Me as a Teacher
I learnt teaching of Japanese as minor and have a certificated JLTC Test.
I have experience teaching Japanese at secondary school in Melbourne, Australia. And now I'm teaching Japanese with all levels at language school in Osaka.
Also I am an English-learner. So I can imagine how you feel when you learn new languages.
Please don't be nervous in my class and enjoy learning Japanese with me !
My lessons & teaching style
During our lessons, I'm focused on you build self-confidence to speak in Japanese, with an emphasis on speaking through natural conversation. If you're interested in particular topics, situations or grammar structures, I can prepare materials. I'm happy to help you achieve each different goals.
I can provide 2 type of lessons.
* General Conversation
* Interview preparation and resume review (I have an experience working at HR section.)
After lessons, I will provide you with the feedback as well.

I had a great lesson with Shiina! She was helpful, kind and encouraging. We did conversation practice and she kept track of the mistakes I made so that we could look at them at the end of the lesson, which was a good way to not interrupt the conversation flow but still get feedback.

Just had my 1st lesson with Shiina sensei. I am very satisfied and impressed by her efforts put in and also deliverance of the lesson. She totally understood my struggles and concern and provided assistance and help towards that aspect. It's like treating sickness with the right medicine. Her experience and crudential as a teacher makes her a very reliable and reassuring teacher to have for people learning Japanese. I would like to continue to take more lessons with her. Thanks for a very informative and helpful lesson Shiina sensei. Looking forward to the next one.
As always, I had a really great lesson with Shiina. Thank you so much!

I had a productive lesson today. Every lesson, we dived into a new topic, where we can practise a conversation. Today, we spoke about the what is different about my country, as compared to other countries. I shared about the extremely high car prices in Singapore. Through the conversation, it trains my brain and fluency in expressing deeper insights with better sentence structures.

It is my 3rd class, I truly enjoyed my class with Shiina Sensei. Through different conversational themes, I get the necessary practise to put what I learnt on theory into actual practise. She does a summary at the end of every lesson, to review through all the conversational mistakes. E.g. Grammer particles. I became more aware of the common Grammer mistakes that comes out from my speaking, and this helps me train my muscle memory towards speaking more accurately.
