italki teacher since Oct 12, 2021
Hi everyone! I'm Taishi, I am currently living in Chiba Prefecture (near Tokyo) but I used to live and study in an international environment of Hong Kong for many years. I've also lived in Brisbane, Australia as well. I speak standard Japanese, English and little bit of Mandarin Chinese.
In my spare time I enjoy playing guitar, photography, reading books, traveling, and watching movies!
Me as a Teacher
As a learner of two other foreign languages myself, I understand how difficult and challenging it is to be able to speak in a new language.
My biggest strength is my ability to use English to assist you whenever needed.
Having lived in overseas for more than two decades, I am also experienced in tutoring Japanese to foreigners in HK and in Australia as well.

Free conversational style with free topics. Any level is welcomed! New vocabularies or phrases during the conversation will be typed in the chat box. We could also choose a discussion theme or even read articles together if necessary. Let's have fun!

Taishi sensei helped me a lot with the lesson today and I was able to speak so much. He also corrected my grammar and suggested to me the best words to use for the particular sentence I want to say. I had a fun lesson with him. Thanks so much!
Taishi was really supportive and corrected my mistakes. I learned a some great vocabulary. I think even if you are beginner and struggle with conversation you will be comfortable in his class.

Awesome teacher. Totally recommended! I felt comfortable since class 1, every lesson is a lot of fun and he is very patient with me although I'm still at a beginner stage 🙂

Taishi先生 has been helping me retain Kanji that I need to pass JLPT N3. He is able to help me understand the logic behind using Kanji depending on the form of the words/grammar. I really enjoy our classes and his explanations are very clear.
