Why did you become a Japanese teacher?
Connecting with people from all over the globe has always been a source of joy for me. The rich blend of cultures, stories, and experiences that my students bring into the classroom is always so insightful. By teaching Japanese, not only do I share a piece of my culture, but it also puts me on a journey of continuous learning. Each lesson becomes a two-way street, where both my students and I benefit. Teaching Japanese is more than just a job to me. It's a fulfilling adventure of mutual growth and discovery.
What do you like about teaching Japanese?
Seeing the spark in my students' eyes when they understand Japanese phrases makes me really happy. Even as a native speaker, teaching requires me to continually refine my understanding of the language. Every time I discover a nuance and pass it on, witnessing my students’ excitement as they begin to articulate their thoughts in Japanese is incredibly rewarding. This shared journey of learning is what I cherish most.
How are your lessons?
My primary goal is to ensure you gain the knowledge and skills to comfortably navigate life in Japan. While we'll use a textbook as a foundation, I encourage you to bring up any daily challenges or questions you encounter. Drawing from my own experiences living abroad, I empathize with the thrills and concerns of adapting to a new culture. Together, we'll not only learn the language but also celebrate and share our unique cultures, making each lesson both educational and enjoyable.
What are your hobbies?
I like to spend time in cozy cafes and relax. Exploring unfamiliar locales is another passion of mine. While I once sought adventures abroad, I've recently been wandering Tokyo's streets, uncovering its hidden gems, delightful eateries, and the parts people don’t talk much about. If you've come across any intriguing spots, I'd love to hear about them!
