I teach Japanese mainly for communication purposes. I believe that learning to communicate effectively in a language will help students to maintain focus and stay motivated. I love to introduce students to Japanese culture and I believe that learning a language gives us another sense from which to view the world around us. I tailor my lessons to suit the needs of my students, including teaching hiragana, katakana and kanji, grammar, speaking, listening, reading, writing and pronunciation.
I am a qualified teacher with a Masters Degree of Teaching from the University of Melbourne, specialising in teaching Modern Languages. I've been teaching at schools and developing curriculum since 2016, as well as tutoring privately since 2010. I studied a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Japanese at the University of Melbourne. I also teach piano and music theory, as well as tutoring Spanish.

Stephanie is a highly professional and passionate teacher of both music and languages. She keeps her own knowledge up to date and relevant and imparts a strong sense of her love of learning to her students.
Her lessons are fun and engaging as well as being serious with the expectation that students of all ages take responsibility for their own learning by practicing regularly.
She is a warm and engaging teacher.
Steph taught my daughter piano lessons for from the age of 6 to 9 years old. She instilled in my daughter such a love of music from the very beginning that my daughter begged me to have longer lessons! Steph showed utmost dedication in getting my daughter ready for her first piano exam which she received a first class honours, but more importantly she was able to adapt her style of teaching and the type of music my daughter learned as she grew and changed her interest. For example whilst my daughter focussed on classical songs to start, by the end of her tuition she was playing pop songs that she had chosen herself.
Steph’s incredible piano teaching skills lie not only in her outstanding ability to teach the technical aspects of piano playing, but even more so in her ability to connect with her students on an individual level and empower them to develop both their love and skills for piano playing.
