Hi, my name is Shoko Ishida. Thank you for visiting my profile! I was born and raised in Kyoto, Japan. Now I live in Osaka. (but I use "Standard Japanese" in my lessons.) I like drawing pictures, reading books, playing the piano, and talking with my students! I love to learn about different cultures, customs, and ways of thinking. And I have traveled to eight countries so far, including Taiwan, the United States, Finland, and Egypt. There are so many more countries I would like to visit. What do you like to do? Let's talk a lot about you in Japanese! I really look forward to meeting you at our first lesson! ◇Work experience ◇ ●Japanese language instructor ●Private tutor ●Secretary

Shouko have been a very helpful teacher to develop my speaking skills from everything I learned from self-studying. She's very kind and patient, and my spoken japanese has gotten significantly better since I started taking lessons with her!

I'm actually a very shy person, but with Shoko I quickly lost my fear and don't feel insecure at all. She is very friendly and accommodating. Her lessons are challenging but not overwhelming. Even as an absolute beginner, I understand her explanations in Japanese very well. And if not, her good English helps. I really feel that she is pushing me forward in my learning and that I am making great progress. If you want to have fun while learning Japanese, you should definitely give her a chance!

I was quite scared to take a one-to-one lesson in a language I'm new to and very unfamiliar with, but Shoko Sensei was very kind and nice, and made me feel very much at ease!

Ive been taking lessons with Shoko sensei alongside my wife for a couple of weeks now and it's always a great time. She is so much fun and encouraging. Lessons are personalized so that's great for us. Highly recommend taking lessons with Shoko sensei

I’m going to Japan soon for my study exchange, and Shouko helped me a lot with some everyday questions I had during today’s free-talk lesson! ありがとうございますしょうこさん🥰

Shoko-sensei is always unfailingly patient, kind and encouraging in our conversations, and that has really helped me develop confidence in speaking. I was in Japan recently, and felt that my lessons with Shoko-sensei had made all the difference in my ability to have conversations with people there!
