I was born in Japan, but I lived in Taiwan and Hong Kong for 12 years until I was 14 years old. I really enjoyed living in foreign countries and communicating with foreigners from different background. That's why I started teaching Japanese. I have been teaching Japanese for 7 years.
I specialize in tutoring Japanese for daily conversation, business, and, tests such asthe Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). For the JLPT, 8 of my students have passed N1, 15 have passed N2, 40 have passed N3.
I am also able to edit and provide feedback for professional resumes and employment applications, as I have a lot of experience doing so in my previous job working as an International Student Coordinator.
I can also play the role of an interviewer for mock interviews to improve not only your interview skills, but your ability to communicate in Japanese as a whole.
For anyone looking for a Japanese language teacher I cannot recommend anyone more highly than Saeko Hirota Miller.
During my time studying with Saeko, my comprehension of and ability to properly use Japanese vocabulary and grammar improved dramatically. It was under Saeko‘s instruction that I prepared for and passed the N2 level Japanese Language Proficiency Test. This is something I could not have done without her.
Saeko is professional, well prepared and able to tailor lessons to suit students’ needs and interests. She can help students improve in areas of weakness and push students to expand abilities even further in areas of strength.
It doesn’t matter if you are a complete beginner or have been studying Japanese for decades. Having Saeko as a teacher will only be a benefit to you. I give her my strongest possible recommendation.
I studied Japanese with Saeko Sensei for 2 years. I know that without her, I wouldn’t have advanced nearly as much in my studies. She was very attentive to my learning needs, and was very good at explaining even the most obscure grammar in easy to understand terms. I am very grateful to her for her help, and I highly recommend anyone to study Japanese with her!
Saeko taught me Japanese when I lived in Japan for 2 years. Thanks to her lessons I was able to pass levels N4 and N3 of the JLPT. She catered her lessons to meet my study needs and I always enjoyed speaking with her in class.
Saeko is an exceptional educator. I have been studying Japanese with her for nearly 2 years. She tailors her methods to her students, and works at a pace appropriate to your needs. Her lessons are detailed and adhere to respected instructional principles. Saeko thoroughly incorporates experiential learning and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a teacher.
