Personal Description:
My name is Simon and I am a graduate from the University of Leeds with a strong 1st class degree in Japanese, Russian and Ukrainian languages. I am also educated in the Spanish language and play the piano to grade 8 level. I have completed my MA in Japanese cultural studies and now I am undertaking a PhD in Japanese focussing on the international reception of modern Japanese popular culture.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught all three languages, Japanese, Russian and Ukrainian to all levels to various age groups in preparation for exams and or general study for the students own pleasure. I am able to advise on proper essay style for assignments for all levels ranging from primary to university education.

Whilst studying abroad in Japan and Russia as part of my formal studies I taught English as a foreign language in Konan University situated in Kobe, Japan and in Moscow state university in Moscow, thus I am more than prepared and understand the requirements of language learning both from a native speaker level and as a student.

Having lived in both Japan and Russia I am also very aware and competent with colloquial Japanese and Russian language and am prepared to teach both formal language and once a grasp of the language has been achieved I can move onto more colloquial language skills to speak like a true native speaker

Tutoring Approach:

I tutor in a relaxed environment tailored to each individual student's needs and wishes.I will then help the tutee create a work plan, and work through all areas that need attention.

I feel it is important to target the areas in which a student needs and or wishes to improve in so as to boost confidence. Regarding language study, I firmly believe that self confidence is one of the most important aspects to understand so that steps towards fluency can be achieved.

I am friendly, patient and understanding, and appreciate that everyone works at a different pace.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate of Japanese from the University of Leeds, where I studied both Japanese language and culture. As part of my degree I was able to study at a University in Tokyo for a year, and I also lived there teaching English on my gap year. I love Japan and really enjoyed living in such an amazing country. I want to open the door for others to learn Japanese and be able to go there and fulfil their dreams too.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching both Japanese to English speakers and English to Japanese speakers. I taught a Japanese course for GCSE students at a secondary school in Castleford, near Leeds, while I was doing my degree. We covered basic conversation, grammar and writing skills, and by the end of the course my students were able to hold basic conversations and use key vocabulary and phrases confidently.
I taught one-to-one business English at Gaba, a highly-regarded school in Tokyo, on my gap year, and on my year abroad I taught conversational English at Tokyo Women's Christian University, and also to private students.
All these experiences have given me insight into how to tailor lessons to the individual needs of students and how to teach effectively and helpfully.

Tutoring Approach:

I absolutely love teaching Japanese, and I think that's because I love studying Japanese. When I teach I create a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere where there is no pressure, so the student and I can talk and study naturally. Making mistakes is how you learn, so I encourage my students to try their best, even if they are not confident, and then we can review any mistakes that were made. I believe that grammatical and written skills should be developed hand-in-hand with speaking practice, so I will provide thorough tutoring in all areas of language learning. I am very friendly, and am a good listener. I endeavour to help students achieve their goals, and all I ask in return is that you try your best.

Personal Description:
I am a Japanese national who has completed three Japanese language beginners courses (10 weeks each) as a language instructor at colleges based in Liverpool and Manchester. In a formal course review exercise, I received excellent ratings from my college students with respect to the various teaching components of the course.

I am adept at recognising how best to target my teaching approach, particularly with respect to students who have little or no knowledge of the Japanese language using my fluency in verbal and written English and Japanese.

My teaching experience includes 18 months as a language instructor to college students in Japan, in one-to-one, and group teaching as an employee at a language school. In addition, I was employed in the Japan university sector as a translator of English to Japanese and vice versa, and as a business translator involving UK and Japanese companies. I therefore have language teaching experience acquired over several years in various settings.

My doctoral degree is sociology-based supporting the teacher-student interaction for making solid progress in learning.

Teaching Experience:

30 weeks in beginners Japanese at language colleges in Liverpool and Manchester
12 months providing English language instruction to college students in Japan
18 months English-Japanese language translator at a Japanese University
UK-Japanese business language interpreter and translator
Multiple students taught in private sessions from a wide background that includes the military, police, teachers, business professionals, university and college students, and other backgrounds.

