🇬🇧Hello, everyone! I'm Nozomi, a Japanese teacher living in Spain. I'm originally from Tochigi Prefecture in Japan, and I speak standard Japanese. I also have been studying English and Spanish myself, so I understand both the challenges and the joys of learning a new language. It might not be easy but a great way to discover yourself and expand your opportunities! 🇪🇸Hola a todos! Soy Nozomi, una profesora que vive en España. También he estado estudiando inglés y español por mi cuenta, por lo que comprendo tanto los desafíos como las alegrías de aprender un nuevo idioma. Puede que no sea fácil, ¡pero es una excelente manera de descubrirse a uno mismo y ampliar sus oportunidades!

Nozomi-san was incredibly friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. I was very nervous and she made me feel very at ease. It was like talking to a friend! She never rushed me and was never afraid to have a conversation with me whenever I had any questions or a need for clarifications. What a wonderful teacher, looking forward to many more lessons!

Initially I was looking for a teacher in italki to support my Japanese self-study. I had trial lessons with several teachers, but personally Nozomi Sensei suited my learning style the most. I have had 4 sessions so far, so I feel I could provide a more unbiased review. One major point I like about her teaching is how she corrects my speaking and sentence examples respectfully and kindly, with no judgement. Her explanation is easy to understand and whenever I feel confused about some grammar points, she patiently repeats her explanation until I understand. She also likes to go the extra mile at her explanations whenever there are important grammars or vocabularies related to my questions. And lastly, she is a very flexible teacher for a self-taught Japanese learner like me. I regularly list questions before the session begins and she explains them all in detail during the session! のぞみ先生のレッスンを受けられて良かったです!本当におすすめの先生だと思います!

Pedí a Nozomi先生 que trabajáramos con el libro Genki I, por lo que es lo que hemos estado usando para revisar gramática. Comenzamos a ver los distintos usos de las partículas poco a poco. Creo que he las explicaciones sobre el uso de partículas cubiertas hasta ahora han sido bastante claras, no he tenido ningún problema en entenderlas. Aunque al momento de construir oraciones, a veces las olvido, pero Nozomi siempre repite la forma correcta después de que cometo un error, y siempre es bastante amable al hacerlo. Además, Nozomi hace muchas preguntas, espera pacientemente a que formule mi respuesta y solo me ayuda hasta que lo pido o cuando nota que realmente tengo demasiada dificultad, pero normalmente me da oportunidad de intentarlo sola aunque me tarde un poco o vaya integrando la oración por partes. A pesar de llevar pocas clases, creo que poco a poco soy capaz de entender y expresarme cada vez más en conversaciones sencillas. ありがとうございました!

I’m just about to go to Japan and this was a fantastic final lesson before I go! Nozomi Sensei is brilliant. Her explanations of the grammar in GENKI are incredibly helpful and she is always super supportive. The lessons are always very enjoyable and I learn loads.

Really good trial lesson with Nozomi - actually came away from it feeling more confident about my (very basic!) knowledge of Japanese. She explained concepts I was struggling with clearly whilst providing examples which made everything much clearer for me. She is very encouraging, kind and patient and was a joy to speak to. Highly recommend!
