I will need to bring my 5 year old son. He conducts himself very well and will not disturb the study session.

About

From experience, students with learning difficulties need more time to process information. As a tutor, my objective is to help my students overcome their learning difficulties with utmost care and find suitable ways to improve their confidence in order to improve their foundation skills on the subject matter.

I work on the student's pace. My approach is to ask questions, trying to get to know my students and their way of thinking or seeing things. I do my explanations around the student's level of understanding. I make my students solve the test questions themselves whilst observing and giving them some guidance, instead of showing them the solutions. That way, they would learn the process on how to figure things out themselves.

I can read and write all hiragana, all katakana, and about 150 kanji so far (I haven't really pushed myself to do more). Having said that, I have many good references that I can taught you with. I was living in Japan, speaking only Japanese for 3 months and I still write to my Japanese friends.
