Hello! My name is Shota and I’m from Japan. I have over 6 years’ experience teaching Japanese in New Zealand, Australia, South America and online and I totally understand how hard learning Japanese can be!
During our conversations we can chat about many fun topics, including Japanese culture and traditions, food, travel and anime. During the lesson I will help you with your pronunciation and suggest ways for your sentences to sound more fluent and natural. I will write notes in the skype chat box of any new vocabulary & expressions we discuss during the lesson.
I speak fluent English so if you are a beginner please don’t worry as I can explain everything to you during the lesson 😊
I believe speaking often is the key to learning a new language. If you would like to take regular lessons we can come up with a learning plan that is tailored to your needs.
I am very flexible with my lesson plans so if there is something special you would like to focus on please send me message and we can figure something out!
I am very friendly and patient and hope to see you in a lesson soon.
Note: I am also familiar with the Japanese text books "Genki" and "Kodansha Kanji".
Cancellation/Rescheduling is only possible if you send a request more than 24 hours before the lesson.

If you are unable to give me at least 24 hours notice, please do NOT click any cancel/reschedule buttons . Also, if you are more than 15 minutes late, you are considered absent, and the full lesson fee will be charged. Thank you for your understanding.
