About Kara

I am a Japanese teacher who hold a B. Arts in Lang & Ling. / B. Ed (LOTE) and I have teaching/tutoring experience to primary, secondary, tertiary and adult learners.

*Informal Tutoring (WITHOUT Textbooks, Planned Topics or Lesson Plans. This course is targeted ONLY INTERMEDIATE+ learners):

This is the place to practise speaking Japanese or ask Japanese questions. I correct errors while we are talking about anything we are interested in within the relaxed atmosphere. Due to the nature of the course, this is ONLY for INTERMEDIATE+ learners, who are comfortable to converse in Japanese.

*Professional lessons (WITH Lesson Plans and Textbooks/Resources):

They are structural lessons with text books and other supplemental resources. I am flexible to follow students’ existing course books or to plan and provide learning materials based on their requests. However, I will request to share the information with students if I do not hold the textbook. I am also happy to assist with: Homework/Assignments, Proof Reading/Reviewing, Preparation for examinations, etc.

Some of the text books & resources utilised during the lessons are:
・ Minna no Nihongo 初級Iⅈ、中級Iⅈ・ Genki I & II
・ Konnichi wa
・ Nihongo So matome N1-N3
・ Year 1-9 Japanese textbooks used schools in the Japanese education system
・ Newspaper Articles, etc.
I also use a lot of Power Point and Word documents, which explain grammar points, sentence structures, etc. in English.

Languages used during the lessons:

My native tongue is Japanese, but because I am qualified and practised teaching Japanese in Australia, I am more comfortable to explain Japanese in English. However, I can make lessons only in Japanese upon students’ request.
