italki teacher since May 7, 2013
Hello! I’m a native Japanese speaker living in Aomori prefecture, Japan. I’m currently working as an online Japanese teacher and as a Japanese calligraphy teacher at a kindergarten. I lived in Canada for six months, so I speak basic English. In my spare time I enjoy going to Karaoke and studying English.
Me as a Teacher
I have been an online Japanese teacher for over five years now. I have experience working at a community center to teach Japanese and most of my students were beginners, so I know what kind of questions beginner students have and the simplest ways to answer those questions so students aren’t confused. I’m enthusiastic about my job on italki, so I always work hard to have useful and fun lessons.
My lessons & teaching style
Many of my students tell me they don’t have enough time for speaking practice because their classes are too large or because they don’t have Japanese friends. I’ll let you speak a lot during our lessons. As you can see from my profile, I’ve taught hundreds of students and thousands of lessons on italki. Many of my students have taken 30+ lessons with me, which shows that students enjoy my lessons and teaching style.

Today we discussed Halloween and continued working on an essay. I was having a hard time remembering vocabulary, but Yuri was very patient and helped me figure out how to express what I wanted to say. Thank you!
