About me


Hello everyone! I am a native Japanese speaker and I have been teaching Japanese more than 10 years as a private tutor in Tokyo.

Before I have taught Japanese to large group's students in a language school of Tokyo and I have worked in South America for 2 years as a volunteer teacher.

I like to tailor lessons for various students needs through fresh topics and materials.

I'm looking forward to speaking with you about many topics in Japanese!

Qualifications & Experience

*420h Japanese teaching course

*Japanese Language teaching Competency Test (2001)

*Japanese teacher's license for elementary school (in Japan)

*Experienced in a Language school for 3 years.

Teaching Approach

I usually use my own materials which are selected grammars from several textbooks like [Genki][Minna no nihongo][Japanese for busy people]. We practice to make short sentences and built a conversation using new grammar.

I always try to have an interactive lesson, so you will be able to learn new things naturally through conversation besides textbook’s vocabulary.

When you are an intermediate and advanced level student, please let me know more details of your purpose, like Business, research and JLPT, etc.. Then I can arrange textbooks appropriately.

thank you so much Marisan, for your patience with me...I will continue to study even is very difficult. Marisensei, understand very well our difficulty to learn Japanese as foreigners. Japanese language is very contextual language, you can't just put together some words, but is that what is fascinating for me...Marisan I do my best I hope I don't disappoint you too much...

thank you so much for your patience with me, I try to do my best but Japanese is very hard to learn, I continue to stay motivated to learn, sometimes is difficult to remember all we learn in this last year because I don't speak enough Japanese in my everyday life...But I'm so happy to come to Japan on next brain will be very tired ...
