Q: How are your lessons?
Each student has different goals and study styles regarding Japanese language learning. I saw many different types of students like “one wanted to be able to survive in Japan” “ one to be able to communicate in business” and “one wanted to communicate with friends in share house”
I strive to accommodate our Japanese language students' individual needs.
Q: What do you like about teaching?
I like the moments when the student can share her/his thoughts, needs, ideas, and experiences.
Students' questions always inspire me. Especially unexpected ones give me the inspiration to rethink the way of teaching and even the Japanese culture behind the languages!
Q: What are your hobbies?
Playing the drums! My band usually has live performances 5 times a year playing like Carol King, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks.
It is so sad that we haven’t been able to have any performance since last year due to Covid 19. I love traveling to explore towns, architecture, foods, drinks, and music.
Before the pandemic I traveled to Berlin 4 times, Taipei 2 times, Hanoi, Singapore, Italy, Seattle, Portland and Akita, Hiroshima, and Okinawa in 5 years.
