About Me
italki teacher since Feb 6, 2022
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'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!

Learning with Shoko is a lot of fun. My Japanese conversation skills improved quiet a bit since I started taking lessons with her. You should give it a try, too!

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!

The lessons taught by Ishida Sensei are very clear and engaging! I feel like I’m becoming better at using Japanese every time we talk and the feedback Ishida Sensei provide is really helpful!
