Lily_sensei Tutor Profile

Hello everyone!

I am a Japanese and Chinese teacher who strives to keep lessons easy, but detailed.

I will help you change your attitude from “I guess I'll try….” to  “I know I can!!”

There are 3 important things when it comes to language learning.

The first is being consistent.

Slow and steady wins the race. Staying consistent is even harder than working hard or trying something new. But when something is fun, you want to keep going, right? That’s why it's so important to find a study method that is fun and easy for you stick with. I recommend linking your studies to your likes and interests.

The second is finding someone who will teach you how to speak properly.

Learning the basics (pronunciation, grammar) is a given, but it's also very important to find someone who will correct what you say into correct and proper language. Do the people around you correct your errors? When learning a language, it's very important to find people who will teach you how to use the language correctly. If you have people point out where you made mistakes and how to revise them, your language skills will improve without a doubt. 

The third is getting to know the culture behind the language

When studying a foreign language, you can also learn about that country's culture and history at the same time. The more you study that language, the more you will learn about the country, and the more you'll come to understand it. Knowing the culture will help you improve and broaden your skills in the language itself. There are all sorts of discoveries to be made. 

There's so much to learn from studying a foreign language! 

I believe that I have language learning to thank for most of what I know and many of the chances I've been given.

Although we live in an age where everyone has instant access to information on the internet, meeting new people and learning new things as you talk to them is not only a great way to gain knowledge and improve your communication skills, but it also helps you become more open to others.

I strongly believe that meeting so many people and learning so many things (about culture, language) has helped me become more rounded out as a person.

I am sincerely looking forward to meeting you! Mahalo!

**********My Lesson Style**********************

  • I can speak standard Japanese and Osaka-ben. My lessons are given in correct (standard) Japanese
  • Please let me know if you have a specific topic or idea you'd like to discuss. I can customize your lessons. I will create the class material and send it to you before class. *Please consult with me in advance via message or counseling session
  • I take full advantage of Skype's screen share and chat memo functions. After the lesson, I will also send you written feedback to help you review what you learned. *I send sound files (MP3) to help you practice, upon request.
  • I will explain pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, etc. in detail, but in a way that is easy to understand. Please don’t hesitate to ask me questions if you get confused.
  • My ultimate goal to to make language learning fun. My lessons are set up so that anyone from complete beginners to total veterans can enjoy themselves.
