About Me

Hi! I am Fuka. I love traveling and meeting new people, trying new things and learning about different cultures. I always wanted to see the world for as long as I can remember. That was my motivation to learn English. Not to study it, but to USE it. So even though I didn’t get to study English or travel outside of Japan as a child, I loved watching movies and TV shows in English and dreamed of adventuring around the world on my own, using English to make it possible. Now I am a teacher here on italki and also a digital nomad for the past few years. I enjoy both being outdoors and a couch potato, talking with people, taking photos, chasing sunsets, collecting stickers and feeding random cats.

Fuka-san is a great teacher! She's very friendly and easy to understand. It takes a lot of courage to overcome the fear of messing up on speaking a new language, but she takes everything at whatever speed is most comfortable for you while still trying to encourage you to try things on your own. I definitely recommend :).

The amount of tangible progress I’ve made with Fuka-san is such a great feeling. It’s becoming increasingly more challenging, but I feel confident thanks to Fuka-san’s guidance🙌

This was my 180th lesson with Fuka sensei. Fuka sensei was the first sensei I booked on iTalki and she has always been a massive influence on my Japanese studies. Fuka sensei has helped me enormously ever since our first lesson. Her encouragement, gentle corrections, exemplary conduct, wonderfully cheerful and bright personality is heaven sent. I couldn't ask for anything more from Fuka sensei, she ticks each and every box of what a good sensei should be. I always look forward to each and every one of our lessons as I know they'll always be enjoyable, educational and I'll come out with a humongous smile of satisfaction. 本当にありがとうございました。また木曜日に。

Fuka is so comforting and has me relaxed every lesson. She seems to genuinely enjoy teaching and has taught me some nuances I wouldn't realize without years of using the language.

I've been trying to review the Genki textbooks to catch up to where I was previously, but the speaking and listening practice with Fuka-sensei is invaluable! While I am still struggling to speak, I have felt improvement in just 3 lessons. Fuka-sensei also makes conversations very easy, like you're talking to a friend, as well as explaining the grammar behind phrases. Thanks Fuka-sensei!
