Hello everyone, I was born and raised in Japan, and recently moved overseas in order to study at university abroad.
Teaching Japanese has always been one of my interests since I came to New Zealand because I was really amazed when I found out how popular Japanese anime, manga, food etc are overseas all over the world. I also came across a lot of people who would like to get to know more about Japan and learn Japanese. Being a bilingual native Japanese speaker, I decided to teach Japanese in my free time. I used a tutor matching website to find students who were interested in Japanese tuition. I have been doing 1 on 1 tutoring for many years.
Being a native speaker, I will focus on providing you with lessons and guidance that are useful and effective in real-life situations where you need to speak/listen/read Japanese, such as conversations in Japanese in different contexts, watching Japanese movies, anime, reading manga, viewing Japanese websites and so on. I can give you tips and advice on the common mistakes foreigners make, the differences between what you learn 'on book' and what actually happens in Japan, so you know you are spending your time and effort on the 'right' things.
Now that I have some experience in teaching, I want to take my Japanese teaching to the next step and reach a wider audience, hence the reason I chose Udemy.
