What is your goal?

Hi, everyone! I am Naoko at Ithaca Online. I live in the upper New York state and teach Japanese online and in-person since 2010.

I am a friendly, cheerful and enthusiastic teacher.
I love teaching
and interacting with people from all over the world. I would love to help you study. Japan has so many interesting little cultural quirks that foreigners want to know about. I know a lot about the traditional culture of Japan, feel free to ask me all the questions that you like.

My lessons are full of originality and are designed to match your level and meet your goals. For beginning students, I focus on teaching grammar first and using that grammar to practice making short sentences. For the middle and advanced levels students, we will work together to strengthen your vocabulary, listening and reading skills. Also they write composition homework every time, and we correct mistakes together in the next lesson. Advanced level students discuss one or two news articles or themes which you decide.

So why don’t you take a trial lesson and start learning Japanese with me?
I look forward to seeing you soon!​
