Hi, my name is Masami. I was born and raised in Japan. In my twenties I moved to Europe and lived in Austria, UK and the Netherlands for more than 20 years in total. After having lived in China for 3 years, I am back again in the Netherlands since August 2022. My hobbies include Japanese Tea Ceremony (Kimono, Calligraphy Flower arrangement, Zen teachings etc), Classical Music (playing Oboe, Sax and Piano), Travelling (visited many countries in my life), reading and writing etc. I am also interested in the Environmental issues. I am vegan myself and trying to live sustainably as possible. Most of all, I love people and enjoy listening to people. I would love to listen to you too!

I had a good introductory lesson with Masami-san. I explained my circumstances regarding my language skills, and she was able to give proper feedback on my speaking and listening. Besides, she speaks Dutch as well and knows about Dutch culture, so she can guide me better in being considerate towards Japanese people, as our cultures are sometimes diametrically opposed to each other in directness and bluntness.

Masami san was very nice and supportive of me! I learned so much just in the first lesson and she was such a kind teacher ☺️! I will definitely be taking more lessons.

Masami is amazing. We've been doing conversations for a number of months now and she is very good about sticking to Japanese and encouraging me to use Japanese even when I'm struggling with it. For example if I give up and tell her what I want to say in English, she'll write it and say it in Japanese, then repeat it slowly, and encourage me to say it, too. I'm not sure if others experience this but my level of Japanese seems to fluctuate depending on the day. Some days it just spills out of me and others I can't think of even basic words or grammatical structures, but no matter where my head is, Masami will match it and make sure the conversation flows and that I'm learning. As a person she is also very cool! We share a lot of interests and she also has unique hobbies and knows about so many things. I'm really happy I found her and always look forward to our conversations!
