Q: How are your lessons?
In my lesson, I would like to know why you want to learn and improve your Japanese and try to fit your needs. I know learning another language is very hard, especially Kanji will be very hard you. But keeping the motivation is very important. I would like to make my lesson practical and let you speak a lot to get confidence.
How did I improve my English while in Singapore? I had many friends to talk with and it helped me improve my English a lot.
As for learning Japanese, you may make many mistakes in the beginning but trying to use Japanese is more important than making sure everything is perfect. I would like my Japanese language students relax and have fun in the lessons. I want to be your ‘friend’ in the class to talk a lot.
Q: What do you like about teaching?
I have been teaching English to small children and students by the drama method (English/Japanese) for 17 years. I saw their growth and changes a lot in these experiences. It is my greatest pleasure to see their progress as a tutor. Now I would like to support the students at Japan Switch to understand Japan and Japanese better. Once you know the basic Japanese skill, I am sure you can enjoy your life here better. I would like to also share my experiences of living abroad and what I did to make the most out of that experience. Overall, I would like to see you smile while learning Japanese.
Q: What are your hobbies?
I like cooking and baking. When I lived in Singapore, I took a cooking class to learn how to make local foods. Now I can check the recipes on the internet, so I can try many new foods at home. I also enjoy doing Hot Yoga now. I feel it is very relaxing and being in a very hot and humid room is good to sweat a lot.
