Hi! My name is Hiroko. Please call me “Hiro”.
I was born and raised in Shizuoka, Japan and speak standard Japanese without any accent and currently live in Brisbane, Australia.
I used to work as an early childhood educator at a daycare in Sydney and obtain a valid blue card (working with children check), so “Japanese lessons for children” are also welcome! ;)
I love looking after children, my clients.
Before moving to Australia, I was working as a concierge in Tokyo, so business Japanese & Keigo (respectful Japanese) lessons are also welcome! ;)
I m interested in different cultures and love meeting with people from all over the world. Therefore, before settled in Australia, I have been in the UK, USA, Thailand, Cambodia as a backpacker.
I have completed a 420 hours Japanese teaching course and have been teaching Japanese online since 2018.
If you would like to, I can prepare the files for each lesson, and send them to you in advance, or if you would like to focus on improving your talking & listening skills in Japanese, that’s also fantastic!
We can talk in Japanese as much as possible without textbooks. 😊
Just relax and let’s enjoy talking in Japanese together.

As for myself, I love animals (sometimes a wild koala visits my backyard.), watching movies (Nexflix documentaries), dance music etc...