Tutoring Approach:

I can provide personal tutoring and group tutoring as required in a large classroom specially set-up for teaching with an approachable and friendly style to engage students in fully comprehending an unfamiliar language. Tuition is provided in verbal and written Japanese using language props as an aid to understanding, with textbooks and specialist Hiragana teaching materials. I have excellent whiteboard writing skills and I am comfortable at teaching in both formal and less formal surroundings. Tuition can be arranged on a regular or irregular timetable according to the needs of the particular student(s).

I took a night class for Japanese and have attained a A* GCSE and I have various Asset language certificates up to level 8 in Japanese.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught others Japanese around the ages of 14-20 and with the age groups I have managed to relate with my pupils. I have done this for around 6 months with Japanese.

Personal Description:
I grew up in Japan, and have worked there for 1 year, and 2 years in Taiwan, so I have a good command of Japanese and Mandarin. I have the advantage over native speakers of having mastered them as a foreign language for myself, so I know from experience how to teach it.

I enjoy spending time with people, teaching, and passing on whatever knowledge I have, helping them improve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

2 years teaching teaching Japanese and Chinese to students one-to-one, and in small groups, from 5 years old to adult. I have also taught some lessons for the Japan Foundation in London.
1 year teaching in a Senior High School in Japan
2 years teaching in a Language school in Taiwan.
2 months teaching in Brighton.
2 years teaching one to one English.
Over 10 years as a language learner, so I have been in your shoes, and can share the innovative techniques and memorization methods I've used.

Tutoring Approach:

Student of Chinese said, "Ali tailored the lessons very well and ensured that learning Chinese from scratch was not intimidating. The resources were excellent with varied activities, and there was a lot of out of classroom support. I have enjoyed the lessons immensely and it has inspired me to continue learning Chinese. I would wholeheartedly recommend Ali as a teacher."
I will help you with your reading, writing, speaking, and listening, and have tricks to help you remember the written scripts easily.
With years of experience teaching foreign languages, I tailor your lessons to your needs, learning style, interests, and goals. I use varied resources, activities and role-plays allowing maximum participation, and an enjoyable, and effective learning environment.
Please contact me for more information, or more testimonies.

Personal Description:
I am a professional tutor with a university degree in teaching and nearly 20 years of experience.

I`m doing my PhD research in Japanese Cultural Studies/Social Anthropology of Japan at SOAS, University of London. Before that I studied in Osaka University for Foreign Studies on a scholarship from the Japanese Ministry of Education, a reward for getting from scratch to JLPT level 1 in just over 3 years.

Teaching Experience:

I tutor Sociology, Anthropology and the Japanese language for A-levels and GSCE, and I also mentor undergrads, MA`s and junior PhD students. I can help you with essays, exams, dissertation writing, managing studies schedule, research techniques, etc.

I am also a certified Cross-Cultural Trainer, I coach business people on the practical aspects of doing business with the Japanese.

Tutoring Approach:

Social sciences are complex but should not be complicated. Any Social Theory concept can make sense by way of metaphors, similes and real-life study cases. One of my greatest joys in life is witnessing my students' light-bulb moments.

Japanese is very logical, almost like maths. Having studied all aspects of Japanese as a foreign language, I believe I can explain Japanese grammar and kanji better than any native.

Flexible availability. Travel arrangements to be negotiated.

Nice to meet you! I'm Rebecca; I'm 25 years old and graduated from Bangor University with a BSc in Psychology with Clinical and Health Psychology. After university I spent a year as a specialist support worker for adults with autism and autistic traits. Following this, I spent nearly 2 years teaching English as a foreign language in Japan. Whilst in Japan, I also learnt how to speak conversational Japanese, and can also read and write hiragana, katakana, and first-grade level kanji. I now tutor English and Japanese, and have recently registered my own language services company that will provide courses in English as a foreign language aimed at those wishing to pass their UK citizenship exam. Private English and Japanese lessons are also being run as usual.

I welcome any students with special needs; I have vast experience in the Psychological field and work well with anyone who needs that little bit of extra help and attention! I also work great with kids who need help boosting their English and Maths at school- in the last year one of my 5-year-old student's grades have gone from below average to excellent in their school report.

Please note: if you would like me to teach at your home or meet somewhere public, I do charge extra to cover my travel costs (30p per mile).

