Education (TJSOL: Teaching Japanese to Speakers of Othe...
Information about Mas
Hello! Im Mas, and Im a native Japanese speaker. I am a male Japanese teacher and, as you may know, male teachers who can teach private lessons in Japanese language are very rare.
Why is gender important?
Japanese is a gendered language in which males and females speak differently. When we learn a new language, we are strongly influenced by speech patterns of our teachers. Therefore, it is important to learn Japanese from a male teacher if you dont want to use feminine language (or vice versa)but surprisingly, this fact has often been omitted in one-on-one Japanese teaching settings.
Who am I?
I am a qualified Japanese teacher who has completed the Japanese teaching certification program at the Department of Education at Soka University in Tokyo, Japan. This program was developed by the leading professors and researchers of Japanese teaching. I acquired innovative teaching methods based on the latest theories of language teaching and learningand these have all been adapted to Japanese language learning for foreign learners.
Availability: I am available between 10am - 8pm but please contact me first.
Note: I`m relocating at the north west of city centre from the end of February. My current location is as it`s registered.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: My other interests? I have practised karate since age six and have a wealth of knowledge about other martial arts such as aikido and kenjutsu (swordsmanship). Im also a big fan of Japanese animation and films, and I always keep myself up to date on popular TV shows.
In my class, I guarantee that you will receive an effective, flexible, and eye-opening Japanese lesson that meets your needs for Japanese.
I accept all students, from Beginner to Advanced levels. You will enjoy immersing yourself in Japanese language from Day 1, regardless of your level.
