My role is to be your mentor who support your goal. I believe in you and help you acquiring Japanese. Your course will be designed on your request based on your pace, interests, learning style and learning history.
In my classes, I try to give more time to speaking practice. Because learners cannot do this all alone. You can do writing practice at home. You can take time to look for the words and structure them carefully and try out something new. Watching short videos and listening to music can also be given as an assignment. I will help you with many picture slides. Once you get comfortable creating sentences with the new expressions and vocabulary, I will offer activities which stimulate conversations.
I do not insist on handwriting. I leave it to the learners. Handwriting helps some learners to memorize. Other learners are visual and rather work with flash cards. Nowadays, there is little necessity for handwriting. Most written communication is typed.
Beginners will have to decide on their textbook. I usually prefer the one which the learner has already been using. If the learner wants to have a new book or they have none, I can recommend one. The learner uses the textbook for doing homework, reviewing, or pre-study. I will use slides in the lessons for oral practice. For those who want conversation lessons, the materials can vary depending on the learner’s wishes.
Teaching is my joy. I appreciate each meeting that brings me the chance to learn through my teaching. Seeing the progress of my students makes me happy.

Kaorisensei is a very patient teacher, who helps me to develop my Japanese. Her emails after our lessons allow me to retain what I have learned and helps to develop my written Japanese as well. I do not find her lessons boring and her kind encouraging words makes me feel comfortable when I make non stop mistakes.

Kaori's classes are amazing. Kaori is very patient and never lacks inspiration and imagination to make learning easy and fun. We learn little by little without even realizing it, and suddenly we can make a sentence, then two, then three. I have a lot of admiration for her, and I know what I'm talking about because I taught English and French for a long time.
