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. I really look forward to meeting you at our first lesson! ◇Work experience ◇ ●Japanese language instructor ●Private tutor ●Secretary ●Trade administration

I just love my lessons with Shoko-san so much, I feel like it's always the perfect balance of learning a lot of things and improving my Japanese but also having so much fun and really enjoying the time spent in the lesson. I am really looking forward to more lessons with her!

I had my first lesson with Shoko in September 2022. And guess what? I'm still here. That should say it all, shouldn't it? Shoko is by far the best Japanese teacher I've ever had. Especially for me, who is a very anxious person, doesn't like approaching strangers and hates talking on the phone (not good conditions for online lessons, by the way), lessons with Shoko are always the highlight of my week. She challenges without overwhelming, gives tips and hints without anticipating the answer. Her warm and courteous manner makes you feel like you're at a good friend's house right from the start instead of in a " awkward" teacher-student online situation. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, if you want to have fun learning Japanese, you should definitely give Shoko a try!

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 always have such a good time in my lessons with Shoko-san! She makes sure that I understand everything and adjusts the exercises to overlap with my interests and ideas, which makes me appreciate her work so much more and also helps me remember grammar and vocabulary! Looking forward to more lessons with her!

I am so happy to have lessons with Shoko-san, even as life gets busy and grammar gets more difficult, she always provides a lively, patient and wonderful space for learning and practicing and I always feel so excited to be learning Japanese! I am really looking forward to more lessons with her!
