We talk over video call, and prepare the text beforehand and I will add some explanation in English if necessary.
I am very friendly and responsible Japanese currently living close to Tokyo. Since I do like to teach Japanese language to whoever willing to study, know, I am willing to offer Japanese lesson to whoever want to study the same language. Although I do not have any working experience as a Japanese tutor before, but I have taught to many overseas foreigners even for now. As a matter of fact, I am teaching to one Hong Kong guy and I am teaching him by using English, but he says he is fully understanding my lesson and satisfied with my lesson so far. Since I can also speak fluent English, even though we faced some problems during the lesson, I am pretty sure I can explain the details in English, too until you understand 100%.
