Hello! How is your learning going so far?

Since you are looking at my page, I’m guessing that you are looking for a teacher who can help you! If you are trying to learn how to speak Japanese, it's your lucky day!



In my lesson, we will be talking a lot!


Are you a shy person or a beginner? Don't worry! I will help you!


I believe that talking is the most effective and fastest way to learn a new language.
When I was in school, I was so bad at studying, but when I put myself in another country and forced myself only to speak English and not make any Japanese friends, my English skills improved in such a short amount of time.


I would like to use my effective learning experience to teach here.



Kids don't learn their native language by studying; they learn naturally by listening and speaking.


So we will be talking lots during our lessons. Of course, I do not expect you to speak perfect Japanese! I know that you will make lots of mistakes; we will have a safe learning ...

Wakana sensei is extremely knowledgeable and she can explain the reasoning behind the concepts and the nuances of Japanese in a way I can relate to and easily understand. She answers any questions I have (grammar, random cultural questions etc..), which I really appreciate because I usually can't find these answers anywhere.
She is incredibly patient, accommodating, and fun. Wakana sensei itsumo arigatougozaimasu!

I had a great session with Wakana and am excited to do more. She was very interested in why I wanted to learn Japanese and is tailoring the lessons to help me get the most out of it. She made it very interesting and fun. Recommend 10/10!
