After 15 years of experience working in a foreign-funded enterprise company, changed careers to become a Japanese teacher. Has been teaching at Coto since the “Iidabashi Japanese Language Institute” era.
What I keep in mind in each lesson is to make sure that every student is able to bring back one “souvenir”. It is difficult to become a complete master in just a 50 minute lesson. However, if each of my students are able to recall 1 thing they learned in class that day, then that is their “souvenir”! I may not be able to leave you with many “souvenirs” at once. But I always prepare my lessons so that everyone is able to leave with at least one!
