About Yoshiko

Do you need help learning Japanese?
Planning a trip to Tokyo or Kyoto?
Need conversation skills?

My name is Yoshiko, and I am a native from Tokyo. I've lived in Marin County for the last 12 years.
I have taught working professionals at Sony's own language school in Tokyo and have been helping young adults and children in the SF Bay Area for many years. I am also a Japanese translator and an artist.

I can work with your textbook or material of your choosing. Possible areas of focus for your lessons:
== Conversation and speech: I can help improve your pronunciation and intonation, smoothing out "bumps" you may have in your delivery to sound more like a native. Also I can help you find a speech style that reflects how you want to be regarded, or what feels (more) natural to you.
== Reading and comprehension: Increasing your reading ability will speed up your learning in other areas. I can assist you get through a book, or help you find the information you need.
== Writing: improve handwriting, practice typing, or composing your first Japanese story.

I'd be happy to meet you in Corte Madera for a free 15 minute assessment and a 2-way interview. Later we can discuss a realistic goal and steps to get you there. If you like it, we can start your first lesson.

** Due to my current schedule, I am available on Mondays only. I will do my best to accommodate on other days.

Ja-ne!
