Lesson Details

Japanese

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a president of SUNY Albany Japanese Student Association and also worked as a TA for Japanese 101 classes, and I absolutely love to teach languages! I understand it is often very hard to find a language tutor outside of the spoken community, and I hope to provide you with the opportunity to be exposed to authentic media sources to acquire natural fluency. Hope to hear from you soon!

I LOVE to teach languages and also the enjoyment in devoting your time to music! Excited to hear from you!
