My teaching method is to approach each topic through a combination of oral and written comprehension. I am able to teach those aiming for a qualification or who would like a broader knowledge of the language and culture.
I am a final year Economics student at the University of Bristol and have attained A*'s in my GCSE and A-level Japanese qualifications as well as the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) to an N2 level. Also, I have attended 7 years of Japanese Saturday School in North London and did a summer Japanese language session at Sofia Univerity in Tokyo (上智大学, Jōchi Daigaku) where I received an A grade. I am a friendly, very organised student with experience mentoring younger children.
