 Went over pages in the book, I liked how Chito pushed me to read things I thought I couldn't read. She was able to help me through the pieces I didn't know and I learned a lot that way.

 This was one of my favorite lessons with Chito, we not only went over pages in the book but also had an informal conversation in Japanese about how trash is handled in the US vs in Japan. It was a fun and interesting conversation and I really enjoyed myself.

About me - English

Hi there!

I’m Chito. I’m a Japanese living in Tokyo. I’ve been working as a licensing specialist and English teacher for a Japanese media group. I have lived in Canada and the U.S. for 10 years. I earned my degrees (BA and MA) in my second language so I can relate to your experience in learning new languages. Let me know what you want to do with Japanese. I offer lessons tailored to your needs, level and interests. Not only advanced students, beginners are also welcome since I can teach in English, if it is helpful.

I am a very open-minded and committed teacher. I believe diversity is important as it can enrich every aspect of our life. I’m willing to learn new things. So tell me about your culture in Japanese when you are ready.

Looking forward to talking to you soon!
