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 (6)

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.
Chihi is an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher! I started learning from scratch, and she improved my Japanese language skills on a conversational level, and formal written and reading. I could navigate everyday life in Japan easier with the basic skills she helped me learn. Our lessons were always fun and enjoyable, and often with some laughs! I highly recommend Chihi as a Japanese teacher.

Dynamic Dutch courses with a smiling native speaker ;-)
I use several methods which are specially conceived to teach Dutch to people who have a different mother tongue. I really like to use methods out of the ordinary like role games or methods with which you learn while playing. All these adapted to the student's situation of course. As I learned myself a couple of other languages, it is easy for me to detect difficulties a student can encounter and adapt the way of learning. I can teach in English, French, German and Russian.

Mariam
Moroccan Arabic (darija) tutor - learning darija, Moroccan dialect- grammar-speaking- writing
Hello, My name is Mariam, from Morocco. I majored in English studies and I was an English teacher for children and also a language and cultural facilitator with the peace corps, where I taught Moroccan Arabic to American volunteers and the Moroccan culture also. I have learned a lot on how to teach Moroccan Arabic to non-natives, with a lot of materials for different kind of learners. I can also help if you want to practice using standard Arabic. If you have any questions let me know, I would be glad to help.

Kevin
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.

Xavier
REVIEW ESO AND BACHILLERATO (SOCIAL AND HUMANITIES). ENGLISH
BACHELOR REVIEW classes (Social, Humanities), English, Catalan, Philosophy, Literature, History ... AND THAT. More than 20 years giving individual and small group classes in English, Spanish and Catalan. Academies and online. My name is Xavier. I was born in Barcelona ... a long time ago. I grow up in this town, but now I live a bit far from here. I studied at the University of Barcelona and in Huddersfield (near Shefield, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, ... not very far from York: quite nice places and better people), and I've been teaching Catalan, Spanish, Philosofy , History and English for a long time ... since I was 16. What happened? Very short, I promise: I was walking down the street two years ago, from just opposite this private school, and I thought myself: well, you might enter this place and see. I like English language very much ... and the UK, ... but I don't have a poster of the Queen on my bedroom's wall. It was a sort of a blind date. And there she was: her smile, her diligence, effectiveness. Eva listened to me. And after two weeks she was texting me for a class. "Please, Xavier, can you cover for some classes?" And here I am. (That was two years and a half ago, at the Academy English Studio where I have been an English teacher for more than two years, untill 13th March, when the lady in charge said literally that she would pass my 59 students to another teacher because I had no Internet at home, as I had recently moved to another town and had not had time to set the Internet, and nobody could have possibly known about that horrible and destructive confinement). More than 20 years teaching and learning with my students. Online classes. Spanish and Catalan teacher, too.

Beginner and intermediate Italian courses (A1-B1), learning the Italian language
This course is for beginners and intermediates, from level A1 to B1. I adapt it to the profile of each one after having assessed the faculties present and the points to be reinforced. The course is mainly focused on oral practice and listening comprehension of Italian, including the necessary theoretical points if necessary. Each lesson is built with the learner for a specific goal to achieve. I try to deliver accurate feedback at the end of each class. Feel free to contact me for more information.
