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

I've been taking lessons with Shoko sensei for almost a year now and I can definitely say my Japanese has improved a lot. She is always willing to answer any and all of my questions, she's super encouraging and always a joy to speak with online. I always get nervous before calls as I am highly introverted but after I join the call I always feel so much calmer and happier. I feel beyond accomplished after my lessons! Shoko-san is the best!

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!
