My name is Ayaka. I was born in Japan and lived there until I was about 18 years old. Since then I have traveled to the Philippines and the United Stated.
I have bachelor degree in Psychology, and after that I started working as a counselor at ESL school in NYC. I LOVEed my job because I get to meet new people every single week, and I get to know about their culture, country, and language!
I live in Australia and pursue master degree in clinical psychology. Helping others is my passion.
My dreams are to become clinical psychologist, traveling all over the world, and living in a small townhouse with cats and dogs:)
Please kindly message me for consultation before booking my lesson!
My lesson is based on textbook (Genki 1,2 or minnano nihongo 1,2), if you are beginner/intermediate.
I am a very open, friendly, easy-going tutor. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions during my lesson.
Looking forward to working with you soon!

First lesson which consisted mainly of review (by my request) however Ayaka was very patient and taught me new things as well along the way. I'm looking forward to future lessons. Thanks again!

Ayaka- sensei is a very positive and friendly teacher! She always has a smile on her face and is awfully patient with her students. She is very encouraging for me to keep trying when something is wrong or when I am not so sure. I recommend her to anyone that's a beginner or for other kids in middle school. :)

WARNING! No sneezing allowed in her class. Kidding aside. Ayaka is a great teacher as her lessons keeps you interested and they are always fun. She is definitely friendly, not that strict, and will make you comfortable in learning Japanese. She will focus on your weakness(es) and will give you tips and tricks on how to improve it. Four lessons so far and I enjoy learning Japanese with her. I am glad to discover her here in Preply. I highly recommend Ayaka-sensei. P.S. No, I was not paid for this review.
