoring abilities. You will not be the first person I have tutored. My level for the JLPT is roughly N1.
Did I mention that I love kanji? If you are anything like many other people I have tutored, you probably have a hard time remembering stroke order, and meaning. If you would like, I will make worksheets specifically for you that are fun and informative for 5$ (this will cover printing costs).

I promise that you will learn to love kanji and find that, through my methods, it is a very easy part of the language to learn.
I will also help you with your homework if you are currently taking a class.

Materials for Beginners tutoring will be provided for you and include:
Genki! II - An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese by Various Authors
A Guide To Remembering Japanese Characters by Kenneth G. Henshall
JLPT Practice Exams
**You may not take home Textbooks if you choose to use the ones I provide**

A standard Japanese dictionary is suggested but not required. Please note that if you have an Andriod Phone, Apple Iphone, Ipod or Ipod Touch, you can download a free comprehensive dictionary called Kotoba! for free from the App Store.
