Let's learn Japanese with certified Japanese teacher
italki teacher since Dec 2, 2021
Hello, I'm Nozzy!
I'm from Japan. I was born and raised in Osaka and I moved to Yokohama next to Tokyo when I was 11. So I can speak both Hyozyungo which is basic Japanese and Osakaben/kansaiben which is Japanese with dialects and accents.
I love traveling around the world, listening to music like R&B, hip hop, Latin, Jazz, pops....etc, watching movies especially drama, comedy, action and musical, aaand cooking! I make very international foods like Korean, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Spanish, Italian, Mexican, of course Japanese too!
Me as a Teacher
I have studied in Canada, Australia, and the US. In Canada, I got a certificate of TESOL so I started teaching Japanese people English online since 2020. Teaching language was much more fun than I thought. That is why I started teaching Japanese as well. I move everywhere in the world so teaching job using online fits my lifestyle. I studied international culture and communication in university and experienced it all over the world. Through my experiences and knowledge, I share the culture with my students and teach real Japanese not like a textbook. Since February 2022, I have taken Japanese language teacher training course and finished it November 2022.
My lessons & teaching style
After all of my experiences in abroad, I believe language is just a tool of communication. Learning and understanding international culture helps to improve your communicational skill. This is why I always choose topics related to your culture, lifestyle, and your preferences for our lessons. Because getting to know each other's culture and choosing topics related to you makes our lessons more fun! Target age is over 10 years old. The level of my lesson is for a beginner to an intermediate. If you are a beginner of Japanese, do not worry at all. I taught many students like you. You will get there!
