italki teacher since Apr 8, 2022
Hi! I'm Nonoka. I lived in Kyoto. I'm native Japanese speaker.
I'm university student but I'm taking a gap year and moved to Canada in this year.
In my free time, I like watching movies, TV series and listening to music.
I'm interested in social issues. (Feminism, Racism, LGBTQ+ etc...) I can teach you about Japan's social issues if you are interested in. My class is a safe space for the LGBT+🏳️🌈!
I love to get to know you in my class!! :)

Just had my 1st lesson with Nonoka sensei. I was amazed by her professionalism and proficiency in carrying out conversational lesson. It was spontaneous and interactive, engaging and encouraging. Motivating and definitive. Cute and supportive. Polite and helpful. Confident and patient. Topics talked about were also relevant and appropriate. Overall I had a great time chatting with Nonoka sensei. I am definitely looking forward to booking more lessons with her.

Nonoka-san was very easy to talk to and patient with me, and was flexible in talking with many different topics as well as noting down my mistakes!

Nonoka is great at teaching. Even though I'm a begginer in learning Japanese, Nonoka makes me feel confident enough to speak up. We talked a lot only in half an hour. I really recommend this class!
Today we talked about company benefits and Halloween and found many common points that we are bad at. Interactive and natural, conversation with Nonoka sensei felt spontaneous enough (though at certain point do feel like conversation might run out of things to say and become awkward) but I am glad it didn't. I guessed that's part of it being natural and on the spot. I am grateful that Nonoka sensei is able to find some free time for lessons as I get opportunity to chat with her again. Thanks Nonoka sensei for another great lesson. Really appreciate it.

It's been a while since I had lesson with Nonoka sensei. Hence given a rare opportunity, I tried out a 1 hour session. As expected we had lots to talk about. I am also glad to hear that the teacher is getting used to her new life and felt stable enough to resume some lesson. Her calm and reassuring presence makes one feel so comfortable and relaxed. Cost effective, spontaneous and fun lesson as always. I am thankful and its a pleasure to be able to take lesson with Nonoka sensei.
