I try to make the lessons about using your head and expressing yourself, rather than just learning.

こんにちは! My name is Shogo. I am from Gifu Prefecture, Japan. Now I live in Aichi Prefecture. I have been teaching Japanese since I graduated from university. I currently teach online from home and at a Japanese language school in Nagoya. My hobbies include playing the bass guitar, watching sports games, and driving. Since childhood, I have played a variety of sports, including swimming, tennis, football, and table tennis. I studied language in the UK twice during my university years. (Edinburgh, Norwich) So I also like the UK. My university major is religious culture. I wrote my graduation thesis on the relevance and impact of heavy metal and religion.

Shogo-sensei is very thoughtful in his lessons. Preparation, medias through which he teaches new vocabulary or concepts... I think that he will tailor to your needs every lesson he prepares. I strongly recommend Shogo-sensei to anyone that has a specific intention thought learning Japanese !

My lesson with Shogo-sensei was very useful! We did some talking games which I need to improve my fluency in Japanese. Shogo-sensei is skilled, patient, and he adapted the lesson to my intermediate level. I highly recommend this teacher :)

Shogo Sensei had some really good activities planned for our lesson that he had made. It was a super fun lesson!

This was my first italki lesson ever. I had a total black-out but Shogo was very kind and encouraged me to keep speaking Japanese. Will definitely book another lesson!

I like that it's a game where I am forced to talk and explain.

Had a great time chatting with Shogo-さん, so much so that we accidentally ran a little over time! He is very easygoing and the conversation flowed so well that time passed without us realising. The flow helped to introduce me to new and relevant vocabulary. What's great is that we look for understanding and communication rather than perfect grammar, which is what is useful in daily life conversations. I am looking forward to speaking more Japanese with Shogo-さん.
