Once you sign up, unless you are a complete beginner, I will ask you some questions both in English and Japanese to assess your proficiency. I will prepare the class material that are unique to your level and interests.

We will work hard, but I promise, it will be fun and exciting!

A little about me.

I am a Japanese native. I have been living in the SF Bay Area for over 20 years and am fluent in English. I have taught at UC Davis as a teaching assistant, and at a local high school as a guest teacher for the summer program. Currently, I work with both students and professionals as a private tutor.

Look forward to meeting with you!
