Lesson Details

Japanese

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I received my bachelors degree from International Christian University in Tokyo, where I lived for five years. In Japan I worked in customer service and as a translator and interpreter, so I am comfortable with both formal and informal Japanese, and I believe it is important to learn both. I grew up in Honolulu, where Japanese is widely taught as a second language, and have extensive experience tutoring learners of the language. I can also teach violin lessons in Japanese.

Teaching since:
September 2006

I began teaching violin when I was in high school, and have taught various students in the years since. I also have extensive experience working as a nanny, and have worked with all ages, from infants to teenagers. In addition to having studied classical violin for 17 years, I am a songwriter and arranger, and perform my string arrangements with other songwriters in various venues around New York City. I have a bachelors degree in linguistics with a minor in music from International Christian University in Tokyo, where I researched the cognitive relationship between speech and music for my graduating thesis. I recently moved to Western Mass after finishing my master's degree in violin performance at Belmont University in Nashville.

**I do have a dog and a cat, so if you or your child has a pet allergy, lessons in my home will not be the right option for you.

Kelsea is a wonderful teacher. She is very patient and take her time with my daughter. She has also been a wonderful influence on my daughter who is learning Japanese and has made great progress with Kelsea. I would refer her to anyone with a child who has a serious interest in learning Japanese.
