italki teacher since Feb 10, 2022
I'm Keisuke. I live in Niigata, Japan. I'm 43 years old. There are four people in my family.
My hobby is cooking. I want to eat famous dishes from all over the world. But traveling costs money, so I make my own and eat it. I've been a nerd since I was a kid and know Japanese anime, dramas, movies and music well.
You don't have to be nervous if you're not confident in conversing in Japanese. Also, you don't have to be afraid because I aim for a class where you can relax and study at the same time. In addition, I’ll do my best to provide support in the conversation. So let's have fun talking together.
Me as a Teacher
I have been teaching Japanese language online for one year now.
Before that, I also participated in a seminar for volunteer Japanese language teachers for a year.
If you have started studying Japanese, I recommend a study method to memorize phrases that Japanese people often use.
Simple and common phrases used in everyday situation would help in starting a conversation. Try to speak with a lot of simple phrases and you’ll be able to get used to Japanese language. I will suggest several ways to learn and adjust the lessons according to your purpose.
Let's enjoy learning Japanese together!

Though I've been on Italki for a few years, Keisuke is one of the best teachers I've had. He's patient, kind, and does his best to explain concepts that are difficult. We're using a textbook, which helps keep the session organized, but we also do conversation practice, where we talk about movies, books, food, and other fun topics. Kanji is one of my weak points, but I'm confident I can master the basic ones in no time with him. I look forward to our classes each week!

I have had 3 lessons with Keisuke 先生, and they have been all very good. The conversation classes are fun. Keisuke 先生, allows me to talk as much as I can in Japanese and makes me feel at ease when speaking. He is patient, attentive and very motivating in class. After class, I am also provided with a correction sheet, for any mistakes I made during the class. This is very helpful for me and makes me feel more confident to talk in Japanese.
The JLPT class is very focused. I like how Keisuke 先生 provides me with documents before class so that I can review and when in class, we work through them at a good pace. Keisuke 先生 makes sure you understand everything before moving on. I like the way he also explains grammar concepts with the interests I have, such as food, manga and anime.
I definitely recommend Keisuke 先生 as a teacher of Japanese. He is very flexible and creates classes with your interest in mind. Thank you! :)
