First-class Japanese degree holder with 7 years of linguistic background offering tuition in Birmingham.

Methodology

You will find my teaching methodology to be interactive and flexible to be tailored to your own pursuits. Everyone is welcome whether you are a complete beginner in Japanese or just want someone to practice speaking with. I can help you write speeches, use Keigo, Kansai-ben and learn all 3 scripts while giving you the real-life cultural knowledge you will need on a trip to Japan.
よろしくお待ちいたします!

Experience

I am a dual citizen of the UK and New Zealand, with strong multi-cultural experience having studied abroad at Japan's most prestigious universities in the Touhoku region - Keio University and Yokohama National University. Having studied the Japanese language to N2 level, alongside courses on Japanese history, pop culture and cinema, I have situated my whole career focus on relations in Asia and the Pacific. My other major is linguistics, therefore I am aware of the mechanics behind the language learning process. I have tutored English and numeracy for Australasian company NumberWorks n'Words in the past for ages 5 - 15.
