About Taro
こんにちは

My name is Taro, and I am from Kobe. I have been teaching Japanese since 2015 to students of all ages.

Learning a new language could be difficult. The initial reason I came to the US was to learn English. I eventually finished Tulane University and American University for my BA and MA, but I struggled with English in the beginning.

I had got comfortable with my English after some time, and since I have been interested in learning languages, I also learned Spanish. Through the process, I have learned effective ways to learn a new language, which I will be sharing with you.

One of the most important things while learning a new language is to develop a solid foundation of the basics. Once you have developed the basics, the rest will come with less effort. So I like giving structures to my students using different core ma
terials so they can get the basics right.

In addition, I use Google Sheet in which you can see all the lessons and homework in one document. This simplifies the learning process which enables you to keep track of the materials you are covering.

Students have different reasons for studying Japanese, so I give customization based on the need of each student outside the core materials.

I am glad that you are interested in learning Japanese. Japan has a beautiful culture, and I look forward to helping you get to the level you desire so you can have a renewed appreciation for what Japan offers.

I have been taking Japanese lessons with Taro Sensei for about 5 months. He is a very patient and organized instructor. He designs the teaching material based on my specific level and goals. I enjoy the fun conversation with him during every lesson. My Japanese skill has improved gradually as time goes by. Thank you Taro Sensei.

Taguchi Sensei has helped improve my Japanese tremendously! Not only is he able to accommodate my sometimes crazy schedule, but he's very patient while learning, will go in-depth on topics I don't quite understand and will provide exercises for me on those topics. He's personal, so we use real-time situations from my life to practice with (describing my day at work, where my cats are, what I ate, etc.)

When I visted Japan this year, I owe it to him that I was able to have the amazing experiences I did. Because of him, I was able to understand the language, the culture, and have the confidence in speaking with locals.

I appriciate all the help and encourgaement that he's provided.
ありがとうございます田口先生!

About Thomas
I am born and have grown up Deaf. I regularly communicate in American Sign Language (ASL).

During my time at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), I weekly met a few students and helped them with their ASL courses. I signed words and sentences to these students when they asked me questions.

After I have graduated from RIT, I have worked at two federal agencies for three years. At one of these federal agencies, I have participated in ASL courses by one-on-one signing words and sentences to tutees and by having these tutees copy these words and sentences in ASL.

I can provide ASL lessons in the alphabet, common signs, visual description, classifiers, sentence structure, facial expression, body language, specialized signs, and ethical or professional relationships with Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing people. In addition these le
ssons, I can explain how signs and sentence structure form.

Florentina is very knowledgeable, professional, and super easy to be with! She's also very supportive, and although my determination to practice hard pieces and new techniques can sometimes dip, I always leave our sessions feeling renewed and eager to continue my mission. I can't recommend her enough!

About Ola
Hello! ¡Hola! Cześć! Привет! I am a learner, tutor, and lover of many languages, recently graduated from the College of William and Mary, B.A. in Government and Hispanic Studies. I have a years-worth of language-teaching training and experience and this fall I'm moving to Spain to teach English.

I grew up as a bilingual ESL student myself, learning Polish and English at two different schools at the same time, all the way through high school. I started learning Spanish 10 years ago in middle school and Russian 4 years ago in college. I've been in so many different language classrooms, with various teachers, lessons, and activities that have strengthened my skills and inspired me to tutor and teach languages as well!
I first started tutoring Spanish and ESL in high school, immersing myself in a diverse community, meeting students fro
m all around the world, and getting to know their backgrounds and cultures for a better understanding of their interests and learning styles. I've translated and incorporated many activities from my own language classes to help my peers in their studies, which they've found very useful!
In my undergraduate career, I studied Spanish language and culture in Spain 3 times, I lived in the on-campus Hispanic House for a year, I taught arts-enriched English at a camp in Poland for a month, interned at the Spanish Embassy in Washington D.C., took ESL teaching courses, mentored new students transitioning to college, and participated in endless language and culture events. My well-rounded education and experience influences my fun, variety-filled lessons and tutoring approaches! I love to use authentic documents, like movies, music, viral videos, recipes, advertisements, to give students the 'real-world' language learning experience, so they feel confident using their language skills outside of the classroom.
Outside of my passion for languages, I am an avid singer and dancer! I sang in my college choir and oldest acapella group, danced and choreographed in various theatrical productions, and taught ZUMBA at the campus rec center. I sometimes channel audio-visual and kinesthetic learning into my beginner lessons, as I've found them to be the most engaging, effective, and memorable lessons I've experienced.
Overall, I am a passionate linguist willing to work with students of any age, catering to their needs and interests so they can become better learners and lovers of language themselves!
