About Tutor

I love learning new languages, as well as sharing them. Learning English and Japanese as a native Vietnamese speaker has given me new, unthinkable aspects on countries's cultures, language, people,etc. These completely different languages each have their own difficulties that I had to try my best to overcome. Which is really satisfying as I really love challenge.

The best things that I get from sharing languages is that I can share my hobbies and passion with friends from all over the world. Like the fact that I really love dogs! And Kendo! And baking! And....

Experience

I have been teaching English for 7 years and Japanese, Vietnamese for 1 year. My students range from primary school students to office workers. Most of the time I work as a home tutor.

Teaching Approach

1/ Student-Centered Approach
I believe teachers and students play an equally active role in the learning process. That means my students can chose to learn from one of my recommend textbooks and materials which they feel interested in.

2/ Flexibility
As the teacher’s primary role is to coach student learning and overall comprehension of material, the lesson will changed continuously according to the student's development.

3/ Practical
The best way of learning an language is to use it. Therefore, I try to explain to my students new words and new sayings repeatedly and encourage them to use it as much as they can.
