Fun lessons with a fluent teacher - target those tricky bits with card games, focused activities, exercises in verbal, written and spoken skills, designed for the needs, interests, and individual learning styles of each student. Enjoy fun with a great language, or target those areas that need extra work in ways that take the hard work out of learning.
I have been teaching languages for 20 years, with students of all ages, needs, and group sizes, from pre-school fun through to HSC exams and beyond. I have designed courses to suit the individual in Australia and Japan, including whatever is required, from the letters and characters, speaking and listening skills, reading and writing, to cross-cultural activities. I lived in Japan for many years.
