About Me

I have been teaching Japanese privately at home since I firstly taught Japanese to my German friend in 2016. Then I decided to get certified as a professional Japanese teacher. I started the 420 hour course of advanced Japanese teacher training course and completed all requirements in 2019. After that, I started online Japanese teaching for kids to adults, from a beginner level to an advanced level. I have already done 500 lessons.
I am a passionate and friendly teacher and always have built a good relationship with students. I love to interact with students and see their process of learning. All students say that they feel confident and encouraged to speak freely after my lessons.

My teaching approach:
For a beginner to intermediate learner:
・I teach you Hiragana and Katakana with flashcards and charts.
・I introduce you a few sentence patterns every lesson and make you practice the usage in line with Minna no Nihongo or Marugoto.

For learners who want to practice conversation:
・Please let me know your desired topic and I will make a plan based on it or I will choose topics.

For learners who want me to check your writing or reports:
・Please send it to me beforehand in order that I can check it before the lesson.

For learners who want to pronounce correct Japanese:
・First I will read a teaching material, record it and send it to you.
Then you practice reading it and send me back the file you have recorded.
I will check it at the lesson.
