Lesson Details

Japanese

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Improve your Japanese speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills from lessons taught by an instructor with a degree in Japanese language. I lived in Japan for 15 years, teaching at high school, university and business levels. I can also offer insights into Japanese culture and living in Japan. I have devised a "crash course" in Japanese which is ideal for those planning to relocate or visit soon.

I am an English language instructor (native-speaker) with over 18 years of teaching experience, the nine most recent of which have been in post-secondary, diplomatic, and university settings. My qualifications include an M.A. TESOL (New York University) with a 4.0 GPA, B.A. in Japanese and Linguistics (Massey University), and Cambridge CELTA. I have extensive experience teaching a diverse range of adult English Language Learners in the USA, Belgium, and Japan. My most recent teaching positions involved instructing academic, professional, and general EFL courses at the New York University ALI Tokyo Center and academic English courses at Waseda University in Japan. I have also taught English to junior and senior high school students in Japan. I am a reliable, well-organized, positive, and cooperative individual with a love of teaching, empowering, and motivating my students to help them fulfill their potential. I would truly appreciate the opportunity to contribute to your learning.

It was a good experience. I especially liked the attention Kevin gave to details such as how to say particular syllables, the mouth movement etc..

Kevin is an excellent teacher. He is very knowledgeable and provides many useful suggestions to help me achieve my goal. So far I have benefited a lot from teaching experiences he shared during the class. He is also very willing to accommodate for my learning needs. I highly recommend his class!
