About Me
italki teacher since Aug 4, 2022
みなさん こんにちは! わたしの 名前は、ゆうかです。 わたしは、北海道 出身です。 みなさんと 一緒に 勉強できることを 楽しみにしています! Hi, my name is Yuka. I was born and raised in Hokkaido Japan. I love learning languages, meeting new people and exploring new cultures. I’ve lived in Canada and Ireland for getting experiences that I had never done. Through those experience made me interested in teaching Japanese. So, I completed all the requirements of Japanese Language Teacher Training Course (420 hours above.) and passed the Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test. I don't have much experience with Italki yet, but I have given over 200 lessons on other online language learning platforms and have also taught at a Japanese language school.

I was very nervous before the class, but as soon as it started Yuka-sensei quickly made me feel at ease. She is very friendly and gentle, I had a really great time practicing Japanese. The whole time she made sure the conversation would flow nicely and helped me to find the words to express what I needed to communicate. :) Thank you, Yuka-sensei! Looking forward for our next lessons together!

Just had my 1st lesson with Yuka sensei. I feel honored as well being her 1st student on Italki. We had a great time understanding each other through self introduction and also had a discussion on type and kind of lessons I feel will be more beneficial to me right now. The outcome of the lesson was fruitful and effective. I feel that it is necessary to make things clear at the start so that both parties understood how to proceed from there as it might be a long term investment of time and effort. Yuka sensei is very open minded, polite and approachable in terms of the deciding the way to carry out the lesson plan. I can see potential in Yuka sensei being a very reliable and great teacher. Thanks for the lesson today Yuka sensei. Definitely looking forward to our next lesson.

Today we continued covering part 2 of vocabulary found in chapter 1 of intermediate level chapter. In addition we had some time to read through 1 passage. Yuka sensei takes time to go through some words I did not know the pronunciation and 1 or 2 doubts that I had patiently. Technical skills such as application and explanation is Yuka sensei's Forte. I also agree with her that hardcore memorizing is not the way to learn a new language efficiently. Drilling and applying, continual process is the most effective way in life long learning journey. Thanks Yuka sensei for another great time and wonderful lesson. Looking forward to the next one as usual.

It's been a while since last had lesson with Yuka sensei. I am glad to be able to book her lessons even though she is busy and had limited available time slot opened. I understood its never easy having a full time job at the same time so I really appreciate that she try to accommodate and make time for teaching on italki. We continued covering the 2nd list of vocabulary from chapter 1 of intermediate textbook. I always had fun during lessons with Yuka sensei because it's so engaging and interactive though at the same time technical. It allows you to freely express yourself and she is always there to support and motivate you where necessarily. Yuka sensei is patient and understanding in that aspect. Empthatic and encouraging, friendly and helpful, she is such a reliable and reassuring teacher. Professional, knowledgeable and experienced, highly qualified teacher.

Had my 1st lesson of 2023 with Yuka sensei. We started with short chat on how we spent our new year's eve and new year's day prior to proceeding to main part of lesson. I think it's helpful to have a warmup to prepare ourselves. As usual we continued covering 2nd part of vocabulary of chapter 1 of textbook by trying to form example sentences off that. It's technical yet fun, I can freely express myself in terms of forming sentences with not much restriction except must include the newly learnt vocabulary inside. As usual I struggled but Yuka sensei is there to support and help with me letting her know what kind of things I wanted to express out. Thanks as always for that Yuka sensei. I really appreciate it greatly.
