"I get very happy when my students can express what they want to say in their own words in Japanese."
Why did you become a Japanese teacher?
In college, I earned a minor in Japanese language teaching. I thought it would be a job that would allow me to interact with and have interesting conversations with people from all over the world. After working for a general trading company, some time had passed and I decided to try teaching Japanese again.
What do you like about teaching Japanese?
Through conversation lessons, I can share enriching thoughts and experiences with different kinds of people. This is a unique, very valuable and wonderful encounter for me. I get very happy when my students can express what they want to say in their own words in Japanese. Through conversation lessons, I get to exchange so many kinds of thought-provoking and enriching ideas with different kinds of people. To me, these very unique and valuable encounters are really important in that both my students and I can grow from our discussions. It makes me really happy when my students are able to express their thoughts and feelings in their own words in Japanese.
How are your lessons?
Learning a foreign language is sometimes difficult, but don't worry. In my lessons, we will get to know the Japanese language in a relaxed style by going through stories and experiences from your daily life. That way our lessons are set in a context that is familiar to you and will help you to learn the language. Please let me know why you want to learn Japanese. I look forward to helping you reach your language goal soon!
What are your hobbies?
I like reading (including manga!), traveling (both domestic and overseas), and Sado (the Japanese tea ceremony).
I was in the tea ceremony club when I was a college student. Since then, it has become one of my hobbies. Some of the other things I enjoy doing in my free time are going to topical exhibitions, taking walks in and around the city, and speaking with extended family members.
Learn Japanese. Make friends. Enjoy Japan.
