About chihiro_ito<My Background>
I started teaching Japanese three years ago, after I moved to the US. I have taught more than ten students including both online and offline, from novice to advanced.
I educated myself to be a teacher and earned a certificate for teaching Japanese in 2011.
In university, I majored in Japanese history and finished the graduate school in the same major. At the same time, I helped international students to write academic essays in Japanese.
After finishing the school, I worked for two years as an administration staff in a Japanese language school in Osaka.
Levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced
We will focus on conversation practice without textbook and less homework.
The lesson will include both casual conversation and role-play.
Grammar and vocabulary may be introduced as necessary, but not officially covered in this class.
-Integrated Japanese course using textbook
Beginner : "Minna no Nihongo" "GENKI" or "Japanese for busy people"
Intermediate: "Minna no Nihongo <Chukyu>" "Chukyu no Nihongo"
This course is good for students who is seriously learning, especially for those who started by themselves or took courses in school but found difficulty.
I will explain grammar, vocabulary, culture with easy examples.
Homework, such as writing and workbook, are corrected without extra charge via email.
To make the most of the classes, at least 1 hour per week would be good.
