What is your goal?

Hi, everyone! I am Naoko at Ithaca Online. I live in upstate New York and have been teaching Japanese online and in-person since 2010.

My lessons are fun, useful and 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, students will write composition homework every time, and we will 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!​
