Sydney tutor in Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese Extension (HSC), (NSW Qualified Teacher)
(4 student reviews)
I have been tutoring in Sydney for over 23 years (since 1997) for both Japanese and Chinese.
I have a degree from UNSW in language teaching.
I was chosen as the interpreter for The Asian Games in Japan Hiroshima 1994.
I'm anchorwoman at 2CR China Radio Network P/L since - 1997-current.
Most HSC students achieved 90 and above (given they did not start tutoring at the last minute).
I teach all areas including listening, reading, speaking and writing.
Before I came to Australia, I lived in Japan (Hiroshima) for 6 years. There I taught Chinese (Mandarin & Cantonese) at the Japanese Foundation YMCA.
For school and university students, I will also assist with homework, assessments, preparation for examinations and all other related matter.
I'm a firm believer that pronunciation accuracy in communicative language learning is most important, therefore I will also focus heavily on pronunciation.
During the 1994 Asian Games in Hiroshima Japan, I provided translation services for the athletes coming from China and Taiwan. Also in Japan I've trained many people in Chinese conversation, culture and customs, including executives from NKK (NihonKouKan) to prepare them for new assignments in China.
I also prepare those who are hoping to participate in the " Japanese-Language Proficiency Test". This examination has 5 levels of difficulty. The certificate is internationally recognized and I highly recommend anyone studying Japanese to attempt the proficiency test as it will be highly beneficial for work or study in Japan.
