Hello! My name is Naoko, a native Japanese. I am friendly and enthusiastic teacher.
I moved to New York in 2010 and have been teaching Japanese as a private tutor for 5 years.
The reason why I became a Japanese teacher is for telling everyone learning Japanese, "Japan is very modern country" and "Japanese food makes you healthy" . Most of Japanese don't wear kimono everyday usually, there is no samurai. It is not 100 years ago. And It is said that Japanese food prevent overweight according to a theory of dietary therapy on traditional Chinese medicine. I would be happy to have casual talk about Japan without worries about grammar mistake or sound error.
I have many students from the beginner to advanced level with the age group between 3 to 65 years old.
Recently, I started new class ; teaching to Japanese children who currently live in the U.S. for catching up with Japanese school curriculum in Japan.
I really enjoy my work and the interaction with people from all over the world.