Teaching Experience:

My main teaching experience includes the 2 years I spent teaching English as a foreign language in Japan. I designed the yearly teaching schedules, lesson plans, and then taught the lessons. My students were from the age of 3 to 65, so I have experience in teaching all ages. Whilst in Japan I also taught beginner's Japanese to foreigners living in my local area.

Since returning to England I tutor English and Japanese; I have also been teaching one of my younger students English, Math, and other related subjects required for primary school.

At university I volunteered for several groups including an activity group for disadvantaged children, assisting in secondary school classrooms, volunteering at the local mental health unit and volunteering as a charity shop assistant.

Prior to this, I often tutored my younger sister (who has Asperger's Syndrome) and helped her to understand her school work. I have also clocked up countless hours of babysitting for parents around the local area.

Tutoring Approach:

For teaching English as a foreign language, or when teaching Japanese, I believe a fun, active approach is the most effective. A short amount of time is spent drilling sentences and words; but then these new words and phrases should be used in role plays, games, or challenges to make the new vocabulary stick.

When teaching English, debates about the subject material cause important points to be remembered, help students to structure their arguments more clearly, and let students consider what the most important points are and consider counter arguments. Games for younger children and a variety of different activities to help enforce new vocabulary and sentences are also important.

Personal Description:
Hi , I am Flore and I am a native French speaker. I studied for a Masters degree in Financial Management at the University of West England (UWE) Bristol. Prior to this I lived in Japan where I taught French to Japanese professionals and school students for over 5 years.

I am currently teaching French to different types of learners including British professionals of all levels, students for A-levels or GCSE and children aged 8 to 12 years old.

-------------------------------------------JAPANESE ----------------------------------------------------------

Freelance Japanese tutor

-Over 2 years of teaching experience with beginners to intermediate level.
-Holder of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) level 1 (highest level)
-Fluent in Japanese and holder of a 1-year intensive Japanese course taken in Japan.
-Holder of Bachelors and associate degrees taught in Japanese and obtained from Tokyo International University

My technique consists in minimising English as much as possible.
This is the way I was taught Japanese. I have very comprehensive textbooks and activity books which enable that method.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important ingredient of the lessons is that they are fun and designed to equip the students with resourceful knowledge. My method is as follows:

-Assess the students' abilities and interests and tailor lessons to meet their needs
-Use flash cards, interactive games, songs (for children) , TV show extracts ( for listening practice)
-Lesson time involves 30% use of material suited to the lesson purpose, 40% oral practice (depending on the student`s needs) and 30% used to cover other areas such as grammar and homework correction.
-Lessons are interactive and include role playing where students engage in building sentences using the newly taught vocabulary and grammar items.

Personal Description:
I have recently started my course in Japanese and Linguistics and the University of Edinburgh. I am a native Japanese speaker and have lived in Sendai for 7 years before coming to school in England at the age of 11. I have a passion for the Japanese language and aspire to be a Japanese teacher after my course at university.

Teaching Experience:

My interpersonal skills have greatly improved through my voluntary work as a language tutor at schools and through my position as an organiser for various school and charity events. I have also had experience teaching English to a nursery school in Belgium and working as a teaching assistant in Spanish at Summercroft Primary School in Bishop's Stortford.

Last summer I completed three weeks of voluntary work at a school in India, which greatly enhanced my sense of responsibility, initiative and patience. My teaching skills greatly improved as I taught the students English and drama, despite having to face numerous awkward situations as a result of language and cultural differences.

Tutoring Approach:

My experience as a boarder at Hockerill College has taught me how to live and interact with others and has made me the friendly and approachable person that I am today. Although I am aware at how tough the Japanese language can be, from personal experience, I am also aware that you must enjoy the language and want to learn it in order to achieve the best. Therefore my aim would be to not only teach the student the syllabus in the book, but also include knowledge from my previous experiences and love for Japanese to hopefully make the student love it too.

