Levels taught:
I am an open minded, friendly, multicultural experienced tutor of Japanese languages.
I can personalize lessons at your request from using basic GENKI textbook or Japanese for busy people to free conversation upon your advance request. Please let me know what your purpose and goal. I will do my best to help you to achieve your goal. (Hopefully with a lot of fun.)
I can also teach you Japanese culture such as Origami, cooking and calligraphy. I love Japanese history and would like to share richness of Japanese culture.

About May G.

My native language is Japanese. I grew up and obtained B.A in Linguistic at Kinjo University, Nagoya, Japan. I have 4 years of English tutoring experience for local high school English learners in Japan. As a career, I was an instructor for the airline reservation system to travel agents. Teaching is always my passion. Since I moved to the US 16 years ago and have been teaching Japanese on and off from children to adults as a volunteer and now I am working to get a certification on Japanese teaching. I am knowledgeable in Japanese history and culture as well.

I teach using Genki or Japanese for buy people.
I also offer a free trial lesson. Let me know if you are interested.

Our youngest daughter absolutely loves the Japanese culture and language… She also has autism… We couldn’t have asked for a more patient and prepared instructor than May.We are lucky to have found her!

I have been working with her on and off for over a year. She's been a fantastic tutor. She willing and able to adapt her tutoring to specific needs and flexible in terms of how and when to meet. Recently I traveled to Japan and I was able to function in simple conversations which was what I needed and the trip went well. She has a good sense of humor and does not take herself too seriously. I definitely recommend her and will continue to use her.
