１）Where are you from, exactly ?
My mom is from a little island, located in the south part, my dad is from the mountain side and I am from Osaka. After I was born, We moved to Tokyo for 10 years and then We came back to Osaka. Because of that, I know 2 major accents, standard and Osaka (well… actually more. If you read the next topic you are going to know why) and also the great nature of Japan. Yes, I’m a bit of everything !
２）What makes you an unique teacher ?
After I graduated from a national university, Hyogo University of Teacher Education, I decided to discover my country and the world.
So, I did a bicycle and hitchhiking trip, I spent every single night at someone’s house for a year in Japan. Then, I started to live in many different countries. I’ve been out of Japan for over a decade, so far.
Those experiences affect not only my understanding of cultures, but also my teaching.
My class won’t be only following the textbook, it comes with cultural perspectives through my experiences.
３）Why are you teaching ?
Spreading History and Culture : Japanese has a long history. I became addicted to knowing more deeper side of my country and sharing my knowledge to the weebs after traveling !
Love to encourage : Simply like to encourage someone. Let me teach, please ! is the sentence that’s always in my mind. I love to see you improve !
Making friends : I think this is the most beautiful part of teaching. All my students become super good friends.
Protecting my culture : After all of those experiences, I truly realized how much cultures are disappearing in this world. I wanna preserve my culture.
And more and more ……
４）Where are you living now and is it your side business ?
Currently, I have been providing group lessons for kids, who have different backgrounds in Vancouver, and have been teaching Japanese to anyone who loves to learn one on one.
Since 2020, I’ve become more serious about it. I’m creating my own contents for better Japanese teaching !!!!! This is officially my main business ;)
５）What you wanna say to students ?
Creating together with a flexible teacher is the best way to improve your language skill, I believe.
What I wanna do through our class is to concentrate on "You reach your own goal". Let me find out what is "Missing" in your Japanese skills with specific methods that will adjust for your level.
And Let’s have a fun moment together ! As long as you have a interest to know Japanese, don't hesitate to contact me ;) !
