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 is the place to practise speaking Japanese or ask Japanese questions.

Conversation Practice: I correct errors while we are talking about anything we are interested in within the relaxed environment. Due to the nature of the course, this is strongly recommended to intermediate+ learners, who are comfortable to converse only in Japanese.

Ask Japanese questions: I am happy to work with all levels of students and to answer questions related to Japanese language. I can answer the questions either in Japanese or English.

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 used in the lessons are:
・ Minna no Nihongo 初級I&II、中級I&II
・ Genki I & II
・ Japanese for Busy People I&II
・ Japanese for Everyone
・ Nakama (2nd Ed.)
・ Konnichi wa
・ Nihongo So matome N1-N3
・ Year 1-9 Japanese textbooks used schools in Japan
・ 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.
