Experienced Native Japanese Tutor

Canberra tutor in Japanese

(18 student reviews)

I am a native speaker of Japanese and have been teaching languages for more than a decade. I completed my master's degree in Linguistics at ANU and a graduate certificate in Foreign Language Teaching at UC.
I am passionate about helping people with language because I myself have studied several. At university, my major was Spanish language and I minored in English and Italian so I understand the process and rewards of learning a new language!

I am available to tutor all ages, skill levels and interests.

Typically I structure my lesson using the '3P method' starting with;
Presentation - where I introduce the grammar, vocabulary, or a lesson target.
Practice - where I guide you through grammar rules or meanings through drills.
Production - where we tailor the new language to your interests and goals usually in a practical/natural setting.

However, I am happy to structure the lesson however you would like, for example, free conversation or role play scenarios. I can also cater for groups and can travel for lessons - please enquire for a quote.

Thank you for reading this. ありがとうございます :)
