25 years experience in Japanese. I can teach you from an English speaker's perspective.

Methodology

It depends on your level and preferences but we can tackle all parts of Japanese - basic grammar and vocabulary, sentence structures, different levels of politeness (one of the trickiest and most important parts of Japanese!), everyday conversation, slang, and of course, how to tackle learning the 2000 or so kanji you will need to be able to read Japanese - it is possible! :-)

Experience

I am a Japanese to English translator. I lived in Japan for 16 years and have used the language daily since 1995. I passed the Level 1 JLPT in 2008. I can teach you both written and spoken Japanese perspective from the perspective of an English speaker who has mastered the language.
