Teaching and Tutoring Opprtunities

Students in the Japanese program often have opportunities to teach or tutor English to non-native speakers of English on the campus and at some of sites abroad, such as the English Chat Room at Aoyama Gakuin University. This experience is invaluable for those who hope to teach in Japan after graduating.
