Japanese Language and Culture enthusiast, who wants to impart their knowledge to others.

Methodology

My teaching methodology changes according to the person I am working with. I am a firm believer that not everyone learns the same way and that it is a teachers job to modify their teaching methods to best fit with the students their are teaching.

Background

I am a recent graduate of UBC, where I majored in Japanese and minored in Language Learning and Education. I have tutored Japanese throughout high school, where I successfully helped classmates catch up or go beyond their current class level.

Hannah's resume

Previous Jobs:

Rajio Public House: Worked in the kitchen for the first 10 months of employment followed by working in the hall. Here I have gained experience in working in a fast paced environment, where teamwork and communication is key for smooth service to customers. I was also able to help coworkers, who are from Japan on their work holiday visas, improve their English by explaining vocabulary, vocabulary usage in different contexts, and grammatical points with which they have trouble with in everyday conversations or in their classes. (October 11, 2015 – April 20, 2018)


Experience:

Volunteered as a Japanese Class Teaching Assistant; where in I helped the Japanese teacher by grading papers and giving individual detailed explanations so that the teacher could focus on teaching the class as a whole. This gave me experience interacting with various people in a helpful and open-minded way, while also using “own-language” to teach/explain concepts in the target language. (Sept. 2012 – June 2014)

Worked as Japanese tutor for fellow students. I tutored classmates to get them back up to speed with the rest of the class, by giving them tips that they could then use to keep up and make individual studying easier as class moved on. Through this I gained insight in how to engage fellow students in a difficult subject and how to personalize information to different types of people. (Sept. 2012 – June 2013)

Elected Group Leader and Main Chef during cooking class. Here I gained experience in keeping control of a group under high-pressure situations. This experience also helped to improve my leadership skills when faced with a group deadline and the changing dynamics of a group. (Sept. 2013 – May 2014)

Put in 10 hours of observation and 10 hours of practicum teaching at SUCCESS. During this time I worked with a class of adult LINC 4 english learners, observing how the teacher taught them, followed by teaching them lessons as well. It is here that I was able to gain both experience teaching and understand aspects about teaching that I had learned about. (Jan. 2018 – Feb. 2018)

Education:

2014 - 2018: Bachelor of Arts, Major in Japanese Language and Culture, Minor in Language Learning and Education, Faculty of Arts, University of British Columbia
