Hello! My name is Sakura. I am currently residing in Amsterdam.
I grew up in Japan, spent 11 years in Tokyo from my university days. Previously, I used to work for a mega international bank and management-consulting firm in Tokyo, so I have very professional business manner, which you might need to know in terms of working in Japan.
I am a qualified Japanese teacher, obtained certificates in UK and Japan. My experiences include teaching at a high school in Australia, a secondary school in the UK, Japanese language school in Paris and online lessons for AUS schools and Vietnamese school for technical trainee Interns.
I have taught over 200 students from very beginner to advanced class.
I believe that learning a foreign language enriches our lives because it brings us to encounter a new culture and people. I studied English, Swedish, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Czech, so I know how hard it is to learn a new language! Therefore, I understand and respect your feelings because I think Japanese is difficult. Why do you want to be fluent in Japanese? Are you interested in Japanese culture? Do you like anime / manga? Do you need it for your work? Are you a fan of Japanese cuisine? Do you want to have Japanese CVs for applying job in Japan? ( I was a HR specialists for 5 years and have seen lots of good / bad CVs )
Regardless of your reasons, I would like to help you accomplish your goal. My lesson will be conducted in Japanese as much as possible, but of course I can explain in English. Level, topic, method of teaching will be customized according to your preference, so please free to make any request. Looking forward to talking with you!
