Sobre mí

Hi I'm Sayoko! ūüėäCalm, patient and friendly certified tutor with 7 year of experience ūüéď Fluent in EnglishūüĆć Used to live in U.K, U.S.A and AustraliaūüėäUse Genki textbook mainly.ūüóĺ Born in Tokyo, speak standard accent.ūüß≥ 25 years of experience as a translator of children‚Äôs book from English to Japanese.ūüĎ®ūüŹĽ‚Äćūüéď Completed 420 hours Japanese teacher courseūüėäCompleted more than 1300 online lessons ( at Verbling, Preply and others )

For beginners, I teach Hiragana and Katakana using Google Jamboard, PDF and PTT. After that, I use a textbook 'Genki' and teach you sentence structure and grammar. I often use audio resources in order that you can get used to normal conversation speed and intonation. I also adopt Shadowing method.

*Shadowing is a practice method in which a person listens to the audio and follows immediately what s/he hears, like a ‚Äėshadow‚Äô as faithfully as possible by voicing it. Unlike repeating exercises where a person listen to the audio and repeats it as at his/her own pace.

My hobby:
„ÉĽLearning language (English and Korean): I know how difficult and how fun it is, so I understand your feeling!!
„ÉĽKaraoke: I just love it!!„ÄÄRecently Japanese city pops are so popular in the world. If you want to know the lyrics I will help you.
„ÉĽTraveling : After the pandemic, I will travel all over the world!!

I am a passionate and friendly teacher. I love to interact with students and see their process of learning. All students say that they feel confident and encouraged to speak smoothly after my lessons.
I am looking forward to seeing you in the lesson!!
