I used to live in Australia when I was 20’s, and have experiences of working at foreign companies for 11 years after I came back to Japan so I speak English too.

I have traveled all around Japan by motorbike so I know many beautiful places in Japan. I think I can help you if you are planning to visit Japan in near future.

I also did overseas travel over 80 times and visited many countries so I may have been visited your country!

Beside that, I also like playing music (playing guitar, piano and singing in an acappella chorus group). Now I’m teaching music too. Also I like to Cycling, Hiking, Camping, Scuba diving and Snorkeling. I’m also Yoga instructor as well. I’m interested in not only sports, but also very interested in Japanese history, culture and religion too.

So I’m quite curious person. Let’s talk about those topics in my lesson!

In my lesson, I focus on having natural conversation first, rather than using textbook. But It’s also possible to use your Japanese language textbook, if you have it.

Also if you are already in intermediate level and would like to get a job in Japan, I can teach you a professional business Japanese too. I can help you because I have been working in Japan for many years and have experiences of job hunting too. So let’s meet at on-line lesson soon!

About Our School
My daughter was kicked out of the classroom.

Hello, I am the representative for Lesson Market, Tomiyoshi. One day, I went to a certain school with my daughter to take a trial lesson. It was a long trip, but whenever I remember how excited my daughter was, I did not mind the trip at all. My daughter seemed to be nervous, but also very excited. Despite that, I did not think *that* would happen…

We arrived to the classroom, and class starts. It was a classroom filled with many students. It seemed like all the other students were experienced, and my daughter was the only one who was new. My daughter gets flustered. The teacher did not seem like they would pay any attention to my daugther, so the lesson continued while she fell behind. I could not bear to watch that, so I would help my daughter by whispering to her some advice while also being considerate of my surroundings. The teacher saw that, and told us “Whispering is not allowed, please leave”, and thus we were kicked out of the classroom.

I acknowledge that I broke the no-whispering rule. However, whenever I think of how much my daughter was looking forward to this day, I could not let this go. I wanted the teacher to give some attention to my daughter. Whenever I think of my daughter who was so looking forward to this day, I am overcome with sadness. I will not forget this experience. From this experience, I started Lesson Market, where you can have completely private lessons. I will not let you have a sad experience like my daughter did. I hope from the bottom of my heart, that you will enjoy your lessons.

At Lesson Market, you will be able to directly chat with your teacher. You can ask them any questions, including what materials you may need, any concerns you have, etc. Don’t worry, they won’t force you to buy anything expensive.
