I’m Risho and I’m a Chinese tutor. I’m from Bejing, China, but I have been living in Japan for 20 years.
I first started teaching Chinese when I was an exchange student at a Japanese university. I fell in love with the work and gained 10 years of experience before I knew it. I worked both at Japanese and Chinese companies and that experience helps me in my current job as a Chinese tutor.
I majored in cross cultural communication at a graduate school in Japan. I include elements of my own research on Japanese and Chinese culture differences into the lessons. That way, not only will you learn the language, but you will also be introduced to the culture that acts as its backdrop.
In addition to Chinese pronunciation, grammar, and daily conversation lessons, I also have experience teaching lessons on idioms, Chinese poetry, and work culture differences in Japan and China.
Recently, I have been teaching Chinese to my children who were born and raised in Japan, so I have gained experience teaching “Kid’s Chinese” lessons at home. In the future, I hope to put more strength into my children’s lessons on top of teaching lessons to adults.
〜I have the following qualifications:〜
・Japanese Language Proficiency Test Level 1
・JETRO Business Japanese Proficiency Test J1+
・Jetro Oral Communication Test A
・Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test (Japanese Teaching Certification)
My classes will be held primarily in Chinese, but if you are having trouble understanding a certain section, I will patiently explain in Japanese until you fully understand it.

Q.
