About me & Lesson


Hello. I’m Akari.
I’m native Japanese speaker, and online Japanese language teacher.
Until now, I’ve taught over 1,300 Japanese lessons for 390 students since April 2013. I really enjoy this job, and I feel this job is my calling.

I’ve taught students in North America, and Europe, South America, and Asian countries. Majority of them are from US, Canada, UK, Australia-English speaking countries, but some of my students are from Russia, Brazil, Italy, Finland, Norway, Pakistan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc. Very diverse and I really enjoying it.

I believe learning new language make us rich in many aspects, and open the door to the new world. Let’s learn new culture, history, values, and language itself together!

[My interests and experiences]

I like traveling. I have traveled to over fifteen countries, Australia, Fiji, US, NZ, Thailand, Singapore, Greece, The Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, and Canada. I enjoy meeting people and seeing beautiful landscapes.

In Japan, I worked for a travel company, and  international youth programs etc. 2012 to 2015, I’ve worked in Canada, and in January 2015, I came back to Japan.

I’ve worked in the tourism industry, so I’m good at making trip plan. I used to live in Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima, and now I came back to Kyoto again. So I can advise you where to go in Japan.

In my lessons, we can use my online textbook, video, and audio materials.

I’d like to exchange knowledge, not only teaching language.
I get some new information from each lessons, and I’d also want to give you new, fun information.
I believe one of the great things about learning a new language is like opening a door to a new world.

I’m looking forward to talking to you 🙂
