Hi, My name is Kanami.
I'm from in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. Do you know here?
Kanagawa Prefecture is very close to Tokyo, so if you want to know anything about Tokyo, just ask.
My hobbies are singing and watching musicals.
I am currently studying English every day, so learning English is also a hobby of mine.
I am living in England now. Available lesson times are irregular and can be adjusted to some extent. Please feel free to send me a message.
Me as a Teacher
I try not to 'teach' you Japanese, but to 'keep you motivated to learn' it.
Basically, I will prepare the topics, so feel free to book.
However, the shortcut to improvement is preparation and review. If you prepare questions and topics in advance and make sure you don't have any unclear points, you will have a more fulfilling lesson.
My availability is random, but if you message me, I may be able to make time.
Feel free to let me know your availability.

One of my goal is to push my listening skill so I specially requested Kanami Sensei not to use English. I am happy that Kanami Sensei accommodated my request and spoke Japanese at a slower pace for my understanding. On words that I didn't understand, she used different words/examples to explain. She also gave me a little test at the end of the lesson reviewing new words we learned today. Thank you for the first lesson.

I had a super great lesson with Kanami! I took her class, which focuses on learning a song in Japanese. It was the perfect class for me because I love music and enjoy singing. I really liked the class because not only did we had a really interesting discussion about the song, but I also got to practice reading in Japanese, which is a skill I've been working on and would like to do more of. I hope to continue taking this class, as I learned so much and had a lot of fun! Thank you!

I had a really fun time talking to Kanami! She was really sweet and patient with me when I was fishing for words or phrasing. She also helped me find words and correct my grammar, and I really liked that we spent the last 5 minutes reviewing the words and grammar that she had helped me with during the lesson, which I thought was really efficient! I definitely want to take more classes with her because I feel like it will help me improve a lot

In today's lesson we worked on learning the Japanese version of my absolute favorite song in the world! I play the song on the piano, and wanted to learn the lyrics so that I could also sing it. Kanami helped me through the process, step by step. Thank you!

Lessons with Kanami are the ideal blend of learning about Japanese culture, improving my vocabulary, and even working on my reading comprehension skills, since we carefully go over all of the lyrics of the songs I'm working on. Fun lessons all around!
