About this site

Hello, I’m Ben. I’m from a small town the UK.

I have been working as an English teacher in Japan for around 10 years. During this time, I have greatly enjoyed teaching my native language to hundreds of people.

I believe people’s ability to teach is very well respected in Japan, and that respect and ability to learn from teachers is part of what makes Japan such a special place!

I created SenseiStar to bring students and teachers closer together. Here we are building a community that allow learners find teachers and get the answers they need fast, while giving teachers the opportunity to build their reputations as experts in their field by receiving SenseiStars (⭐).

For just a small initial sign up fee of JPY 3,000 for learners, you are able to send as many messages to Senseis as you like. There are absolutely no other fees like annual payments or subscription charges, and there are no adverts that distract you from learning.

The main purpose of the site is for learners to find a teacher for private lessons, but if you find a Sensei who is happy to answer quick questions in exchange for a SenseiStar, you can come here to find the answers you need too! You can see a full description of the terms of use of this website here.

This website now keeps me quite busy, but I am still teaching! You can view my profile here.

Thank you for taking this time to read this. I hope you enjoy using SenseiStar.com
