Why did you become a teacher?

When I was 15years old I went to the U.S for the first time to study English. My poor English made me want to go home in 3 days. I cried in bed every night. At that time, a native teacher kindly taught me how to communicate in English. I can’t forget the joy of being able to express my feelings in English. I’m very grateful to foreign people for helping me.

Now it’s my turn. I’d like to help people who want to learn Japanese.

My greatest achievement is, having realized my goal of getting a Japanese teacher’s license. I have done a lot of hard work and as a result, I am now able to teach Japanese and share my knowledge with other people as an online tutor.

I am here to help you with your study.

What do you like about teaching?

I enjoy teaching because I get to help people learn. Teaching Japanese is a very enjoyable experience for me. It allows me to meet people and share my thoughts with them. 

I am excited to know about you and your culture.

Even though I'm in Japan, teaching you makes me feel like I’m in your country.

How are your lessons?

Japanese may be difficult but we will learn it in a fun and easy way. I promise to make every lesson fun and easy as I know that learning Japanese can sometimes be challenging.

I assure you that I will use simple and effective ways for you to learn Japanese. Let's practice what you already know and add something new each day.

Don't worry, I will be with you every step of the way going at your own pace. I will make the time you spend with me worth your while.

What are your hobbies?

Scuba Diving is my life.

I  love the sea. I’ve dived in various oceans around the world including Maldives, Mexico, Fiji, NewCaledonia, Australia, Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia. A quiet and beautiful world under the water brings me pleasure and healing. Recently, I haven’t had the chance to go abroad but I go to Okinawa every year.

How do you spend your days off?

I love eating a lot of chocolate. I’m also certified as a chocolate specialist.

When I find a good chocolate shop, I post it on my Instagram. I’d like to try tasty chocolate from all over the world.

Please tell me If you know of any delicious chocolates. (^^♪
