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!

Me as a Teacher
I'm a qualified Japanese teacher, and I have 5 years of experience teaching Japanese, including 3 years teaching at a language school.
I have taught both children and adults - from beginners to advanced classes.
I am learning foreign languages myself, so I understand how fun and difficult it is to learn foreign languages. That's why I try to make my lessons as fun as possible so that you can enjoy studying Japanese!

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!
