Here's my Social Link
１）Where are you from, exactly ?
My mom is from a little island, located in the south part, my dad is from the mountain side and I am from Osaka. After I was born, We moved to Tokyo for 10 years and then We came back to Osaka. Because of that, I know 2 major accents, standard and Osaka (well… actually more. If you read the next topic you are going to know why) and also the great nature of Japan. Yes, I’m a bit of everything !
２）What makes you an unique teacher ?
After I graduated from a national university, Hyogo University of Teacher Education, I decided to discover my country and the world.
So, I did a bicycle and hitchhiking trip, I spent every single night at someone’s house for a year in Japan. Then, I started to live in many different countries. I’ve been out of Japan for over a decade, so far.
Those experiences affect not only my understanding of cultures, but also my teaching.
My class won’t be only following the textbook, it comes with cultural perspectives through my experiences.
３）Why are you teaching ?
Spreading History and Culture : Japanese has a long history. I became addicted to knowing more deeper side of my country and sharing my knowledge to the weebs after traveling !
Love to encourage : Simply like to encourage someone. Let me teach, please ! is the sentence that’s always in my mind. I love to see you improve !
Making friends : I think this is the most beautiful part of teaching. All my students become super good friends.
Protecting my culture : After all of those experiences, I truly realized how much cultures are disappearing in this world. I wanna preserve my culture.
And more and more ……
４）Are you teaching Japanese for getting allowance like the others ?
Currently, I have been providing group lessons for kids, who have different backgrounds in Vancouver, and have been teaching Japanese to anyone who loves to learn one on one.
I’ve even been creating my own contents for better Japanese teaching. I am fully committed to my time for this job, not the side business.
This is officially my main focus ;)
５）What you wanna say to students ?
Creating together with a flexible teacher is the best way to improve your language skill, I believe.
What I wanna do through our class is to concentrate on "You reach your own goal". Let me find out what is "Missing" or 'How you can improve your Japanese skills with specific methods that will adjust for your level.
And Let’s have a fun moment together ! As long as you have an interest in learning Japanese, don't hesitate to contact me ;) !
Thank you for reading.
Perfect! Haruka-san's strength include flexibility regarding scheduling and always trying to fit you in; being extremely patient, kind and a great listener; and being able to tailor your Japanese language goals into fun and innovative lessons that don't feel so stressful.
Perfect! Haruka San is such a great teacher and makes every lesson enjoyable. She is clear and concise with her explanations and super encouraging.

Perfect! Ms Haruka is my son’s fav tutor ever. He is having so much fun from his Japanese class and he never forget his Japanese tutor class schedule since he doesn’t want to miss any of it.

I've had various Japanese tutors over the years, and she is by far the best.

I was learning from Haruka during my second year university to help me catch up in a Japanese Language program. She was an absolutely amazing teacher and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone who is fun and effective to help you get to your goals!
Haruka sensei is a very kind and warm teacher. Even though I make many mistakes, she's always very patient and points out small errors in my speaking and writing. Time flies by when I have lessons with her. The best Japanese teacher with very concise explanations and provides clear and situational explanations of Japanese grammar. I would highly recommend Haruka sensei to anyone I know.
Haruka is a talented and warm teacher. She has amazing energy in teaching through play, song, and interest. Our child has learned to anticipate his lessons and has gained understanding but also a gradual openness to speaking Japanese more and more. She also brings a cultural aspect to her lessons that we appreciate so ki hand parents. We are very, very grateful to her.
Our 11 year old boy LOVES working with Haruka. She is thoughtful, patient, responsive, warm, and very skilled in keeping him engaged for a full hour, twice a week. She is very professional and responsible, and her approach is well organized and thorough. We are immensely happy with her services.
Haruka Sensei is one of the best teachers I've met. She constantly motivates me to keep pushing myself to improve my Japanese and practices causal conversations so that I can communicate in Japanese in my daily life. She also has a lot of her magical tricks to make the students memorize the grammar and conjugation of verbs.
Haruka is an incredible sensei and human being. She is full of passion and enthusiasm that is matched by her skill as a teacher. Her lessons are always well-structured yet creative - never failing to keep things fresh and interesting. She will help you work towards your Japanese goals, all the while checking in, gauging where your abilities are at, and customizing lessons accordingly. I’m constantly impressed by (and appreciative of) her knack for knowing when it’s right to push forward with new materials, and when it’s time to do some review. Highest of recommendations!
Haruka is a amazing teacher, I really recommend her. Her lessons are fun and easy to understand. She makes sure your learning at a good pace and aren’t doing to much. I’ve been able to pick up quite a bit of Japanese since I’ve started learned with her.
I've been taking lessons with Haruka for several months now, and I've seen my Japanese vocabulary greatly improve. One of the reasons is that I get a lot of practical experience speaking in Japanese, which improves both my listening and speaking skills and helps me with natural Japanese. A lot of studying with Haruka includes language practice, some homework, and natural conversation, which I find very helpful. Haruka is very friendly and patient and I really enjoy taking lessons with her!
If every teacher was like Haruka sensei, nobody would ever quit learning anymore.
What can I say more?
Lessons with her are dynamic, useful and always adapted to my level, strenght and weaknesses.
She's patient, caring, comprehensive and definitely super competent.
I couldn't recommend any better!
Haruka is a wonderfully passionate teacher. She has been understanding and patient with me over each language hurdle, and taken the time to work through it.
As a learner with dyslexia and a lot of anxiety, Haruka has never given up on me, and quickly adapted her teaching style and and approach to help me understand difficult concepts.
I cannot recommend Haruka enough, Her cheerful and energetic personality will make learning with her so much fun.
Haruka has been a great teacher for my daughter. She keeps if fun and engaging and is very patient and professional. She is also very flexible since my daughter has other activities that might require schedule changes. I'm happy that we found her.
Haruka-sensai is a really genuine and caring teacher. Her enthusiasm and knowledge makes her class extremely engaging and fun. She is the perfect teacher to help you with your Japanese language needs.
Haruka works hard at understanding where you need to learn more Japanese and in preparing materials to help you. She is also friendly and flexible and good at making conversation at the right Japanese level.
I know how she works as a professional. When she works, she literally work hard.
She is not a serious boring teacher you could imagine.
SHE is a performer, so she is worth to be chosen if you are looking for someone who you like to have a real relationship.
Haruka is THE teacher, she is really amazing !
She always finds out and brings solutions for each student with her passion and I assure many of the students are really satisfied with how she is leading them.
Her way of teaching is simply so practical and so real !!!!!
Honestly, I was one of them that had a hard time to find a good suitable teacher for myself. And I finally found Haruka-sensei here !
She has the ability to guide you to reach your own goal from different approaches. My confidence is steadily gaining every week.
I would say she is not simply a good teacher. She is a great person ! Because of her character, life experience,
I'm learning way more than languages. It's already beyond my expectation. I love it and my interest to Japan is getting larger and larger.
If you truly want to understand Japanese and keep continue your learning without quitting, I highly recommend Haruka sensei for your Japanese language classes. You'll have a nice experience with her !
Arigato gozaimasu, Haruka sensei.
