Sydney Tutor in Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese Extension (HSC), (NSW Qualified Teacher)
(4 student reviews)
I teach Japanese and Chinese at all levels and all age group.
I was chosen as the interpreter for the Asian Games 1994 in Hiroshima - Japan.
I'm anchorwoman at 2CR China Radio Network P/L since - 1997-current.
I started tutoring Japanese and Chinese in Sydney in 1997.
Most HSC students I've taught achieved 90 and above in the HSC (given they did not start tutoring at the last minute).
I also have a degree from UNSW for language teaching.
Before I came to Australia, I lived in Japan (Hiroshima) for 6 years. There I taught Chinese (Mandarin & Cantonese) at the Japanese Foundation YMCA.
For school and university students, I will also assist with homework, assessments, preparation for examinations and answer any questions they may have.
I'm a firm believer that pronunciation accuracy in communicative language learning is most important, therefore I focus heavily on pronunciation.
I teach all areas including listening, reading, speaking and writing.
During the 1994 Asian Games in Hiroshima Japan, I provided translation services for the athletes coming from China and Taiwan. Also in Japan I've trained many people in Chinese conversation, culture and customs, including executives from NKK (NihonKouKan) to prepare them for new assignments in China.
I also prepare people who are hoping to participate in the " Japanese-Language Proficiency Test". This examination has 5 levels of difficulty. The certificate is internationally recognized and I highly recommend anyone studying Japanese to attempt the proficiency test as it will be highly beneficial for work or study in Japan.
