I have been teaching Japanese for over 7 years. I have taught Diploma and Advanced Diploma syllabus, Japanese for Overseas Studies and adult’s and children’s courses in schools and colleges. I am passionate about teaching and I love to see my students broaden their horizons and get to grips with Japanese culture by learning the language.
I am a Japanese native speaker teacher, who would like to introduce Japanese and Japanese culture.
