Hello everyone! Thanks for visiting my profile page :)
Are you interested in Japanese Culture? Would you like to start learning a new language? Let's get started!!
I live in Canada for about 9 years and I teach Japanese as a private tutor for about 8 years. It's been a pleasure to meet people from all over the world, study Japanese together, and share Japanese culture.
【How do we study?】
I use a method called "Active learning". You need to study and prepare before the lesson in order to involve in the learning process actively. In that way, you can learn the language effectively. I have been learning English for over 15 years, and all I can say is the key to success is repetition and being continuous!
【Would it be possible to speak Japanese fluently?】
Many people ask me how long will it take to speak Japanese fluently. My answer is it depends on you. If you engage with Japanese more time every day, you will acquire it faster. There are many ways to engage with your learning language. It might be like watching your favorite Japanese shows or writing a diary every day in Japanese, and so on. Find a fun way to learn Japanese with me!
I accept all levels of students so if you're a beginner, I will teach you from your level of comfort.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me at the trial lesson!

My first full-length lesson with Kanako was fantastic. Kanako Sensei is very patient, communicates very clearly, and explains things quickly and easily. She is the ideal tutor. Highly, highly recommended.

I have given a review before, but thought it was worth renewing as I have now been having lessons with Kanako san for over 3 months. I really enjoy the lessons and I feel that I am learning a lot. I am rather a slow learner, but Kanako san is very patient. She is happy to structure the lessons around what is relevant to me, rather than making me learn vocabulary that is not relevant, and I have found the lessons help a lot with day to day living in Japan. I highly recommend Kanako sensei as a teacher.

My lesson with Kanako Sensei has been fruitful. Progression was lean when she was there to fine tune my understanding on certain grammar, verbs to use in different conditions, and she listened very attentively to all my queries. Besides language learning, the cultural exchange also made the lesson interesting and enjoyable. Definitely a conducive environment to make as many mistakes as you can for any keen learners. ありがとせんせい

Kanako S is an excellent tutor. She is very patient and understands the pace that I am learning at but also encourages me to push myself. Her Podcasts, Instagram and Facebook are very useful tools to the learning process as well.
