If you speak Japanese, your Japanese life will be more enjoyable and it will help you to see the Japanese culture more clearly.

I have been teaching for almost 15 years. I can teach Japanese in both English and Japanese. If you are a complete beginner, please don't worry about it. I also enjoy teaching advanced students by using Japanese only. You can study at your own pace and we can discuss your goals and create a lesson plan together.

I love teaching and I like getting asked lots of questions during each lesson. I am also learning from my students everyday.

We keep trying to understand different cultures and better understand our own culture when we are learning. I believe that learning a foreign language can be a tool for peace.

I would like to show you the beauty of the Japanese language. Please feel free to contact me   here.
