Making my students happy, motivated to learn Japanese and meeting their requirements, needs and targets are the important issues. After all, my first priory is to make them enjoy their lessons. To achieve the above, I make sure to pay closely attention to individuals so that I can provide them with not only Japanese languges and Culture but also joy, inspiration, encouragement and motivation in a friendly manner. What is more, I employ the diversity of teaching methords to each student.
For those who are just interested in Japanese languaes, cultures such as rich food, the diversity of music, anime and manga, life styles etc. Just teach how to write , read and speak Japanese. Forcus on individuals’ needs and desires. Using text books called ” Marugoto”, Minna no nihongo” “Japanese for busy people”. There are many other books and materials available.
For those who are aiming to take examinations such as GCSE, IB and JLPT. Assist succesfully to pass the exams they want to take, using the appropriate text books and the past examination papers. Concentrate on improving various Japanese language skills of each student focusing on Writing, Reading, Listening and Speaking (depends on which exam to take) according to each examination borad’s specification.
Mieko san has been tutoring me for 9 years, guiding me through the JLPT exams and helping me improve and maintain my daily Japanese. I am challenged and motivated by her teaching methords. She constantly includes aspects of Japanese culture that I am interested in in our lessons and homework, catching my interest and helping me learn vacabulary that is useful to me. On top of this she is kind and conscienous in her teaching and has become a valuable and cherished friend.
“Very good teacher! Very understanding and offers detailed and comprehensive lessons, would recommend to anyone interested in learning Japanese”
“Mieko is a kind, patient teacher who does her best to equip her students with the knowledge they need, at their own pace. The lessons are fun, reasonably priced and you learn a lot about the Japanaese language and facets of the culture you might have not heard before.
