My story

Meeting with foreigners in Japan and traveling to various countries of South-East Asia during my university years helped me understand I wanted to become a Japanese teacher. Engaged on this path since 2004,

I have now taught Japanese in Japan as well as in Thailand, to foreign nationals of more than 50 different
countries.

My aim for class

While each student may have their own reasons and objectives for choosing to study Japanese, helping them feel that “Japanese language is fun!” becomes a real motivation. With that in mind, I try to prepare my lessons in a way that can be enjoyable while focusing on the practical needs and goals of my students, and put emphasis on communication skills training.
