Why did you become a teacher?
When I lived in Hokkaido, I taught Japanese to one of my foreign roommates. As time went by, they began to speak well and I felt much enjoyment from that. This opportunity made me realize there are many chances to develop a relationship with many people through the Japanese language. That is why I became a teacher and decided to work at a Japanese language school. I am currently teaching Japanese in Shinjuku at Japan Switch
What do you like about teaching?
I am happy when my students become more interested in Japan and feel motivated to learn Japanese through my lessons. It is rewarding that I can feel each student’s improvement closely. I think each student has his/her custom and culture. I would like to be open-minded and learn a lot from my students. I am happy that students are interested in Japan even just a little. The great pleasure and benefit is when I notice the growth in my students!
How are your lessons?
I focus on teaching grammar, phrases, vocabulary which native Japanese frequently use in daily life. I would like to be your learning partner and I would be happy to support you until you feel confident and comfortable using what you have learned.
I would like to cater to each student’s needs or requests as much as I can and provide fun and fruitful lessons. I am looking forward to sharing Japanese culture, customs, and interesting topics with you too and having a fun time together.
I can teach you what types of grammar, phrases, and expression that native Japanese people use, and when to use the phrases. We can practice together until you get used to the phrase very well. We like to have fun lessons that suit each student's needs at Japan Switch. Not only Japanese, but we also share cultures or habits.
What are your hobbies?
My hobbies are playing the guitar, mountain climbing, jogging, camping, reading books, drinking alcohol, studying Spanish, gardening and traveling, also macrame (lacework).
