Japanese lessons


10 per session - Virtual OK

Conversation option: We can talk for 20 minutes in Japanese at a beginner or intermediate level.

Grammar option: Tell me a point of grammar you're trying to master, and we'll spend 20 minutes practicing it.

Kanji option: Over the course of 20 minutes, I will teach you a set of kanji new to you including stroke order, radicals and vocab. We will practice these several kanji and prepare review materials or flash cards for later reuse.

Review option: If you tell me a section of a Genki, Intermediate Japanese, or Situational Functional Japanese textbook you want to review, or provide me the topics/vocab/etc., we can review your chosen materials for 20 minutes.

Hilary received Help with Weeding from Iris

Iris is a gardening queen! I am so appreciative of her help, she must have removed about 20 lbs of weeds for me.

About Iris Young

I'm a grad student and I spend way too much time on the computer, so if you can offer me work away from a screen I'll probably do it! I like working with my hands (weeding, cooking, moving furniture) ...but my expertise is in Japanese language, coffee, science and code (python). I can also act as a resource for LGBTQ issues -- in a consulting role or to help out other queer and/or trans folx. show more
