Q. プロフィールによると、17年以上海外にお住まいなんですね!住んだことがある国や特に記憶に残っている海外での経験があれば教えて頂けますか?



To those who would like to learn Nihongo 日本語 with me:

Hello Everyone, my name is Keiko. I am from Japan, and have over 20 years of teaching experience ranging from teaching in Japan, Australia, and Malaysia. I have taught in schools, adult education and in private tutoring or group lessons and across different age groups.  

I am a very friendly, enthusiastic and patient teacher who strives to meet the abilities, interests and needs of the students. I am passionate about making the learning meaningful to each individual while making sure the student feels confident and motivated in expressing her/himself. 

(Celebrating the graduation with the students - it was the school's custom that boys and girls swap their uniforms on the final day of their schooling.) 

I am particularly good at teaching beginners and intermediate students to build up skills and knowledge in Japanese. I have a diverse range of materials and units of works, so if you don’t know where to start, don’t worry :) Or if you have any particular goals to achieve, please let me know - I will cater for your needs.

Living overseas more than 17 years helped me become more culturally sensitive and aware of my own background - Japanese culture, traditions, values and ways of thinking. If these are of your interests, I can help you deepen your understanding.

(Japan trip with my students, at Itsukushima)

 and tennis. I love keeping healthy and fit.
