🌸Certified teacher from Japan🌸Beginners welcome! Learn Japanese in a fun environment
Studying a new language is hard and scary! I know, I'm right there with you! I have a lot of friends who study Japanese. Seeing them learning Japanese made me want to help them, so I decided to become a teacher. I know how frustrating it is to not be able to say what you want to say in a different language and to feel like you sound like a child. I went through that too and still feel that way, to be honest! I can be very patient because I understand the difficulty of learning languages. With me, you don't need to be afraid of making mistakes!😉
About Saki S.

🌸About Me🌸 Hi there! I am Saki. Thank you for checking my profile. I am from Miyazaki prefecture in Japan and currently living in Hawaii. I studied English in college and have been living in the United States for almost 7 years, so you don't need to worry even if you are a complete beginner in learning Japanese! ✌ I also love manga and anime! Let's practice Japanese together and talk about anime 😀 🌸My lessons🌸 We will start with Hiragana and some basic grammar. If you already know Hiragana and Katakana, or if you rather study them outside of the lesson, we will skip them and start from grammar. I use Genki, Nakama, and other textbooks for this lesson. We can go as slow as you want 🙆‍♀️ Who this course is for: ・It's perfect for complete beginners with zero experience studying Japanese ・It's also great for anyone who does have a little bit of experience studying Japanese but needs help to keep going What you’ll learn: ・You will learn Japanese characters such as Hiragana, Katakana and some Kanji ・We will start from basic greetings and introductions ・You will eventually learn how to say things like "I like eating more than cooking" or "Why don't we visit Japan this summer?" This lesson includes: ・Lesson materials are provided. You do not need to purchase textbooks. ・Lots of speaking practice! ・Fun quizzes and games. ・Interesting Japanese culture facts such as "Flowers you should never bring to see someone in the hospital" 😱 ・Homework is optional. * My Japanese lessons are college level. Thus, I am only accepting students who are 16 years of age and older. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me✉

I'm a beginner learner and she makes this so much fun and she is very patient. I learn so much from her every lesson and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Japanese. She is amazing and offers outside resources to help maintain what you learn in each lesson.

Saki is amazing!! So friendly, welcoming, and patient, I've only had one lesson so far and I can't wait for my next one! Thanks so much Saki!

Wish I could give Saki sensei a higher review. Even ten stars wouldn't do. I mean, where do I start? She's an amazing teacher. She's extremely patient, kind, fun and she's a really good motivator. (Also if you would like to practice something in particular, don't be afraid to ask her. She'll tailor make her lessons specifically for you). Right now we're going over various sentences from a game I'm currently playing and from there she's been teaching me various grammar points and verbs and in the mix of it all I also learn more Japanese words and also the nuances of spoken Japanese. Every class I take goes by so fast and I'm always so giddy/can't wait to take another class right after an end of a previous one. If anyone is looking for a well rounded, amazing teacher who always go above and beyond, I definitely recommend Saki sensei. 🤗
