Experienced and Expert Japanese Coach for Year 10 to 12

Melbourne tutor in Japanese

(13 student reviews)

I am Junko and a native speaker.

I have taught Japanese since 2003 to Primary, high school (year7-VCE), uni students and other people who is going to Japan for travel or work.
My aim is to let other people enjoy learning the language with improving the skills of speaking, writing, reading and listening. It is always a pleasure to see them improving and when the students talk to me with a smile in Japanese.

I do have a lot of experience in tutoring VCE students, many of which have obtained high study scores (40+), and simultaneously had majority of my students gradually but definitely shown great improvement in their test scores. Despite this, it is most important for me to ensure that all my students enjoy learning and extending their knowledge and interest for Japanese culture and language, and therefore attempt to make lessons different and fun for the learner.

Generally, I use major high school text books such as Kookoo Seikatsu, Mirai etc.; however, am open to using different materials and textbooks to further extend specific skills and aspects of Japanese language. For VCE students I use a wide range of materials and books, as well as previous test papers to effectively prepare students for SACS and exams. I do have workbooks and textbooks specifically for JLPT and conversational language skills too.

It is very important for me to talk about many various matters, such as checking student's school homework and answering any questions or insecurities they may have. I offer all age and levels of training. I structure lessons individually.

Let me help you study together! I am looking forward to hearing from you.

"Junko is extremely nice and friendly with all her students. I loved learning with her and will miss her so so much. She is a great teacher and puts in a lot of effort to make sure her students feel prepared for their sacs, orals and exams. She has all the materials you need and always giving practice readings, writing, etc. I’ve never had a tutor that is as committed as Junko- I strongly recommend her!!"
