About me - English

Konnichiwa, ogenki desuka?

I was born and raised in Japan. I now live in the Netherlands.

I was the company owner of a language school in Shinjuku, Tokyo for 8 years. We were specialised in teaching Japanese from beginner to business levels for European and Asian ex-pats living in the Tokyo area. I also taught Japanese as a headteacher in addition to training other Japanese teachers. I have a total of 18 years of teaching experiences in language industries. I also have work experiences in hotel / travel, media / TV production, and business consulting industries.

Currently, I have students from the UK, the USA, Germany, Italy, France, Denmark, Sweeden, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Indonesia, China, and Japan.

It is always interesting for me to teach people with different work experiences and backgrounds : ) Because I believe that teaching a language always opens my new world!

Don’t worry, if you don’t speak a word of Japanese. Everyone has to start from somewhere… In fact, I am learning Dutch now!

Let’s enjoy learning Japanese language and culture with me!

Qualifications & Experience

Here are some examples of my course plans and teaching experiences,

【Beginner / Pre-Intermediate Japanese】

You learn really slowly from Hiragana and Katakana to basic Kanji and focuses on daily conversations.

You will learn...

●Introducing yourself both polite and casual ways for the first meetings.

●Talking about you: your hobby, work, interests, county, and family.

●Learning a different way of greetings depending on situations.

●Asking about other people and keeping smooth conversations.

●Intonation and pronunciation practices.

●Japanese body languages and mannerisms.

※For Intermediate / Advanced level students, I use not only textbooks but also news articles

from newspapers or magazine and current topics from the TV program to have discussions.

【JLPT Exam Preparation】

I have taught all levels from N5 to N1. I also have teaching materials for all the levels.

I am qualified to teach all levels of JLPT exams.

【Travel / Survival Japanese】

Useful for people who are planning to visit to Japan for pleasure & fun or business.

You will learn...

●Getting on the various transportation and checking in the hotel.

●Going shopping and ordering in the restaurant.

●Asking for directions on the streets and the stations.

●What to do in 'Onsen' (hot spring) place? 

●Money and numbers.

●Manners and customs.

【Business Japanese】

Introducing you to learn how to deal with Japanese people in real business situations.

You will learn...

●Visiting another company for the first time.

●Way of exchanging business cards.

●Introducing yourself and being introduced to others.

●'do' and 'don't' in Japanese business meeting.

●Giving compliments and expressing gratitude.

●At the business dinner.

●Telephone conversations.

Teaching Approach

●I like using various worksheets as my teaching materials. But if students want to use textbooks, I use Genki, Japanese for Busy People, Minna no Nihongo and others.

●I also create course plans for students according to their needs. For example, travelling, JLPT preparations, business meeting /mannerism, or focused on conversations lessons.

●I have some experience in developing online teaching methods and designing new curriculums for Japanese languages lessons.
