Hi Everyone! My name is YUKIKO. I am a native Japanese speaker and live in Hawai'i. I speak standard accent Japanese.
I studied the effective method of teaching Japanese language to non-native speakers and got certified with Advanced Skills for Japanese Teaching .
I enjoy meeting with people from different countries and teaching Japanese very much
From age 12-16 I lived in Australia. Because of this experience, I started to have great interest in different culture and getting to know people from various countries at young age.
When I was a university student, I had a great occasion to attend as an interpreter, a group consisting of about 20 people from Germany appointed by a non-profit intercultural exchange organization to visit various cultural businesses in 4 cities in Japan.
Also, I helped exchange students from Thailand with learning Japanese for about a few months.
From then on, I have taught Japanese to people in/from various countries like England, US, Philippines etc.
Japanese is a very unique language and maybe tough to understand as you go on, but I'M HERE TO HELP YOU!
Teaching style：I usually make my own learning materials customized for each student to make each lesson more active and fun. I also I have Genki for Beginners and some other textbooks for intermediate learners if you like to study on textbooks.
If you have any materials or topics you wish to study on or talk about, we can certainly solve problems you have together.
If you are intermediate and above and like to focus on conversation, that is fine too.
I give students homework too. Materials can be articles picked from websites, books, magazines etc and sentences or conversation practice that I make, and quizzes. We'll review what you have learned at the next lesson.
Please feel free to contact me for TRIAL lesson or for any question!
My hobbies are Swimming, Power Walking, SUP(Stand-up Paddiline), Gym training, Netflix, Photograph(taking pictures), playing with/working on computer etc.
