I was born and raised in Ibaraki Japan. I like baking, traveling, watching Netflix, and learning Spanish! I currently live in Barcelona Spain. I have studied English in Arkansas America for a year when I was in high school. I spent the most formative time there. After high school, I went to Melbourne Australia to learn hospitality management at a vocational school for a year. After my study I’ve worked in hospitality industry for more than 5 years. Teaching Japanese to people from other countries was one of my dreams and I am glad to make that happen now!

Mana is a great teacher and conversationalist, which is what I am trying to get better at. I forget that I am taking a lesson she corrects me or answers questions and it just flows. 楽しいレッスンをありがとうございます!

Mana quizzed me on something we covered last week, so it was good practice to reinforce what we discussed. Also she is easy to talk to and offers corrections that flow with the conversation and if I am really stumped I can say it in English and she explains it in Japanese.

Mana is very easy to talk to and was good at explaining the meaning of words or sentences I don't understand, in Japanese. I prefer concept or words I don't understand to be explained in Japanese first, and then English if I am still struggling, so this was great! Mana also speaks and understands English, so for the times I could not think of a single way to start forming the sentence I wanted to say I could communicate that to her.

I had 2 lessons with Mana so far. The focus was on speaking and listening as they are my weakest areas with Japanese. She was kind enough to slow down and was patient with my responses. Excellent teacher, I highly recommend.
