Moreover, I translated English leaflets into Japanese for a community supporting individuals affected by homelessness during my time at university. Furthermore, I have over six years of experience practicing calligraphy in Japan, which has improved my proficiency in the different strokes of hiragana, katakana, and kanji.

Levels: JLPT N5 - N2 Beginners to upper intermediate. I will arrange your lessons for your interests and target.

I have a year of experience teaching Japanese. I taught about 10+ students from N5 to N2 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). I basically teach using the preparation text, but I also explain its origins to further deepen understanding. I'm a native Japanese engineer working in London. I had worked as a plant engineer in Japan for over 10 years. When I first arrived in London, I had a hard time communicating in English as a professional. Also I taught Japanese to fellow engineers from all over the world to make them feel at home and more confident at work when I was in Japan. From those experiences, I understand the importance of supports on your second language to improve your competence in your profession. It would be my pleasure if I could help anyone who are interested in learning & improving Japanese.

Levels: beginner to business

I started learning Japanese as my second language from age 11 and passed JLPT exam at full score (180/180) at age 16. I majored in East Asia Studies with a focus on Japan in undergrad and grad school and I studied in Japan. I taught beginner level Japanese at University of Michigan- Ann Arbor during my Masters program. Since graduation, I have been working in the finance industry in a Japanese client-facing role and used business Japan (Keigo) daily. My accent is standard Tokyo accent (hyojyungo) and most clients assume I am a native speaker. I believe my experience of acquiring Japanese as a second language will benefit you as a learner. I can customize the tutoring session based on your needs, be it casual conversation, JLPT prep, or Japanese business email writing. Please feel free to email me for further discussion. Thank you

Levels: Intermediate or advanced learners are preferable, but any level of learners are welcome.

Recent Ph.D. award in Applied Linguistics. My research topic was pragmatic development in foreign language learning. I investigated how learners could learn and improve their sense of politeness, such as making a request appropriately in a given context. Learning a language requires learning the culture where the language is spoken. Considering how people in Japan generally attach importance to being polite or formal in public, it is important for the learners of Japanese to understand such culture as well. I believe utilising the knowledge acquired through my Ph.D. study into teaching will be beneficial to the learners of Japanese.

I've been teaching Japanese for 6 years to beginners and lower intermediate students (JLPT N5 to N4). I regularly tutor both teen and adult learners via online Skype lessons. I mainly use a text book called Genki in my lessons, which covers reading, writing, speaking and listening. All of my lessons are planned around the individual learner in order to give them the best start on their Japanese journey. Some learners retain information best through a conversational approach, mixed with learning the grammar basics. For others, it may be more fun and beneficial to learn some textbook Japanese with a side of examples from Japanese movies, anime and songs you like! I have experience teaching all kinds students and conditions such as dyslexia or autism are no barrier to learning Japanese! 


The first lesson is 50% off, do not hesitate to contact me.

I am an experienced and well-qualified Japanese teacher for Japanese students studying the National Curriculum and for pupils learning Japanese as a foreign language. 

I am Japanese born in Niigata and educated in Yokohama and Tokyo in Japan. 

I have another carrier to choose from when I was young, but I decided to be a Japanese teacher because I loved Kanji characters and reading books. I was a bookworm ;) 

I have been teaching in Japanese schools in Japan and after moving to UK continued teaching for more than 10 years. 

While I was working in a Japanese secondary school, I felt the necessity to teach Japanese as a foreign language. I completed my teaching course as a Linguist and started to teach after moving to UK.  

My students are from 3 years old to 75 years old. 

I love teaching because I love to see pupils' smiles when they achieved something and it is such a great pleasure to see their enthusiasm for the Japanese language and culture and makes me feel that I want to help more to pull them to a good standard. 

I like playing Greek music, watching good movies including anime, reading nice books, cooking, eating out and travelling, basically, I love to enjoy my life and stay happy.
