Japanese teacher/tutor with 5 years experience for online or in person tutoring in Rochester, NY


I believe in meeting students where they're at, and working with them to approach their learning goals in a targeted and engaging way. I've worked with students at all different levels and taught all kinds of topics, ranging from culture and history to in-depth grammatical concepts.


I'm a Masters student studying psycholinguistics and have been studying Japanese for nearly 10 years. I've taught Japanese for 5 of those, and I've spent extensive time living and studying in Japan as well. I've taught a range of levels in a range of styles.
