About julianmatthews

I work at a tutoring company based in Japan that prepares and sends students to prep schools internationally. My job there as a tutoring mentor consists of preparing students for their foreign exchange, whether it be through academics, emotional, language, or cultural contexts. The first thing that I always ask when I go into tutoring students is what they like, not just academically, but actually what do they enjoy? Some parents may find this approach to be strange, but this conversation acts as a stepping stone in getting to know each individual student, and it ultimately leads to students trusting me enough to be honest about their dreams and goals. As soon as the students are convinced that academics are tools for achieving their dreams, the rate at which they begin to absorb is always astonishing. After successes in sending 30+ students into each of their respective dream schools, I realized tutoring is not just a job for me, but a responsibility shadowed as an outlet for awakening possibility in students. During my sessions, I will speak to students mostly in Japanese to increase exposure. I strongly believe it helps improve fluency effectively. I will definitely explain in English whenever needed. I welcome all levels from beginners to advanced. I will first speak with the student and design sessions that best suit; whether it be an emphasis on business interviews in Japan or simply writing a letter to a childhood friend.
