Psychology Graduate / Language and Art Enthusiast
italki teacher since Nov 24, 2021
A Psychology major who loves being able to help others in any way possible! I was born and raised in Hong Kong so I grew up speaking English and learned Tagalog (Filipino) afterwards from my parents.
I learned French and Cantonese in high school and am currently still brushing up on my skills to reach fluency so I'm on this language-learning journey with you!
Me as a Teacher
I am very patient because I understand what it's like to learn a new language, and I'm not that strict when it comes to teaching.
I prefer encouraging my students to speak as much as possible -- no matter how broken their sentences are, so that they can get used to speaking the language and eventually won't be afraid to make mistakes since it's part of the learning experience, and ultimately improve their speaking skills.
My lessons & teaching style
P.S. I have 2 English conversation lessons, please check the description for more details! (:
I love talking about anything and everything, even if it's not something I'm well-versed in because I love learning about and discussing different concepts and cultures! I can either teach at a slower or quicker pace depending on your language ability.
My style is not letting our classes feel like a 'strict' or 'structured' lesson, it's like a class where you're talking to a friend! I might suggest something we can focus on after assessing your language ability during our first class together!

I enjoy taking classes with Kani a lot. Classes are casual conversations, and I feel very comfortable practicing my speaking skills. Kani is helping me with pronunciation, teaching me new expressions, and gradually correcting me when I make mistakes. Kani is very punctual, polite, kind, and fun. We discuss the most random topics possible, which is both challenging and fun.

Great class as always! I had a lot classes with Kani and she is able to find interesting topic to talk about in the beginning of every class, just from the casual greetings. You don’t need to worry if there’s nothing to talk about. I think it’s because she has such great passion to life and eager to get to know and help different people. My confidence and fluency in spoken English is greatly enhanced since I had her class. Thank you Kani!
