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. However, if you are unable to give at least 24 hours notice before cancelling/rescheduling a lesson, the full lesson fee will be charged. 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.
This means old school cool. It has a good meaning and is difficult to express with English.
