Lesson Details

English

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I started my teaching career when I was a college student. In Japan, I taught both English and Japanese to middle and high school students at a private academy.
I have also taught Japanese and English to adults especially the spouses stationed in Japan and also American community college. I have a Master of Education in TESL; therefore, I’ve taught English more vigorously, but know what it takes to be successful at second language acquisition. I really find it rewarding to teach those who are interested in a foreign language and culture.

I like to get to know your learning styles and what motivates you. I will cater to your needs and make your own lesson plan just for you.

I love teaching and discovering my own culture through the eyes of the students. I love to meet new people and just love the people who want to learn a foreign language. It gives you an opportunity to widen your view of the world!

I’ve also played the piano since I was 3 years old and have the Yamaha certification; therefore, I teach piano too. I also love to play!!

Great lesson at a good pace. Has plenty of practice material and explains things that are easy to understand. Let me borrow a couple of books to practice with.

Ai is a great teacher. Her lesson plans are well prepared and organized. She is very patient and flexible. She does not rush through the lessons and makes sure you understand the material before moving forward. I would highly recommend Ai if you are looking for a Japanese teacher.
