About Me
italki teacher since Mar 29, 2016
Award winning Japanese teacher who lived in the UK 🇬🇧 (for 15 years), Germany 🇩🇪 (2 years), Australia 🇦🇺, and the U.S 🇺🇸. I picked up English and Japanese as I grew up. I can speak in different accents! I have been awarded the Duolingo Language Impact Award in 2021. I'm a very articulate speaker, and I explain complicated ideas in a way everyone can understand. I'm also a composer/musician/sound engineer. I've written music for Discovery, Netflix, Universal etc... Recently I started writing stories for TV. Things I like: music, video games (JRPGs), technology, comedy, cats (I have a cat called Yuffie), brain science, exercising, and anime etc.. I welcome everyone with open arms!

Taeko always has well structured lessons planned and starts the lesson right on the dot, but she does more than just that. During today’s lesson, she gave me a really great talk about proper learning mentality; basically, when you’re learning a language, you’re teaching a young child. You wouldn’t get angry with a young child for not grasping advanced concepts quickly, so you shouldn’t get angry with yourself either. Really changed the way I think about learning, and I feel like I can be much more patient with myself. What a great teaching moment!

I have been Taeko-sensei's student for a while now and I have to say that she is my favorite teacher I have ever learned under. From the very first lesson, she had a good grasp of where my current skills were at and had strong suggestions for what I needed to improve on. Overtime we developed a lesson plan that worked well for me. Every lesson feels extremely engaging and she she always shows a vested interest in what I have to talk about. It is very much like talking to a friend. I cannot recommend her enough!

My son loves his lessons with Taeko. He is making excellent progress with Japanese. I honestly could not say enough positive things about how working with Taeko has improved my sons foreign language learning experience.