Personal Description:
I began having Japanese lessons at school when I was eleven years old and continued to study the language for a further seven years. I completed GCSE Japanese- A* and GCE A Level Japanese-B before coming to the University of Leeds to study BA Japanese and Philosophy.
I have been lucky enough to have visited Osaka as an exchange student during my A-Level studies and also to have co-hosted an exchange student. These experiences were key in making me want to pursue learning Japanese as well as teach others about the language and culture.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught beginner Japanese lessons in primary schools and at my previous school supported secondary students with their Japanese studies. During my time in Japan I was able to assist Japanese friends at school with their learning of English as well as teach my host family key English phrases.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning a new language should be interactive and enjoyable. I encourage students to get stuck in and be prepared to learn from mistakes in order to develop a thorough understanding and sound knowledge of Japanese. The benefit of studying Japanese creatively and through the use of games, flashcards and evaluative quizzes is a relaxed approach to study and in my experience, steady achievement.

Like any language, when learning Japanese, practice makes perfect so lessons are at a pace ideal for the student in order to maximize progress. A balanced approach to both writing, reading and speaking are essential so I am keen to deliver a variety of exercises in lessons.

Most importantly I want students to enjoy learning Japanese as much as I love to teach it.

Personal Description:
I lived in Japan from 2008 until 2013 and have studied Japanese for about 6 years at this point. I achieved the JLPT level 2 in 2012. I am currently studying towards the highest level of Japanese proficiency. I have an honors degree in Computing Science from the University of Glasgow.

Teaching Experience:

I taught as an English teacher full-time in Japanese Primary and Middle Schools during my time in Japan (2008 - 2013). During my time in Japan I also did some tutoring of people studying for the JLPT Japanese test.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a Jeet Kune Do approach to tutoring. Not all students require or respond to the same teaching methods as others. My first step is identifying the goals of the student (to speak casual Japanese, be able to read manga, pass JLPT level 3 etc) and then find what methods work well for them. I have used many different methods in my study of Japanese but I am not limited to those methods. For example, I learned Japanese kanji characters by a flashcard method that I developed for myself, but I have found that many people respond better to writing the characters down to learn them. I am flexible and willing to try whatever techniques the student excels with.

Personal Description:
I am an Italian native speaker currently reading for a doctorate in Japanese studies at the University of Oxford. Other than my native language, I can tutor in Japanese (10 years of studying plus highest proficiency certificate), German (12 years), French (4 years) Latin and ancient Greek (5 years respectively).

Given my different background in European as well as in Oriental studies, I am also available to tutor in a wide range of humanistic subjects, from history (western and eastern, classic and contemporary) to literature (English, American, italian, Japanese, German, French and classics). Furthermore, having been a university student, and an aspiring writer for a long time now, I am able to give advice and tutor in writing for school and university, as well as in general structure and grammar, both in English and in the above languages.

Apart from academics, my interests are cinema, books, comics, comedy, drawing, painting and sports. If you share my interests, or have other, it will be fun to talk about them in our classes.

Teaching Experience:

In the academic year 2011-2012, I taught and tutored in Italian at Smith College, Massachusetts, to advanced students and first-years. I tailored the lessons to the students' specific needs and any questions they might have. I also organised conversation groups with the first-years as well as introducing specific aspects of Italian culture, such as songs, food, and historical representations.

At Smith, I was responsible for privately tutoring Professor Susan Etheredge generally in the Italian language, as well as assisting her with written formal reports she would need for academic presentations in front of an Italian audience.

I have taught a variety of languages in different countries and settings. I have privately taught Italian, English and Japanese from 2003 to high-school and university students, and people with casual interest and different levels of knowledge.

I also tutor and give advice in academic writing and professional writing to university students in English and Italian.

Tutoring Approach:

Languages are multi-faceted living things that evolve constantly. That is why, in my lessons, I want to be as flexible and tailor the approach to the tutee's needs. Given that grammar is a fundamental aspect of the language, I would like to present it not as a boring, monolithic block that needs to be remembered mechanically, but instead as a tool with which a person can say in another language whatever he says in his/her own native one. We can tell the same English jokes in Italian, and talk about our favourite German book in Japanese. The language is out there for us to use it.

I would craft my lessons so to give students a solid background in the structure and grammar of the language (or history, literature, etc.) and then move on to the tutee's field of interest to expand vocabulary and mastery of the structure. That is because I believe that it is easier, and more fun, to learn about the things we like, rather than being stuck with sources that do not awaken our interest.

Also, since any language is the mirror of a people, it will be interesting to integrate the lessons with news and discussions about the cultural aspects (movies, music, history, food, sports and the like) that are expressed in that particular language.
