"I want my students to speak as much as possible in my lessons. That is the best way to learn, even if you make mistakes."

Q: How are your lessons?

I think I am a good listener, so I want my students to speak as much as possible in my lessons. That is the best way to learn, even if you make mistakes. My friends often say that they feel comfortable speaking freely and openly about anything with me and I want my students to feel the same way. I look forward to hearing from you about anything you want to talk about! Let’s practice and use the phrases you learned in class so you can make them your own!

Q: Why did you become a teacher?

The reason I became a Japanese teacher is a bit of an embarrassing story from when I studied abroad in America. My friend asked me to teach her Japanese, but even though I am Japanese, I had no idea how to teach her. I was so disappointed in myself. When I returned to Japan,  I started teaching Japanese to some of my classmates at university and I really enjoyed it, so I decided to become a Japanese teacher!

Q: What do you like about teaching?

Often, my students ask me questions about Japan or Japanese that I had never considered before. It makes me rethink my view of myself, my country, and my language. I really love it! Also, I am a language learner myself in English and Korean, so I understand the struggles of learning a foreign language and know it can be intimidating. So, I want to help build my students’ confidence using Japanese and have fun learning along the way.

Q: What are your hobbies?

My hobbies are traveling and Netflix 🙂 I have been to a lot of countries. For example, I’ve been to America, Australia, South Korea, Thailand, and Singapore, among others. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to travel much recently because of Covid-19, but at the very least, I enjoy watching American TV shows on Netflix with Japanese subtitles!
