Pronunciation and Communication 発音とコミュニケーション
italki teacher since Jan 18, 2022
I am originally from Kagoshima Prefecture in Japan. I grew up in an environment where nature was always a step away. At the age of 16, I went to the States for a short summer program and that experience basically paved my way here! My English skills merely existed in the program but I learned that languages are indispensable for us to communicate with each other. I continued studying English in college and worked in positions where I used both English and Japanese. Besides my hometown, I lived in Tokyo (6 years), Stockholm (a year total), and Shizuoka Pref. (6 months). Music is one of my greatest interests so let me hear about your favorite artists!
Me as a Teacher
Online Japanese tutor since January 2022 - present
Online English tutor since August 2018 - present
In college, I gained an English teaching certificate for Japanese middle schools. I also obtained TESOL in 2019. I have been exposed to teaching theories, techniques and philosophies throughout my 3+ years of tutoring experiences. I am also an intermediate-level Swedish learner.
Building rapport with my students comes before anything else. I try to create an environment where students can feel safe and supported in and out of the lessons. I would like to be your tutor/friend who's always rooting for you! :)
My lessons & teaching style
I am rather a hands-on tutor. Let's talk about current events in your life. I will type down what we covered in the session so you can focus on communicating with me.
Frequently, I share my screen with my students and we work on something together right there. Students can receive the data afterwards. We can of course use internet for better understanding or explanation. I am a living topic generator so you can just bring yourself and let me "host" the show. :)
