Hello everyone!

I'm a qualified Japanese teacher and have been teaching for more than 15 years in Tokyo.

Previously I have taught Japanese to a large group of students in a language school 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!

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...
