Kana K.

I am a native Japanese speaker and I love teaching! It's a joy for me to teach Japanese to students who are interested in learning about the language. I have been teaching Japanese for over 20 years. I do not just teach Japanese, I also teach you the culture if you are interested in learning about it. The Japanese culture has strong ties with the language. My philosophy of learning Japanese is through Immersion environment. I have my own technique that I show my student to improve their vocabulary, writing, speaking and listening. And mostly I make it fun! I received my AA from Japanese college from Hagoromo College in Osaka and MBA from university in the US. I had worked for various companies in the US. I tailor my lesson to each individual level and goal.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Mr. G goes over and above to help me pursue my interests. He helped me sing through a difficult time while my voice was changing. He supports me at performances and never fails to make me laugh. Working with him has been a fantastic experience and I feel that I have grown so much.
Megan
I got in touch with Daniel so I could get back in singing shape as an adult who had lapsed - a lot! He's friendly, kind, and patient, with a clear way of explaining technique that's really helped me get it. I've improved noticeably in a short amount of time!

"I am taking a course with Pascale through a university continuing education program. It is a perfect course for anyone who would like to visit France because Pascale is helping us to develop the practical, everyday language skills we need. For example, we learn vocabulary related to shopping for food at a market and we learn how to interact with a hotel reservation desk. Pascale is helping us to build vocabulary and create good sentence structure. The best part is the way Pascale is able to make the learning process enjoyable. I would recommend her."
