Class is led with a basic understanding: conversation is where we learn a language. My goal is to get students talking from class one, and to expand upon the necessary grammar elements that come from our basic back and forth. This is the foundation from which we develop all skills in the language. Homework assignments are given in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Students are welcome to bring their school work/personal work if relevant to class.

About Walker
Working with teens and adults, I'm learning that language is about connection. What do you connect to in this culture, in these sounds, this perspective? Language expands our power to connect with the world. Sometimes that means enjoying foreign cartoons, at other times making conversation in another country, maybe even reading and writing tweets across the globe. Whatever your motivation may be, I am here to encourage and guide your growth and goals. I've studied and lived in both France and Japan, and built relationships with acquaintances and long term friends alike through these languages. Tutoring I began first with fellow students at DePaul in 2012, facilitating round table discussion with exchange students, and working as an English conversation partner. Since then I've been leading group classes with homeschool students in a Chica
go Co-Op, as well as with private clients in person and online. There is great wonder in language and crossing into new territory; this drives me to share what I have learned with all the people who want to learn too. Focus and determination, along with the right resources and support, can bring you towards your goals. I am here to help.

Thank you very much for helping me, You are one of the best tutor which I had during my study at ELA(DePaul Language Academy). Walker has a great personality and patient for teaching his students the best language skills. Walker`s subjects is not only enhances the language skills, but also the way how a student has to interact with environment which he lives in. He uses different teaching approaches such as games, sports conversation , and deep cultural conversation to make a student gain enough self-confidence to use the language properly. Besides that, his correct use of language skills enhances the students capability for taking more space, and feel more comfortable using the language. Thank you for teaching me English, thank you for making me feel comfortable while I am talking mine 6th language. The most important part of his tutoring sections is the way who he provides the information about the cultural environment, so to help the students to be solid against any culture shock waves. Thank you again for being such a great tutor. Thank you for encouragements, They helped me to feel more confidence while I am using the language for my academic purpose and among my friends.

Walker is an awesome instructor. He's funny and warm and practicing conversation is always something I looked forward to! He's hands-down my favourite tutor I've ever had. As Japanese is such a complicated language, that's saying a lot. I had tons of problems with grammatical rules and Walker really made me feel at ease with his easy to understand explanations. I learned more Japanese in our weekly conversation sessions than I did in a year of my college classes. ウォーカー先生、ありがとうございます!^ - ^

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

About Kenji Luis
I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages. I attended an English-Portuguese Bilingual school through 6th grade and studied Japanese 4 years in high school, along with weekend Japanese school classes. In college I went on to major in International Relations & Diplomacy with a concentration in French studies, also honing my Spanish that I had picked up along the way (with Romance Languages, I have a very easy time of language absorption). I've gone on to work for international companies wherein my language skills have been highly sought after, translating & communicating often in all my language strengths.

The Japanese language and everything about Japan has been a central part of my existence for most of my life. As I mastered Japanese I went through the same problems you will and that's why I can accelerate your learning speed. I know strategies and ways that helped me navigate this tricky language so you reach your goals fast. I am looking forward to working with you to achieve your goals!

About Aaron
Japanese and everything about Japan is my passion. I first started learning Japanese in high school and studied abroad in Japan through AFS for a year while living with a host family. While I was there I passed level 2 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), a first for any AFS student at the time. I went on to attend the Japanese language school Yamasa in Aichi, Prefecture and then passed level 1 of the JLPT at age 20. Afterward, I attended Nanzan University where I graduated from the Business Management Department in 2009. Since graduating I have worked as a freelance translator and interpreter for 9 years.

Through my experiences learning Japanese and living in Japan I can answer any questions you may have about the language or culture. I enjoy teaching everyone from beginner's to those studying advanced Japanese to enter a
university or work in Japan. Unlike a native Japanese speaker, I am able to systematically explain grammar and other technical areas in a way that will make sense. You can then quickly utilize these techniques to accelerate your own learning.

Each lesson will be tailored to the specific area you would like to study and improve. If you would like to work on conversational Japanese for instance, I can teach you informal Japanese so you can have conversations with friends or dive deeper into a hobby you may have such as anime, J-pop or video games. Learning in a fun and relaxing atmosphere is important and will help you learn quicker and retain information.
