My name is Masa, I am a 26 year old from Nagano, Japan.
I am a native Japanese speaker, currently living in Newcastle on a working visa.
I have visited about 60 countries so far, and I have experience teaching Japanese in many of them. I taught adults at a Japanese club in Australia as well as children aged 8 to 20 who were studying for the JLPT program in Uzbekistan. I love sharing my language with others and helping people become confident and fluent speakers of Japanese.
I tend to focus on conversational Japanese as it allows you to communicate and understand the culture better. There is a lot to learn, but it is good fun.
I am interested in a lot of things like music, anime, traveling and food, so I am sure we will have something you will like to talk about.
I can also teach you things that you cannot learn in textbooks such as slang and expressions real Japanese people say often.
Of course I can teach you anything else you want know about Japanese.
You can decide which skills you want to practice: listening, speaking, writing and grammar. I normally include all of them in every lesson to make the class more effective, depending on your goals or needs.
I always enjoy teaching and seeing my students improve their Japanese.
If you are interested in Japanese culture, traveling in Japan or Japanese language, please contact me! I am looking forward to hearing from you soon!
Masa is a good friendly tutor who makes lessons fun and easy to remember. I would recommend him as a tutor he is patient, professional and easy going.
