First off, I have always loved Japanese culture and also the Japanese Language. I have taught Japanese previously at Florida International University as a tutor in their language lab up until I graduated with my degree in Asian Studies. I have studied abroad in Japan at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto and I also taught English in Tokyo last year. I even won my Japanese Speech Contest of Florida at Florida International University. I have the neccesary qualifications to teach Japanese at any level my students are in. As for Mandarin Chinese I have the neccesary skills to teach beginning to intermediate levels professionally. English as a Second Language is also another subject I can teach well at any level. Spanish I can also teach beginner and intermediate levels.

David is very enthusiastic and passionate about his work. In fact it's almost like he was born to teach foreign languages. He's so fluent in Japanese that it's almost as if he's a native speaker.

David is a great patient tutor and naturally gifted with foreign languages. A real pleasure to be taught by.

What makes Japanese lessons with me unique is that I have been studying Japanese for many years and I have been to Japan twice. It is a beautiful culture and language that I have learned a lot from. I am just as passionate as any native speaker would be. I consider myself to be a teaching professional and an expert at the Japanese Language.
