I'm an experienced teacher both in class room and online!
Hi, my name is Chihiro. I live in Japan now.
I have lived three countries before, in the Philippines, Germany and Mexico. I LOVE to know the history and culture of other countries. That's the reason why I love to teach Japanese because I can meet new people and hear interesting stories in the class.
◆Career as a teacher◆
I started my career as a Japanese teacher in Mexico and worked in a language school for one and half year. I have certification of "the Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test" which is one of the requirements to teach Japanese in Japan. Furthermore, I have a teaching license of English in junior high school and secondly school. Since I worked Japanese company in sales department, I can also teach the culture of Japanese company.
Basically I will use Japanese as a teaching language, but depend on your level, it is possible to teach in English and Spanish.
In my class, I will make you speak Japanese as much as posible. It’s very important to learn grammar and memorize vocabularies, but also you need to practice in order to be able to speak. Let’s speak about yourself, using the grammar and vocabularies that you have already learnt and do not be afraid to make mistakes.
My class is available only with 10 packages maximum.
Beginner students; we will use a textbook (Genki or Marugoto).
Intermediate and Advanced students; we will practice mainly speaking and writing, using daily topics.
