I am actually a speech therapist. With 20 years since graduation under my belt, I am a pretty experienced therapist. My experience includes hours upon hours of children and adults. My reason for going with Take Lessons is that there are some people who want to learn conversational Japanese but don't qualify for "therapy" per se, because they do not live in an environment where Japanese is regularly spoken.

I am a native speaker, and I am fluent in English. I received all of my professional training in English. Might I say I function well in both languages, speaking, reading and writing. My desired focus is accent modification, targeting intermediate and advanced non-native speakers to bring their speech closer to native speech.

I am from Yokohama area. My Japanese can reflect mild regional flavor, but generally smack within standard Japanese.

About Chie B.

With the recent surge in popularity with all things to do with Japan, speaking the language like a native is an enviable skill. Many an excellent teachers abound, but I think my unique set of skills may offer an edge to those who want to learn to sound closer to a native speaker. I am a certified Speech-Language Pathologist, but I am offering my service as simply as a person who 1. speaks Japanese as a native, 2. speaks English sufficiently for teaching and 3. clinical skills to customize various methods and tools to meet various individual needs. I do work as a speech therapist, but for the people who don't need to speak Japanese in their daily environment, that need cannot be called a significant disorder in a medical sense. Take Lessons was a way for me to do what I have always wanted to do in a way that serves people with aspirations.
