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 Offered
I will make and provide worksheets after most classes for students to practice what they learned. We will go over these worksheets as a class during the review portion of the following lesson. The worksheets are usually 2-3 pages long.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
A written report can be made available at the end of the course upon request (but please let me know if this is what you want before the classes begin, so I can be better equipped to give more detailed feedback).
Grades Offered
 4 files available upon enrollment
Students should come to each class with something to write with and something to write on. For students that are more serious about taking all of my courses, I strongly recommend using folders or a binder to organize printouts and notes between each class section. Students should ideally have access to a printer as well for the worksheets. If this is not possible, they could work around this by writing down worksheet answers in their notes.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
We will play a review game on the last lesson using Kahoot. Kahoot is an Outschool approved third-party tool and students do not need to create their own account. However, please note that for the Kahoot activity it will require students to either open up another tab in their web browser or other smart device.
