🌸🌸🌸About Sumiko🌸🌸🌸 🌸Born and raised in Japan 🌸I am a Japanese born in Nara City, Nara Prefecture. 🌸I live in the suburbs of Milan, Italy. 🌸I speak Japanese, English and Italian. 🌸 Graduated from the Department of English Literature, Faculty of Letters, Doshisha University, Japan 🌸 Qualified as a piano instructor 🌸 Lived in the US for 5 years, lived in Italy for 15 years \🌸 Graduated from university 🌸 From childhood until graduation from high school, I was aiming to join the piano section of a music college, but 🌸 I liked English. So, when I was in my third year of high school, I changed my career path and entered the English Department of the Faculty of Letters at Doshisha University. 🌸When I was in college, I worked part-time as a cram school instructor and a private tutor. I also joined the broadcasting club for a while, and as part of my job hunting, I attended an announcer training school during my fourth year at university. 🌸After graduating from university, I worked as an employee at a partially listed company (Mitsubishi Group Leasing Company), and then 🌸Dropped out of Irvine Valley College in California, USA. 🌸I married my Italian husband, whom I met in America. 🌸After getting married in Italy, I moved to America and lived there for about 5 years, including my student days. 🌸I moved back to Italy when my daughter and son were in elementary school and have lived there since 2008. I studied Italian at a private language school for just six months before my kids were born. However, between English and Italian, I am better at English. 🌸After returning to Italy, I took piano lessons from MASSIMO Bianchi, a disciple of pianist Bruno Canino, and taught piano to children and adults at private music schools and at home. 🌸At the same time, I taught English and Japanese to those who requested it. 🌸In 2020, I had to quit my job at a music school due to the coronavirus pandemic, and since then I have been teaching piano, English, and Japanese at home. 🌸I registered as an AmazingTalker tutor at the end of February this year, and I am really enjoying my work as I have plenty of time to work. 🌸At AT, I offer English classes focusing on grammar for Japanese students, and Japanese language classes for foreigners. 🌸Currently, I have students who are around 6 years and teenagers to adults whose Japanese level is from beginner to advanced. However, what I am best at is teaching Japanese to foreign junior high and high school students, and teaching English to Japanese junior high and high school students. 🌸I also really enjoy teaching Japanese to advanced level students. 🌸I obtained the first grade of the Practical English Proficiency Test during my university days. 🌸 I scored 542 on the TOEFL when I studied abroad in the United States. 🌸 I took the Kawai Piano Instructor Grade test and passed the practical exam. 🌸I have actually played the piano when asked to accompany ballet classes, played at local events, speak English and Japanese, and occasionally am asked by a company to work as an interpreter, so I am able to work based solely on my experience. I received it. 🌸I went through the sheet music for a concert by a pianist master I worked with in Italy, and I accompanied a violin students at a recital at a music school. It's still a wonderful memory. ✔️Kids & Adults ✔️ Exam & study abroad & work & life 😊Students of different ages and levels are welcome, improve pronunciation, learn conversation, basic knowledge of Japanese, use of grammar, multiple teaching methods, interactive and interesting😊 ✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤🏵️ Teaching style 🏵️✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤ 🏵️The teaching style is relaxed and interesting 🏵️Multiple teaching methods, learning is no longer boring 🏵️Teach pronunciation skills to help improve pronunciation 🏵️Can explain in Japanese, English, Italian 🏵️Teach the latest daily expressions and keep up with the trend 🏵️More than 20 years of teaching experience, understand the difficulties of different students in learning Japanese 🏵️Unique method to help you learn Japanese quickly 🏵️Create a pleasant classroom environment for students, cultivate a sense of language, and cultivate interest in Japanese learning 🏵️Help 0-basic adults & children express and communicate quickly, confidently and fluently 😊Welcome all children or adults who are interested in Japanese, taking a Japanese test, or preparing to study and live in Japan 😊Happy study, happy work, explore the world of Japanese together😊 ✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤🏵️Main course content🏵️✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤ 💠【Kids & Adult Japanese Conversation Class】💠 💠Unique pronunciation training, unique teaching method 💠All-round development of listening, speaking, reading and writing 💠Interesting teaching method to develop your pronunciation awareness 💠Establish a Japanese context, learn easily and happily 💠Japanese Basics and Vocabulary 💠Learn about Japanese culture, customs, and interesting things 💠Guide all students to speak boldly, gain a sense of accomplishment and learning motivation 💠Theme conversation practice: Develop teaching courses according to needs, and complete daily conversation, admission, interview, promotion and other goals within a certain period of time 🎄【Efficient word memory method】🎄 🎄Don't memorize by rote, memorize words in a practical way 🎄 Simple and fun way to accumulate vocabulary 🎄Single word roots, etymology, and word formation teaching help students quickly and easily memorize words 🎄Reading skills training to acquire vocabulary accumulation 🎄Natural phonics has a solid foundation: make listening, speaking, reading and writing more effective, more suitable for second language learners, and more interesting 🚀【Grammar Teaching】🚀 🚀Unique Japanese grammar module system teaching 🚀Lecture and practice combined with teaching, to apply what you have learned 🚀Long and difficult sentences, meaning group analysis, to help students understand long and difficult sentences 🎖️【Business Japanese】🎖️ 🎖️According to the actual situation, customize oral business conversation, written business conversation class, combined with practical business conversation scenarios, learn to use it within the specified time 🛩️【Travel Japanese】🛩️ 🛩️Years of foreign travel, study abroad, and living experience, very familiar with tourist attractions and cultural differences, daily conversations in tourism, practical Japanese for tourism ✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤📝Classroom Rules📝✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤ 📝Take notes and jot down all the useful sentences. 📝If I assign homework, please complete the homework and then go to class. 📝If you have any questions before purchasing the class, please contact the teacher 📝Welcome to discuss the study plan with me according to your needs and level before booking a class 📝If you need to cancel or reschedule the class, please be sure to notify the teacher 12 hours before the class starts 📝If you are not present for more than 15 minutes during the class time, the class will be confirmed as completed

    This teacher is incredibly kind and cheerful. They are excellent in English and this is especially beneficial for students who lack confidence in speaking Japanese, like myself. Their grammar explanations are clear and easy to understand, providing a great opportunity for review. I am very pleased with their teaching.
