Mrs. Jen has been a violin teacher for our daughter for 3.5 years. She is an extremely qualified and talented musician who deeply cares about her students and is committed to teaching. She is kind and patient, but also effective and motivating. When our 8 year old daughter learned Mrs. Jen was moving she said, "I probably will never have as neat or special of a violin teacher as Mrs. Jen"- and she's right!

First lesson was fine. We took a few minutes to find each other in a cafe setting but as it was also a meet and greet session I wasn't too concerned about time. As it turns out Beth more than made up the time. She's very pleasant and easy to speak with. We went over my goals, simple traveler type words, phrases and questions, and a work schedule to cover the next several weeks. Beth told me how she was going to approach teaching me after listening to my goals. I'm looking forward to the next session where we can focus on learning the language.

Sara M.

West Sacramento, CA

About Sara

Hello, My name is Sara and my mother is Japanese from Kobe, Japan and my father is Caucasian American. I grew up speaking both Japanese and English and I now work as a bilingual, full-time actor in beautiful Northern California. I'm looking forward to working with you on reaching your goals for 2016! Whether you want to study acting or Japanese, I'd like to talk about what you wish to accomplish with our time together. Your goals are important to me and I wish to help support you on your journey towards achieving them.

I've been mentoring actors for the past four years and have have be
en teaching Japanese and English for 3 years. A friend suggested I start teaching online after I told him about my desire to offer affordable acting lessons to anyone who was passionate about it, but had no resources. So here I am and I'm also offering Japanese lessons since I know it can be hard to find a Japanese teacher/tutor as well.

I have a B.A. in Theatre Arts and a minor in Education from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana and have a certificate of completion from the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco for completing their Classical Acting Intensive course. In addition to my western training I was an apprentice at Theatre of Yugen where I studied the dramatic art of Noh and Kyogen theatre for 3 years.

I've also taught Japanese 101 during college as part of my course work for Teaching Japanese as a Second Language as well as beginner Japanese to 5-7 graders at a local elementary.

And I also was an assistant English teacher for 2 years in Japan teaching Junior High School and working as a primary visiting teacher for over 40 elementary schools. Although my work was to teach English, because of my Japanese ability, I often worked as a substitute teacher and also translated documents for the local City Hall.

I can't wait to meet you and to work with you on pursuing your 2015 aspirations!

I took Abram's English research project class when I was doing a summer program at UCD. He's a great teacher, always very helpful, passionate, and you can tell how much he loves to teach. I always looked forward to his class because he knew very well how to create a comfortable and fun learning atmosphere for all international students.
