About Me

I would describe myself as a curious person. I'm interested in many things.
Traveling is one of my big passions. I have been traveling for 3 consecutive years (28 countries) and I spend a lot of my free time discovering new places. I have lived in Germany for 3 years and Australia for 1 year, so I can teach in Japanese and/or English and in German to a certain extent.

Education

I obtained a bachelor's degree with honors in sociology (emphasis in Japanese as a foreign language). I hold a Japanese language teaching competency certificate as well.

Experience / Qualifications

I'm experienced in teaching students of any age (7 - 80 years) for more than 5 years. I have taught Japanese from beginner to advanced level.

Reviews (7)

Super friendly, flexible and accommodating! I appreciate the corrections of my Japanese and explanations of how to use different words situationally. I look forward to my next class!
Very satisfied with one week sustained session on Japanese essentials with Chihi san. Contents are spot on, method is very adaptable. I felt both challenged, enabled and wishing for more. Just great: I recommend her completely: She tuned in very naturally to my constraints and my learning style, giving me content and foundation I can use immediately, and going the extra mile with research on many small questions I raised all along the way or in between. Planning was also very smooth: She was organised and at the same time very flexible to meet my needs on timing, location , contents etc. I won’t need to look elsewhere on my next learning sessions.
Chihi is an amazing teacher! She can prepare a tailor-made program to help you improve your Japanese skills. Learning Japanese with her is easy and amusing. If you want to progress quickly and have a great time learning Japanese, I strongly recommend her!
Very organised and clear view of how to manage the needs of student.
Sehr nett und geht auf fragen sehr gut ein. Werde definitiv länger mit Chihi meinen Unterricht planen.

Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

Let's study Japanese (Japans) efficiently with Amazon best seller author & a friend of super famous J-POP musicians!
I passed the Japanese teaching test and taught 1000 lessons and have 100 students over the world (including all platforms) so you can have a professional lesson at a reasonable price and we can focus on your personal goal from beginners to fluent speakers. My favorite topics to chat about are J-POP/Rock. I even used to hang out with super famous musicians .I can't tell who they are for their privacy, but we can talk about Japanese music, backstage and Japanese music industry. For beginners, I use teaching materials and focus on the Genki textbook. But I can customize the lesson without it. For JLPT I use a JLPT textbook. I published a book about how to get high scores on exams using only short-term study and it's a best seller on Amazon so I certainly know plenty of tips. Let's study efficiently together! Also, I'm studying Java programming, so I am teaching programming Japanese terms to students. so my lesson helps you to work with Japanese programmers! Me as a Teacher I know many Japanese learners have headaches for particles like the difference between 'が’ and 'は', 'に’and 'で’, 自動詞(はいる)and 他動詞(いれる). As a professional teacher, I am willing to explain and practice with you. The style chart of my lesson is like below. My Lessons & Teaching Style Complete beginner: --->Yes-->Start with the easiest letter.We can order foods in the end of the lesson. (talk about a textbook for next lessons) ---->Yes,but personal purpose&goal--->Let's target to it! Not a complete beginner: -->For travel to JP-->Role play for a variety of travel situations -->JLPT -->N1/N2/N3-->Practicing the exam & discussion based on each level -->JLPT -->N4/N5-->Practicing the exam & conversation based on each level -->Can do daily conversations-->Choose a topic from a list and conversation -->Still learning daily conversations-->Genki textbook and actual conversation based on it(I recommend the textbook but tell me if it's difficult. I can customize the lesson.

Carlotta
Latin tutoring for secondary students (Dutch / Latin / German / English)
Salvē, my name is Carlotta and I have 5 years of experience in tutoring. These now take place in Leuven, where I live in a room, as well as in Maldegem, where I come from. Since April 2022, I have been taking courses in Latin language acquisition at the Schola Latīna, an Italian private school that uses the comprehensible input (CI) method. This means that all classes are taught exclusively in the target language, allowing me to not only translate Latin, but also speak and write Latin. Since no Flemish school expects active language skills, I will of course not do this during the lessons ;) In practice the same problems always return: difficulties with translation, difficulties with memorization of sequences and vocabulary, lack of motivation or fun. When such a fantastic profession is experienced as difficult, it is only logical that motivation also drops. Whatever the problem, Latin itself is a perfectly feasible subject. I also tutored mathematics and noticed that students only have fun when they are no longer struggling, which is what we are working towards :) My goal is to be less needed as quickly as possible by learning and practicing strategies. When you contact us, please state the year the student is in. I provide extra customized material! Cūrā ut valeās, Carlotta

Brigitte
Individualized German Online Tutoring for Business, School and Private
I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.
