Hi, I’m Ellie. I grew up in Japan and speak standard Japanese.

I have experiences working with non-Japanese people and can communicate well with them.

I’m aiming to have fun lessons like talking with a friend.

We can discuss what kind of activities you want to do in the lessons. If you have any requests for what to do in the lessons, feel free to tell me. Of course, just chatting is welcome too.


(2) Characteristics of the lesson

1. Comfortable atmosphere

I can adjust my vocabulary and speaking speed according to your level and ask questions so you can have a lot of speaking practice. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes; try your best and keep talking. I can speak in English when you want me to.


2. Natural Japanese

For higher-level speakers, I can talk at my native level, or adjust the speed and vocabulary to meet the goals of the lesson.


3. Support for the Japanese workplace and life in Japan

I can read and explain documents to you, check your emails and writing and help them sound natural in Japanese, and advise you on Japanese etiquette and workplace practices.


(3) My experience teaching Japanese language and culture

I tutored non-Japanese elementary and middle school students for three years when I was a college student. I always aimed to have a good friendship with the students so that they could feel relaxed in the lesson.

After I graduated, I worked in a sales department at a manufacturing company in Tokyo and at an international company with coworkers from more than 20 countries. When the company had a new employees from abroad, I taught them basic Japanese language and provided support in their adjustment to life in Japan.


(4) My hobbies and interests

Travel abroad

Southeast Asian food


American pop music and TV series


(5) Message

If you want to improve your Japanese, speaking Japanese is the best practice.

Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, let’s enjoy learning Japanese.


I’m looking forward to seeing you soon;)
