Graduate with a bachelor's degree in Japanese Studies offering Japanese lessons from beginner to intermediate in Harrogate

Methodology

I can teach from beginner Japanese up to intermediate level. I base my classes around each individual's level, needs, and think about what they hope to achieve and gain from the lessons. I am patient, and try to encourage students as much as possible with positivity.

Experience

I am Oxford Brookes University graduate. I graduated with a 2:1 in Japanese Studies. I have also spent a year abroad in Japan.
I am very passionate about the subject including the language, culture, food, and so on. In my spare time, I like to teach English to Japanese students online.

Key skills
Communication
• Various experiences such as becoming a student guider has greatly improved my interpersonal skills with a diverse group of people. I have been able to learn a lot by interacting and conversing with people with various different backgrounds.
• Working with adults who have learning disabilities gave me a greater understanding in communicating through other means such as using Makaton sign language, and gestures.

Organisation
• Being head of the Japanese Society, plans for weekly events were managed well in advance by booking rooms or venues, submitting financial forms to the student union, ordering food for events, emailing members, and posting information on the Facebook page.
• As a key worker during my time as a support worker, I wrote daily logs, liaised with the individual’s parents and doctors, administered, and kept strict records of medication, oversaw finances, and supported them with their daily needs.

Teamwork
• My experiences through group presentations and the Japanese society has boosted my confidence in being able to work well in a team by listening to other people’s ideas and valuing their suggestions.
• As part of my local pantomime I was able to work with people on stage as well as the backstage, music, and wardrobe staff. It made me appreciate the work so many people put into creating a show.

Creativity
• Came up with different ideas for sensory activities for many of the learning-disabled adults I supported. Some ideas were going to arts & crafts lessons, baking, playing board games, creating a sensory room with calm lighting, music, and different games and toys they could play with.
• Thought of many new ideas for events for the Japanese society to hold such as film nights, and language exchange parties. This led to more people attending, compared to the previous year, and making the society more popular than it had been before.



Work experience
August 2019 – March 2020 Young family’s personal assistant
• Supported a young adult with a physical disability. Duties included support with personal care, administering medication, and doing hourly checks on her throughout the night.

September 2016 – May 2019 Oxford Brookes University, Student Guider
• Gave prospective students information about the Japanese Studies course, the university, and the city.
• Helped new students to get inducted, and settled in.

November 2011 – February 2013 UBU/Northern Life Care, Support Worker
• Supported adults with learning disabilities. Tasks included personal care, assisting with administration of medication, and helping to manage their finances.
• Individuals had different mental capacities, and learning disabilities, so support was catered to their needs.

Achievements
• Languages: currently speak English and Tagalog fluently, and Japanese to a near native level.
• Japanese Society president: our committee of five ran a society of over 200 members.
• Dormitory leader: leader of around 30 exchange students during my year abroad in Japan. Worked with Japanese resident assistants and exchange students by offering support for anyone who had any problems.
