Class Experience

I have a Bachelor's degree in Japanese and East Asian Studies. While working on my degree, I completed a study program abroad at Nihon University in Tokyo. After graduation I lived and worked in Hokkaido, Japan for 3 years. My job was primarily teaching ESL (English as a Second Language), but I occasionally did some local work as a translator and interpreter. I am currently working towards receiving an N2 certification in the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test).

Homework
Frequency: available upon request
Feedback: available upon request
Details: I will make and provide worksheets after every other class for students to practice the characters they learned. We will go over this homework as a class during the review portion of the following lesson. These worksheets are usually 2-3 pages long.
Students will need a pencil and paper (dotted grid or lined grid paper is recommended, but not required). They should ideally have access to a printer as well for the worksheets. If this is not possible, students could work around this by writing down worksheet answers in their notes.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
