italki teacher since Feb 14, 2022
🎉 Calendar UPDATED until mid February. (※ Will update later for late February 🍰🍩🍭)
Hello, everyone! Konnichiwa!
I’m Moe from Kyoto. I majored in English literature at the university in Kyoto, and worked at the companies (trading and Japanese language school).
I've studied English in Australia and interpretation in Canada. I’m currently studying French and also I’ve learned Chinese as a second foreign language in the university.
I like photos, travel, and Yoga! I’ve been to 15 countries so far and what I like when I visit the new place is communicating with locals and get to know their cultures. I’m a positive and friendly person, so feel free to ask anything!
Me as a Teacher
I am a qualified teacher of Japanese. (Completed 420 hours Japanese Teacher Training Course)
I have worked for students studying Japanese from all over the world at the Japanese language school for almost 4 years, and also I have taught Japanese in Canada as a volunteer when I lived in Toronto.
Since I’m also the one who is studying other language from the scratch, I know how hard practically using the language you learn is although it’s so much fun to study. In my lesson, I want to support you for not only learning Japanese as a “knowledge” but also using Japanese actually.
ALL level is welcome! Let’s enjoy speaking Japanese! I’m looking for seeing you in my class:)
My lessons & teaching style
I teach Japanese with a focus on the way how to have a natural conversation, the grammars for beginner and pronunciation.
◆General Japanese for beginners
I will teach grammars by using PowerPoint based on the textbook called Minna no Nihongo 1&2. You don’t need to prepare books.
The topic in the conversation class is absolutely free! If you have something you want to talk, please let me know. I’ll send you the feedback about grammar/vocabulary correction after the lesson! Also I’m from Kyoto, so I can talk to you in Kansai dialect!
I'll plan for the class in line with your request. Please let me know your request/idea in advance :D

Moesans lessons are very good and are delivered in a fun, relaxed and informative manner. In the lessons there is a good balance when learning new grammar and practicing it afterwards to ensure it is understood. The homework feedback is also very useful to practice all the learnt grammar further. Thank you.

Reasons you should take classes with もえ先生!
1) She's very kind and encouraging. I know she won't judge my mistakes and will celebrate when I get it right.
2) Her syllabus for beginners is comprehensive & well-paced. It's perfect if you don't know where to start or if you like following a course.
3) Her lessons are well presented with useful & interesting materials that encourage me to use Japanese.
4) She's great at explaining grammar. I always understand the class & learn something new.
5) She sends me the grammar after each lesson so I can use them to study in my own time.
6) She sets optional homework so I can practise my handwriting, vocabulary & grammar from the lessons if I have time.
7) She gives useful feedback that helps me continue to grow in my Japanese journey.
8) Our lessons are always full of laughter!
9) She's very reliable and professional
10) She breaks down new words so I understand how to recognise similar words in the future.
素晴らしい先生です！I'm so happy with my progress⭐️

Another lesson down!
Moe-san is a patient, kind, and conscientious sensei. I had a great lesson with her. Her teaching flow is fluid and her slides are well put together. She explained grammar well and we had plenty of practice speaking. She tries to speak mostly in Japanese so I get used to hearing it as well as pick up on some of the vocabs, but it helps tremendously that she is proficient in English, especially when I don't understand something and need a more in-depth explanation.
Thank you for an excellent lesson Moe-san!!
