Hello, everyone! I'm an experienced Japanese language teacher with a passion for online language learning. Over the past 8 years, I have been teaching Japanese as a professional instructor. I have worked at Japanese language schools and universities, gaining valuable experience in the field. While I excel in teaching grammar, I also have extensive experience in instructing conversation, writing, and listening comprehension. I believe in providing a well-rounded approach to language learning, ensuring that my students can effectively communicate in various situations. In free talk sessions, I enjoy engaging in conversations on a wide range of topics. Not only do I love discussing games and

Today was a really good lesson! As before Sayako Sensei has great energy and keeps the lesson flowing well. Whenever I got stuck she helped me out. I found the grammar lesson interesting and reinforced some things that I'd read about but struggle to put into practice.

Sayako-san is friendly, helpful, fun and easy to talk with! She allows the conversation to flow by speaking very clearly and will make adjustments when needed. Sayako-san is an awesome teacher and is very patient, I highly recommend her lesson and look forward to chatting with her again! 素晴らしい先生、ありがとうございます。

Sometimes during a conversation with another person, there are pauses when everyone doesn't know how to continue the conversation. This often happens during long conversations with people you are not very familiar with. Naturally, this also occurs during lessons with a foreign language teacher. But not in the case with Sayako-san. She always has a plethora of new topics for discussion ready, and the conversation never turns into boring small talk. Sayako-san is patient and will not rush you when you are in a panic trying to recall a word you remembered just a minute ago. Sayako-san explains complex grammatical rules simply so that you have no doubts about when you need to and when you don't need to use them in your speech. I highly recommend her lessons.

楽しい会話ができました。教師は海外滞在の経験もあって、色々な共通点があるという感じでした。自分の(日本語)目的に合わせた授業予定を一緒に作れる事と提案してくれました。語彙が足りなかった時には「ゆっくりどうぞ」という感じでした。客として満足です。
