Half English and half Japanese Teacher offering Japanese Language lessons online and/or in Cheltenham or surrounding areas

Methodology

I am happy to teach beginner/intermediate level students. I will prepare fun and exciting learning materials for you, however, if there is anything, in particular, you would like to learn or improve on, please let me know and I can sort this out for you! I use lots of repetition and ask lots of questions to ensure you have clearly understood the material. I will always approach you in a calm and friendly manner! I am very patient as I completely understand the difficulties of learning a new language- I had to learn Japanese too! Also, I understand this through teaching English as a Foreign Language.

PLEASE NOTE: I NO LONGER OFFER THE FIRST LESSON FOR FREE.

Experience

I am a professional dancer with twenty years of experience in multiple styles of dance including ballet, modern, tap, jazz, lyrical and contemporary. I have taught Dance privately and with other companies since July 2020. As well as this, I have taught English as a Foreign Language since the start of September to students in Hong Kong, aged 3-13. I graduated in July 2019 with a First Class Honours in BA (Hons) Dance Performance.
