- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started teaching by chance. When I was at University of Geneva, I taught French at Ecole Lemania to foreign students as a side job. I learned that I really enjoyed teaching, and ever since I have continued tutoring and coaching. I'm also a grammar nerd, so I love answering to students' questions, who sometime make me realize new grammar angles. I have taught to class rooms, but I decided to teach private lessons (or groups of 2) only, because it allows me to adjust my lessons to each student's needs. This makes every lesson exciting for me too, because they are all different and I don't have to stick to a textbook only. My lessons are 100% tailor-made for my students, so I enjoy preparing each lesson. I am always researching new materials, new ways to structure my lessons.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I worked as an interpreter and cultural consultant for a TV show on Vice media for their Japan episode. Working with such a creative team was inspiring and I'm excited to keep working with people like this. I also worked with Airbnb to promote their new Experiences service. Hired as a Japanese cultural expert, I helped them curate and co-host their promotional tour of Tokyo.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
As you try to find the right tutor, ask yourself these questions. 1. Do you get a good feeling from your teacher? 2. Does your teacher enjoy teaching? 3. Are your teacher's explanations easy to follow? 4. Is your teacher listening to your feedback and requests? 5. Does your teacher motivate you and keep track of your progress? 6. Are you pushed enough by your teacher? 7. Do you feel your teacher is adapting every lesson to your particular needs?
